The forgotten juice

One of a great get-back-on-track strategies right after the eating excess of the holidays is a juicing program. Or even just add more juices to your diet (adjusting the overall calories, naturally.). Juices from fruits and vegetables cleanse your system, jump-starting detoxification and weight loss.

Burn fat and relieve pain with the one secret power juice

The one secret power juice that everyone forgot about is chile pepper juice.

Chile peppers contain the substance capsaicin which determines the fire-power of the pepper. It triggers the brain to produce endorphins, natural painkillers that promote a sense of well-being and stimulation. A healthy speed-up of your digestion can be expected as well.

This what you can do with following chillies:

Habanero - add just a little with your papaya, mango, pineapple or passion fruit blend. Don't overdo it! This one is one of the hottest peppers of all.

Jalapeno - add some to your carrot, spinach, and celery juice

Pimento - easy to get in markets. Add to a mix of cucumber, beet and carrot juice.

And what if you can't have access to any of those? The easy solution is Tabasco. Find a Tabasco brand that is natural and made without corn syrup.

And no access to fresh juices? V- 8 does the trick. Use one little can of V-8 juice and add a small shake of Tabasco. Find some carrot juice, mix and shake and drink it up.

Another way to punch up your juice mixes: add some seaweed, such as granulated kelp, to season your blends. Seaweed contains iodine, which stimulates the thyroid gland; key in any kind of weight loss program.

Try this juicing program for 2 days and it will set you to the road of continuing focus to health and weight loss.

Cheers and a Happy New Year.
