No: Fitness takes time. Muscles, including the cardiovascular system, need time to adapt to the rigor of exercise, incorporate proper foods and grow, tendons and joints need to stabilize. Juicing can eliminate the dietary bulk that is needed for proper physiological functioning. Also, juicing may not provide sufficient calories to fuel workouts.

Get help: In order to come up with a plan that will work for you, you will need someone who is an expert in that area to help you. Either a fitness coach, nutritionist, or ideally a doctor who knows how to help you in all of those areas. Exercise and diet are key ingredients to weight loss but each person is different and has different needs for that.
