    What do women wish for? Well, unlike popular belief, we women don't always wish for a knight in shining armour. We simply wish to eat everything and not gain a single kilo! Well, weight loss has always been on every woman's 'to do' list and easy hacks are something everyone loves. This gets even more important after we have a baby, as post-pregnancy weight loss is perhaps the biggest challenge ever! So, here we are telling you it's that simple – just drink some juice to lose weight!

    Weight loss is a struggle in various ways. Owing to our lifestyle these days, it becomes rather difficult to maintain healthy habits and spare some time to take care of one's own fitness.

    Especially, when it comes to mothers, their days are packed to the brim and all they can simply wish for is perhaps some extra rest in a day. Result - bad eating habits and lack of physical activity leading to constant weight gain!

    Losing weight is certainly not an easy task, but just like every game has some cheat codes, there are some homemade fat burning drinks that you can take help of to hasten the process!

    How Does Juicing Help in Weight Loss?



    Juicing has several health benefits and one of the big ones is aiding weight loss. It is always a good idea to include a glass of fresh homemade natural fat burner drinks in your diet to fasten the process of your weight loss journey. It is a healthy habit that has an overall impact on your metabolism by ensuring you consume the required amounts of minerals, vitamins, antioxidants and fibres. It isn't about going on a liquid diet, but more of including these fat burning juices in your diet.


    Following are a few benefits of juicing in weight loss:

    • Easy to digest: Drinking vegetables as compared to eating them makes it easier for your body to digest them. It may take a long time to digest raw vegetables like tomatoes and cucumber; however, if you just juice them up, you will be getting an equal quantity of nutrients quicker and they will be easily digested as well.
    • Filling for the tummy: A freshly made glass of juice helps in curbing appetite, thereby filling your tummy with all the required nutrients. Consuming a glass of juice will keep you energised and not sluggish. So you can keep those unhealthy snacks at bay!
    • Cuts down on cravings: With every glass of juice that you drink, you are loading up on detoxifying minerals and required nutrients. This ensures that every cell of your body is reaping benefits and feeling full and ultimately it stops sending 'hunger' signals to your brain.
    • Variety and taste: Contrary to popular belief, green juices are quite delicious, provided they are freshly made at home, as fresh veggies contain more nutrition than packaged juices. In simple words, these are natural fat burning drinks that come with a lot of variety. Mix up celery and cucumbers one day and on the other try carrots. The options are unlimited!
