Juicing to lose weight:

While this recipe may not appear to be low in sugar or carbs, the juices are very filling and will keep you from wanting sweets or other snacks. I drank this juice or variations of it before my daughter wedding in 2021 and lost 13 lbs.

I combined this juice with a regular walking routine of 10,000 steps each day and a weight lifting to help shed the pounds. This juice replaced my desire for a cocktail in the evening. It was loaded with vitamins- especially potassium and vitamin C. It is such a mood booster to enjoy. Make a tall pitcher of this juice and treat yourself to a healthy alternative to that margarita or glass of wine.
