Juice Diet Recipes for Weight Loss | Juice Diet Plan



Drinking fresh made juices can be a great addition to any diet program even though juicing is not a weight loss program in itself. Even though some people undertake juice fasts to lose weight, I think this can be a very dramatic way of losing weight and can fall into the category of ‘yo yo diets’. In the end those who keep a healthy weight stay moderate and don’t use extreme methods. Juice fasting can be a great way to detox but this is only recommended if you already have a somewhat healthy diet. Otherwise the detox might be too intense and release more toxins than you can handle.

Fruit Juice or Vegetable Juice
A key part of any healthy eating program should be to balance blood sugar levels and keep them even. Erratic blood sugar levels can lead to carbohydrate/sugar cravings and irritability that can make your weight loss aims more difficult. For this reason, I recommend sticking with vegetable juices mostly. Fruit juices contain a lot more sugar than vegetable juices. A juice diet recipe that includes some hearty carrot juice can make a great snack that helps keep blood sugar even and therefore aid a juice diet plan.

The Nutrient Factor
All fresh made juices are excellent source of nutrition that can help us to feel more energetic and fight of some of the ‘blues’ of dieting. With many diet programs there is the problem of not getting enough nutrition in your diet as a result of eating less food/calories. Juicing can provide extra nutrition in abundance.

Fat Burning Herbs and Spices
There are group of foods that can help us to burn a few extra calories each day because of their effect upon are metabolism and other factors. These foods can be used in our juice diet recipes to help our weight loss efforts. Of course, I am not talking about salmon and whole grains for your juice diet recipes but herbs and spices that can be added to your fresh juices.

Cinnamon is great because of its scientifically proven ability to regulate blood sugar levels. Even blood sugar = less cravings :-)

Cayenne Pepper can add sip to the taste and the fat burning effectiveness of your juice diet recipes. Hot spices have been shown to help raise the metabolism for up to 3 hours after consuming them

Ginger, just like cayenne pepper, raises the metabolism so more calories can be burned each day. Ginger is also great for joint pain and inflammation.

    I too am a beginner at juicing. My question is, do you drink the juices in the morning, all day, or before meals? Or do you replace meals with juices?

    Hi Jess,

    There are different ways to go about. Personally I don’t think it is a good idea to replace meals with juice as a form of dieting, but some people do go about it that way. By drinking only juice to lose weight, at least long term, the body will be getting very few calories and be hard to maintain. However, as a drink in the morning or inbetween meals, juicing is the perfect and healthy snack.

    I have found replacing breakfast with juices much better for the get up and go. I was a coffee drinker. I never have time for much with two kids and a husband to get out the door and me to work. The trick is to make your juices when you’re cooking dinner.
