If you’re new to juicing or an old hand, either way, juicing can be a great way to boost your vitamin and mineral intake naturally, detox and give yourself more energy and radiance.
Juicing is wonderful for health because you are removing the hard, fibrous ingredients of the vegetables and fruits and simply delivering liquid nutrients to your body.
But don’t be fooled, not all juices are the same as the one next to them.
Just because something is classified, as ‘juice’ doesn’t automatically make it healthy for you.
For instance, large quantities of fruit juice are bad for you!
Yep, that’s right, even if it’s fresh from home or you bought it out at a trendy juice bar.
Fruit is packed full of nutrients, no doubts there, but also packed full of sugars in the form of fructose. Fructose is in fact one of the easiest sugars to stack weight on with, even over table sugar. Plus, what’s worse is fructose isn’t controlled by the same biology as glucose, which means if you don’t burn up the fructose instantly, it turns to fat!! Yikes!
So when consuming fruit and trying to lose weight, a good rule of thumb is one piece every day or so for most adults, including in juice form.
Vegetables and vegetable juice on the other hand is another entity altogether, and is brilliant for your health and for getting bikini body ready!!
Have one of these combinations every morning before breakfast to feel and look amazing.
