Juicing Recipes For Fasting

Juicy Jamboree – 4 Quickie Health Boosting Juice Recipes!

      Juicing recipes for fasting can give you a big boost in weight loss. When it comes to making your own fruit or vegetable juice at home, it goes without saying that in order to maximize the nutritional value of the drink it really is important to ensure that only the freshest ingredients are used and I would recommend organic if you have the choice. You should only make juice that you are going to use straight away as leaving it stored in a fridge for instance for any length of time will degrade the juice and it will not provide you with the same level of goodness or nutrients. If you are in the lucky position of being able to grow your own produce with which to make your juice then that really is the best possible option however, most people are not able to do this and therefore have to rely on buying their fruit and vegetables from a shop. In this case you should always do your best to avoid damaged or overripe produce.   If you live in a place where it is difficult to get hold of fresh fruit and vegetables try to locate a health food shop which carries an organic, unsweetened ready made juice. The juices I have included below will require the use of a juicer or a blender. As I am sure you are probably aware, the difference between these two items, is one removes the juice from the fruit/vegetable leaving behind the solid bits while the other liquidizes the whole lot. This being the case, if you are going to use the blender, depending on the fruit/vegetable you are using, you may need to peel and de-seed etc. If you do not have a juicer you can get round this by adding a glass of water then blending the ingredients together, after which you can pour the juice through a piece of muslin or a sieve to remove the solids. Juice is usually nicer when served cold so it is a good idea to pour it into a glass which has had crushed ice added to it.   With vegetable juice it is always nice to add a bit of salt and pepper for a little extra zing. I have included four juicing recipes, two fruit and two vegetable, for you to consider. They are all really quite simple and easy to make so I hope you will enjoy trying them out. My first recipe is for mango juice, this is my favorite as I was born and grew up in the West Indies and mangoes were almost part of my daily diet. This juice always brings back wonderful memories of sun, sea and sand and a carefree childhood spent mostly on the beach.   Mango Juice Frappe 2 Medium sized mangoes 2Tbs of orange blossom water Ice cubes made with chamomile tea Remove the skin with a knife and then cut the flesh away from the seed/stone of the mango. Blend together the mango flesh, the orange blossom water and the ice cubes until the ice is thoroughly crushed then serve.   Pineapple Panacea 50ml Pineapple Juice 100ml Soya Milk 1Tsp Grated Coconut Sweetener/Sugar to taste Blend the pineapple, soya and coconut together once well blended add the sweetener, pour into glass containing ice and serve.   The Triple C Blast Off 1/2 Red or White Cabbage 4 Roughly Chopped Carrots 5 Roughly Chopped Celery Sticks 1/2 Red Onion Water Season with Salt and Pepper 1Tsp Lemon Juice Juice the vegetables then add a little water to reduce the consistency; add salt, pepper and lemon juice. Serve this one Hot or Cold to suit the mood.   Lettuce Heart with Cucumber Combo 2 Medium Sized Cucumbers 1 Lettuce Heart Juice the ingredients together then serve. Note: In regard to the above recipes; due to it being hard to guess the amount of juice individual fruits will provide; you may have to adjust the number of fruit/vegetables in the recipes above, depending on their liquid content. Riper fruit often yield more juice but are not always as nutrient rich as their younger counterparts.   To conclude, I would like to remind readers that juicing is an excellent way of ensuring that we get our recommended daily portions of fruit and vegetables. Especially, for those of you, who, like me, do not really enjoy eating vegetables. It seems that by turning them into juice makes them much more attractive as well as easier to consume.

Burn Fat With Exercise

Cardio, Resistance and the Four Letter F Word

  When you burn fat with exercise it is important that you exercise smart and sometimes hard. Don’t worry I will explain what I mean by hard. You need to mix things up to truly get a good fat burning exercise. Of course we know about cardio , but their are 2 other methods you should be doing to burn fat. First off cardio is a great way to burn fat, but you should be mixing it up. I used to have a trainer and one thing she would always tell me to do was switch up cardio routines. The reason being you will get burnt out if all you do is run the treadmill.   So sometimes I would jump on the elliptical and other times I would do the boat row. This is a way of working out smart not hard, but with cardio comes resistance training. When you want to burn fat with exercise you need to do resistance training, that’s right resistance training. This is very important when it comes to burning fat. If all you do is cardio then your are going to have to work twice as hard on the treadmill.   Resistance training will boost your metabolism and burn fat in the process. When you do a good Resistance training and cardio workout you will burn twice as much fat than you would with cardio alone. Okay, I said I would explain hard. Alright the four letter f word when your trying to burn fat, you ready for it, here it goes FOOD! The hard part when it comes to burning fat is eating right. Diet is a big reason why people stop working out or never start. I remember the day of my first training session I went to Mikey D’s and stuffed my face like it was the last burger i was ever going to eat, man did i regret that. If I can give you one piece of advise, once you start working out, the eating part will get easier.  

Even With a Healthy Way to Lose Weight, You Still Need to Know These Principles

  It seems that with the coming of a new year, everybody is looking for a healthy way to lose weight. This trend typically lasts a month or two before the old habits are slipped back into and those initial gains are forgotten as more interesting things begin to happen as the warmer weather returns to the northern hemisphere. Why does this happen every year without fail?   Are most people inherently lazy or is there an underlying reason that makes this process so difficult? While you certainly have the greatest of intentions, it seems that with a diet, it is too easy to give up after some progress is made in the first part and not so much thereafter. The lack of concrete results causes many a candidate to just quit because there isn’t a tangible loss staring him/her in the face. However, you have to look at the big picture here and that is a slow, steady drop in that excess flab that will result in a permanent reshaping of the body. Even with a healthy way to lose weight, you are disappointed if there aren’t significant results each and every week. But this isn’t how you got into this shape to begin with is it? Or did that waistline just significant expand from one day to the next? No, it is the gradual, long term approach that will serve you the best here. The body is “fooled” into thinking that there is no change here and that will result in it not trying to equilibrate itself by gaining back the small amount of fat that you lost. best diet

Fast Fat Reduction – Does it Work?

  Are you fat and want to do something about it? There has been a lot of misinformation written about fast fat reduction and other such diets to guarantee you weight loss, most of which are scams or written by people who just don’t have a clue, so I feel compelled to tell you some real facts that will enable you to reduce weight in a healthy way.   The secret about and fast fat reduction diets is that you have to change your metabolism and be aware of your number one enemy which is then actually realize what sugar is and what it does to your body. I learnt this for myself because I was fat, lost the love of my life and actually did something to change my life. Hopefully if your in the position I was you can do something about it without losing the love of your life. Let’s deal with sugar; and I am not talking about being a grotesque cheating cup cake eater here.   Did you know what you might think is healthy like wheat grain bread, cereals and even orange juice is very unhealthy for you? Your body turns them into your number one enemy, sugar; which you want to avoid at all costs. However, as I know these from personal experience there is a diet out there that will allow you to eat lots of great foods; for example, if you love bread you can have a rice based bread that actually tastes great. If you don’t want to take my word for it why not ask Fred Flinstone about fast fat reduction.   Cavemen only ate what they could kill or find in the wild. By no means am I suggesting you begin to kill and hunt for your own food (we do have grocery stores now a days, thank goodness) but we still would benefit greatly by following this method in our own 21st century kind of way. If the food on your plate is not something your fellow caveman friend could have hunted, gathered and found himself, chances are you shouldn’t be eating that food. For example, a plate of lean hamburger and vegetables, followed by fresh fruit is perfect (for you and your new friend) but add a piece of bread or some pasta, and now you have confused your fellow cave friend. These are not foods that existed during those times and are foods we are much healthier without. So are you getting a picture of what type of foods will give you long lasting fast fat reduction.   Now you know this you only now have to find that perfect fast fat reduction diet but where will you find it? Well if you want to get a fast fat reduction diet that works why not visit some of my books for tons more weight loss tips.

Speed Up Your Results

  Being able to lose weight in one week is absolutely possible. If your desire is to lose weight and tone up then you can achieve it. So many times I have seen people complain about their weight and declare to everyone that would listen their desire to trim down and lose weight. They tell you about how unhappy they are because of their size and how their fitness has decreased. I honestly use to feel sorry for these people as you could see they were struggling. But I discovered the ones that always talk about it never really take any action. The complainers were still drinking high sugar drinks, eating fast food and sitting on the couch watching television. They took no steps to achieve their weight loss goals yet they still complained. It appeared as if they wanted someone else to do it for them.     Well, I hate to bust their bubble but it doesn’t work like that. If you want to achieve weight loss or anything else in life for that matter, it takes work and effort. If you don’t want to put in the effort then you will not get what you want. It is that simple. Losing weight to reclaim your health is not rocket science. It entails 3 little steps. Eat well and eat often. When I use the word well I do not mean an enormous amount. Eat small meals frequently (5 to 6 times a day).   Choose to put healthy food into your body. If you eat foods high in fat you will be fat. If you choose to eat natural foods such as lean protein and fruit and vegetables you will lose weight. Move. Get your body moving. Go to the gym, take a walk or join a dance class. Without some type of physical activity you will not achieve your dreams. Hold yourself accountable. The only person that is responsible for your body is you.

Best Exercises For Me For Abs

weight training for dummies   The best exercises for you for abs are ones that will both burn fat and build muscle. This is because most of us have a few extra pounds around the midsection that will prevent the ab muscles from being seen even after they have been built up. You see, you can’t spot reduce fat around the belly so exercises like sit ups only serve to build the abdominal muscles. However, they just don’t burn enough calories to make a difference when it comes to losing weight. For losing weight most people resort to exercises like running or doing the Stairmaster to burn fat. This is alright, however to burn a single pound of fat you must expend 3,500 calories and even if you spend an hour on the Stairmaster you will only lose about 500. These are the exercises that most people do to work and show their abs and burn fat. However, you still can’t see them on most people.   The trick is to turn your body into a fat burning furnace by raising the metabolism while doing exercises that work your core. These would be exercises like the clean and jerk, the standing military press, dumb bell swings, renegade rows, dead lifts and others. Even though these exercises may not seem like they are working your abs, they have a number of benefits above other ab exercises, When you build muscle, you burn fat.   Fat weighs more than muscle and is heavier for the body to carry which effectively increases your body’s fat burning ability. Because these exercises work multiple muscle groups they cause you to exert so much force that you actually go into a state of metabolic shock and burn more calories days after the workout. And, finally, they build muscle in your abs because your abs serve to stabilize your body during these exercises. Don’t believe me? Try some renegade rows and you will.

What is going on in the world?

  Well certainly the western world anyway, I mean there are more diets and weight loss plans than anyone could get through in a lifetime, there are more ‘low fat’ foods and choices than ever before in history and yet the number of overweight people just keeps on increasing. Why is that do you think? Could it be that dieting actually makes us fatter? That is the opinion of many professionals in the weight loss industry and it would seem to have some basis of truth. For instance take any well known diet plan, South Beach Diet, Jenny Craig, Tony Ferguson Weight Loss, Weight Watchers or any of the low fat, low carb or low calorie diets that exist. All of these plans can show you someone who has had great success using their plans, however what you will find that somewhere in the small print it will say that ‘results not typical’.

Which Diet Plans Work – How to Prepare For Successful Weight Loss

workout

Well, the ones that are easy to stick with; of course. Diet plans that are too restrictive don’t work because they leave us feeling hungry or deprived most of the time. It takes incredible will power to follow a restrictive diet. Years ago, even doctors did not really understand the “mechanics” of weight loss. The best “diet advice” that anybody could offer was to “eat less and move more”. Truly, that is still good advice today; as any effective weight loss plan must create a situation wherein we burn more calories than we consume; but the difference between then and now is that today; we understand how the body responds to dieting. Today, in determining which diet plans work, we know that highly restrictive diets that greatly reduce calorie consumption will result in a “metabolic slow down”; with the metabolism being the furnace within us that burns calories.   A restrictive diet is good but most people can’t keep up with the restrictions for very long without going back to their same old ways. Face it  as humans we are creatures of habit. In time most of us will go back to what is normal, comfortable and easiest for us. There are some true warriors out there but they are few that will stick with the program long term and see all the fruit of their labor. We live in a society where we often get what we want from day to day. So if we choose to be fat and lazy we can get it easily, but it is certainly not a healthy or desirable way to live life. People want to get in shape around the first part of each year and right before vacation. Let’s face it, weight loss does not just happen overnight. We have to work at it little by little just like anything else we want to become a reality for us. Think of weight loss and diet as a lifestyle choice because that’s exactly what it is. You can eat unhealthy and not exercise, but you can also choose to do the exact opposite of that and live a longer healthier life. It comes down to choice.   female sport We are programmed to maintain; not to lose; and when we reduce our calorie intake in an effort to lose weight; our bodies respond by slowing our metabolic rate, in order to conserve weight! So, which diet plans work? Those plans that are built around the scientific facts about how the body responds to dieting are the ones that truly work. Fortunately, these same plans offer certain advantages that make them easier to follow: They require you to eat often, which means that you never feel “deprived”. You must eat a balanced diet, partaking in proper measure of all of the food groups. You are not denied foods that you particularly enjoy; you simply fit them into the plan.     There are allowances for those situations wherein you have to “grab a meal on the go”. They allow you some “off days” wherein you enjoy zero dietary restrictions without negative impact on your over all progress. I would like for you to see one of the most effective and most popular weight control programs available today; I have used it with great success; and I know that you can too.   I have spent much time researching which diet plans work, and why they work, and this one seems to work well across a broad segment of society, in the U.S. and abroad. I encourage you to follow a diet plan that is fairly lenient but allows you to actually enjoy some of the foods that you eat regularly and can incorporated into your normal daily diet. Being too restrictive will cause you to fail at your weight loss goal. You don’t want to be eating donuts, chocolate, calorie packed foods that will make you fat. However, at the same time you want to make sure that you’re eating food in a similar eating pattern you normally would eat, but with a slight twist that is geared more towards a healthier diet plan.   Food substitution would be your best bet. Substitute fatty or unhealthy foods with similar foods that does not have all that excess calories and fat in it. Gradually start substituting your own food choices and replacing them with healthier choices. For example, instead of eating french fries go with baked potato with low fat butter and sour cream, and skip the cheese; or it could be brown rice over buttery mashed potatoes,  or baked chicken instead of fried chicken. And the list goes on and on. These small daily food choices can add up to big results in a very short amount of time. The main thing here is consistency, by consistently eating right it will add up to be something big in the end. You just have to keep at it and keep making smarter choices when it comes to your diet. It will become a way of life for you and think of all the benefits of being trim. Without your health nothing else in life matter. Your health is your greatest asset.     Don’t forget to hit the gym at least 3 times a week this can also become a lifetime choice with some really terrific health benefits. resistance trainingIf you’re not a gym person, if you’re intimidated by the gym or the people in the gym, or whether you are just too lazy to go or whatever your reason is. Also remember that you can build a gym at your home too. It may not be at gym like the one at your workout facility, but it’s better than nothing; and working out no matter where it is at will bring your health benefits just the same. It doesn’t cost an arm and a leg to put together some workout equipment and get your sweat on. You just need some free weights, a piece of workout equipment and a little bit of room somewhere in your house or apartment and you are ready to start improving your health one day at a time. Free weight can do wonders for your body, only if you knew and it does not have to be heavy weights either.
