How are you doing so far? Have you had your juice today? Or, at least, have you done your grocery shopping yet? If you still haven’t had a chance to do it, I hope that you’ll soon go and get yourself fresh ingredients for some amazing juices! I just brought home a few bags of…
If you wish you could lose weight quickly, chances are you have considered fasting or juice fasting to shed some of those unwanted pounds. Perhaps you’ve seen Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead movie and want to achieve similar results for yourself. Without a doubt, juice fasting for weight loss will help you shed those pounds quickly.
Fasting is certainly a great way to give your body a break from all the hard work it is doing digesting and eliminating the foods you eat. It can do wonders to your body, allowing it to cleanse itself, heal, and – of course – lose weight.
However, if you are considering a fasting for weight loss – there is one thing you need to keep in mind.
If you are unable or unwilling to make PERMANENT changes to your diet and follow a healthy eating plan after the fast, then you will most likely gain your weight right back after the fast.
Mind you, this doesn’t necessarily mean that the benefits of the fast will go to waste – as even a couple of days of juice fast can provide your body with fantastic health benefits.
Keeping your menu to liquids – fruit, vegetable and green juices! is an excellent way to aid your body’s natural repair cycles. Since our bodies are usually far too acidic, this is a good way to help flush out all the bad things and replace them with the good ones we need.…
Watermelon juice has a delightful cooling property and watermelon’s water content is refreshing during hot summer days.
I love to just devour chilled watermelon pieces, but I hate to discard those rinds that still have lots of juicy and nutrient-rich liquid in them.
Did you know that most of nutritional content in the watermelon is in the rind? It contains chlorophyll, vitamin A, protein, potassium, zinc, iodine, nucleic acids and enzymes which aid digestion.
Well, you don’t have to throw away that rind! Simply juice it, instead!
If you don’t enjoy watermelon rind juice because it doesn’t taste as good as the pink flesh, then add other fruits to the juice (you can make delicious green juice with it!) or blend the juice with other fruits into a smoothie. Read more here……
If I drink juices and eat a healthy diet, do I still need a multivitamin?
So, let’s say you are drinking your juices (and/or smoothies), and eating a healthy, plant-rich diet. Does it mean that you don’t need supplements?
The best way to find out if you are deficient in any nutrient is to get your blood work done.
However, according to many experts, there are some nutrients that are lacking even in an ideal diet, and deficiencies can undermine your health. So, a high quality supplement can fill these gaps, ensuring that we get adequate amounts of essential micronutrients.
The following vitamins and minerals are often lacking even in a healthy, plant-based diet and need to be supplemented (the best way to find out whether or not you have any nutritional deficiency is by getting tested):…
I’m a big enthusiast of growing, eating and juicing sprouts, as it’s one of the best and cheapest super-foods that’s available. After one of my recent articles about benefits of juicing sprouts (and eating them), I received a question via email, asking me if sprouts were safe to eat. The question was: “I no longer…
One of the main reasons why people fail in their weight loss efforts, is because they don’t eat enough fruit and vegetables. When this happens, they deprive themselves of essential vitamins and minerals, which ultimately has a negative effect on their overall health and ability to lose weight. With this in mind, if you are…
The juicer that I currently use (BTW it’s the same as filmed in the Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead documentary) is Breville Juice Fountain JE98XL which you can find on Amazon or in any store that carries kitchen appliances. If you’re on the market for a juicer, it's a good juicer to consider.
