Juice Feast!


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

I can guarantee myself some progress on the scale numbers if I drink FRESH, RAW green vegetable juice. It shakes up the metabolism, flushes out the toxins, and provides loads of vitamins and minerals so my body knows it's not starving. It only takes one day (or even one meal) of juice feasting.

Use any combination of vegetables (except cabbage). You can add lemon or ginger for flavor. If you hate veggies, plug your nose. You are going to love the results! You will need a juicer or a high speed blender and a nut milk bag to strain. Try to drink at least 4 quarts (or more!) in a day.

    Juice feasting can remove a lot of weight in a short period of time, which helps me break through the de-motivation of a plateau. It makes you urinate a lot, so I'm sure a lot of the loss is water weight, but sometimes we need to get past the mental blocks so we can keep making the usual slow and steady type progress. Its great for people like myself who need to see those numbers move! In actual numbers, I've lost up to 15 pounds in a week eating raw food exclusively, but I wouldn't expect that as a typical or long-term result. Calcium is very important to proper muscle function, so please be aware of your calcium intake when trying this.

    That might be something for me to consider. It's a good alternative to diet sodas and the like too.

    This is very interesting. How much weight have you lost by drinking the vegetable juice?
