A Juice Diet, popular for both its cleansing and weight loss benefits, can be a bit confusing for beginners. After all, what should you avoid, what juices should you drink, and how much should you have in a day?
Dr. Cynthia Foster, author of the book, “Stop The Medicine,” recommends that those following the juice diet consume at least a gallon of fresh-made juice each day, or more if they are still hungry. Although commercially prepared juices are handy, the juice diet does work best with fresh, homemade juices. And the recipes are endless.
The most beneficial juice type in this type of diet is green juice, which includes a variety of healthy greens in mixtures of your choice. Popular choices are kale, spinach, chard, beet greens, dandelion leaf, and parsley. When it comes to adding fiber, cabbage and broccoli, along with celery, are outstanding, and a little bit of fruit added in can make these juices delicious as well. If you’re partial to root vegetables, mixtures of carrots, sweet potatoes, and onions can provide ample vitamin A, and a few apples added in can sweeten the pot.
Although most would love to stick to only fruits on a juice diet, you’ll get the most benefits from plenty of vegetables. For your fruit juices, stick to recipes that call for apples, citrus, and grapes, although pears, cantaloupe, strawberries, and pineapples are also good additions.
A juice diet can be a great way to jumpstart a new, healthy lifestyle or support your already clean eating style. Just play around with recipes, have some fun, and enjoy the benefits of juicing! If the Juice Diet is a bit extreme for you, here are some great tips on juice recipes for weight loss.
