How To Incorporate Juicing Into Your Diet


In recent years, juicing has become exceedingly popular, however, so many people are actually using the benefits of juice completely wrong. 

Many focus on getting a personal blender and then juicing for a detox, cleanse, or to lose a bit of weight. However, juicing can be so much more than this 

Sure cleanses and detoxes have benefits, but that is not the pinnacle, the real and lasting results that come with juicing are when you combine it into your weekly/daily diet. 

So, how can you do this? 

Well, let us talk to you about juicing a bit more! 

Why Should You Juice?

Why juice? Good question! Before we look at how you should be juicing, we want to quickly cover why it is a good idea to bring juicing into your life! 

  • Easy digestion.
  • Your body can absorb nutrients easier and faster.
  • Juicing can help you to get a wider variety of vegetables and fruits that you may not otherwise consume on a regular basis. 
  • Juicing helps us to change our palette to enjoy healthier options. 
  • Provides you with an energy boost without caffeine, which often makes us crash. 

There are plenty of other reasons why you should juice, but these are probably the most important ones, of course, we need those good nutrients to be able to get them from a reliable source. 

Most of us lack a lot of essential nutrients and balance in our diets, juicing can help us to correct this.

How Do You Incorporate Juicing Into Your Diet

How you make juicing fit into your diet is totally dependent on why you decided to start juicing in the first place. Let us discuss a few examples of why you might decide to start juice. 

However, please note that everyone has their own reasonings.

Losing Weight

Losing weight is one of the most common reasons to juice at. Losing weight is a combination of self-care, exercise, and a good, healthy diet

Juice can fit into this, having juice for breakfast, or 2 snacks is a good option. If you introduce juice into your breakfast routine 3–4 times per week this can help you. It also helps you to reduce processed fats and help you choose whole foods. 

This helps with losing weight as you flood your body with nutrients and essential vitamins. You also change your palette, so you start to crave healthy options. 

Juice can also be very filling so can stave off cravings and the urge to snack. Juice also gives a lot of energy and so you will have more energy to work out and keep going through your day. 

However, do not try to replace meals with juice on a regular basis. Also avoid only juicing fruits for this, as fruits can have a very high sugar content!

Fighting Off Ails/ Disease

This does not work in every case, so make sure that you contact your doctor beforehand. 

Depending on what ails you have, juicing can be very useful, this is especially true for illnesses such as Gastroparesis. 

If you suffer from this then you should do a juice/ smoothie cleanse. Then ease back into regular foods. 

However, be aware that not everyone is the same, and that you should speak to a doctor before doing anything, nutritionists can help also. 

How To Make Healthy Juices

  • Always limit added sugars. Some recipes will ask for added sugar, honey, syrup, and so on. Most diets are already jam-packed with abundances of sugars, so try to minimize these additions. Added sugars end up as calories. 
  • Try blending instead of extracting juice, blend edible parts of fruits and vegetables to produce a drink that has more fiber and nutrients. If it is thick then add water. 
  • Always wash fruit and vegetables before you use them, even if you peel them first. Also be cautious with pre-cut veg and fruit, and sprouts which can harbour E. coli and other bacteria. 
  • Use pulp in other areas. Many of us leave the pulp after juicing, but if you mix it into baked goods or soups you can increase how much fiber you’re consuming, and fiber is very good for us!
  • If you use juice from a store, then always pick pasteurized juice where you can prevent any foodborne illnesses. Most juices that are sold in stores are pasteurized to prevent harmful bacteria. 


Juicing is a great way to get more nutrition and fibre into your diet, most of us do not get enough nutrients, so juice can act as a helping hand to reach nutrition goals!
