Juice Detox Diet Recipes -The Easiest Way To Lose Weight Fast

Spread the love

If your question is – What is the fastest way to lose weight? – I have the answer! With a Juice Detox Diet!

I have found that trying to lose weight can really be a very challenging process. To me the worst thing about following a diet is that it takes a lot of hard work and dedication to follow through. Most prescribed diets out there is so difficult to follow, as you have to go out and purchase a huge list of items that is included in the diet, and it is normally quite expensive to do so as well.

Normally, I just give up halfway through, as it just takes too much effort to stick to the diet plan. I personally don’t like to stick to any rules, so maybe that is part of the problem. Having to eat what the diet plan tells me to eat, is just too much of outside control for my liking. The other problem with having to follow a diet, is that somehow your mind just switches into panic mode, as you believe that you are going to have to starve to lose weight, and then you just want to stuff yourself just in case you starve!

Admittedly, to lose weight, no matter how you do it, first takes some self-control. Without that, you are not going to make it. It does help however, if you do it the easy way which takes most of the planning and hard work out of the equation. To me, that is by following a Juice Detox Diet.

It is just so easy to go out and buy some fruit and veggies, wash and cut it up, and put it in the blender! No cooking, measuring out portions, and cleaning up afterwards. The super easy, lazy way of doing things. I love it!

This is also one of the healthiest ways of dieting, as you can get all the benefit of natural vitamins and minerals from the fruit and vegetables as they retain all the goodness, not being processed or cooked.

A Way Of Life – The Fundamentals

What you have to realise is that losing weight should not be a short term goal. Fundamentally you have to change your eating habits for it to be effective in the long run. These near-starvation diets might work to lose a couple of kilos, but in the long run it is just impossible to maintain without potentially harming you health. No slimming program that does not give permanent results should be considered.

Going on a healthy Juice Detox Diet.

It will give your weight loss a kick start, and then you can follow up by replacing a meal every day with a juice. You will still have to cut out all the fattening stuff, which is really bad for your health in the first place, but I am sure that you will feel so great after the detox, that you will not be so keen to pig out on all that horrible fatty stuff anyway.

Exercising.

There is no way, I believe, that one can successfully lose weight and keep it off you don’t get some form of physical exercise at least 3 – 4 times per week. For me this has always been the determining factor. Personally, I was very active when I was young, and never had a problem with weight. It was only after I started working, and sitting in an office, that I gained weight. Every time when I wanted to lose some weight, I combined it with some form of exercise to get results. It helps to burn the calories, and build muscle mass, which is essential if you want to keep the weight off in the long run. Even if you only go for a brisk walk for half an hour every second day, or daily, which is better, it will make a difference. A good option is to get a Home Gym set up for the times when the weather is not great, so that you don’t miss your daily workout.

Enjoy Life.

Don’t deprive yourself of all the things you enjoy. You can, once a week, allow yourself a treat. Whatever you passion is, a piece of chocolate, a nice piece of cheesecake, or whatever floats your boat. By giving yourself a break from a diet now and then, it will satisfy your craving. Go out and have fun with your friends, see a show, or reward yourself with something you enjoy, like a glass of wine!

Before Starting the detox program, you should first do the following diet for 2 weeks. This is a guideline for a healthy eating plan that you can also follow once you have completed the Detox Diet.

First cut down, or eliminate completely the following from your diet:

  • Sugar
  • Refined food like cakes, sweets, cookies and soda drinks.
  • Alcohol
  • Use butter sparingly, and avoid fried foods, sauces and gravy.

Include these in your diet:

  • Eat mostly fish and chicken, and red meat not more than 3 times a week.
  • Eat mostly raw vegetable. At least 60% of the food in your plate should be raw. The cooking process kill the enzymes in the food, and we need the enzymes to break down the food in our stomach.
  • Eat at least 2 pieces of fresh fruit daily.
  • Limited quantities of nuts
  • Unrefined cereals and whole-wheat bread.

Healthy Diet Guidelines:

Breakfast:

Eat any fruit in its natural form. Chew it properly to get all the nutrients and taste out of the fruit.

Midday:

Have another fruit or glass of fruit or vegetable juice.

It is a good idea to get a really decent Juicer or Blender, as this will save you money in the long run. Check out our review on the Best Blenders for 2018

The NutriBullet is the ideal appliance if you want a compact appliance, as unlike normal juicers and blenders, it actually breaks down the cell walls of fibrous plant foods, releasing important vitamins and minerals contained within. It also has a powerful motor, which breaks down the toughest of ingredient to make the silkiest smoothies, and is easy to clean.

Before starting any diet, it is advisable to consult your doctor and discuss plans with your consultant.

  1. Thanks for providing so much valuable information. I love fruit but one of the things I really hate is veggies. The NutriBullet may be a perfect choice for me to be able to get all of the nutrients that I need while making them taste better. Thanks again!

  2. I like how you said losing weight should be a way of life not just some temporary thing. That really makes sense and I believe a lot of people treat it the wrong way. Great article.

  3. I love how you set it up day by day! Seeing what to stay away from or keep in your healthy diet is very interesting. It doesn’t seem too difficult except when you get to the days you are only juicing.

    What kinds of juices are your favorites? What fill you up the most?

    I thought about getting a Nutibullet! My brother-in-law has one and swears by it!

    Thank you for the great information!

    • Thanks for commenting, appreciate it! Hope it inspires you. Juicing is really a great way of staying healthy. It provides the enzymes needed for food assimilation. I love the combination of Carrot, beetroot, celery, cucumber and apple. One should keep your fruit and vegetable combinations separate, apple is the only fruit that can be combined with both.
      This diet will give you a lot of energy, and the raw ingredients will keep the hunger at bay.
      Enjoy!

  4. I have read through your article about the juice detox diet and i must admit this would help to kick-start a diet program. But like all diet plans they become boring after a stage and natural habits will start to creep in. It looks like you are stating that you need to do this for all the main meals but you can only consume so much juice without any meat or fish in your diet. it needs to be balanced out.

    • Thanks for the comment Andrew, appreciate it! Juicing has many health benefits, so give it a try! The actual detox diet is only for 6 days, where you just have juice. The rest of the diet includes meat and other foods.

  5. This article is packed with Information and a must read for anyone struggling or wanting to start a dieting program. I for one am going to try all the great juices you’ve put together. Thank you so much.

  6. Glad to hear this has worked for you 🙂 I too find changing my eating habits to be really difficult. I have a nutrabullet and I’m planning to start doing smoothies at lunch time. That seems to be my most difficult meal to eat healthy.

    • Hi Lynne,
      Yes, it is a great idea for lunch. Easy to take with to work and healthy! I am busy putting together a booklet with Juicing recipes, will let you know when it’s ready if you want one.
