Here is a fact for you. Each pound of fat on your body is the product of 3500 calories. If you want to lose one pound of fat you need to burn 3500 calories. While exercise is the best way to burn extra calories, your body burns calories every minute you breath because it takes energy for you to breath. Ideally you want to lose about 2 pounds a week. Think about this if you did that for a year you would be over 100 pounds lighter. Some of us might be that much over weight but most of us are an extreme case. The problem about cutting calories is you still need nutrition to lose weight. The less nutrition your body gets the less efficient your metabolism is. Your body is an efficient machine. It will try to store fat and energy if your starve yourself. The affect of this is it doesn’t do every body function properly to conserve energy. This is why I love juice an particularly my Cold Press. If you added one green juice drink into your diet every day you allow your body to work efficiently while still cutting calories. Try having a green juice which is low in calories and high in nutrition everyday for breakfast. You will be cutting out a few hundred calories and still being healthy. This is the basics of a juice diet.
Wouldn’t it be great if you could get healthy enough that you wanted to kiss the floor? The three keys to health are sleep, exercise and diet. Of course things like meditation and a healthy optimistic outlook don’t hurt. And sleep needs to be a good restful 7 hours. Exercise should be daily. They say 10,000 steps every week is better than hitting the gym 3 times. And then you have diet. 3 meals including the most important breakfast. But there is some research that shows having 4 smaller meals every day might be better. And of course diet includes getting enough vegetables and fruits everyday. If all of this sounds like a tall order. Lots of people have gone to juice cleanse or even the juice fast.
