If you are reading this article, I suppose you want to lose weight quickly, without having to indulge in intense workouts. Fruits and vegetable juices are a tasty and healthy option to drop a few sizes. Substituting a few meals of the day with juices in your daily diet will aid in weight loss without affecting your health.

Fruit and vegetable juices have anti-inflammatory properties and are good sources of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. However, they lack proteins, carbs, fiber, and fats that our body needs to function normally. Therefore, it is not advisable to stay on an all-juice low-calorie diet as crash dieting can make you gain weight instead of the other way around.

A healthy option is to enjoy these juices a few days a week in replacement of a refined carbohydrate junk food. Be it weight loss or skin and hair care, these juice recipes are tasty, healthy, and easy to make. Take a look.
