Juice Fasting For Weight Loss and Juice Fasting For Stubborn Fat!

 

How much weight will I lose on a juice fast? 

The main benefit offered by a juice fast, to those who wish to lose weight, is the speed of the weight loss. Initially, weight loss can be as high as three-to-four pounds per day, but as the fast continues, the average loss will be one pound-per-day. 

To see a person drop 30-to-40 pounds in a 30-day juice fast is to see a person totally transform his life. Self-esteem is given a boost and for the first time in their life, discipline becomes a lifestyle. The fast becomes a catalyst for a total life overhaul. People start dressing better, showing more confidence, becoming more organized, more dedicated in relationships and more at peace. 

Juice fasting for weight loss and stubborn fat

Trying to stay on a diet can turn a simple journey to the supermarket into an epic challenge of self-discipline. How can you ignore all the florescent-lit aisles of junk food offering every temptation known to the tongue when you are hungry depressed and feeling deprived? It becomes a war of desires where your willingness to surrender is quickly rewarded. 

In a culture that esteems fashion-model thinness as perfect beauty, fat is the ugly disease that must be cured. This creates an obsession with weight-loss that increases the difficulty in losing weight. It is like trying not to think of a white horse. The more you try not to think of it the more it comes back into your thoughts. 

Obsession, slow metabolism and high-calorie food are a deadly combination for weight gain. The worst offenders of weight gain are starches, fats, and refined sugars. Since the biggest part of our diet is starch in the form of breakfast cereal, cookies, cakes, pies, chips and bread, it has the greatest impact on weight gain. Starches are worse than sugar. For a short amount of time, the blood sugar will peak allowing the body to store the excess sugar as body fat. Starch is different in that it is a slow release of sugar, which is perfect for long-distance runners, however, if you are inactive, the slow-releasing sugars will be turned into body fat. Excess calories equate to excess fat. 

For many, juice fasting is a last ditch effort to lose stubborn fat that has resisted every attempt at weight reduction. Diets may have given you a short-lived victory, only to suffer defeat by one indulgence that escalates into a feeding frenzy resulting in being heavier than before the diet.



How juice fasting affects addiction to food

My war with food addiction lasted 10 long years. I had been healed from years of drug abuse, but my battle with addictive behavior was not over. I desperately wanted control over what I ate, not for weight loss, as I was thin, due to a very fast metabolism; but binge eating made me feel like garbage. 

Cookies, cakes, ice cream and chocolate were the enemies I loved. At the saturation point, where I could not stand myself anymore, I would fast and my body would recover from the damage of the abuse, but it only deepened the power of my addiction.

After 20 days of juice fasting, I would go on a feeding frenzy destroying all the benefits of the fast. My resting stomach was stuffed with the most volatile mixtures of food. Sometimes it took weeks to recover. After years of blowing fasts, the realization came that fasting was increasing my compulsiveness.

Fasting had become a drug. I longed for the freedom of the fast, that amazing feeling of being in total control. Victory tasted sweet but it never lasted. Over and over I plunged into the pit of hell, blowing the fast and enduring painful feelings of being a failure, guilt and feeling out of control. 

How the juice fasting diet affects metabolism 

The fear is that while juice fasting, the metabolism will slow down and afterward there will be more weight gained than before the fast. Initially, any calorie reduction will cause a lowering in the BMR or base metabolic rate. Cleansing will bring health that will increase metabolic performance and energy output. In other words, you will eat less and feel more energetic. 

The greatest impact you can have on increasing your resting metabolism is exercise. After a workout, you can be sitting on the couch reading while burning calories, as the muscles are grabbing glucose from the blood to replace glycogen supplies. The key to weight loss is fewer calories and more exercise. A diet high in raw food provides fewer, low-density calories, and higher-fiber, more-filling foods.
 

How the juice fasting diet affects digestion

After a juice fast, the body is more efficient. Digestion is better due to a cleaner colon. The colon walls have been cleansed of impacted feces, allowing improved absorption of nutrients. The good news is that greater efficiency equals enhanced energy. Healthy people burn more calories. They also eat less because they are more active and feel better about themselves. They don't need food as a security blanket.
