Juicing is a fantastic addition to a weight loss plan. It allows you to provide your body with ample nutrition while curbing your appetite, aiding digestion, and even boosting your energy to get you moving!
The one risk that comes with juicing for weight loss that we want to mention is that it is really, really easy to overdo sugar consumption when juicing fruits. Whereas you probably wouldn’t sit down and eat 3 apples, it’s just too easy to juice 3 apples (and all the sugar that’s in them) and down that glass.
If you’re juicing for weight loss, we highly recommend sticking mostly to vegetable juices and avoiding purely fruit juices. Check out more tips on juicing for weight loss.
Here are some low-calorie, low-sugar, HIGH-nutrient juices that aid weight loss!
This simple juice recipe is a low-calorie blend that helps promote weight loss. Beets get their brilliant hues from a not-so-well-known, but powerful, antioxidant called betalains that help your body cleanse and detoxify itself by supporting a process known as phase 2 cleansing.
During this cleansing process, small nutrient groups chemically combine with toxic substances in our body. The combination helps to neutralize the toxins and makes them water-soluble so they can be flushed out of our system through urination.
Grapefruits are also wonderful natural cleansers and cucumbers serve as a refreshing base to this power-packed juice recipe. Drink before meals to promote weight loss!
Cucumbers are pretty much green water (about 90%) so they serve as a great diluting base for stronger greens, such as kale. The same can be said of celery, which is also mostly water. These watery vegetables are obviously incredibly low in calories and high in nutrients (Vitamin A, Pantothenic Acid, Magnesium, etc.) and rich in chlorophyll. This is the ideal juice to supply your body with all the goodness of green juice without loading up on calories!
