Juice Diets And How They Impact You

Hub JuiceCleanse Social 1200x628

There are many types of juice diets. The most common type is a juice fast, in which people take fruit or vegetable juice in place of the main meal.

The point is to lower weight by skipping solid food while still ingesting a significant amount of nutrients from the juice.

Commonly these diets have low calories. Some people follow only juice fasts for some days, while others go on them for weeks at a time.

Unfortunately, the effectiveness of the juice diet is not well researched, but different people claim they offer quick weight loss.

 

Juice Diets May Seriously Lower Calorie Intake

For weight loss, you must control a calorie deficit, which means you eat fewer calories than you burn. Different juice diets lack solid food and are very low in calories. This results in a high-calorie deficit for different people, so a juice diet leads to weight loss, at least in short term. However, once your calorie consumption goes back to normal after the diet, you will likely regain some weight.

 

Juice Diets Aren’t Filling

hunger pangs 1519677811

As the juice does not have solid foods, you might feel hungry during the diet regimen. It is because liquid meals, particularly those that have high carbs are less filling than solid foods. Solid foods are more filling because they consist of protein and fiber, which are both necessary nutrients that contain appetite-lowering properties.

Fiber can lower appetite because it may lower down the emptying of the stomach and raise digestion time.

Meanwhile, protein boosts the levels of the hormone that signals fullness and is necessary for appetite regulation.

 

Juice Diets Impact Your Metabolism

The severe calorie deficit that different juice diets cause a destructive effect on metabolism.

These diets are featured by rapid weight loss and lower protein intake, which may cause low muscle mass.

Muscles are metabolically active, so individuals with a reduced muscle mass get a lower resting energy expenditure. It means they burn more calories at rest than those with more muscle.

Additionally, your body senses starvation when you lower your calorie intake, so your body acts to preserve calories by burning some of them.

Controlled research has confirmed this effect in individuals who follow calorie-restricted diets.

According, females with obese or overweight who underwent a calorie restriction treatment for 3 months feel a significant reduction in resting energy expenditure during that time.

While a calorie deficit is necessary for weight loss, it happens that low-calorie diets, adding juice fasts, may be ineffective because of their negative effects on metabolism.

 

Potential Health Risks Of Juicing

Juicing is commonly safe if you do it for only some days at a time. Additionally, fresh fruit and vegetable juice are a good addition to a healthy diet as long as you fully enjoy them and you do not consume the extra amount of juice included in sugar. However, juice fasts do carry some risks when they long term.

 

Insufficient Fiber

Whole vegetables and fruits are good sources of fiber, but most of the fiber is eliminated in the juicing process.

Fiber is an important part of a healthy diet. Eating sufficient of it is necessary for best digestion because it keeps the good bacteria in gut health and may lower the constipation of some people.

Additionally, it may reduce the risk of heart disease, obesity, and diabetes.

 

Nutrient Deficiencies

There are some reasons why following juice fasts for a long time may cause nutrient deficiencies. Since these diets do not have animal products, they are low in some essential nutrients like vitamin D, vitamin B12, iron, and zinc. All these nutrients get necessary functions in the body. Insufficient consumption may cause health problems like osteoporosis and anemia.

Juice fasts are also had low omega-3 fatty acids, which are healthy fats that fight against inflammation and lead to heart and brain health.

Additionally, being low in particular nutrients, these dies may affect the absorption of the nutrients. One reason for this is that juice diets have low fat, which is needed for the absorption of the fat-soluble vitamin D, A, E, and K.

Additionally, sow raw vegetables often utilized in juicing consist of an antinutrient called oxalate, which can bind to minerals in the body and stop them from being absorbed. High levels of oxalates cause kidney damage. Oxalate-rich vegetables are generally used in juicing such as beet, kale, spinach, swiss chard, and turnip greens.

 

Improved Risk Of Infection

Because of low protein and enough amount of some essential nutrients in the juice, following one for a long time can affect your immune system and raise the risk of infection.

Lack of immune system improvement like vitamin D, iron, zinc, may affect the immune system. When your immune system is compromised, you may get illnesses such as colds and flu more easily. It may also take more time for your body to heal the wounds.

 

Fatigue And Weakness

Weakness and fatigue are common side effects of following a juice fast. These symptoms are prone to happen because of the low calories these diets have. If you are depriving your body of calories, you are importantly depriving it of energy, which can cause this undesirable effect.

 

Lower Lean Muscle Mass

The minimal amount of protein in most juice fasts may cause a reduction in lean muscle mass, which can hurt health. As your lean muscle mass lower, your metabolism lower, and burning fewer calories lead to difficulty in maintaining weight loss.
