Juice Diets - Juicing The Right Way
For Weight Loss
With a huge rise in health conscious diet choices such
as raw food diets, vegan and organics; juicing has become an art with juicing
machines ranging up to 700 dollars per unit. Wheat grass juicing uses a specialty
juicer which has started popularity in slow juicing in order to not destroy the
properties of the product. Centrifugal juicers are more of the mainstream in cost
and popularity but are still said to be less favorable than wheat grass style
I have been using juicing options in my clients diets including
competitors in Fitness and Figure. One of my Figure clients had developed a preference
in raw foods and juicing, opting for vegan choices save maybe some goat cheese
and eggs and had requested I focus her diets on seeds, produce and lower protein
Contrary to beliefs that only higher protein intakes will produce
lean muscle gains, she was a multiple first time winner in her Figure divisions
as an over 40 competitor competing with women half her age. Her muscle is dense
and well formed showing a 1st place Figure physique. What really stands out to
me is how she never seems to age, looking much younger than she actually is, and
she attributes this to her diet.
If you are not on a raw diet you can then
utilize whatever bulk is left and use them in muffins and various other meals.
On a raw diet plan you can make use of certain fruit and veggie bulk left from
juicing in order to get some of the fiber in by way of raw soup blends. I always
lean toward more veggies in the day than fruits and that would go for the juicers
Some of the great choices for juicing options would be:
other popular choices are oranges, apples, romaine lettuce, celery, coconut, strawberries
Parsley has a slight diuretic effect but if you add some
dandelion leaves you increase it. Fruits are always a great choice for added natural
sweetness, citrus fruits being the flavor du jour for those seeking a hint of
Juicing should be done right before you drink it because the juice
looses its nutrients as time goes by especially when it is not kept cold. If you
must pre juice then do keep it very cold and sealed well.
are the best route to take with juicing especially because you can use the skins
which retain many precious vitamins, mineral and phytochemicals yet using non
organics mean you must omit the skins which are loaded with pesticides.
would not suggest juicing all your meals unless you are on a fast or cleanse suggested
by religion or your doctor. Juicing is a great substitute for your mid morning
and mid day snacks between your main meals especially for those seeking fat loss.
addition to your juicing for those seeking higher protein in a vegan source would
be hemp protein. A meal in a glass made to blast your body with efficiency.
