Most individuals are desperate to lose weight and do it fast. Perhaps it's for a wedding or a high school reunion, or maybe it's totally because they ate too much food over the winter and now need to visit the beach and not look like a sausage in a two piece.

When the clock is ticking, we search for a fast way to get rid of those extra pounds so we can look our very best. But is it realistically achievable to lose weight in only a week, and if it is, is it safe? Well, that depends on how you decide to lose the weight.

Enter a Juicer Diet
A juice cleanse is a fantastic way to shed extra pounds. However unlike other ways you might have struggled through before, juice fasting has a myriad of benefits that are some major icing on an already-sweet cake.

One incredible benefit of a juice diet is that by drinking freshly squeezed fruit and vegetable juices only, you are giving your body a much needed break from the act of digestion. Have you ever thought about how much energy it takes to digest all of your food? You'd be amazed. This is why on a juice cleanse people might notice that the body's energy goes way up. The energy you normally use for the act of digestion can now be used for other things, such as detoxifying cells, healing other organs of disease and getting rid of dangerous inflammation. You can't get these benefits on an Atkins diet, I promise.

How Much Weight Can You Honestly Lose on a Juice DetoxCleanse?
To answer this question we have to decide how long of a juice diet we are talking about. A person can do a 1 day juice diet, a 3 day, 5 day, 10 day and even 30 day cleanse. Obviously the length of cleanse will determine how much weight loss is doable.

Let's take a look at a 10 day juice diet, as that is a realistic time frame. That is to say most people, even newbies to juice diets, have the will to do a 10 day fast and 10 days is also the perfect amount of time to really see and feel all of the amazing benefits.

By doing a 10 day juice diet, a person's body body will lose weight in 3 specific ways: water, waste and fat. Any shorter than 10 days and your body will mostly lose weight from water and waste loss only.

Shedding Water
Numerous men and women roll their eyes at water loss as anything significant because they assume it's not as good as fat loss. But let me tell you from personal experience - much of what makes us fat is not fat, it's bloat, pure and simple. You'd be stunned at how better you look, and how much better your clothes fit simply by losing 5 pounds of water weight.

Loss of Fecal Matter
An individual would be amazed at how the body eliminates old waste. Multiple days will have gone by without an individual eating any dense food, but the body will keep evacuating solid waste. In addition to the fact that this weight loss flatten the stomach, but the toxins are being released which will makes a person healthier.

Loss of Fat
The fat loss will start around days 7 - 10. At this point your body will be forced to turn to stored energy to fuel itself. It goes without saying that an individual will have a whole bunch of new energy as well, so physical activity will be more fun. The more you move, the more you will burn.

It's safe and fair to say that during a 10 day diet, an individual can expect to lose anywhere from 8 to 12 pounds, give or take. Okay, guilty, 10 days is actually more than a 7 day week, but I believe those 3 extra days are definitely worth it!
