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.

juicing is my secret to stay motivated, energized and keep my food and nutrient intake under control. it also helps me stay hydrated so i last longer during my runs and hot yoga. what i do is i try to drink a big glass of water, and throughout the day i drink fresh, nutrient dense juice. when your body is not getting much other things but the nutrient rich green juices you're feeding it, you'll absorb more of the goodness. plus juice cleansing really jumpstarts healthy habits and mindfulness.
my favorite juices are the blueprint juices, but i also get local freshly made juices delivered to my house. some people also get their own juicer and buy pounds and pounds of fruits and vegetables and juice it themselves, but i like the convenience of premade, unpasterized juices.
I love Hawaiin Punch. I found out they make 10 calorie add to water packets!!! I keep them on me in every flavor. It makes it easy to get my juice craving and daily water!!! Only 10 calories and none of the added sugar in the pre-made juices.
You can find them in the juice aisle next to the Crystal Light in WalMart
