Why juicing is your secret health weapon


We’re coming up to my favourite part of the Healthy Habits Challenge – our 3-Day Juice Cleanse!

I know the idea of drinking juice for three days is a little scary for some of you, but there’s a lot more to it than that. And there are a few tips and tricks you need to know before you start to make your life easier!

The aim for this coming weekend (Saturday, Sunday, Monday) is to replace your meals with five fresh juices each day.

If you’re not convinced, here’s three good reasons why juicing is amazing for your health:

  • Reset your metabolism – kick start fat loss
  • Reduce your appetite – juicing helps to establish better portion control in the long-term and eliminates the pattern of comfort eating.
  • Clear your mind – having a break from food is not just a physical reset, it’s also a mental one. Juicing helps you feel in control and makes the process of changing habits more achievable.

 

Here’s how it works:

  • Start each day with a glass of hot water with a squeeze of lemon juice or add lemon into your first juice of the morning.
  • Use organic fruits and vegetables wherever possible.
  • Aim to have 75% vegetables and 25% fruit in each of your juices.
  • Water your juice down (about ¾ juice) with purified water and sip slowly
  • Aim to have your juices at 8am, 11am, 2pm, 5pm and 8pm (every 3 hours).
  • Make sure you drink your juice before you get hungry. You can have as much as you like.
  • Make sure your bowels keep moving through this stage. If you need some extra assistance, try 2 heaped teaspoons of Psyllium Husk in a glass of water before bed. Remember to always follow with a glass of water.
  • If you don’t feel like juice for dinner or you’re struggling having the juice for the whole day, you can make our Country Vegetable Soup  or Vegetable Soup on a Cold Night for your evening meal.

Whether you're doing our Healthy Habits challenge or not, juicing is a tool that you can use to help reset your body and mind over a few short days. If you'd like to join our Healthy Habits Challenge from September 18th - October 1st 2017, click here.
