Low calorie, fat free, and nutrient dense, fruits and vegetables are, some may argue, even better for you when juiced. Especially if you're looking to lose weight.
Fresh juice recipes are both rich in healthy vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, while being incredibly low in calories, making it easy to get everything your body needs nutrient wise without going over your daily calorie allotment. This helps to maintain a healthy metabolism and keeps you energized for exercise, two things that can be difficult with the standard calorie-restricted weight loss diet.
Juicing has the added benefit of acting as an appetite suppressant, helping you to control cravings and prevent overeating. This is especially noticeable when it comes to sugar cravings. The complex carbohydrates found in fruits and vegetables make it easier for your body to properly metabolize the sugars present, allowing you to enjoy something a little sweet while not giving your body the traditional “high” of a pastry or other treat.
For those looking to jump start their weight loss, a brief juicing fast followed by incorporating juicing into an otherwise healthy, well-rounded diet plan can have dramatic results. A fast helps to detoxify your body, thus allowing it to process the foods you eat after the fast more efficiently. For this reason, juicing can actually speed up your weight loss process, helping you to achieve your goals more quickly while still keeping you healthy and satisfied.
