Juicing and Weight Loss
A Juicing Diet Plan – Do They Work?A juicing diet plan allows your body to absorb more nutrients and can even be a meal-replacement, although it should not totally replace all meals for an extended period of time. A juice fast, when you only consume juiced foods, is often used as a jumpstart to introduce the body to a juicing diet. The body can quickly digest and absorb the nutrients because juicing your fruits and veggies removes the fiber, which is harder to digest. Quicker absorption of vegetables that are low in carbs and high in nutrients allows you to lose weight in a quick and healthy manner.
You Are What Your Body AbsorbsFor years we have used the phrase “you are what you eat” to scare people into following a more wholesome diet. The truth, however, is that “you are what your body absorbs.” Absorption is a key to weight loss, and most absorption occurs in the small intestines. When juicing fruits and vegetables, you get a ‘head-start’ in the absorption department, and your body is able to digest more nutrients without taking in the naked calories, sugars and refined carbohydrates.
The Fate of Most Juicing MachinesWhile juicing and weight loss go hand-in-hand, it is important to understand the commitment level required to maintain the juicing lifestyle. If you have yet to try juicing for health or for a weight-loss plan, please keep in mind that juicing is not for the weak. Juicing fruits and vegetables can be a hassle and is often time consuming and expensive. Let’s face it… that’s why most juicers end up collecting dust in the back of our cabinets.
Juicing vs. Superfood Powder DrinksAn excellent way to receive the same benefits of juicing is to find a reliable alternative that contains pure, all-natural fruit and vegetable juice extracts. A great example is Kylea’s Total Living Drinks. These superfood drink powders are an excellent alternative to juicing and far less expensive and more convenient than juicing your own fruits and veggies. It also cuts the need for any expensive juicers, while delivering the same amount of nutrients, low carbs, and high energy. Watch the Video: Is Juicing the Answer
Help Your Cells Help YouGiving your body nutrient-dense calories allows for balance to take place within your digestive system. Your body relies on fruits and vegetables to function on a cellular level, and all food is not created equal. The difference between an apple and a 100-calorie snack-pack of pretzels for example, is that the nutrients in the apple bounce around and are absorbed quickly and put to work by millions of cells, while the simple carbs in the pretzels quickly break down into sugars causing harm to the cells and stored as fat in the body. So while on your weight-loss journey, perhaps you are one of the few that can embrace juicing and make it a part of your life. Hey, if you can, it is profoundly healthy. But if that’s not something you can handle, don’t be discouraged. Just become aware of power foods and supplements that deliver nutrient-dense calories, enhance your digestion and augment your metabolism to give you a balanced body. A balanced body is a lean body. A balanced body is a healthy body.
