Detox Juices for Weight Loss

Detox Juices for Weight Loss

Detox juices are here to stay. All over the net, they are touted as your weight loss trigger, nutrition booster, internal cleanser, whatever! Though they are easy to prep, detox juices have this tendency to get boring, I mean a chunk of veggies pureed in the blender with water! What else? 

At Khyra we don’t think so! Throw the monotony out the window and welcome our detox juice recipes! Yep we got you covered with over 20 great tasting juice recipes made with local ingredients. So no more balking at the thought of swallowing another glass of I’m-tired-of-this-stuff juice

These juices are supercharged with bioavailable vitamins, minerals, enzymes, antioxidants and fibre. To make the most of your weight loss efforts, take the juices after your hot water therapy and then last thing at night. You’ll soon see surprising fat loss all over your body. Other healthful benefits include better digestion, faster metabolism, reduced blood sugar, clearer skin, the list goes on

Remember, use minimal fruit while prepping detox juices and yes! fresh is best. Buy fresh produce and use them quickly too. Endeavour to use a juicer for prepping your juice, though a blender, fine mesh sieve or muslin cloth will do just fine. ENJOY!

For all the ingredients listed, do wash thoroughly in water removing dirt and cut into small sizes before juicing. If a recipe is too bitter, you can add a small chunk of apple or pineapple.

Khyra Blog

My name is Juliet and I’m a mom, businesswoman, blogger, aspiring baker and Vincent’s lifetime girl! As a passionate weight ‘loss enthusiast’, I help people overcome their weight challenges by providing motivation, meal plans, recipes, exercise plans, tips and tricks simply because I’ve been there.

I believe in life- in all its beauty, dangers, worries, fun, pains, work (O yes!) excitement, happiness. I know that within each one of us is a burning desire to share, to do good, to work, to find meaning, to enhance that which we perceive to be oh so not good about us.

Weight challenges are an individual thing. Beauty issues are in the eyes of the beholder (my take!). But then, there’s a common denominator in all our problems: they won’t go away on their own. 

There’s no one size fits all remedy for life’s problems. At khyra my aim is to provide you with the motivation, info, tools, time and community of like minds to help on your journey to a fit, graceful and trendy you. 

I’ll be sharing home grown, weight loss, beauty and fitness ideas that help the modern woman (and our men!) shed excess kilograms, keep the weight off, live healthy vibrant lives, enjoying themselves and being at their most beautiful and productive best

Visiting for the first time?  Welcome!  For you to have read this far, it means you are ready to take charge of your life, enjoy your time on the planet and give life your best shot. I welcome queries, suggestions and criticisms. Living is learning and Khyra ain’t no different!
