Feast on Juice
We have a messed up way of thinking when it comes to detoxing, losing weight and eating. When people decide to lose weight they immediately starve themselves or cut their calorie intake. Let’s take a look at the number one culprit, FASTING. When one is fasting they take in very small amounts of liquid and calories. This results in a slower metabolism, lowered energy levels, inability to concentrate and zombie-like mannerisms. Your body goes into panic mode and not only begins to eat away at your muscle, but will store any food you do decide to eat, as fat in case you decide to starve it again.
So what is the alternative? I’m glad you asked! This is termed a Juice FEAST rather than FAST because one gets all the calories one would normally get from about 4 litres of fresh juice a day. Juice Feasting works a little differently, supporting the feaster to be highly functional in daily life, and meeting all calorie needs while experiencing massive cleansing on a cellular level.
Juicing has tons of benefits, these include:
- Improved focus and mental clarity
- Improved heart and cardiovascular function
- Anti-Aging properties
- Improved bone & joint function
- Stronger Immune
- Better digestion
- Better overall mood
- Healthier hair, skin and nails
- Higher metabolism and weight loss
- Endless amounts of energy
When you juice, you use waaaaaay more fruits and vegetables than you could actually eat at one time. As a result, you are drinking a HUGE quantity of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients that would be impossible to get otherwise. Well, not impossible… but you would have to eat massive amounts of produce all day long. .. no one has that kind of time. Juicing provides you with the ability to boost your metabolism to lose weight, rejuvenate your scar tissue, cure illnesses and of course clean the shit out from your whole system. Juice requires hardly any digestion, so all its nutritional awesomeness is rapidly absorbed into your system while simultaneously giving your digestive system a rest. This gives your body a chance to use this saved energy to clean out old crap your body is holding in the lower intestine. Your skin will begin to radiate, and your body is now free to work on detoxing the liver and kidneys. We rarely give these guys the much needed love they deserve. . This is a great example of food being used as it was intended.
I have added one 500ml juice a day to my diet and the differences I have witnessed on my skin alone are incredible. I have been suffering from severe acne for over 10 years now, and nothing has ever helped. Now my skin glows, it is a lot smoother and I get less frequent breakouts. I am an all around happy and confident women! So do a cleanse! Or just add fresh, organic juices to your diet, you have one body , take damn good care of it!!!!
