Will Juice Plus help me lose weight?
Ah yes, the age of question ANY health and wellness product must answer. So. Will Juice Plus help me lose weight? Good news! Yes, it absolutely CAN help you lose weight! Isn’t that glorious! But there’s a catch.
Juice Plus is NOT a weight loss product. You will not be told that fat will ‘melt off’, or that your appetite will disappear. No, Juice Plus isn’t going to make those claims. Why? Mainly because those claims are always bogus, lies, or misleading. The thing about weight loss that we just plain don’t like to hear is this: It isn’t easy, It won’t come without effort, and when done incorrectly it isn’t sustainable. Trust me, I’m fluffy, I know. Here’s the thing about weight loss…
So why even bother with Juice Plus when working to lose weight then? Well, there are lots of reasons. First and foremost, everyone needs it. It’s pure fruits and veggies in a capsule, silly! Add in the fact that its safe and you can’t go wrong. But there are a few reasons in particular that those who are trying to lose some pounds should consider. So let’s hit it!
To lose weight you need to cut calories. Cutting calories leads to less overall nutrition. Depending on where you’re getting your limited calories from you run a real risk of losing out on important nutrition. With Juice Plus you’re getting the good stuff from over 30 fruits and vegetables. All the sugar and macronutrients are removed during the drying and grinding process, so lucky you gets just those precious vitamins and minerals that your body so desperately needs. Google ‘Juice Plus and bariatric surgery’ if you need more convincing. I’ve also got some recordings with doctors on the issue if you’re interested. Seriously, reach out to me, I’m not scary, I’m awkward and fluffy!
I cannot say it enough. Do NOT do anything to take the weight off that you aren’t willing to commit to for LIFE. Short time calorie reduction excluded. If you follow an extreme protocol to drop the weight super fast, chances are you’ll never learn the proper lifestyle to maintain your new size. This is how yo-yo diets are born (Again, I AM FLUFFY. I speak from the heart and past experience here.) Living a Juice Plus lifestyle puts emphasis on those healthy habits that you need for life. When you agree to Juice Plus you agree to a nearly bottomless pit of knowledge and support. No one wants you to succeed more than the Healthy Living Revolution and your Juice Plus rep.
Juice Plus Complete
The protein shakes. We, the fluffy, get POUNDED by the meal replacement shake ads on a regular basis. Literally, everyone offers them. Here’s the thing though, they aren’t magic. They reduce calories when you replace a meal of greater caloric value. So naturally, if you drink a shake or two a day at 150-300 calories a pop instead of a 500-700 calorie meal, you will lose weight. Any protein shake will do this. So what makes complete special? It’s vegan, gluten free, dairy free, and NSF certified. It’s as clean as clean can be when it comes to these mysterious powders. Plus, it’s delicious. I hide 2-3 servings of fresh, raw fruits and veggies in mine every. single. day and it is GLORIOUS. Also, having celiac disease, I appreciate the level of quality control on these things. I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve been glutened by a health product that wasn’t all that clean, had a misleading label, or wasn’t REALLY gluten free. The FDA doesn’t look into a lot of the claims on the label Y’all! That NSF certification MATTERS! Another thing? Blood sugar control. I’m a Type 1 Diabetic too guys, and TRULY low glycemic index shakes are a hard thing to find. So many of them are LOADED with sugar and do the same damage to my sugar levels as a snickers bar. Not this stuff. Want some proof? Here’s a read out from my glucose sensor after my traditional morning shake.
I lose weight every time I complete shred10. There’s one every.single.month. so I know I always have a clean slate waiting for me. Lately, my focus with shred10 isn’t weight loss however, it’s FEELING better. Which is a nice change of pace. I’ve always been so focused on my weight, and not what I can physically do, how I feel, or the way I think. The shift has been slow, but now I haven’t weighed myself in over a month! Instead, I’m training for a 5K, completing a water challenge in one group and leading a One Simple Change challenge in another. And you know what? I went to the pool today with my kids and I felt GREAT! My swimsuit fits so much better than I remember it fitting, I was able to keep up with my monsters, and I felt just plain confident. No clue if I’ve lost any weight but damn did I feel good. Shred10 build this up for me. When I physically feel good, I emotionally feel good. Plain and simple. You can learn more about shred10 here.
Jerry Springer style ‘Final Thought’ here for ya…
Juice Plus by itself, with no other changes, will not help you lose weight. But in conjunction with a reduced calorie diet, exercise, and a positive mindset… the sky is the limit. Between the Healthy Living Revolution, Healthy Starts for Families, and Shred10, anything is possible. In the meantime, you know that you’re getting the very best nutrition one can find and shoring up that healthy foundation of yours for years to come. We all NEED better nutrition. All of us. Fluffy or not. So let’s get it! Until then, here’s a giggle for you.
