Is Juice Really Helpful For Weight Loss?

Introduction And Background
Weight loss, the thing the world is discussing more than nuclear wars probably. And why shouldn’t they? Weight gain causes so many problems that it just might become even more dangerous than weapons. If you have gained a lot of weight, you do not only have to face numerous health problems but there will also be trouble in your mental health as well. You will automatically shy away from public and will have the lowest self-confidence and low self-esteem. There are very few people who are able to escape the cycle of weight loss problems and they are the lucky ones! To lose weight though, there are some misconceptions you should not fall for. If you do, it might be that you are thinking that you are working hard but something in your diet is effectively ruining it. Read on further to find out about one of them.

Juice Helpful For Weight Loss Or Not?
Not really. Juice is not helpful for weight loss and although many people think they are doing themselves a favor by drinking juice, they really are not. It is a healthy drink, no doubt about that. And it is definitely better than anything else that you’ll be drinking such as sodas or milkshakes. However, juices are not good for weight loss, even if they are for your health.

Why Are Juices Not Helpful For Weight Loss?
Juices are not helpful for weight loss because:

  • They have a lot of carbohydrates in them, the content of sugar is too high. Imagine this, you have an orange and your stomach is full and has all the calories. Having a single orange is alright but having four or five of them in a glass! It takes quite a lot of fruits to have a single glass of juice and all the sugars are not eradicated in the process, they are present in the juice! So even if the drink is healthy, it has too many calories in it and most of them are from carbs, the thing you avoid most in a diet!
  • Weight loss requires fiber in it to help which is lost when juices are made. Whether it is fruit juice or vegetable juice, the fiber is often not present in them because the entire process removes it. There is very little fiber present in apple juice but there is a large amount of fiber in a single apple. You are rather taking a healthy thing and turning it into an unhealthy one for you if you are on a diet, turning fruits and vegetables into juices to have, fruits more so than vegetables.
  • Since they are in liquid form, they are not entirely appetizing and are easily digested from the stomach which means that you will feel hungrier sooner than later. Juices will not be very helpful in suppressing the appetite and even as a light snack they might be refreshing but they will not wash away your hunger.

Drink Water
If you are looking for a refreshing drink, drink water. There is no other choice better than water. Not only will water be refreshing and will fill up your stomach, it is also good for washing out the toxins of your body and water does not even give you any calories! You really are not availing this drink properly if you are losing weight. Think up the benefits of water or research them and you will see water in an entirely new light after that!

Is There Any Juice Which Is Helpful For Weight Loss?
There really aren’t but if you want to have juice, having one made from green leafy vegetables is often helpful. It is healthy and does not contain many calories but it is preferable that you eat those green leafy vegetables anyway rather than making a juice out of them because truth be told, you need the fiber. It is not that easy to diet and fiber helps to suppress the appetite and generally have a hold over your body because it fills you up and you feel less hungry after having it. So do not make it in the juice format, eat it in the raw format! You will feel the difference in your stomach!

Conclusion
Now that you know that drinking juice does not really help, you should help others read the article and clear the misconception from their minds as well, especially if they are dieting or are trying to keep their weight in check. Having juice is healthy, don’t get that wrong. It is a very healthy drink but if you think about it solely for the purpose of losing weight, you should think again. It is not something you should be having while in a diet!
