Juicing Keep it simple. The main objective with juicing is to lower your caloric intake to approximately 500 cal per day. Each smoothie that is typically blended has only 50 to 60 cal total allowing you to consume almost 9 to 10 per day. Patients often will stay on the liquid diet for the entire weekend and your weight loss medcation will help you tolerate the hunger and such a drop in calories. Juicing on Saturday and Sunday drops your caloric intake to approximately 500 for eight days out of 30 in the month. When calculating over a period of approximately 30 days, 8 days of Juicing or Liquid Diet is equal to about a 6 pound boost in weight loss each month.

Popular Weight Loss Strategies: A Review of Four Weight Loss Techniques
Water Consumption (Increase your water intake to 3 - 4L per day). When drinking this amount of water then you must add some salt to your diet also. 2 Liters of water daily is the required minimum while you are on weight loss medication. Increasing to 3-4 liters will Boost your monthly weight loss by approximately another 3 pounds. With fluids in your system, weight loss medication works 2-3 times better and also you will tolerate the medication without difficulty. Patients who are poor at drinking water always eat more solids and therefore more calories. If you cannot increase your water intake to at least 2 liters, then the majority of patients EVENTUALLY will become overweight.

Walking (Walk 10 miles on the weekend...5miles on Saturday and 5 miles on Sunday), Many forms of exercise cause too much hunger during weight loss. It is important to avoid weightlifting, kickboxing, boot camp, and similar types of exercise that cause hunger after you are done. You may lose 300 calories during your workout but afterwards gauranteed, you will eat 400 calories due to hunger. Food management is 99% the main issue with weight loss and not exercise. We would prefer you to walk, jog, or run which are the more natural types of exercise that spread out the effort and do not cause extreme hunger. If you walk 10 miles every weekend, thats an additional 40 miles each month and will likely Boost your monthly weight loss by another 3 pounds.

Correcting Sleep Deprivation Increased wakefulness is directly related to increased calorie consumption. Certainly, the greater number of hours that you are awake during the day will directly lead to an increased number of calories that are eating. If you are awake then you WILL feel hunger and must continue eating. Also if you are active in anyway then you will experience hunger and must eat to stay awake. Often, it is simply a habit to stay awake late at night despite being bored and boredom always leads to eating! If you can increase sleep either by a nap in the middle of the day or by increasing night time total sleep to 8 to 9 hours, this will improve your weight loss considerably. It is also a very effective strategy to use a benign sleep medication such as Benadryl 25 - 50 mg or Melatonin 5 mg prior to bedtime while dieting to assure that you are sleeping for a longer period of time consistently each night. Typically this helps to boost weight loss by another 3-4 pounds.

Zero/Low Carbohydrate Low carbohydrate intake is associated with much improved weight loss. The physiology behind low carbohydrate or zero carbohydrate weight loss is associated with one factor in particular which is decreasing insulin release in the body. Insulin is a very strong anabolic growth hormone. Anyone dieting with significant carbohydrate intake continues to maintain high insulin levels in the body and therefore any weight will come off much more slowly. Diets that are high in protein or fats are much more superior than dieting and still eating a large amount of sugars.
