Discover The Fruit Juice Diet

Aug 4, 2008
It can be difficult to lose weight sometimes. You know when you have been exercising and eating right, but you just can't get rid of that last 3-7 pounds that seem to cling to areas like your midsection? If you go on a organic fruit juice diet for a couple of days the weight will drop right off.

Using fruits like watermelon and lemons, an organic fruit juice diet causes the excess calorie drop needed for the body to eliminate stored fat. Such a diet is used regularly in Hollywood where some careers rely on looks. Fruit juice diets are also used by professional bodybuilders and professional athletes.

For the average person, however, there needs to be an understanding of a few basic principles in order to make a fruit juice diet work. If you have any medical conditions you should check with your doctor before going on a fruit juice diet.

How Long Does The Diet Last?

A fruit juice diet can last anywhere from 3 days to one week. If you have never done this type of diet before I would try for two or three days and see how you feel instead of trying to make it a week.

What Can I Expect?

Juice diets, because they cleanse your body of toxins and chemicals so quickly, can cause detoxification side effects. Around the end of the first day or on day two of the diet you may notice that you have a headache, have a stomach ache, are tired, or are irritable.

Don't take any medication and understand that the side effects will not last long. Once most of the toxins are flushed from your body, usually by day three, you should notice a drop in your weight, be sharper mentally, have increased energy levels, and feel really good.

Vegetables Should Be Included Too

It should also be known that organic vegetables should be added to your fruit juice diet. Vegetables generally have a low sugar content and are needed for your body to get the necessary vitamins and minerals it needs.

You can combine vegetables to make your juice or you can juice different types of vegetables individually. Some taste good and others not so much.

Try a few different combinations and see what you like. Just don't combine the fruit and the vegetable juice because ingesting fruit and vegetables together can cause an upset stomach.

Don't Use Processed Fruit Juice!

It is critical to avoid processed fruit juices that are loaded with simple refined sugars, such as Juicy Juice, Hawaiian Punch, Gatorade, etc. Processed sugar and high fructose corn syrup raises insulin levels, is acidic, can cause cancer, can cause diabetes, and will turn into fat when it is not burned.

When you start juice dieting you need to buy your organic fruit and vegetables and juice them with a juicing machine at home. Or you can go to your local health food store, they will often have ready made organic juice available.

But Doesn't Natural Fruit Juice Have Sugar?

The sugars in natural fruit juice are compound sugars and are loaded with nutrients. Your body can also burn through a lot of natural sugar if it needs too.

Can I Eat Any Food?

Yes you can eat if you want to, but I would eat healthy and light. However, the juice diet will work best if you can abstain from food for about three days or so. Don't pig out on food when you are done the diet either. Eat small meals at first and work your way back to your desired diet.

Drink Water

You should also include a lot of water into your fruit juice diet. Water is essential for hydration and cleansing.

Trying any diet to lose weight quickly is pointless if you aren't planning on doing the work necessary for keeping the weight off when you are done with the diet. You can only do so by following a healthy lifestyle that includes organic food and exercise. Good luck on your journey towards health and wellness!
