Is drinking bottle gourd juice in the morning helpful for weight loss and should I drink it on an empty stomach .... thanks ?

Is drinking bottle gourd juice in the morning helpful for weight loss and should I drink it on an empty stomach .... thanks ?

Not sure why you are: drinking gourd juice? Filtered water by itself is just fine to drink in the AM, as the more water you can drink or hydrate during weight loss, the better. Don't overdo though! Don't drink more than 1/2 weight in oz, and still need to adjust to what your doctor says is safe! If you work out, you need more.U don't want to error on the side of drinking too much water as U can dilute UR electrolytes. ...Read more

Hi..
Please suggest me any best green juice for weight loss and increase the energy...Please?

No magic here: It is popular to believe that drinking the juice from fruits/vegetables is healthier than eating the whole fruit/veggie. This probably isn't true as you are missing the fiber if you only drink the juice. However, if you like juice and won't eat the whole fruit/veggie, juice is ok. The weight loss magic? Low calorie, no magic recipe. Cautions: sugar content, micro-organisms in raw produce. ...Read more

Weight loss pill called ripped juice contains 1.3 dimethylpentylamine is its safe to take? 

Weight loss pill called ripped juice contains 1.3 dimethylpentylamine is its safe to take? 

Stimulant: Dimethylpentylamine is a stimulant. A problem with stimulants for weight loss is that, unless dietary and exercise habits change, any weight loss from it will reverse after stopping it. Stimulants can have adverse short and long term effects, including dangerous heart rhythms and high blood pressure. In my opinion, use of stimulants for weight loss should be monitored medically. ...Read more

Juicing, now is scientifically shown to be causing weight gain in many humans. This is most likely due to the concentrated carbohydrate calories in the ingredients in the juice.

It can be expensive for purchase the vegetables & fruits and time consuming for preparation.
