Raw Food Results – Juice Fasting Correctly For Weight Loss

Juicing for weight loss yields rapid results in the short-term, but it may surprise you to know juice fasting combined with colonics will help you achieve your long-term weight loss and health goals. In addition to keeping the excess weight off, juicing will help you transition to a healthier, nutrient-rich diet and eliminate bad food cravings. 

 

Juicing For Weight Loss Works: Waste = Weight!

The key is waste = weight. Removing excess waste from your body results in weight loss. Juice fasting and raw foods are the best way to awaken and loosen waste, and colonics will help remove it from your body. Read more about raw foods and losing weight here.

 

Vegetable Juicing Recipes & Fasting Tips

 

    1. Transition Before A Weight Loss Juice Fast:

               

               * Alkalinize your diet by including fresh-pressed juices (on an empty stomach), raw salads before cooked food, and whole foods.

               * Reduce/eliminate your intake of acidic/mucus-forming foods such as red meat, dairy, processed starches, and alcohol. 

               *Get a pre-fast colonic for best fasting results. 

    2. During the Weight Loss Juice Fast:

 

               * Drink approximately 1 gallon of liquid per day during a fast: Composed of a 50/50 ratio of  vegetable juice and water. See the diagram below for the benefits of drinking a substantial amount of water!

               * Get Colonics!!

 

Vegetable Juicing Recipes For Rookies – Start With 12-16 Ounces

Use equal portions of each of these or use more carrots if you’re new to juicing. As your taste buds shift, you can increase the GREENS!

     * Carrot & Romaine Lettuce

     * Carrot & Celery

     * Carrot & Cucumber

     * Carrot, Beet, & Cucumber

     * Carrot & Fennel

     *** Add a 1- 2 inch chunk of ginger to any of these for some kick & to dissolve mucus!

     *** 1 lb carrots = approx. 8 oz juice

Vegetable Juicing Recipes For Veterans – Consider 24-32 Ounces

     * Romaine & Cucumber 

     * Romaine, Cucumber, & Spinach  

     * Celery, Spinach, Lemon, & Arugula 

     * Grapefruit & Spinach (or shot of Wheatgrass)

     *** Grapefruits are low in sugar, anti-inflammatory, and help dissolve mucus. Keep fruit juice to a minimum during a fast to avoid unmanageable detox symptoms. 

     *** Add a 1- 2 inch chunk of ginger to any of these for some kick!

Colonics Are Necessary When Juicing For Weight Loss

It is crucial to keep the bowels moving when juicing for weight loss. The alkaline juices will loosen more waste than your body is capable of eliminating on its own. The more waste you release with colonics, the more weight you will shed in the long-term! Read more about juice fasting and colonics in New York City to learn more.

How To Get Rid of Acne: Natural Remedies to Decrease Inflammation, Irritation and Dehydration

Before you cleanse with Biore, peel with Dior, firm up with Chanel, and moisturize with Prevage, STOP! Learn how to get rid of acne at its roots. Your skin is your largest organ and can reflect disruption and poor health and unhappiness in your body. Sorry, there’s no easy way to say this. If you’re eating inflammatory foods you are provoking your symptoms. Eat to GLOW! Live to LOVE and LAUGH!  And cleanse with confidence to heal your skin once and for all NATURALLY!

Natural Remedies for Acne: Increase the Quality of Your Skin from the Inside Out

In our last post, we discussed what causes acne (cooked oils, dairy, etc.) and how a raw food diet can help reduce inflammation by alkalinizing the body. Use these natural food remedies for acne to help boost your skin’s overall health:

1. Fresh veggie juice supports your collagen, elasticity and hydration. No joke! Pure minerals and vitamins get absorbed immediately and begin to nourish and cleanse your body.

2. Fresh leafy greens, especially fresh vegetables and fruits (eat what’s in season), are all anti-inflammatory foods. Reduce inflammation in your body and reduce irritation and symptoms like acne, rashes, excessive oil, and dehydration. See the food-combining chart for more guidance.

3. Eat raw or cold pressed fats and oils – they lubricate body and beautify skin. Cooked oils clog your pores!

4. Drink raw organic aloe for intestinal support and use the gel from the leaf as a mask. Great for hydration, and its anti-inflammatory ingredients are wonderful natural remedies for acne.

5. Use dry brushing techniques to help remove excess mucus, toxins, and to stimulate your lymphatic system.

Raw Food Results: Raw Food Reduces Skin Ailments, Acne, Eczema

May 1, 2012 LYT By:

Stay clean by eating your greens! Do you know that an alkaline diet is one of the natural remedies for acne? When you think about what causes acne, know that it is related to what’s going on in your gut as well as your external environment.

 

What Causes Acne and Skin Ailments?

Inflammation in the body, resulting from poor dietary choices and acidic cellular waste, is often what causes acne and skin ailments. Inflammation equals irritation, provoking the skin’s natural defenses to work overtime.

The (greasy) road to inflamed skin! YIPES!

 

Foods and Conditions That Cause Inflammation:

1.  Cooked Oils

2.  Processed White Foods: breads and pastries

3.  Dairy

 4.  Animal Protein

5.  Candida or Yeast Prone Body

6.  Emotional Stress

This is not food! This is toxicity waiting to clog your cells!

 

Natural Remedies for Acne:  Rock A Raw Food Diet, Watch Your Skin Heal

Alternatively, consuming a raw food diet of green juice, salads, and fresh whole foods is a natural remedy for acne because alkalinizing the body reduces inflammation. These alkaline foods will magnetize acidic waste, yeast, and other pathogenic bacteria out of your cells and deliver them to the colon for effective removal with colon hydrotherapy. Check out “Raw Food Results” for more tips on eating a raw food detox diet! 

Spinach has anti-inflammatory characteristics & reduces redness.

Colonics Are The Best Natural Remedy For Acne

Colonics and a raw food diet are the most effective natural remedies for acne, skin ailments, and eczema. By removing acidic waste matter with colon hydrotherapy with us at LYT in New York City, you can experience a reduction in inflammation and a re-balancing of hormone-regulating glands. So, colonics help the glands reduce excess sebum oil production which, when out of balance, contribute to the causes of acne and other chronic skin ailments. You’ll see it’s like having the power of magic in your own hands!

Colonics offer your skin the “double whammy”! This powerful therapy both relaxes the nervous system (making it easier to handle stress), as well as loosens the emotions stored in cells – thereby naturally helping heal skin ailments caused by emotional toxicity.

Natalia Rose Explains Dairy’s Double Whammy

February 22, 2010 LYT By:
LYT

Continuing with the momentum of Fabulous February, Author and Nutritionist Natalia Rose shares her perspective and professional knowledge about the impact of dairy on human health. We hope this is of great value to you as you experiment with eating less or no dairy at all this month! (Hmmm, maybe you’ll even continue right on into March…) We look forward to your feedback. Thank you, Natalia, for your generous contribution and profound insights.

We hope you find this inspiring,

Joyce Rockwood & Cyndie Suarez
Co-Founders

Q: Joyce & Cyndie – What is the impact of dairy on human health?

A: Natalia:

“From my perspective as a health practitioner and active participant in this lifestyle, I believe the human digestive system was not designed to metabolize the milk of another species. We are only equipped to process our own mother’s milk. All other animal milk leaves an acid ash and mucusy bi-products in the body (it also triggers the formation of sticky mucoid matter as a self defense tool to protect the blood from foreign substance contamination). This makes for a mucus double-whammy!

Also there’s the matter of casein, the part of the protein molecule in milk that directs the size of bone growth. In cows, this casein is 300 times larger than human milk casein. The large size of these molecules makes them indigestible. Therefore they get stored in the body, often accumulating in the joints, becoming a harbinger of arthritis. These facts are further indication to me that milk is not designed for our consumption.

With the understandings about the nature of cow’s milk in mind, I believe it is possible to find a happy medium if you want to have dairy in your diet or you are seeking a gradual transition. In my experience and observation with numerous clients, I find raw milk is always far easier to digest than modern pasteurized milk products.  It is less of an affront to the body, and thereby encourages less mucoid matter to form. Raw milk is also far less acidic than pasteurized. Because it has it’s live enzymes in tact, it won’t have such a hard time leaving the body – it comes with it’s own digestive aid.  I do believe that all mainstream dairy should be avoided at all costs due to the hormones and antibiotics they contain.

Raw goat and sheep milk products are even less harmful than their bovine counterpart and, in my experience, can certainly be enjoyed as part of a very high caliber diet.

In short, other animal’s milk is not pure human food, but if the hierarchy of dairy is understood and respected, it can be fun, tasty and harmless to include as part of a highly alkaline, raw vegetable-based diet with lots of juicing and sufficient bowel cleansing.”
