One Ingredient Juice Recipe For Weight Loss and Transformation – Saturday Strategy
POSTED ON March 18, 2017 BY Drew Canole
Today, we are going to be talking about ONE-INGREDIENT juicing recipes that will help with your weight loss transformation! You can use all of these on their own OR, as I will show you at the end of this post, you can put them all together to make one weight-loss boosting, nutrient-dense juice that is absolutely going to blow your socks off!
#1. Celery Juice
One of my favorite things to juice regularly is celery. Now you may not like the taste of celery, but I want to encourage you to get used to it! The remedying properties of celery can be absolutely life changing once you begin to use them often. When it comes to your weight loss journey, celery has got your back!
Do you struggle with digestive issues? Are you having a hard time with those last 10 pounds? Do you have abdominal bloating and gas? Do you get sick on a regular basis? Then you’ve got to give this nutrient-dense vegetable a try!
Celery juice supports your gut’s microbiome, which is responsible for 70-80% of your immune system function. And that’s not all! Your microbiome also synthesizes 90% of the feel-good hormone, serotonin.
Bottom line… do you want to be happy? Of course you do! Juice celery!
How to use celery for weight loss: Juice 2-3 ounces of fresh celery juice and drink every day for 7 days. This will soothe and revitalize your entire digestive system.
#2. Cucumber Juice
The mighty cucumber is actually a FRUIT! It has seeds in the middle, which technically classifies it as a fruit and not a vegetable.
There is an enzyme inside cucumbers that is really beneficial to anyone going through a lifestyle transformation. This little enzyme helps the body absorb proteins more effectively. This allows the body to put on more lean muscle while also burning away fat. This is just one reason why the cucumber is so important for your overall body transformation!
Speaking of protein… have you tasted our new organic Complete Protein powder? Oh my, you are going to love it! This stuff tastes like ice cream and is packed with enough whole-food-based vitamins and minerals to work as a meal replacement and multivitamin! Hop over to this page to try it.
How to use cucumber for weight loss: You can juice cucumber on its own or use it as a watery base for your other juice recipes. You can use this daily! It may be especially beneficial on days when you workout.
Turmeric was recently named 2017’s anti-inflammatory Superfood Of The Year! And it deserves every bit of the recognition it’s getting. Turmeric gets rid of inflammation in the body… and I’m not pulling that from thin air. There are over 8,000 clinical trials, studies and articles published on the incredible remedying benefits of this little root.
When you are carrying around a lot of extra weight, it means that you also have toxic buildup in your body. These little toxins mess with your adrenals, your hormones, your mood, your endocrine system, your reproductive system AND your ability to lose weight as quickly as you want.
When you target this inflammation at its source with a powerful superfood like turmeric, your health will begin to shift.
How to use turmeric for weight loss: I would suggest juicing turmeric (1-3 inches per juice) regularly for best results. OR, if you don’t have a juicer… no sweat. We have a powerful high-quality turmeric supplement that will give you 1000-2000 milligrams of this stuff every single day so that you can receive all the benefits.
#4. Leafy Greens
You simply cannot go wrong with vitamin and mineral rich disease-fighting leafy greens! One mineral of particular importance in leafy greens is MAGNESIUM. A lot of people are deficient in magnesium, which is responsible for over 300 biochemical reactions in the body, including enzyme activity, energy production, DNA and RNA function and electrolyte balance.
Not getting enough minerals in your diet also leads to cravings like CARBS and SUGAR. So if you want to beat those nasty little longings for sweets, then load up your juice with some leafy greens!
How to use leafy greens for weight loss:National guidelines say that you need AT LEAST 2 ½ cups of vegetables every single day, but I think you need at least double that if you really want to lose weight and feel amazing. You need 2 cups of leafy greens to equal 1 cup of vegetables. That is a lot of salad, I know. But if you put handfuls of leafy greens into your juices and smoothies every day, then you will be getting what you need without having to chew up a salad for 2 hours!
A lot of weight problems people are having aren’t because of their eating habits or what they are doing in the gym… it’s their emotions! How many times during the day do your emotions get a little out of control? Or become erratic? Probably more times than you’d like!
Parsley is a settling, calming herb. It helps to soothe your emotions and make you feel more stable.
How to use parsley for weight loss: Simply add a handful of parsley to your juice when you are feeling anxious, upset, frustrated or angry. Especially if your emotions lead to overeating or binge eating, parsley should be your go-to for when you need to CHILL.
An apple a day keeps the doctor away! Apples are a delicious way to sweeten up any juice recipe and make it more enjoyable to drink, especially if you are just getting into juicing. The best thing about apples is, not only are they sweet, but they are one of the most detoxifying foods on the planet.
How to use apples for weight loss: Eat apples every single day. They are nutrient rich, detoxifying superfoods that will benefit almost every organ in your body. When I am in detox mode, I will eat or juice up to 3 apples a day.
Avocados are, in my opinion, one of the most nurturing “motherly” foods on the planet. Avocados benefit the reproductive system and even have the appearance of a womb when you slice them in half. They even take 9 months to grow… the same amount of time it takes to grow a baby!
Avocados have incredible fertility benefits and are one of the best foods to feed a young baby who is just beginning solid foods. The healthy fats and other nutrients in an avocado are similar to the composition of breast milk. That’s amazing!
How to use avocado for weight loss: Instead of juicing avocados, I would suggest throwing them in a blender with your juice to make it more creamy and delicious. Avocados will help to fill you up and provide you with nutrients that curb cravings and help you feel good all day long.
Juice all the ingredients except the avocado. Then pour the juice in a blender, add the avocado and blend until smooth. Drink immediately.
Food is medicine, my friend. It may surprise you that such simple ingredients can help you transform your mind and body. But when you support your body’s natural way of dealing with fat, toxins and excess weight, you’ll begin to heal from the inside out. And you’ll be able to watch the weight melt off!

During my FitLife transformation, I lost 70 pounds! That's why I signed up for the protocol, but the most exciting result is that I found ME in the process. I had been hiding under a pile of pounds, self-doubt, and grief! FitLife changed my life and I knew I had to share it with others.
