Welcome. I’m Barry and I’m going to show you how to make the most of your weight loss efforts by using fresh vegetable and fruit juices. I hope you’re ready for a life altering fat loss adventure, because I’m about to give you the tools to set sail on one.
The Best Fruits And vegetables For Weight Loss
It’s easy to fall into the trap that many juicing aficionados fall into and to drink too many high sugar foods like apples and carrots. While they taste great, they are high in sugar, spiking the levels of sugars and insulin in your blood stream.
Keep your juices focused on ingredients like broccoli, kale, cabbage, and other leafy green vegetables. Throw an apple into your garden in a cup to make it actually taste decent and you’ll be flushing toxins out of your system faster than gas prices rise before Memorial Day weekend.
Drink lots of water and put vegetables into your juicer that are high in potassium like spinach and Swiss chard. Potassium and water create a powerhouse duo that work together to flush that sodium out of your body that has been keeping bloated.
- Swiss Chard – Potassium and 13 different polyphenols that help to regulate blood sugar. (1)
- Arugula – Loaded with vitamins A, C, and folic acid for a better immune system.
- Broccoli – Vitamins A, C, and K for healthy bones and well as detoxifying phytonutrients.
- Spinach – Like Swiss chard, it’s packed with potassium to flush out that bloating sodium. (2)
- Cabbage – Vitamin B for energy and has been linked to cancer prevention. The savoy variety has the most cancer preventing qualities.
- Cucumber – High amounts of vitamin A and C. Due to its high water content it’s the basis for most of my drinks.
- Kale – Contains glucose plates which have been shown to lower instances of bladder, breast, colon, and prostate cancer.
- Beets – Contain a phytonutrient called Belarus and antioxidants that reduce inflammation. (High in sugar so use in moderation.)

Should You Detox, Fast, Or Use Juice As A Meal Replacement
If I could only choose one for you it would be a meal replacement, and the best meal to drink juice at is when your body needs nourishment the most, breakfast. A short term fast does have big benefits though.
Lightning Fast Weight Loss – How To
Juice fasting is a safe way to burn fat but not for the long term. A week long juice fast is going to make the scale move, and if you care about what the scale says, than go for it. Do a week, two weeks, thirty day, or longer juice fast. But I recommend about ten days at the longest. You’ll probably lose about 10-15 pounds in the first week once you get past the headaches, moodiness, and sluggishness that will set in after the first few days on a fruit and vegetable juice diet.
Most people don’t make it past the actual detox phase and give up. Being a quitter is something I know you don’t want to do.
And that’s because if you stick it out you’ll be handsomely rewarded. You’ll feel more energetic than you did when you were eleven. Your sense of taste and smell will be nearly overwhelming and all sort of things that ail you – asthma and irregularity for example – will likely improve.
The problem is that you can’t live on juice forever. You need protein, fiber, and fat in your diet to remain healthy and strong. If you can tolerate the side effects of the detox, than a short fast is a great way to kick start a weight loss program. But keep it to 10 days max, that should be long enough for your body to clean itself out and purge a healthy amount of fat, without you doing any long term damage.
What To Do If Your Still Hungry After Juicing For Breakfast
If an hour after you drink your juice you get hungry than eat a normal breakfast. Just give your body some time to digest the juice before you start to eat solid foods. You want your body to be able to easily absorb the nutrients from the juice. Adding solid food to your stomach will slow digestion down and nutrient absorption.
Health Benefits Beyond Fat Burning
After about a week of making juice a regular parts of my wife’s diet she realized she hadn’t had to use her inhaler in the last couple days. She has been an asthmatic since childhood. I was nothing less than blown away by this!
About two weeks after I started juicing for weight loss I noticed a pimple like red mark, that had been above my left eye for at least a year, had completely gone away. I had a clarity of mind that I had never experiences before and I had so much energy that I felt a constant and nagging need to be productive. But at the same time I was able to sleep like a baby.
What sort of other things that I couldn’t see or feel was juicing doing for me?
I can guarantee you that your energy levels are going to begin to shoot for the moon! I didn’t realize how undernourished I was and how awful I was feeling until I started to feel normal. Until my body had the proper nutrition that I had been depriving it of for decades.
