How can juicing help you?

Start by eating one full meal a day. If you want to start with juices in the morning just take a little bit food with it but take juice only in the afternoon and a real meal in the evening. Do plan it to fit your schedule. 

Eat a well balanced diet low on fat and high in carbohydrates including fresh vegetables. Take your time and eat the food. Do not be in a hurry because you do not want to force the stomach to produce acid to digest the food. If you force it, you may develop stomach ulcers. Make sure you drink some water first before you start eating your meal. This will prevent you from overeating.

For your juice meals, vegetable juice will be preferred, because of its potency in essential vitamins and minerals, and low sugar level but you can also use fruits if you like that.

Prepare a half cup of fresh juice and add some water to it to reduce the calorie level to the body’s need. If you feel it is too diluted you may add only 1/3 cup of water to it. You only do this when you drink the juice as a full meal. You can also add a small apple fruit to the juice to change the taste.

The FAT BOMBER juice – Bell pepper

This is one of the juice healthy weight loss recipes that can get you going. I call it the bomber juice because it devastates the fat in the body.

Bell pepper (either green or red) contains calcium, phosphorus, iron, sodium, potassium, vitamins A and C, magnesium and copper.
The seeds of habanero and jalapeno especially, contain two active minerals, phosphorus and copper which appear together to form capsaicin.

Caspaicin is an irritant for humans and mammals. It produces a sensation of burning in any tissue with which it comes into contact.
This colorless irritant in turn triggers an escalation of the body’s fat. It begins to dissolve or break down stored fats in the muscle tissue and also stops joint pains.

Method of preparation

  • Wash bell peppers very well and cut in halves or quarters for easier juicing. One full bell pepper including seeds will yield almost half cup of juice.
  • Add a couple of slices of pimento and a dash of Tabansco sauce or 1/8 tsp of cayenne pepper to it.
  • Dilute with a half cup of carrot, tomato, or a V-8 juice if necessary. It is best taken after slight refrigeration.

When juicing other tropical fruits like papaya, passion fruit, pineapple, do add a tiny fingernail size of habanero or jalapeno to it. Do it during the juicing process.

You may add crushed ice to the juice to reduce the fierceness of the pepper. Drink each day before eating a meal. However, do not use juicing as a short cut for weight loss treatment. Make it's part of you and eat well. Do your exercises also and you surely will get the result you desire from healthy weight loss recipes treatment.


The Simple Diet remedy

You can use these healthy weight loss recipes also if you just want to an easier way to go about it. This method can also be of some help to you.

  • Depend on fresh vegetables, fruits and seeds and if possible consider whole foods.
  • Use light cooking methods like broiling, roasting, grilling and steaming for your foods.
  • Take enough proteins everyday, else you’ll feel hungry. Fish, soy products, lean poultry, yogurts, protein drinks like whey, beans, and eggs are a good source of protein.
  • Fiber foods like whole grain bread, brown rice and oats are necessary for weight loss. They keep you free of toxins.
  • You will need essential fatty acids for the proper functioning of the body system. Cold water fish, flaxseed, and cold pressed oils like olive oil are good source of fatty acids. Saute your vegetables in a table spoon of olive oil.
  • Consider foods that are high in tryptophan, such as soy milk, chicken, turkey, and live unsweetened yogurt. Tryptophan is one of the 10 essential amino acids that the body uses to synthesize the proteins it needs. This chemical encourages the production of serotonin that may restrict food cravings.
  • To quench your appetite and balance blood – sugar level, eat more small meals throughout the day.
  • Once a while add 3/5th of a hot chili sauce or ordinary yellow mustard to your food. Experiments showed that the hot stuff can cause metabolism to shoot up 25%, burning off 45 -76 extra calories in three hours.
  • Don’t skip meals. Eating at established times keeps your appetite and food selections under control.


The Kelp remedy

Thyroid hormone regulates metabolism in humans. If the thyroid is not functioning properly, it cannot maintain metabolism which is necessary for controlling weight.

Kelp contains high level of iodine which helps to activate sluggish thyroid. Kelp is a large seaweed that grows underwater.

You can eat dry kelp raw, make a soup out of it or eat it on salads. You may also use kelp powder as salt or use kelp pills as directed. You can get kelp in online stores and health food stores.


Weight loss foods to avoid

Limit or eliminate refined form of sugar from your diet. Sugar is high in calories, and causes blood sugar crashes and mood swings. Restrict sweets from your meals.

Beware of “no low-fat” sweets. They contain more sugar to makeup for the missing richness. Avoid junk foods and processed foods. Their toxins are highly addictive.

Refined flours like white bread, white bread, pasta and white rice are stripped of most of their nutrients. You will do well if you restrict them.
