Can juicing help you lose weight?
The best way to lose weight is to eat healthy foods, mostly plants. Pay attention to when you are hungry and drink plenty of water. Get enough sleep and move your body to feel good.
This juice is designed with mostly low-calorie vegetables, fruits that are low in sugar, and each ingredient was carefully chosen given their weight-loss properties, backed by clinical studies.
Choosing a juicer
We use a Slow Masticating Juicer that has become our juicing companion. You will find two camps of juicers— cold-pressed (also called slow masticating) and centrifugal juicers.
The cold-pressed juicers slowly press down the produce until the dry fiber falls into a separate container.
Get an excellent Cold-Pressed juicer, also known as a slow masticating juicer.
It will be one of the best investments you have made in the year! Trust me! Make sure you check the juicer's instructions before starting, as many juicers have different working mechanisms.
Centrifugal juicers extract juice fast, spinning cut-down veggies and fruits around until the fiber and liquid separate.
They are also typically cheaper as the slow-masticating juicers are more efficient at getting more juice from your veggies and fruits.
Our juicer is a slow cold-pressed juicer, and we love it.
If you don't have a juicer, you can also make juices, following these simple tips on juicing without a juicer plus three delicious recipes.
