Top 5 Foods to Juice for Weight Loss
Many people turn to juice for weight loss. It is a quick and effective way to consume very little calories but still get plenty of nutrition and hydration. If you are new to juicing and don’t know where to start I suggest you read my blog on Juicing for Weight Loss to learn more.
Here are my top 5 foods to juice for weight loss. I have chosen these 5 foods based on their nutrition, calories, and amount of juice you get per fruit or vegetable.
#1 Honeydew Melon
Honeydew melon is a dieter’s delight, extremely low in calories, produces lots of juice, has zero fat and its flavour is exceptionally pleasing to taste.
Honeydew is also high in vitamins C and B-complex and minerals such as copper and silicon. It contains highly mineralized distilled water that has the ability to deeply hydrate, rejuvenate, purify, and alkalinize the entire body.

Watermelon is known to significantly reduce inflammation, help flush out edema, aid in weight loss, and alleviate depression. Watermelon can also boost the immune system as well as strengthen vision.
If you leave the skin on when juicing it is one of the highest organic sodium foods in nature and one of the best sources of chlorophyll.

Grapefruit diets have been around many many years now and it is any wonder as they are an exceptional fruit that has very strong anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties. They are a great source of vitamin C and bioflavonoids which help to boost the immune system and prevent aging, illness, and disease.
Research shows that a grapefruits pectin fibres (still in the juice), reduces appetite which can assist with weight loss and can lower cholesterol.

One head of lettuce is extremely low in calories and fat, an excellent source of beta-carotene, vitamin A, folate, vitamin C, manganese, and chromium.
For weight loss I recommend you juice iceberg lettuce as you will extract more juice than the other leafy varieties.

Cucumber juice is highly alkalinizing and very hydrating. You get maximum juice without any calories. They contain a high quantity of silica which is the mineral responsible for strengthening the connective tissue which holds the body together including bones, tendons, ligaments, muscle, and cartilage.
Cucumber also contains erepsis, a digestive enzyme that breaks down protein and cleanses the intestines. This property makes cucumbers excellent for weight loss and also enables them to destroy any nasty worms.
