Do You Lose More Weight Juice Fasting Or Absolute Fast
What if I try juice fasting for 30days, I weight 160 height 5'3, im just stuck in a plateu lost 25lbs exercising & dieting but now I can't seem to loose?
Weights, not fasting: First, congrats on losing 25 pounds! the key to weight loss is your energy expenditure needs to be greater than intake. What kind of exercises are you doing? While low impact and cardiovascular exercises are great, incorporating strength training is just as important. The more muscle mass you have, the higher your metabolism and the more calories you burn at rest. ...Read more
I weight 160 and my height is 5'3 and im 21 years old, I want to try the juice fasting is it safe for me?
Not most effective: If you do it for a short period of time it's not harmful but i dont think its the best way to lose weight! you're going to shock your body, most likely consume less calories than your resting metabolic rate (calories burned by sitting and doing nothing)! this method of weight loss can cause a slow down in metabolism. When you go back to your regular diet, you may gain the weight back or worse! ...Read more
I watched a movie that showed a man losing a huge amount of weight doing juicing can you tell me more about it what is the best juicer to use?
Be Wary: Be wary of any propaganda around weight loss products. There is actually a law in the U.S. That allows 'herbal' or other products to be marketed without any shred of truth as long as they do not call the product 'medical'. Science is answering this question very well now that the fad of juicing has been happening long enough to gather data. Concentrated carbohydrate calories lead to obesity. ...Read more
Not right way: This is not the correct way to loose weight by juicing.You can only loose weight by proper nutrition, changing your eating habits in well balanced meals low in carbs, avoiding simple sugars.Diet should be low in total calories depending on how much you need to loose, and inclusive of fruits, vegetables, poultry , fish and tree nuts but limited calories.And exercise to burn some calories that's the way. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
If I am now 30 pounds overweight. If i go on a juicing diet for a month can I lose all the weight?
Probably, but why?: If you consume fewer calories than you burn, no matter what diet you are on, you will lose weight. However, once you go off that diet, you will gain all the weight back. Rather than doing fad diets, you should make an effort to eat regularly, healthy meals, low in starches and processed foods, do more exercise, so you can achieve slow but steady weight loss that you can sustain. ...Read more
I want to start juicing what is the best machine known out there for that purpose and how much weight can you lose by juicing all by itself in a month?
Juicing: weight gain: There is gathering evidence that those who juice do not lose weight but in reality gain weight. The assumptions that fruits and vegetables are 'healthy' is just that: an assumption. Fruits and vegetables are almost universally 100% carbohydrate calories and we now know that carbohydrates, especially in concentrated doses is the main cause of obesity. Juicing leads to weight gain. ...Read more
Diet and exercise: The best approach to weight loss is diet and exercise. The rule of thumb is to consume less calories than you actually need. This will vary depending on your height/weight, build, and activity level. On average, i've seen 1500 calories per day recommended. Any less, and you are doing yourself harm. Exercise about 90 min per day. www.myplate.gov is a great website for info and tracking calories. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Healthy Lifestyle: Fad diets do not work. No one can stay on them for the rest of their life & be healthy. Juice is just sugar & some vitamins & you are missing out on important nutrients. The weight you lost (usually just water weight) will come back. The best way to lose weight & keep it off is to develop a healthy lifestyle of eating 3-5 mini meals a day of nutritious foods & to exercise (any activity you like!). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
