Weight Loss Miracle Juice

Weight loss is a function of burning more calories than you consume on a daily basis, as much as weight gain is the result of taking in more calories than your body uses. To lose a pound of fat, you must burn 3,500 more calories than you consume over a certain period of time. Healthy, sustainable weight loss doesn’t happen quickly. Losing between 1 and 2 pounds per week, or up to 8 pounds per month, is considered a safe rate of weight loss by most health professionals. In effect, many people can safely burn and/or cut up to 1,000 calories per day from their diet to promote weight loss.

If you follow a weight-loss diet based on juicing, you’ll either replace all of your meals with juice blends, or you’ll eat one healthy meal per day and take in the rest of your calories in juice. As a weight-loss method, juicing is effective because fruits and vegetables are much lower in calories — while high in vitamins and minerals — than most of the foods they replace. A typical plan includes drinking an energizing juice in the morning, drinking a mid-morning “snack,” having a cocktail of vegetables for lunch followed by an energizing mid-afternoon juice, drinking another before dinner, eating a healthy evening meal and having one more juice just before bed.

Proponents of juicing contend that consuming a high quantity and large variety of juices can leave you feeling more energized, even on a low-calorie diet. Freshly extracted juice from raw produce is nutrient-dense, containing a large amount of vitamins and minerals that your body can easily absorb. If, like many Americans, you have a hard time getting enough fresh produce in your diet, juicing is a convenient and palatable way to get your daily recommended servings. Because store-bought juice is heated during pasteurization, it doesn’t possess the same level of nutrition as freshly extracted juice. Consequently, you shouldn't use bottled, canned or frozen juice in place of juicing.

While cutting calories through diet alone is more effective than maintaining a diet of excess calories and burning them off through exercise, a combination of calorie reduction and physical activity is the best way to lose weight and keep it off. Juicing can be a healthy component of a nutritionally complete reduced-calorie diet. Ensure that you consume enough protein and fat, along with the carbohydrates and micronutrients from juice, to ensure your bodily functions work properly.
Carrot juice is also a great source of vitamin C, vitamin K and various B vitamins. Additionally, they can be rich in potassium, calcium, magnesium and trace minerals like molybdenum and copper if grown in decent soils. One way to increase the chances of a high mineral content is to choose organic carrots.

Beets or beetroot are a rich source of phytonutrients like betanin that have strong anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, coupled with a stimulating effect on the various detoxification pathways of your body and especially your liver.

Apples they are a great general detoxifier and are rich in pectin. Pectin is a type of fiber that binds to toxins in your intestines as they are digested so they can be safely excreted, well before your liver has to deal with them. In this way, eating apples regularly, as well as using them in special juices and smoothies, will help ease the workload on your liver and improve your overall health.
Lemon juice is high levels of vitamin C and great finishing tang, fresh lime is added into the juice collector before juicing to help prevent oxidization.
Ginger contains compounds to stimulate better digestion and may help protect your liver from oxidative damage that can play a part in diseases like liver fibrosis and developing a fatty liver.
  • 2 medium beets, scrubbed, ends removed and cut into wedges
  • 2 large carrots, washed, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 1 large apple, cut into wedges
  • a 1-inch piece of fresh ginger, peeled
  • 1/2 lemon, zest and pith removed
  • Wash and scrub your ingredients then turn on your juicer and start with the beet. Next juice the carrots and ginger if you’re using it, followed by the apples last. Enjoy!
Note: if you don't have a juicer:-
  1. Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth, adding a splash of apple juice if needed to get it moving.
  2. Then, place a fine mesh strainer over a large bowl and pour the juice over. Use a rubber spatula to press the pulp down and squeeze all of the juice out. Let stand for 5 minutes so you get most of the juice. Discard pulp and pour your juice into a serving glass.
