A green detox juice recipe based on the desert island juice ingredients selected by Mark Beddoe.
Juicing for Weight Loss
Mark has lost 42 pounds since he starting juicing just 3 months ago. He says:
“I had just reached a point where I had to do something. I had gained weight steadily over the previous 10 years. My previous job meant lots of travel, lots of hotels, lots of restaurants, lots of long hours, lots of sandwiches and snacks (usually chocolate and crisps) on the go and very little family and me time. My metabolism had completely stalled and my health had suffered in a number of areas”
Mark says watching Fat Sick and Nearly Dead put things into perspective, as did seeing seeing how I lost over 70 pounds and transformed my health.
Mark also found juicing has helped with his gout pain.
- 1 apple
- 4 kale leaves
- 2 sticks of celery
- 1/2 cucumber
- 1/2 lime (skin on)
- 1 large chunk of ginger (most of my recipes have a thumb sized piece of ginger, for this recipe use double the amount)
How to Make It
Simply juice the apple, kale, celery, cucumber, lime and ginger and serve over ice.
Note: if you are using a centrifugal juicer (like the Philips wide neck juicers, Sage juicers or Breville Juice Fountain) then I suggest chopping the apple in half, then put one half of the apple in the chute, packing the kale, ginger and lime in tightly and placing the other piece of apple on top. Then juice the celery and cucumber. This will get you the maximum yield from the kale.
