What should a great juicing recipe to fight fat include? Here is a list of ingredients and how they help you burn off unwanted body fat. I’ll also provide a few juicing recipes for weight loss that incorporate these ingredients. Let’s focus on a few common ingredients in healthy juicing recipes and how they help!
Apples have pectin, a water soluble fiber and are packed with antioxidants. Juicing apples or eating them raw can decrease the amount of visceral fat (fat around your stomach and organs). The high fiber content from the apple also keeps you feeling full longer, which will help you curb your cravings and hopefully tone your belly.
Celery is often referred to as a “negative-calorie food”. This means that it takes more calories for your body to digest the food itself contains. Celery is great for vegetable juicing recipes as a base ingredient because of it’s high water volume, Vitamin and amino acids, and it adds a distinctly refreshing taste.
Like apples, kale is high in fiber, which fills you up faster. And this green leafy vegetable is low in caloric value.
Grapefruit itself doesn’t contain any fat fighting properties, but has lots of soluble fiber which can be a great aid in any dieting plans you have. Grapefruit juice ingested before a meal can help you feel full more quickly, and thus reduce the amount of fatty foods you consume during a meal.
