Risks Of The 60-Day Juice Diet

  • Your muscles and bones may become weak if you don’t exercise and do not take the supplements.

To avoid these, you must remember and follow these points mentioned below.

Points To Remember

  • Introduce solid foods gradually into your diet. Start by having one solid meal, and then increase it gradually to three solid meals per day.
  • Your meal should comprise of proteins (lean meat, eggs, mushrooms, lentils, beans, etc.), complex carbs (veggies, fruits, multigrain bread, etc.), healthy fats (nuts, olive oil, ghee, rice bran oil, fish oil, etc.), and dietary fiber (brown rice, fruits, etc.).
  • Avoid all processed and high-sugar foods.
  • Have a cheat day in every 10 days, but make sure to eat not more than 500 calories extra. For example, if you consume 1500 calories per day, on your cheat day, you will be allowed to eat 2000 calories.
  • Exercise regularly. You can do a mix of cardio, strength training, and weights. You can also play a sport or join dance classes.

The 60-day juice diet for weight loss involves consuming five servings of fruit and vegetable juices every day to flush out toxins that cause chronic conditions like obesity, diabetes, and hypertension. Hydrate yourself properly by drinking at least two liters of water while on this diet, and do not exercise during the first two weeks. You may also need to take fish oil and calcium supplements to counter the resultant nutrient deficiencies of the diet. On the flip side, you may gain your weight back after this 60-day diet if you fail to adopt a balanced diet. So, consult a dietitian and seek professional help to plan your diet strategy.
