Is that even healthy?

Ask the Nutritionist

Posted by Juiceologist on 4 years ago

I really would like a nutritionist to put my mind at ease that I'm not damaging my health.

I'm 5' 11" and my starting weight was 193.6 pounds so I'm not hugely overweight. It's the early morning of my day 4 and the scale is showing that I've lost 7.5 pounds. This is unbelievable to me. I've tried personal trainers, protein shake diets, low carb diets, PGX, and every other diet out there and I've never had these kinds of results. I even went on a reality fitness challenge show and only lost 20 pounds in 6 weeks.

My question for the nutritionists here is when does it become too much to fast? When should someone start to be concerned about rapid weightloss?

    Hi Juiceologist, Yes great question!

    Weight loss for some does tend to be rather high comparitively to other "diets" at first but this rate will not continue. Fluid shifts and the rapid change even to a healthy one, can result in quicker weight loss at first. On average, individuals can lose about 1 pound per day on just juice although for some it's less and others more in the first week.

    Be sure to drink at least 4 and generally around 4-6 juices a day of a variety of fruits/veggies and different colors. If you are exercising a lot or just wish to feel free to add protein powder, plant-based of course, once a day to your juice -- like the Reboot protein powder.

    Keep us posted!
