Juicing for Weight Loss

I added this because dieting nutritionally is a vital component for any nutritional survivalist... "Discipline" , "Determination", "Will Power" . Watch for the Apple Cider Tonic for weight loss in a couple of days so come back daily and get a variety of new nutritional juicing recipes to maintaining and sustaining a healthy lifestyle.

Juicing for Weight Loss
Adding freshly juiced fruits and vegetables to your weight-loss plan can be a smart strategy, provided you use the juice in conjunction with other foods, and your only source of calories. When you lose weight, you can substitute lower calorie fruit and vegetable juice for higher calorie foods and beverages to help create a calorie deficit.
   Low Calories
Vegetables and fruits contain few calories per serving when compared to higher calorie foods such as granola bars, chips, desserts and even whole-grain cereals. A kiwi has 42 calories, a small banana contains 90 calories, 1 1/2 cup of romaine lettuce has 12 calories and a 5 inch stalk of celery contains 3 calories. Although healthy and necessary while dieting, whole-grain shredded cereal has about 185 calories per 24 pieces. If you eliminate 600 calories a day in higher calorie foods and consume a 100 calorie juiced beverage in their place, you gain vitamins and minerals while still having a calorie deficit of 500 calories per day.
    Increased Fruit and Vegetable Intake
While just eating juiced fruits and vegetables will not automatically cause you to lose pounds, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention indicates that there may be a correlation between fruit and vegetable consumption and weight loss. The CDC explains that both foods contain few calories, increase how full you feel and may help you stay away from higher calorie choices. You may find it difficult to eat an apple, a bunch of baby spinach, a carrot and a stalk of celery in one sitting, but may find it easy to juice the fruits and vegetables together and drink the delicious result.
    Convenience and Freshness
Juicing your own drinks enables you to choose the combinations that appeal to you, and lets you decide when you want to drink your freshly squeezed beverage. When you juice a food, you consume not only the juice, but also part of the edible leaves, some pulp and fruit solids that you may miss if you consume a commercial juice product, according to Steven Bailey, author of "Juice Alive: The Ultimate Guide to Juicing Remedies." A cup of raw carrots has 3.6 g of fiber, but a 1/2 cup of commercially available carrot juice contains less than 1 g of fiber.
Select the freshest possible produce to juice to give yourself the most nutritional value, recommends Bailey. When possible, look for organic fruits to avoid pesticides and other chemicals often found on fruits and vegetables. Combine vegetables such as beets, celery and carrots for a healthy beverage, or juice lettuce, cucumbers and carrots together for a tangy, vitamin filled drink. Drinking a sweet juice may help you avoid eating desserts or candy, both of which offer little nutrition and have high calories. Options for sweet juices include juicing pineapple, apples and lemons together, or juicing pitted peaches, apples and strawberries into a tasty drink.

“Weight Loss Juice Recipes”

Carrot: This delicious juice will help add sweetness but still let you benefit from the incredible benefits of this amazing vegetable such as digestion stimulant, liver cleanser, and high levels of beta-carotene.
Cucumber: a base of choice for most recipes since they are water dense and relatively low calorie.
Celery: Is often recommended in weight-loss programs as it is low calorie and water dense. Juice the entire celery stick including the chlorophyll rich green leaves.
Lettuce: dark-green lettuce types are nutrient dense and darker the lettuce the more alkalizing and mineral rich.
Cabbage: Powerful body-cleansing vegetable recommend often for weight loss.  I'm sure you've heard of the "cabbage diet"
Beetroot: This is great vegetable that will add sweetness to your juice.  Use sparingly.
Spinach: Rich in chlorophyll and minerals such as calcium, spinach is alkalizing and has numerous weight loss benefits.
Tomato: Helps reduce acid in body, and is beneficial for stimulating blood circulation, liver cleansing and blood purifying.
Watercress: Considered a powerful intestinal cleanser and toxin neutralizer and is good for the kidneys, bladder, blood circulation, cleansing the skin and said to stimulate fat burning.
Apple: This low glycemic fruit is known for a wide range of health benefits including supporting healthy blood-sugar levels.
Citrus Fruits: Grapefruits and Lemons in particular have gotten a lot of attention for it's role in weight loss support. 

Also note be careful on spinach intact for too much dark green can cause overdose combine as much as possible. A great starter for someone starting out: 4 carrots, 2 Celery stalks leaves and all, 1 Red Delicious Apple, and ½ inch knob of Fresh Ginger Root.
But Combine all the Vegetables above in any way and balance out with a fruit to give some additional flavor and sweetness naturally. Also note: Fresh Organic Apples juiced seeds and Cores in all is drank immediately have antiviral properties.

“The Cider Vinegar Diet”
 Apple cider vinegar helps in burning the extra fat in your body and is a very effective weight loss diet. It not only burns the excess fat but also suppresses your appetite. The pectin in the vinegar is supposed to bind the fat and remove it from the body. This weight loss diet is harmless unless consumed in larger proportions.

Firstly, Make yourself the Apple Cider Vinegar”DIET” Tonic from the recipe below.

Here is The Diet Tonic:
8 oz. Class filtered water
2 tablespoons Raw Unfiltered Organic Apple Cider Vinegar ( I use Braggs’)
   2 tablespoons Raw Wildflower honey. 
1/4 teaspoon bee  Royal Jelly this will help increase stamina and help burn fat naturally 

,  Directions for usage.
TAKE WITH EACH MEAL-that's 3 times a day. It won't work unless you take it with food. It’s designed to burn up the fat taking into the body's system with foot.
I then took the same drink with an evening snack. I did this and lost 10 pounds in the very first week. I continued to take the liquid until I lost a total of about 55-60 pounds.
Do not replace the Tonic with Apple Cider Vinegar Tablets. It is not the same as they say. Their are critical enzymes either damaged or missing altogether also You are not getting a full dose many companies Cut the ACV powder to stretch it even farther. 
Many people using this diet and follow through feel great and have results and many of which are significant. This Tonic overall is a great for anyones health. Read through the entire chapter and look at all it uses and the list goes on and on. Apple Cider Vinegar is a simple Solution that will bring “Prosperity to ones life. Don’t believe me Just go online and asks other and for over 100 years.

"What is a Neurotoxin?
A toxin is a substance produced by an organism that causes harm when introduced to another organism and usually results in the production of some neutralizing agents (i.e. antitoxins).  Neurotoxins are toxins that target the nervous system and disrupt the signaling that allows neurons to communicate effectively.  Some neurotoxins achieve this by interrupting the ion channels, while other neurotoxins inhibit the signaling molecules that propagate the action potential from one neuron to the next. 

One well-known neurotoxin that disrupts sodium channels, a very important ion channel for the production and propagation of action potentials, is tetrodotoxin.  Similar to a cork in a wine bottle, TTX stops ions from flowing through the ion channel by acting as a plug.  Without the movement of sodium across the neuronal membrane, neurons are not able to properly send signals and communication in the nervous system ceases."
