Can You Lose Weight Drinking Carrot Juice?
Yes and here's why - carrots are packed with nutrition but low in fat and calories. Juicing carrots removes the fiber and makes the nutrients more easily available for your body to use.
Carrot juice is also high in vitamins, minerals and helps you feel full longer. That means, you won't want to snack as much!
When Should I Drink This Carrot Juice Recipe for Weight Loss?
There is varied opinion as to when you should drink a carrot juice recipe for weight loss.
Some people say you should drink it in the morning on an empty stomach. Others say it doesn't matter, just drink it.
Since carrot juice is high in antioxidants and can help strengthen your immune system, adding it daily, anytime of the day, is a great addition to maintain health. (1)
I just drink it each day sometime (it doesn't matter when) during the day.
I do not drink it first thing in the morning because I like to make it fresh and to be honest, I am not going to get up and juice that early in the day!
How Do I Lose Weight Drinking Carrot Juice?
To lose weight, you need to take in fewer calories than your body burns.
Because carrot juice is so low in calories, but still has plenty of nutrition and helps keep you feeling full, you are not as likely to consume as many calories.
So, if you don't eat or drink as many calories, chances are, you will lose weight.
And, when you are actively taking steps to improve your health and lose weight, your mindset is such that you will not want to overeat and will have greater self-control.
Is Carrot the Best Juice for Weight Loss?
It is definitely at the top of the list! Carrot juice is full of nutrition, low in calories and fat but still high in fiber.
Drinking carrot juice will keep you feeling full longer, can be substituted for a meal and ward off those snack cravings.
Carrot juice is also known to increase bile secretion and this helps burn fat which equals weight loss. (2)
Why Add Cabbage to this Juice Recipe?
Cabbage is another nutrient dense vegetable. As part of the Brassica genus of vegetables, which includes broccoli, cauliflower and kale, it is low in calories but packs a nutritional punch! (3)
It is a good source of micronutrients, vitamins and mineral. (4)
The health benefits of cabbage comes from its nutrient profile that give us significant amounts of:
- vitamin A
- vitamin B6
- improves digestion
- may help lower blood pressure
- can help lower cholesterol levels and keep your heart healthy
Why You Should Add Cucumber
Cucumber juice is especially good for hydration, fiber, as well as, the nutrients it contains.
Hydration is very important for weight loss and people who drink more and stay hydrated, have been shown to lose more weight. (5)
Adding cucumber juice also adds to your daily intake of vegetables which is important for healthy living.
Why You Should Include Ginger for Weight Loss
Ginger has been shown to help with fat burning, carbohydrate digestion and helps balance insulin secretion. It is also a natural appetite suppressant and anti-inflammatory.
All this adds up to the fact that ginger is good for you, helps weight loss and should be included in your diet. (6, 7)

Do You Drink a Carrot Juice Recipe for Weight Loss - Leave a Comment, I Would Love to Hear About It!
one inch of ginger
I make each serving separate I don’t put it in the refrigerator for another meal I make another set of carrot juice....decide how many carrots you’re going to have since I make it for one meal I do three carrots and half of cucumber.. two granny apples....one inch of ginger...I want to have it for another meal or snack I make this separately again might have a sensitive stomach if I make a lot and then reuse it it doesn’t taste as well and I don’t think it’s healthy for my self
Carol, I agree that it tastes the best fresh and is the highest in nutrients when freshly made! For me, it comes down to time so it is easier to make enough for a day all at once rather than juicing for each time.
Yourself you lose so much if you make a lot and you don’t drink it all at once make a smaller amount and have definitely have it in the morning and perhaps in the afternoon twice a day is awesome the carrots are use celery instead of cucumbers celery is a natural salt granny apples and ginger and carrots of course people stopped me on the street asked me how do I have the scan I have a tight it’s flawless it’s beautiful
Take care it’s at least four organic celery a few stocks organic two organic Granny apples peeled and four carrots organic everything has to be organic and an inch of ginger that is organic and you’re set
I don’t know enough to say if what I decided to do was too sugary but everything I used was natural so that’s a plus ? I blended five carrots, one kiwi, one apple, half tsp fresh ginger, half cup orange juice and one cup water and it was actually pretty good I must say.

Track your macros
Your “macros” are your grams of fats, protein and internet carbs (no longer to be stressed with calorie counting!).
UFO, thanks for the comment!

No doubt its one of the healthy juice you can have. Only suggestion is always make it fresh. I usually add pineapple to it and bit of Flex seeds....full of fibre and keeps you full for more number of hours....Cheers
