Have you seen the ‘Snake Juice’ guy on Youtube? Look him up. Some would find him hilarious and he does have 1000s of followers but he’s definitely an acquired taste. He introduces himself to every video and then proceeds to greet his audience with ‘Hey Fatty’.
We’re not going to do that here though. We’re much too polite. You’re likely on this page for one of two reasons though. Either you’re intention is to drop a few pounds or you’re lost. I hope you are not lost.
If your sole intention is purely to lose weight then that is a noble a highly achievable goal. It is a great start and you’ve come to the right place to find the information you need.
It will be much more productive to look at a juice fast as an introduction to a new, and healthier lifestyle.
We hope that your first experience with juicing inspires you to continue to incorporate juices as a part of your daily or weekly food intake. Yes, juice IS food – and in our opinion the best kind.
No matter how long you juice for and how much you initially lose in weight, if you go back to your old diet, then as sure as the sun rises and sets, you will put the weight back on. We’re fairly sure you already know that maybe even from your own recent experience.
What will you lose?
You can expect to lose around 1lb per day on a diet of juices only. This is a rough estimate though. No one can determine definitively how much weight you will lose as there are many factors that come into play, including your current metabolic rate, your current weight and also whether you exercise or not while on the fast.
The Juice Plan
Aim to have 4 juices per day to consist of a combination of kale, broccoli, spinach, apples, ginger, lemons, and carrots. Apples and lemons will sweeten the juice and make it much more palatable. Celery juice is all the rage at the moment and is another firm favorite. It is also very easy to prepare and packs a lot of juice.

You should also try to have some herbal tea and drink plenty of water – at least 2 liters per day. I bought myself a Brita Fill n Go Water bottle. This purifies the water. Much better than drinking tap or even bottled water. Drinking lots of water will also help alleviate your hunger pangs.
In conclusion, it’s not that difficult to complete a juice fast provided you don’t easily succumb to temptation. We wouldn’t recommend putting yourself in the way of temptation too often though. It seems that all the foods that are bad for our health seem to be those that taste so good. Sod’s law, eh?
