Losing weight isn’t as important as being healthy, and in today’s world, being healthy is actually quite difficult. It’s hard to find time to exercise and cook healthy meals, and foods that you can pick up on the way home from work or on the way to the kids’ soccer practice are chock full of fat, calories and preservatives. Nutrients are hard to come by in convenience foods, and vitamin supplements can provide some of what you need, but the body doesn’t absorb them as well as it does nutrients from fresh fruits and vegetables.
However, there’s something you can do about it – you don’t have to stay stuck in this rut forever! Juicing is the fastest, healthiest way to improve your nutrient intake, lose weight and feel better. You can get the nutrients of pounds of fruits and vegetables in a few glasses of juice, and there’s no way that you could possibly physically eat that much fruit or vegetables in a single day.
Adding fresh juices to your diet will increase the amount of healthy nutrients you consume each day, helping you to feel better and have more energy. If you choose to do a complete juice fast, say for 3, 10 or even 30 days, you can lose a significant amount of weight in addition to boosting your nutrient intake. You can try substituting one meal out of your day with a juice. Juice fasting will detoxify your liver and other vital organs, ridding your body of waste products and toxins. Juice fasting can be difficult, but your body will thank you for it later!
Fruits And Vegetables That Are Good For Juicing:
Carrots – Beta Carotene and Vitamin A (detoxifies the liver)
Beets – Betalains (boosts your body’s natural detox enzymes)
Cabbage – (helps to remove environmental estrogens from plastics)
Greens – Chlorophyll (cleanses the blood)
Apples & Grapefruit – Vitamin A, Potassium
Kale – Calcium, Vitamin K, A, & C, and Lutien
Blueberries – B Vitamins, Antioxidants
Ginger – Boosts the immune system and reduces inflamation
Oranges – Vitamin C
Pineapple & Pomegranates – Folic Acid, Antioxidants
Celery – Calcium
Juicing is an excellent way to improve your health, regulate your blood pressure, increase fiber intake and build the immune system. People who incorporate fresh juices into their diets or begin a juice fast report feeling more energized and healthier within just a day or two! Prolonged juicing will help you to trim unwanted fat off of your body naturally, and help to keep toxins from building up in your vital organs.
The endless combinations are also a good way not to get bored. If you haven’t tried juicing yet, go for it! It’s one of the fastest and easiest ways to improve your health!
