When it comes to losing weight, there is no right perfect solution that is right for everyone. We are all different, we all have different tastes, different schedules and there are things that some of us are more comfortable with than other people. This is why it is important for individuals to evaluate what is their best option for losing weight. There is no shortage of weight loss options to try, and it may be that a juicing diet will be the most effective plan for you.

While many experts will always recommend a solid food diet, there are an increasing number of experts, including me, who believe that a juicing diet can be effective in helping people to lose weight. A well-balanced juice diet will provide all of the nutrients, vitamins and minerals you need on a daily basis but will also allow you the chance to lower the amount of calories you consume. You will also find that juices are absorbed into your body easily, helping you to take in more nutrients in an easier manner.

Here are five of the best juices for weight loss:

Carrot juice

This is a juice that is widely available to buy but you can also make your own carrot juice at a fraction of the cost. This is a very healthy juice, one that is very rich in vitamin A. You will find that carrot juice contains a great range of minerals like potassium, magnesium and calcium, while it is also recognised as being a great source of carotenes. When you drink carrot juice, you can lose weight but you will also be boosting your body's ability to protect and heal itself, making it an excellent choice for a post-workout juice.

Cranberry Juice

When it comes to vitamin C, which is vital in breaking down fat, you will find that cranberry juice is one of the most effective sources you can find. It is a juice that is packed full of nutrients that can help you to feel lighter. Cranberry juice is highly recommended for people suffering from UTIs and bladder infections but it is a juice that can provide weight loss benefits.

Pear Juice

As a sweet and tasty fruit, a pear can be a nice treat but it can also provide you with a great range of minerals and vitamins. Pear juice is packed with vitamin C and it also offers potassium, magnesium and phosphorous, all of which are vital components in helping you to lose weight.

Blueberry Juice

This juice has a very rich colour, which is a good way of telling you that it is a viable source of antioxidants. This helps to lower the level of fat reserves in your body while also strengthening the self-defence mechanisms in your body. This style of juice is low on calories but rich in vitamin C and fibre, making it an excellent choice for people looking to get fitter and healthier.

Pomegranate Juice

Pomegranate juice is a very popular form of juice and with its high antioxidant content and great taste, you will find that adding a glass of this juice to your daily routine provides you with plenty of benefits.

Juicing for weight loss can be fun, especially if you've tried the vast amounts of 'commercial diets' now available. Having run retreats specifically for weight loss, the results can be amazing, with reports up to 10lb in just one week and nearly 80% continuing to lose weight via juicing post retreat - juicing will remain one of my choices for a healthier lifestyle shift.
