Tips for a succesful juice fast
As a beginner, the juice fasting process is not easy, but with preparation and the tips we provide here, you’ll be on your way to a succesful juice fast!
Here are some tips that helped me through my juice fast journey.
First, the benefits:
- Detox – Juice fasting cleanses your
body and digestive system of toxins. The nutrients you take in also boost
your immune system.
- Weight Loss – Fasting with fruits and
vegetables will give you nutritious calories while dropping pounds.
- End Cravings – Through juice fasting,
I was able to get rid of the caffeine, sugar and other junk food cravings.
- Clarity & Wellbeing – Disconnecting
from food gives a person free time to think clearly about other
things. You’ll find yourself using this time to improve.
Tips for a successful juice fast:
- Planning is everything. Prepare for
the week. Once making the decision to fast, we cleared out our fridge and
lined up the fresh produce for the week
- Slowing Down. If you are a gym buff,
understand that you will not have a lot of energy to work out during the
fasting. You can plan walks, yoga, or a casual bike ride for your workouts.
This will also keep your mind off of food. Take this time to slow down your
body and your mind.
- Recruit a partner. Everything
is easier when you do it as a team. My husband and I went on this first
fasting journey together and it was actually fun — congratulating each
other every night for each day we complete.
- Do your homework. Research and
educate yourself to make sure that this is for you. If you have health
conditions, make sure to check with your doctor before any major diet
The length of time to juice fast depends on you. We went on our fast for 5 days and transitioned to juicing twice a day with a raw vegan dinner. Today marks the beginning of our fourth week. Within this short period, I’ve developed a heightened sense of wellness, clarity and lost 9lbs. Awesome!
