Holiday season it is about being merry, it is about eating, it is about drinking; this is the reason we gain about five pounds each of us during the season.
How to lose 5 lbs of Holiday Bloat in Just 2 days
There is an easy way to get your extra pounds off very fast; all it takes is a quick juice regime. Certain juices – especially lemon, apple, cranberry, cucumber, leafy green and tomato – can power off your pounds fastest. These juices are high in nutrients but low in sugar and will make you feel better and more energized.
Like many plans, this one keeps your calories low, 1000 per day. It also slashes sodium as it doses you with natural diuretics from cucumber, lemon and cranberry. It is easier to drink vegetables and fruits than eat them, so you are able to increase the amount you take in your body, delivering the maximum load of fat burning vitamins and antioxidants.
You can make your juice the night before and have it waiting in a thermos in your fridge. It is a great way to start your weight loss.
