Juice fasting for weight loss is not a new idea, but some people are just discovering the benefits.
It may surprise you, but some people experience very rapid weight loss on a juice fast.
You may lose several pounds a day at the start of a juice fasting weight loss program. The process may slow down over time, but many people still average out to be about a pound of lost weight per day.
I first discovered this idea when I hit a plateau in another weight loss program. Even though I was eating almost no carbs and watching my calories, I was stuck.
I tried a 3 day juice fast and lost 5 more pounds! I was hooked!
Fresh juice provides energy and calories. You can juice both fruits and vegetables to get all the vitamins that you need to have energy and variety.
How Long To Fast
A longer juice fast is preferable to a shorter one for weight loss and cleansing. However, if this is your very first fast, start with a length of one to five days.
Once you get used to juice fasting, then attempt to stretch the time into a week to ten days at a time. Some people fast for weeks at a time, but we would not recommend going much longer than a month. Instead, eating regularly for a short period of time and then going back on a fast may actually keep your body from being too efficient and give your metabolism a jump-start!
Invest in a Juicer
Having a good juicer helps, because otherwise you may spend a whole lot of money on store-bought juice that doesn’t even taste that great. You will save the money you spent on the juicer over time…and have a lot healthier and better tasting juice to drink!
