Juice dieting is basically consuming squeezed juice from fresh fruits and vegetables to replace or limit food intake. Juice diets are temporary types of diets that are considered to jumpstart weight loss approaches. It is perceived that juicing is more beneficial than eating whole fruits and vegetables because the body can absorb nutrients from liquid more easily than solids and can therefore boost nutritional intake. Juicing makes it a lot easier to consume larger quantities and more varieties of fruits and vegetables to boost energy levels and revitalize the body.
Juice dieting can reduce consumption of carbohydrates and increase intake of several vitamins including potassium. This might not only improve health but reduce the likelihood of weight gain.
Some studies have shown that antioxidants have different suggested health effects and benefits. Antioxidants also known as phytochemicals which are a variety of natural substances produced by plants, can help prevent damages by free radicals to the human body. There are several thousands different types of fruits, nuts, grains and vegetables containing antioxidants and the prime benefit of juicing is that it is an easier approach to consume more of the different foods that are rich in antioxidants, hence providing better health benefits.
Juices, however nutritious, cannot work as substitutes for meals given the lack of other essential nutrients such as protein, carbohydrate, fiber etc. which are important for natural growth and healthy lifestyles. Juicing completely eradicates the fiber content in fruits and vegetables, essential in healthy diets, and its deficiency may lead to digestive health problems. It is therefore important that juices be pureed with some of the pulp to not only provide the necessary healthy fiber, but to suppress hunger and improve digestion.
