There is a good website called Reboot with Joe - you might get some hints there? If you get a chance to watch the Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead film (site links to it) then I'm sure you will feel inspired - it was on C5 recently, and just amazing. DH is looking into juicing for weight loss atm - we have the juicer, so practically there - so will watch this thread with interest
Hi, I watched the Fat, Sick and nearly dead programme recently and after that it did prompt met to start juicing. I have been doing for 7 days now. In the morning I vary my juice with smoothies using semi skimmed milk, low fat yoghurt and then fruit.
I then have one evening meal.
I must admit I do feel better and I have not had to take any hayfever medication at all since I started.
I've started having juice for breakfast. Actually just fruit and veg until lunchtime. However to avoid blood sugar issues I'm only having veg juices and eating the fruit. Works for me, though I can see it being quite expensive.
I have done this in the past and swear by it - lost 7 pounds in 3 days and felt amazing. The trick is not to go straight back to heavy foods after if you want to keep it off - and drink loads of water.
Juices should be mostly veg with a bit of fruit to sweeten it. Good recipes in The Juice Master by Jason Vale and Green for Life by Victoria Boutenko
I did it for about 7 days but combined what I had. SOme days low fat yoghurt, semi-skimmed milk and fruit (banana, pineapple, mango) and other days veg. I found them very filling, can't say I noticed a weight loss but I felt better and since doing it I was not taking any hayfever medication.
However, I think you should not do continuously as a friend of mine began feeling light headed and was getting headaches. I think is great for detox and some weight loss but again I would also suggest that you need to exercise too
Hi, my start weight was 13 stone 4 pounds, I went down to 12 stone 9 pounds then lost about another half stone in the following few months as my appetite was a bit reduced. After that Christmas I had gained about 5 pounds so went to slimming world and lost a stone to get to 11 stone 6 pounds.
Since last September I have allowed the weight to creep back on! I think I am back at 12 stone 4 pounds and staying pretty level, that's why I want to kick start my diet back off with the juicing.
I followed Jason vale and would really recommend his 7lb in 7 days book, very motivational! I tried most of his recipes but didn't follow the diet fully as some of them were mank!!!!
