Juicing for Weight-Loss

Snap Fitness

Are you in a weight-loss “funk”? Have you ever considered juicing a few meals to help get over that plateau? Juicing provides your body with easily absorbable nutrients. It also helps flush toxins out of your system. You can replace one or more meals a day with juice or go on a juice fast with the guidance of a nutrition consultant. Upon juicing, it is best to drink it immediately since the juice loses its nutrients once it is exposed to oxygen. 

 

Here are a few of the top juices to try:

 

Carrot Juice: Ideal for post-workout, carrot juice is loaded with vitamin A, which helps repair sore muscles. This nutrient-dense vegetable juice is an ideal addition to a weight-loss program. Add some ginger if you'd like an additional flavor and nutrient kick.

 

Green Juice:  Kale and spinach are some of the healthiest greens to squeeze nutrients out of. Kale contains properties that help detoxify the body and reduce inflammation. Spinach contains thylakoids, which has the ability to depress hunger. Throw in a cucumber and an apple for more flavor.

 

Beet Juice: This root vegetable is one of the richest dietary sources of antioxidants and naturally occurring nitrates. In addition to lowering blood pressure, this juice can help the body respond to exercise by balancing oxygen and improving stamina. Toss in an apple and or orange to make this juice sweeter.
