1. Learn all about juice fasting for weight loss before anything else
Do some research about the diet before committing to anything. Try to understand its purpose, its benefits and how exactly it works in the body to know if this is something you’re ready for – physically and mentally. Don’t start a diet unless you intend to stick to it until the very end.
2. List all the reasons you have for going through a juice fast
Before you begin with the diet, take the time to sit down and make a list of your personal reasons for wanting to do a juice fast. When you find yourself wanting to stop in the middle of your diet, bring the list out to remind yourself of why you made the commitment in the first place.
3. Look for inspiration
One effective way to do this is to read blogs of people who have achieved their weight loss goals through juicing. Reading success stories of other people experienced what you’re going through right now will be of great help.
4. Stay positive
Surround yourself with people who are there to support your goals such as family and friends. Being in a positive environment will help you reach your goals easier.
5. Plan your “meals” ahead
Make sure you have a meal plan ready for each day of your juice fast. Following a meal plan, knowing what to juice and when to drink the juice will help you focus on your weight loss goals.
6. Listen to your body
While on a juice fast, your body is going through cleansing and detoxification which may cause your energy levels to drop at times. When you feel tired, rest or sleep. When you feel hungry, drink juice or water. Learning to listen to your body’s needs will help you feel more at ease while juice fasting.
7. Do fun and relaxing activities
Doing things that help you relax will increase your weight loss motivation and will help take your mind off of cravings. Creating art, learning a new hobby, reading a good book or watching your favorite movie are some of the things you can try.
8. Be creative with your juices
One reason why some people stop at the middle of a fast is because they get bored with the taste of juice. This doesn’t have to be the case for you – juice different types of fruits and vegetables so that you also consume different tastes. Be creative with your combinations!
9. Think of your health
If you’re juicing for weight loss and find yourself about to fall off the wagon, think about your health. If you stop now, you won’t only lose a chance in weight loss, but you are also losing a great chance to become healthier.
10. Picture the benefits you’ll get after the juice fast
One of the best ways to feel motivated about something is to think about the rewards. Remember, the harder the challenge, the better the rewards at the end of the line.
Follow these simple tips while juicing for weight loss and you’ll surely complete your fast with flying colors.
