The fastest way to lose weight besides weight loss surgery or liposuction is to juice your way thin.
In the documentary Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead, Joe Cross is on mission to lose weight and recover from an autoimmune disease. At the beginning of the film, he weighed in at 310 lbs. Joe planed to travel across the United States in sixty days talking with Americans about food, health and longevity. During the 60 days he also vows to consume nothing but juice made from fresh vegetables and fruit. By the end of his journey, Joe has lost a lot of weight quickly and recovered from his disease. He was also extremely happy to be able to stop taking his prescription medications.
If you want to lose weight fast and improve your health, consider following a juice diet. Here’s why:
Fresh juices are the best way to get a concentrated portion of plant-based nutrients in a readily absorbable form. Once the nutrients reach your stomach, the nutrients are immediately absorbed into your system. One of the reasons juicing for weight loss works well is because you’re basically following a raw-food diet, but you’re also getting a concentrated form of nutrients.
If you usually eat your vegetables cooked, the heat destroys some nutrients and enzymes, says Micheal Murray N.D. and author of The Complete Book of Juicing: Your Delicious Guide to Youthful Vitality. Juicing also supplies a lot of cancer fighting phytonutrients, says Murray.
Not only will you lose weight quickly by juicing, you’ll also enjoy increased immunity, anti-aging effects, and better bone heath, says Nicole Cormier R.D. and co-author of The Everything Juicing Book.
Juice for Weight Loss with Organic Produce
If you’re going to go all out and juice to lose weight and improve your health, consider purchasing organic produce. Organic produce contains no pesticides and 30 percent higher levels of antioxidants, says Lauren Piscopo in the Natural Health article “Get Juiced.”
Depression, Mental Illness and Malnutrition
Many people who are overweight or obese suffer from depression. However, most health experts are not sure if people are overeating because they’re depressed or depressed because they’re overweight. Dr. Andrew Saul in the documentary Forks Over Knives states many cases of depression and mental illness are linked to malnutrition and eating fresh fruits and vegetables and juicing is one of the best ways to overcome these types of conditions. So if you’re not only overweight or obese but also depressed, juicing may likely help you tackle both excess weight and anxiety. Listen to what Dr. Saul states about juicing, niacin and depression in the YouTube video below:
Before starting a juicing program, it’s very important to talk with your doctor first.
