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

Does prune juice help to lose weight?

Does prune juice help to lose weight?

Prune Juice: Prune juice may stimulate bowel movements, but this would be a temporary weight loss only -- and not much at that. If you're routinely constipated, consider increasing veggies, leafy greens, whole fruits (not juice -- too high in sugars to use all the time!), and other kinds of fiber. Also plenty of fresh water daily. These will help keep your GI system in good running order.

I really need to lose weight and was thinking of a juice diet. Any recommendation?

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!).

Can you lose weight with nekter juice cleanse?

Can you lose weight with nekter juice cleanse?

Yes but Don't: While I am not familiar, with, this, particular cleanse, most of them are not healthy. While you may lose weight, it will be short term. In addition, cleanses don't typically provide the full range of vitamins and nutrients which can lead to other problems. Any quick weight loss approach is likely to lead to a rebound weight increase. This explains the observation that diets lead to weight gain!

Can pickle juice help me lose weight. I heard it eats fats in the stomache?

Can pickle juice help me lose weight. I heard it eats fats in the stomache?

Don't drink it!: There is nothing healthy (quite the contrary) about drinking pickle juice straight. With some variation, pickle juice contains water, vinegar, salt, sugar. These ingredients don't "eat fats." particle size of dietary fat is decreased by the stomach's churning action. Hydrolysis of fats (triglycerides) is a complex process involving pancreatic lipase, colipase, & detergent effects of bile salts.

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

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.
