Losing Weight

by Ashley

Q: Hello, I'm Ashley. I'm a new juicer! I lost 4 lbs over night and all together 7 lbs in 4 days, it seems now that the weight is not coming off. I've been doing this for 5 days. Why do you think I stopped losing?

A: Hi Ashley! I'm so glad you found juicing and are using it for your weight loss goals!

And wow, it seems to me that you've lost a good bit of weight already. 7 pounds is 4 days is great! Sometimes when we lose weight, we lose a lot at first. Then we plateau for a little, and then go back to losing weight. It can be due to a number of factors. Perhaps your body was cleansing out some water weight and fecal matter the first few days (a natural benefit of juicing!). Or it was just quickly responding to the reduction of calories. Most people do not lose weight each day they are on a diet. It takes time and persistance. Jump start more weight loss with exercise and just watching your calories (not sure if you are fasting or eating and just supplementing with juice).


Either way, I wouldn't worry to much that you didn't lose anything on day five. It's just one day! Give your body a chance to lose it. You don't want to be too agressive with weight loss, your goals should be healthy weight loss. Good luck and congrats on the pounds you lost so far!

Juicing but weight loss has stopped
by: Wally

Hello,
I started juicing (supplementing with juice three days ago). I am currently on the wheat belly diet (low carbs, no gluten or dairy except cheese, and a lot of protein). I lost over 20lbs in the first month. When I added the juice I started eating less protein (full feeling). Before juicing I was losing a pound every few days. After starting the juicing, I gained 1.2 pounds and haven't lost any in 3 days. I am attesting the gain to a chage in my metabolism? Anyone have any ideas? I feel much better jucing and am curious to see what happens with the weight.

Lack of weight loss after 3-4 days
by: Anonymous

When did you start loosing weight again and how much. My wife and I ran into the same thing. After 3-4 days we stopped loosing weight, now it is for 3 days and no weight loss. Staying religious to juicing, just started off great with 2.5-3 lbs a day and then nothing. This is a little frustrating. Any advice?

Juicing
by: jody

I've been juicing now for 7 days, lost 7 lbs, but now have been setting at the same weight for about 3 days. Not sure what I am doing wrong. Drinking the green mean 3 times a day with a fruit juice once a day, someone tell me how to move past this stall. Thank you


Hi Judy! Your body is probably just regulating itself. Hang in there and be patient!
