Weight loss is one topic on which you can find a lot of information through many different sources – from the internet and social media to magazines and newspapers. All of these sources are oozing with tips that could help you lose those extra kilos quickly and easily. But let’s not forget the first rule - a healthy, sustainable, and long-lasting weight loss journey has no shortcuts.

It requires many necessary changes to your lifestyle as well as diet for a significant change in your body. That does not mean that you have to follow a super strict diet plan or do high intensity workout, but one can always start slow and evolve while understanding your own body. Remember, balance is the key. 

One can start by making small changes in their diet. For instance, include more protein, fibre, and good fats. While protein helps fill you up and also regulate hunger hormone ghrelin, resulting in you craving less, fibre takes the longest to digest. That is why it stays in your system for a longer time and keeps you satiated. The feeling of fullness keeps you away from greasy, sugary, or fattening food, accelerating weight loss. Swapping certain ingredients with healthier alternatives also goes a long way in a healthy weight loss regimen. For instance, replace your sugary sodas, cola beverages and packaged fruit juices with sugar-free natural drinks to stay hydrated. 

And if you are thinking of which juice to go for, we’ve got you covered with one such option right here. With winters slowly descending, it is the time when fruit and veggies come in a whole lot of variety. Think of oranges, carrots, beetroots, spinach, and so on. Find below the recipe for orange, carrot, and ginger juice that can be a great addition to your weight loss diet.  

This juice is low in calories due to the presence of oranges and carrots, and full of natural flavours. Carrot is known to increase bile secretion, which helps in shedding extra kilos, while orange is low in calories and has zero-fat. Ginger, on the other hand, is good for digestion, which is key for weight loss. These three together makes for an unbeatable drink for weight loss. Need more reason.
