What in grapefruit juice causes you to lose weight?

It doesn't: Grapefruit does not cause one to lose weight other than filling your stomach with a low calorie beverage. By doing this you help to keep your appetite in check.

Help please! is drinking grapefruit juice a good way to lose some weight quickly?

Quick is not best: Grapefruit juice and similar pro-metabolic agents can give you an advantage, if you are doing the basics right: high fiber, lower simple carb, high quality protein, medium fat content and moving your body regularly by steadily introducing more physical activity. A body in motion, combined with a slightly net-negative calorie balance is the key to loosing weight and keeping it off.

Can sweetened grapefruit juice help with weight loss?

Can sweetened grapefruit juice help with weight loss?

No: Grapefruit juice doesn't cause or help with weight loss. It tastes good and is healthy, but you need to eat less, exercise more to lose weight. The grapefruit juice calories have to be included in your intake of calories. You have to burn off 3500 more than you take in to lose a pound. Talk to a good registered dietitian.

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.

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

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!

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

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!

Are juice cleansing good to lose weight?

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, .

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.
