So 7 days of the Juice diet and time to see what we had lost.
Husband lost 2 pounds so know weighs 308 pounds
I lost 1 pound and I weigh 162 pounds
It is a loss but not what had hoped for. Seven days of Juice and NO Cheating resulted in a small loss.
It cost us a lot more to buy in the fruit and vegetables for juicing than if I had bought in salad stuff and other foods, plus buying the juicing machine.
We are not impressed as we had hoped for at least a 4 pound loss, all I can say it was worth the effort to get DH back into wanting to get healthy. However he was not happy with only a loss of 2 pounds and said as much.
I have persuaded my husband to carry on and use the juice as a means to keep the sweet cravings at bay and to eat a healthy diet with more vegetables and salads.
I have also said that I would watch the portion sizes and with his help we can work on the meal plans together.
All in all not a total disaster and it has helped get DH back into the weight loss and healthy eating mode again.
Would I do a Juice diet again?
No, but I would say this, having fresh Juice as part of the diet will be part the diet as it helps keep the craving for something sweet at bay.
