SKIP THE JUICE CLEANSE & DO ONE OF THESE INSTEAD18th April 2016
If the lure of hot cross buns and Cadbury creme eggs was little too-tempting, kick-starting the cold season with a juice cleanse might seem like a fail safe way to beat the weight gain, right?
Well, not necessarily. While the jury is still out on whether they are a healthy or effective method for weight loss (beyond the short-term), if your goal is to keep excess weight off and form healthy habits year round, it’s best to avoid the liquid diet trap.
Especially if you’re fit or planning to get fit. Why? Juice cleanses are proven to decrease muscle mass, thanks to the lack of amino acids in fruit and veg, that are normally prevalent in protein based foods like meat, dairy and legumes. And what’s the point in burpees and kettlebell swings if there’s nothing to show for it? Not to mention the whole hungry, grumpy, lightheaded thing.
So, this autumn, forget the juices and fire up your belly with these wholefood plans as created by some of Sydney’s leading health experts.
