For many, it can be quite difficult to get the recommended 5 servings of fruits and vegetables every day. And nobody is likely to reach out for a cupful of broccoli, drinking up green juices can fill the nutritional gap that you’re lacking in your diet.
Juicing is the fastest way to get nutrients into your body and green vegetables are loaded with vitamins, minerals, antioxidant that give you optimal health and an immune system boost.
If you drink only fruit juice, you’ll be drinking too much sugar so a ‘green juice’ consisting of both veggies and fruits with some added protein is the way to go.
Here are some great benefits of a green juicing:
- Easier nutrient absorption.
- Feeds good bacteria in your gut.
- Helps lower cholesterol.
- Helps manage blood sugar levels.
- Improves your skin.
- Broadens the range of vegetables you eat.
- Improves athletic performance.
Option #1 – Total Green Juice Fast For Quick Weight Loss
Get inspired by Joe Cross in Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead who lost over 40 kg in 60 days by only drinking green juices throughout the day and eliminating solid food. This juicing diet plan requires a lot of perseverance to avoid the lure of food and preparation and can affect your health if not done properly. Consult a doctor before going on this kind of diet.
Try out a 3 day cleanse at a time and build up to 7 days. And only if you feel that your body can handle it, go the Joe cross way and try the 60 day long commitment.
Option #2 – Use as an Additive to Your Daily Meals
Add green juices into your daily diet maybe in place of your coffee/tea or replace unhealthy snacks such as chips, cookies, bread with a serving of detox juice. Once you can do so with ease, try having green juices as breakfast or dinner.
How to Make Detox Juice
The easiest method of juicing is to squeeze ifruits manually but an electric juicer or mixer can help you save time.
An electric juicer, can extract a larger quantity of juice over a manual juicer and all you need to do is add the ingredients.
Each detox juice recipe below is made the same way:
Step 1 – Wash all ingredients well.
Step 2 – Cut fruit and vegetables into 1-2 inch chunks. Removing peels is recommended.
Step 3 – Place all ingredients in a juicer or mixer.
Step 4 – Pulse till all the ingredients are transformed into clear liquids. If you have used a mixer, you will have to strain the mixture to remove the pulp.
