Weight loss success from juicing & 1-2 small meals?

FAQ

Posted by Cupcake on 5 months ago

Hi everyone,

Just over two years ago I completed a very successful 60 day juice fast - I lost just over 17kgs and felt absolutely amazing! Fast forward to now, after my second pregnancy I have weight to loose again. I started a juice fast last Monday, which honestly I lost the hungry cravings quickly, but developed a fast racing heart rate and felt dizzy day 3 at 1am in the morning - having 2 young children who rely on me and with scarred lungs from an awful bronchitis infection during this second pregnancy, I halted the juice fast. I have little self control - I can control eating nothing, but find It very hard to limit my food intake normally, so I am quite overweight.

My question is, has anyone had great weight loss success juicing daily with a very small breakfast (thinking oatmeal, yogurt and fruit) and a very small dinner (predominately vege or salad). I feel If I add very small meals into my daily ‘juice fast’, I may avoid feeling dizzy and getting a racing heart. Has anyone got any amazing before and after weight loss images from doing a ‘juice fast’ this way?

Thank you so much for any information!

    What you are describing can help us loose weight. It won't be fast, you might loose a pound a week, maybe two. If you are not in a hurry to get there, this will do it for you. You will need a small snack or two during the day, juice or veggie/fruit will do. Otherwise our blood sugar plummets real fast, and our body dips into our fat reserves. While burning fat is what we want, the transition into fat burning mode like this can cause nasuea and dizziness. You want a smooth gradual usage of fat reserves, not a plummet caused by not eating all day.

    You will also need a small amount of protein. I turn to beans and rice and tofu for protein, with chicken or fish from time to time. I also eat my smallest meal at dinner time, and biggest at breakfast. You should also take a good multi-vitamin once a day.

    The key is to watch your calorie intake. Our body buffers calories in the form of glycogen in the muscles and liver, and we won't burn fat until that reserve is mostly depleted. If you eat enough food to maintain that reserve, you will not loose weight. Worse, one big meal not only fills up the glycogen reserve, but the excess goes to fat storage. That is why we gain weight after that holiday or buffet binge. One calorie loaded meal, and our fat reserves go up.

    It's a slow process, but it works. And it is sustainable: unlike a juice reboot, you can do this month after month after month. Be sure to check with your doctor if you have any health concerns.
