Juicing: Initial juicing can cause change in bowels or detox reactions. Start with a small amount of fresh juice each day and increase gradually to avoid adverse reactions.

Dilute juice, +fiber: Drinking juice beverages (with or without fiber) can help with weight loss only if they don't increase the total amount of calories eaten per day. For example, mixing water with powdered fiber to make a drink will cause a person to feel fuller and have less appetite (can be helpful). However, mixing fiber with undiluted juice will give a person lots of sugar calories along with fiber (won't help)!

Having the entire fruit, fiber included, will help slow the absorption of glucose and prevent insulin spikes. Often when one is overweight they have some degree of insulin resistance. Best to not confront that with sugar loads.

15 miles weekly: The goal i give my patients is to walk the equivalent of 15 miles weekly to help increase metabolism and lose weight. The speed that you walk is not important, its the distance that is important. When you walk or how often is also not important, but it must add up to at least 15 miles weekly. You can bicycle instead, but then the goal is 45 miles a week.
