Losing weight juice fasting

Common Questions and Answers about Losing weight juice fasting


Avatar n tn Also, I should add, as this is the weight loss community, fasting is a terrible way to lose weight. When you go back to eating, if you haven't changed your diet permanently to one that works better for you you'll just go right back to where you started. There are a lot of good reasons to fast, but losing weight isn't one of them.
Avatar f tn I have tried juice fasting to eliminate chronic pains, to lose weight. It works well for me.
Avatar f tn Anyway, just wondering if anyone here has ever done any juice fasting and what your experience was like. Researching online suggested that there are even "liver cleansing" vegetables; beets, watercress... . *Disclaimer* don't undertake fasting without doctors approval as it isn't appropriate in many medical cases.
Avatar m tn and weigh 250 lbs so the county hospital doctor where i recieve my care wants me to lose 30 something lbs and so far i have gained weight. sooo..... i would like to go on a juice fast. 30 years or so in the past i used to do these with excellent results but back then i wasnt taking prevacid.if i go on this fast after a few days the body's organs shut down and go into detox or cleansing mode for lack of a medical term on my part if i'm not mistaken.
6710217 tn?1386110892 Some people use it as a form of losing weight, also, sometimes they pick a day or two out of the week to fast or not eat for that whole day.
Avatar f tn Intermittent fasting can be done for weight loss and it does work. Many who do the fasting pick a "window" throughout the day (say from 11:00 am - 3:00 pm) and that's when they do their eating. Check out Dr Mercola; he's a great fan of intermittent fasting and has several articles on how to do it safely.
Avatar f tn Here is the answer to this question. In order to lose weight, you have to subtract calories. Safe weight loss is 1-2 lbs/week, so in order to lose 1 lb/week, you'd have to drop 500 calories from your BMR each day (1 lb is equal to 3500 calories, so 500 calories X 7 days = 3500 calories or 1 lb). OR you can drop 250 calories from your diet and increase .....
Avatar f tn ve been steadily losing weight over the past few days even though I eat at least 3 meals a day (3 normal portioned meals, or 5 small meals). When I first weighed myself when I found out I was pregnant, I was about 145. Then when I went to the doctor 2 weeks ago I was 140, now I'm 137. Anyone else going through weird things like this? Oh and keep in mind I'm constipated, so I feel like I should weigh more?
Avatar n tn First, if you're at all muscular, you're not all that overweight. If you're not muscular, you don't need to lose a ton of weight. Calories aren't key to losing weight -- how quickly and efficiently you metabolize your food into sugar and how well you digest your nutrients is far more important.
Avatar n tn Hi there, Hope you are doing well. A good dietary regime and exercises all will be helpful in losing weight. Losing weight in a healthy way is important for maintaining the glow of your skin. Eat lots of fruits, dark green leafy vegetables, fruits and consume less of potato, sweetened and processed foods. Start your day by drinking lemon juice in warm water. Have fruits with lots of vitamin C in breakfast that will help you cut fats as vitamin C is a fat burner.
Avatar m tn provided that i stick to a lower diet and exercises when can i expect to see some changes in my weight? is the change in my blood pressure normal or should i be concerned?
9438937 tn?1403776528 What do you mean by "fast"? What are you taking in? Just water? A body needs a certain amount of calories to function, and a balanced diet is best. What made you want to fast? Weight loss? If so, that's not the right way to go about it, and it definitely would explain the symptoms you're having.
Avatar n tn I started trying to lose weight then SURPRISE. so i looked up how to safely lose weight and it said to know how much you need to gain... My question is how can you tell how much weight you are gaining if you are loosing weight?
Avatar f tn But in a few years - I may try all of these. My weight seems to have leveled off. Not losing any more weight, I uped my carb intake, was practically eating no carbs. I will wait to see what my nex A1c is ... Thaks so much for your input ... I have never heard of LADA type diabetes.
Avatar n tn Hi, maybe you are losing weight because of the metformin (it is a known side effect which is beneficial for many). You may also be losing weight because you are eating less calories. Do you want to lose weight? If you do, continue what you are doing. If you don't want to lose weight, you will need to eat more calories. These should be from more healthy fats (full fat dairy, butter, cream, olive oil, avocado etc), or by adding more protein (meats, eggs, nuts, etc). Hope this hlps.
Avatar f tn Fasting is tricky. Intermittent fasting originally meant, for example, not eating one day a week or one day a month. But remember, when your stomach is empty, make sure you don't have certain digestive problems, and make sure you don't get them. An empty stomach is a wonderful place for digestive juices to digest the wrong things, such as your stomach lining. It can lead to reflux. All these fads come with possible benefits and possible drawbacks.
Avatar m tn i almost never go above 110 now even after pizza or spaghetti or other heavy meal. this after losing some weight doing more exercise and eating less carb for 4 months. my fasting in morning is now 80-90 range most times < 85.
Avatar f tn This cleanse is meant to be used as a juice fast and laxative-based colon detox. You want to use it differently. I have no idea if this works if you do it the way they suggest, though I can almost guarantee the cleanse has nothing to do with weight loss -- if you stop eating of course you'll lose weight. When you start eating again, unless you change your diet, you'll gain the weight back. Using laxatives can be helpful in a short-term fast, but they can also be tricky.
