REDUCE WITH JUICE
Losing weight is something that needs lots of determination, but not determination alone, you also need to find the right way that will help you get the desired results. Juicing is a relatively new diet trend that focuses on juicing fruits and vegetables, using the juice as a meal replacement or a supplement to meals. There are variety of health benefits that have been associated with juicing, including weight loss and increased consumption of vitamins and minerals. In addition, juicing can be a simple and tasty way to get more fruits and vegetables into your diet (especially for people who aren’t a big fan of fruits or vegetables or don’t have time to prepare them daily). Following a diet based on juicing may lead to weight loss, especially when combined with physical activity. But, let us be clear: We’re not advocates of purely liquid diets for weight loss. Most juices are missing fibre and protein—both of which are key to feeling satisfied and dropping pounds.
Then how can you “juice your weight”? Juices have lots of micro-nutrients in them and are very low in calories. The best thing about juice diet is that it does not contain any fat. It is moreover rich in vitamins, minerals and enzymes. It acts as appetite suppressant and will thus help you lose weight. Together with helping you lose weight it will also provide your body with all essential nutrients. But a lot of people tend to replace their diet with juices. It is important to make it very clear here that it is as unhealthy as gorging on unhealthy food because here you are replacing nutrients essential for the basic metabolism of your body, which juices can’t replace entirely. But, it may lead to sedentary malnourishment, only you consciously chose to be the victim in this case. Also, juicing on an occasional basis while gorging on unhealthy foods and living a sedentary lifestyle can’t help in losing weight.
Now the question also arises that is eating a fruit better or juicing? Having the whole fruits and vegetables is the best option indeed but there are certain reasons why juicing wins the day.
- Juicing increases overall fruit and vegetable intake which is not possible if we are consuming them whole.
- Juicing promotes weight loss by boosting metabolism.
- Certain vegetable juices help in improving cardiovascular health and lower the level of cholesterol in the blood.
- The high content of antioxidants and fibre helps in reducing the risk of all kinds of cancer.
But it is also very important to consult a doctor before you decide anything on your own. They may be able to provide you with additional guidance or recommend alternatives that might be more appropriate for your health. Also, it is important to get a recommendation because a doctor may be able to tell you whether juicing is good for your health after your thorough check-up, like for instance, juicing may not be suggested for a people with varying blood sugar and blood pressure along with pregnant ladies. A registered dietician is a nutrition expert that may give you a more effective diet for weight loss.
