Losing weight and being healthy is often on our minds, but not everyone has the time to spend several hours a week at the gym. The beauty of dieting and cleansing with juices and smoothies is that you can take them anywhere, and they only take minutes to prepare. Juicing can be done from one to three days to cleanse the body of unwanted toxins and lose weight, while smoothies provide a longer-term meal-replacement strategy that keeps you feeling full.
