GREEN APPLE DETOX JUICE ( actually a Smoothie so you get ALL Nutrients)
MAKES 2 SERVINGS
I can hardly have a conversation without someone asking if I’ve tried a juice diet or fast or detox,
The problem is many of these fads are really just a way to cut calories, you lose weight – mostly water and muscle – and then when you eat normally the weight – and it will be body fat – piles back on again!
I often use a fruit and veg detox to help overcome cravings for sugar, caffeine or carbs, and to offer a high nutrition alternative to processed and packaged foods.
My Smart Training system includes a pre- exercise stage using a 7 day Detox which is followed by a mix of home and small group exercise and nutrition counselling sessions.
The most important thing is that you find a way to live everyday, making the right healthy choices for you, enough exercise to maintain your body with a healthy body fat % while avoiding fatigue, stress and illness or injury.
Using fasting, juicing or cutting calories to lose weight doesn’t work long term. Just like weight watchers and Other slimming clubs have a pitifully 5% success rate. That means this idea of eating less and moving more will work for a few months and then your metabolism will win out If you’re not careful your body will react by storing more fat every time you fast.
Find a clean eating routine that will work everyday, every week, every year. Your systems will relax, you’ll drop body fat, have more energy and never have to diet again..
