a snack of fruit juice is just extra sugary calories, honstly if you want to have a kick start to your diet just eat super clean and super strict high protein low/no carb diet for a couple of weeks before adding in a few treats like yoghurt and the odd bit of fruit again

also get yourself gymning, the buzz is amazing and you’ll not want to undo the good work

I feel these kind of diets set you up to fail. When you restrict too many things it just makes you want more. You need to find a healthy balance 

Saying that starting your day with a veggie and fruit smoothie is a great way to Kick start your metabolism.  Make sure you exercise and before you know it you will be healthy and fitter and feel great.

Balanced, nutritionally sound meals and a diet based in research not fads is the way to lose weight. Any diet that tells you to never eat any of a whole food group makes me raise my eyebrow a bit. Moderation is key.

Sounds like a crash diet. You’ll lose a lot of weight fast, but you’ll gain it back. If you eat nothing but fluids, you’ll expel nothing but fluids.

Moderation with a good diet and working out is the 100% way to lose weight safely. You need to keep it up, though. It isn’t something you can just do whenever you want to lose weight.

@chasesgirl:  This.

This seems to be a fad in the blogger world lately–I know a LOT of them who are doing it), and it really grosses me out. This kind of thing is not good for you.

Steer clear of processed, sugary foods, give up sodas and sugary drinks, increase your water intake, exercise 30 minutes/day 4-6 days a week and you’ll see results. Just try changing your bad habits one small step at a time.

When I started on my fitness journey, I focused on small, manageable goals each week – ex: 3 workouts and under 30g of sugar every day.

Eventually, those small changes became ingrained habits.

You’re going to have “bad” days. That’s good for you and a part of life. Just get back on the horse after and don’t dwell.

@CherryWaves:  My best friend did a juice diet for a wedding she was in, and gained it ALL back the second she went off the juice diet. Even just eating salads and stuff. It’s great for a quick fix, but that’s all it is, a quick fix.

Juice diets/fasts are a spectacularly horrible idea. I just don’t understand why people do this to themselves. You don’t need a fad. You need a balanced diet. Short circuting your metabolism and shocking your body is not the way to achieve that.

Juicing (with a good quiality juicer that does not just take out the fiber and nutrients, you’re looking at a $400 juicer) is great as a supplement to what the PP’s have mentioned above.

Eat healthy and exercise, and have a raw juice or smoothie in addition to a healthy diet. There is a great website that explains why you need to get a great juicer – it will cause a blood sugar rise, thus an insulin surge, thus a blood sugar crash, which is basically like eating a piece of candy and NOT conducive to weight loss. I will try to find the site!

@MangoSong:  +1.

But, it can be used as a great in between meal snack if taken with protein or made with protein powder in a regular diet =)

I juice veggies one meal a day.  I don’t juice fruits because of the sugar.  I wouldn’t do it as my only source of nutrition though.

I did a 5-day juice fast after watching that movie.  I felt a lot lighter and more energized.  H and I still juice a lot but just as a supplement to meals or occasionally as a meal replacement.  We mostly do veggie juices with some citrus and ginger for flavor.

If you want to lose weight, count your calories. That simple.

@CherryWaves:  Nothing wrong with juicing, but some juicers are a bitch to clean, and even though it’s pretty healthy, it IS extra calories.

Just make sure you’re not snacking as well as having juices or else you won’t be helping yourself.
