Which extractor to use to make the  juicing recipes for weight loss?

There are two types of juice extractors. The first uses centrifuging which involves a vertical design that extracts the juice by grinding the pulp. As they rotate the turning system extracts the resulting juice.

These are the most common and extractors and are relatively cheap. If you are on a budget, this is the good way to derive the benefits of juicing without breaking the bank.

The second type, are chewing extractors which simulate a chewing process. They have a horizontal design that crushes and squeezes the juice from vegetables and fruits.

This procedure produces a higher quality and quantity of juice than centrifugal juicers. The design is also more effective when making green juices (chewing the spinach, the cabbage etc) and gives a higher nutritional value, since it does not destroy the structure of the fibre.

If you are going to drink juices as part of your life, I highly recommend investing in a chewing extractor. In the long term, you will derive more benefits from this way of juicing, making it well worth the money.

Once you have purchased your extractor, I encourage you to use the above detox juice recipes for weight loss and really kick start your weight loss journey.

 

6 Benefits of juicing

The benefits of juicing are numerous, one of them being that you can receive its benefits in a relatively short time. There is much research into juicing benefits, along with  documentaries that demonstrate the power of juicing to lose weight.

If you are not quite ready for a juice cleanse, incorporating juicing into your diet can still help you lose weight and improve your diet. The  juicing recipes for weight loss here will give you a good start.

Below I’ve highlighted some ways where juices can help you lose weight:

1.- Help reduce hunger

Juices gives your body the nutrients it needs. When your body is lacking nutrients, it increases hunger. So, get more nutrient, eat less, and that includes junk food.

2.- Juices provide vitamins and antioxidants

A modern lifestyle does not encourage us to eat a healthy diet. Everything is focused on speed, wolfing down whatever we can as we dash to work, or some other activity. This is further encouraged by the many Fast Food places springing up on every road.

Juices are the very definition of health fast food. They are extremly quick to make, only a matter of minutes in fact, and it gives you a fresh and delicious juice that quenches hunger instantly. This also means that you will eat less junk food.

3.- Juicing for energy 

By juicing, you skip the energy depleting digestive process, sending nutrients exactly where they are needed. According to  Jason Vale – aka “The Juice Master”, the digestion of food takes up more energy than practically any other activity:

He states:

“If you already have a clogged, overweight, tired, ill system then your body can do with all the help it can get on the digestion front.”.

 4.- Juicing for headaches

Many people struggle with migraines without realizing that staying hydrated is incredibly important when combating this condition.

Drink juices from vegetables and fruits and vegetables that are full of with minerals, such as cucumbers, celerybittergourd, and Pineapple. The last one, pineapple, is especially important as it’s one of the best anti-inflammatory foods, helping to reduce headaches considerably

5.- Taking juices gives you more energy

The best thing about consuming juices is that you will feel great and with a lot more energy. It will give you more energy to go out and start doing recreational activities, if you start to consume juice as part of your life.

6.- Taking juices for detox

Green juices are full of chlorophyll, a natural detoxifier. This element can really help you cleanse your liver and kidneys, giving you clearer, sounder sleep, and weight loss, among many other benefits.

While detoxification is complex process, research suggest when you get a large hit of phytonutrients from plant-based foods, along with eating a healthy diet, it can help to enable your body’s natural ability to detoxify.
Not only is juice tasty, but certain ingredients may help promote the body’s natural detoxification process:

  • Turmeric with lots of antioxidants, this spice helps to make essential compounds that aid body detoxification. The potent  antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds in turmeric could also help to soothe joint pain.
  • Kale this cruciferous vegetable has been shown to help up-regulate liver detoxifying enzymes, helping the body’s ability to detoxify. The powerful antioxidants in cruciferous vegetables may be cancer prevention.
  • Parsley stimulates bile production which in turn helps with detoxification process.
  • Ginger can improve digestion, helping the detoxification process. Ginger also contains a rich source of antioxidants that can help to protect against damage done during the detoxification process.
  • Apple has a element called quercitin within it, this helps up-regulate detoxifying enzymes and other compounds. Apples also contain natural fiber which promotes bowel movements and prevents health issues such as diverticulitis and even colon cancer.

 

 

2 ways to lose weight by drinking juices:

In your battle to shed the pounds, one of your best allies should be juicing for weight loss. If you decide to try making your own juicing recipes for weight loss, there are some things you should take into consideration.

1.- Losing weight with juices – restricting calories

This is the more extreme option and requires a lot of willpower, since you will be changing how your body get its energy.

This is all about calorie restriction for the sake of weight, drinking juice alone the entire day.

If you decide to this type of juice fast, you must prepare everything to prevent any will power “slip ups” .

However, be aware that because you are restricting the body of calories, when you do start eating, no matter how carefully, there will be a rebound effect. This means chances are that you may quickly gain back the weight. For this reason if we are going to drink juices to lose weight, it is important that it is not exclusively.

2.- Losing weight changing your food for juice

This option is not so restrictive, allowing you to consume juice at any time you like while still enjoying solid foods.

In this method juice acts as a type of meal replacement plan. It could mean replacing your normal breakfast with juice, or perhaps any snacks. This also helps to feed your body with vital nutrients. You will have more energy,  feel much healthier and be less hungry during the day.

A light lunch, with a good amount of proteins, accompanied by steamed vegetable, and a dinner of the same type, are an ideal complement. This way you will lose weight , without losing muscle (since you still consume proteins).

What it will also do is prevent that rebound weight gain that happens with calorie restriction. Yes, it does take longer to lose weight, but in the longterm it will stay off more easily.

Fruits Against Vegetables

Fruits Against Vegetables

 

Generally speaking, vegetables are much healthier than fruits. I’m not saying that fruits are bad, but they contain fructose which is a form of sugar (which is a thousand times healthier than the famous addition of high fructose corn syrup or high fructose corn syrup that is found in many refreshments that you consume today).

 

When you should drink your juice

Fruit consumption should be done in the morning or before exercising. This will help stop your body from storing the sugar as fat. If you don’t like the taste of vegetables, don’t worry, you can add an apple or a bit of lemon in your blender to reduce the flavor of vegetables.

The best types of vegetables to juice cruciferous vegetables for detoxing (read above). These include:

  • arugula
  • Chinese cabbage
  • broccoli
  • cabbage
  • kale.

Make sure you drink more vegetables after noon.

You are free to add any fruit or vegetable to your juice. I recommend you to experiment with the flavors. People who lose more weight tend to consume 70% to 80% of vegetables in their juices.

These days, thanks to the extractors, it is easy to combine various fruits and vegetables, masking the flavors of the vegetables.

 

Experiment,  go a little wild, try one or all of these  juicing recipes for weight loss and see which one works the best for you.

If you see some definite changes, don’t forget to share your results with us!
