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! ...Read more

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!
