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.

Juice Cleanses: Are You Really Detoxing?

November 1, 2011 LYT By:

Detox! Detox! Detox!

In record numbers, people are going on juice fasts for the purpose of cleansing.  Okay, we didn’t take a survey, but it’s hard to deny that detoxing is all the rage. From health and beauty magazines touting the cleanses of celebrities like, Gwyneth Paltrow or Beyonce, to fresh green juice companies sprouting up everywhere, we have to face facts. Juice cleansing is more than a fad, it’s gone mainstream.

While getting the detox message out is good news, (especially to the world of Standard American Dieters), it seems an important truth about the cleansing process is getting lost in all the hoopla. And here at LYT, we find that a little troubling. So, since we have a bit of expertise on this subject, we want to take a quick, closer look at juice cleanses and detoxing.

Detox 101: Just the facts, folks!

Let’s say you went on one of the increasingly popular three to five-day cleanses promoted by many juice companies.  What’s the deal? Did you really detox? Well, the answer is….

Maybe.

Now, we know some of you might be angry.  “You’re telling me, I drank vegetables for five days for nothing?” Sorry to break it to you, but going on a juice fast alone does not guarantee ACTUAL detoxification will take place. Why?

Waste Removal: The Detox Guarantee

Take a look at the dictionary definition. “Detoxification: the physiological or medicinal removal of toxic substances from a living organism.” The key word here is removal.  Something HAS to leave the body for de-toxing to take place. We repeat, HAS to leave the body.

What juice fasting accomplishes is simply the loosening of waste and poisons. And guess where that toxic gunk ends up? Yes, the colon. But, now that nasty stuff has to be eliminated or it will get reabsorbed into the tissue. So, unless you’re going to the bathroom an inordinate amount of times a day, doing a cleanse without colon hydrotherapy is not a sound idea. This is why people who fast without colonics frequently feel awful. The loosened poison is not leaving the body, so it’s swimming around their systems wreaking havoc.

Detox Cleansing: The Two-Step

So, if you’re thinking of doing a juice cleanse, the most important thing to know is that detox cleansing is a 2-part process:

1. Loosen the waste

2. Eliminate the waste

So, please remember, all you would be Detoxers. When embarking on a cleanse or as part of a lifestyle plan, always focus on this vital second step. And be sure to give us a call, because we’ve been doing colonics in New York City for over a combined 25 years.  At LYT, Colonics Rock® and waste management is our specialty.

Never forget, waste removal is the key to effective cleansing, without it, you’re just drinking juice.
