    Can juicing help you lose fat?

    I know people may waiver on this but sbout a week ago I watch a documentary on a guy who started a juicing fast for 60 days. He was a big fella and he lost a lot of weight. Not only that but his body was basically purified, because of the introduction of the natural vitamins concentrated in the juice. I went Robeks and took a wheat grass shot, it was great! Do any of you guys believe juicing works? Note: the guy in the documentary did not workout either he just consecutively drunk the juice, about 8oz of the same mix which contained all the veggies and fruit humans need per serving.

    No I mean pure juicing like taking a whole veggie or fruit and juicing it. No sugar added, just the veggie or fruit becomes micronutrients.

    If by 'juicing' you mean drinking nothing but vegetable/fruit juice for 60 days, yes, but not because you're drinking juice, but because you're simply taking in less calories (unless you really drink a lot of it.)

    This is true about anything, though. If you eat what you eat now, but cut out 1/4 of your intake, it'll work as well. You don't have to juice--it just looks really impressive and easy on TV.

    Anything that will help YOU to consume less calories than you burn will help you lose fat.
    "Can't" is a word that weak, lazy and ignorant people use to justify their being so.

I do juice on occasion for vitamins but I always get a headache after I drink it. I think your best bet is to find out what YOU can do in YOUR lifestyle. Make changes that you can sustain....I read in your other post that your going away to college in August....good luck by the way....just try to control your diet with foods you like (paying attention to Macros and cals) and lift some weights.

    That documentary was Fat, Sick and nearly Dead. To me, in order to do something like that you would either have to have major and ultimate discipline to not eat anything, or you would need to remove yourself from society to not be tempted. I have a friend who juices at night. She is also a veg. To me, it's also not an easy or convenient. If you notice in the documentary, he kept all of that stuff in his trunk. The other thing is, his job seemed to keep him moving throughout the day (walking around talking to people) -- i wonder how well that would work on someone who worked a desk job.

    All in all, i think juicing is beneficial to people who may be incapable of eating throughout the day. All in all, i think if you are able to eat the equivalent it would be better than juicing as an absolute. However, people need to find what works for them -- if this concept works for them -- great. But i would say for 99% of people who work and live in the real world -- it would not be doable.

    To me, if you are going this route, i would try smoothies as that will give you fiber as well.

    Oh it will definitively work, but unless you are not concerned about the way your appearance will end up then it is a terrible idea.

    Juicing is a great idea if done in addition to adequate macros on a good diet, especially if you have trouble getting lots of fruits and veggies any other way.

    It's the fasting bit that's ridiculous and completely awful for anyone concerned with strength and muscle mass.

    Weight loss is very simple but the media/health industry loves to make it complex to keep you buying garbage.

    - Calories in vs calories out will determine if you lose weight or not
    - Macro Nutrient Content will detirmine how much of that weight is fat vs muscle
    - Micro nutrient content will detirmine over all health (vitamins/minerals/phosophonutrients)
    - Satiety will be determined by fiber content, volume/calorie and macro nutrient composition

    When you look at it in these terms juicing has some benefits and drawbacks. Its an easy way to get a lot of good micro nutrtion/fiber with very few calories if you are juicing veggies. However, there are no fats or proteins in most veggies so your body composition will suffer from losing muscle. If you are interested in juicing it should be in addition to a solid IIFYM diet. (read the stickies at the top of the form) Also, if it were me I wouldn't get a juicer I would look into one of the new super powerful blenders. They are far more versatile and you don't throw away half of the food.
