What liquid or juices are good to drink to lose weight?

Weight loss: In my opinion, people often focus too much on diet supplements when considering weight loss. There is far too little emphasis on activity. Even a brisk walk once per day can raise metabolic rate for 18 hours afterward. In short, high fiber, high protein diets have a prolonged gastric transit time. These foods stay in the stomach a long time give satiety (appetite suppression). +Run & swim

I saw a movie about juicing and is it safe to only drink veggie juices for 60 days to lose weight?

Need protein and...: We need 40-50 grams of protein a day; if we don't get it from our diets we break down muscle, which is not healthy. I advise you also take a protein powder (from whey, hemp seed, rice or peas). As you lose weight it's important to get adequate vitamins & minerals to support your liver's ability to clear the toxins so a quality multivitamin is also advisable. Choose organic veggies. Good luck!

Can drinking only cranberry juice make you lose weight?

Can drinking only cranberry juice make you lose weight?

YES and NO: As an additive for weight loss, commercial cranberry juice has high sugar. However, if one drank an 8 oz glass of cranberry juice 3 x daily then one would be consuming less than 500 calories/d and be in a weight loss mode. Changing one's diet is gives the body rest for food allergies. Get dna saliva test for fitness to see what diet is best for you. Otherwise, use real cranberry juice and stevia.

Is it ok to lose weight by by eating only apple and drinking only apple juice and water for like three or seven days?

Is it ok to lose weight by by eating only apple and drinking only apple juice and water for like three or seven days?

Yes: You can lose weight by limiting your food intake, however, you will also be limiting vital nutrients your body needs to work properly. Extreme weight loss diets or plans such as this one are never a good idea as your metabolism will not work properly if your body is nutritionally depleted. You should eat a healthy diet, heavy on a variety of fruits, vegetables, purified water to fuel your body.

I need to know how to drink cabbage juice for weightloss and when. How much should I consume. Should be raw or cooked. Please tell me everything in detail. I really need to lose weight?

My opinion only: BUT the "Cabbage Juice Diet" is a FAD diet unsupported by good nutritional SENSE! See a qualified NUTRITIONIST for dietary modifications WHICH will PRODUCE and later MAINTAIN weight loss! Simple drinking cabbage juice may result in weight loss while your drinking the stuff but you will gain that weight RIGHT BACK when you stop! Be wise.....Be well HOPING this helps! Dr Z

Can detox help me lose weight? I want to lose weight so bad because im near to overweight. Is it ok to drink fruit juices only for atleast one week?

Losing weight: To lose weight, get ur resting metabolism rate done (weight loss centers do this). This determines the total number of calories you need to lose 1-2lbs/week. Decreasing 500cal/day will give you a 1lb wt loss in 1wk; drink water (1/2 your body weight), eat small meals about 150-200cal 2-4x/ (depending on your metabolism rate) and 500cal/meal at night: lean protein/veggies; avoid carbs, .

12 year old 200lbs 166cm Can not lose weight Dosent eat candy drink some orange juice Plays soccer everyday for 1Hour?

12 year old 200lbs 166cm Can not lose weight Dosent eat candy drink some orange juice Plays soccer everyday for 1Hour?

Not about candy: At that size I would first have a regular checkup done as he may already have signs of pre-diabetes and high blood pressure. Once medical issues have been ruled out, you need to meet with a clinical dietitian and find out where his extra weight is coming from. People assume that it is sweets or deserts but it can be anything he consumes that he is not using to grow or burning off in activity.

If I cut sugar out my diet except for maybe a cup of orange juice a day and drink only water and do weightlifting and walking will I lose weight?

If I cut sugar out my diet except for maybe a cup of orange juice a day and drink only water and do weightlifting and walking will I lose weight?

Maybe: You have to control two things: calories ingested calories burned that's all. The 3rd factor is your genetically given physiology/metabolism, and how efficiently you burn/utilize calories, and where the body prefers to store fat. Honestly not too much to do about these factors despite all the gimmicks that shysters promote.
