Mean Green Juice Recipe to Lose Weight Fast and Healthily

It’s a myth that juices make you fat. Perhaps there may be some truth to that if you are consuming store-bought juice which has been heated and lost most of its goodness, but freshly squeezed juices, especially if you use them to replace a meal, will bring fast weight loss – naturally and healthily.

Most of us eat a highly processed diet which acidifies in the body, resulting in weight gain, illness and disease. If you make a point of eating 80% alkalizing food in your daily diet, you will lose weight automatically as the body begins to correct the pH balance.

Added to that, juice digests in the system really fast compared to a meal which may take 3 hours! This will contribute to fast weight loss that is not detrimental to your health. And if you really want to go all-out, going on a juice fast will result in exceptionally fast weight loss, although be prepared to experience detoxification symptoms, such as headaches, fatigue, backache, diarrhoea, etc. I personally prefer a juice fast to having just water on a fast, especially if you still need to work while fasting. Having juice instead of just water on a fast will help make a fast a lot easier.

Here is my favourite juice recipe that’s packed with nutrients and will help you lose weight fast. Although it contains herbs and veggies, the fruit makes it sweet. The parsley actually gives it a unique flavour that can almost be described as addictive!

The Mean Green Juice (makes 1 – 2 glasses):


2 apples – keep the skins on but remove the pips and cut into wedges

1 pear – keep the skin on but remove the pips and cut into wedges

1 kiwi – keep the skin on and cut into wedges

Handful grapes – remove stalks

celery stick

3 spinach leaves

1 broccoli floret


handful parsley

handful mint


Simply juice all together and enjoy. It can be refrigerated for a maximum period of 48 hours. Remember that light and heat destroy nutrients, so keep it cool and dark.

Another tip is that if you go on a juice fast, be sure to prepare your body by eating raw food for a minimum period of one day prior to fasting.

Also remember that before you go on a fast of any kind, it may be wise to consult with your doctor first, especially if you have a medical condition or take chronic medication.
