7 juicing recipes for weight loss

When it comes to losing extra pounds, juicing is the most talked over topic. We present to you these top 7 healthy juicing recipes for weight loss.

First, let us understand what juicing is all about:

WHAT IS JUICING?

Juicing is the method of extracting essential vitamins and minerals from fruits, plants and even plant roots.

The aim of juicing is to consume the goodness of liquids and taking the stress out of your digestive system.

Proponents argue that juicing allows the body to easily absorb all the nutrients.

Other Benefits Include:

1 Juicing is the quickest way to deliver all the essential vitamins and minerals to your body.

2 It eliminates the need to have an acidic diet.

3 A wholesome mixture of required fruits and vegetables can be consumed through juicing.

4 It prevents the loss of micro-nutrients due to cooking.

5 Nutrients reach majority of the cells. This results in better health, better skin, better hydration, and better immunity.

However, opponents of juicing believe that it causes more harm than benefits.

Disagreements Include:

1 Fiber Loss – Fiber is lost during the conventional juicing process.

This is essential to prevent strokes, lowering sugar, normal bowel movements and heart functioning.

Moreover, it is beneficial in lowering the risk of kidney stones.

Furthermore, it helps in reduction of skin-rash causing yeast and fungus.

2 Slow Metabolism – Since your body isn’t working hard to digest the solids, it constantly preserves energy.

This means increased lethargy, gradual weight gain, headaches and hair loss.

According to some experts, hormones act adversely and cause the skin to dry out and discolor.

MIDDLE GROUND – BLENDING?

Juicing has it’s pros and cons and science is yet to give us definitive answers. So should we switch to blending as the best alternative?

Blending allows us to take the advantages of juicing while also adding a bit of fiber and the pulp.

The idea is to fill up your glass with 3/4 of the juice and add the left-out fiber and pulp to it.

Some of our friends say it creates a perfect balance and helps achieve the weight-loss idea. Also, our readers backed this up during our weekly poll.

HOW ABOUT COLD PRESSING FRUITS AND VEGGIES?

Cold-pressing is the modern term for traditionally squeezing out juices using hand, manual juicer and even using hydraulic pressers.

Conventional blenders and juicers use blades that spin at high speeds. This process generates heat.

Some (not all) fruits and vegetables lose essential anti-oxidants and carotenoids when exposed to heat.

As a matter of fact, heat from blenders results in quick oxidation (exposure of open fruit and veggies to air). This results in the loss of vitamins like A, B, C and E.

Cold-Pressing your fruits and vegetables can slow down the oxidation process. This means getting more of the nutrients.
