If you want to lose weight without the hassle of going to the gym or starving yourself to the point that you’re only drinking water everyday, then a cayenne pepper juice diet is your best bet. For one, this is actually a short term eating plan, which means that you would only have to follow the diet regimen for a short period of time (usually about two weeks). It is good if you are planning to start a long-term plan. Another good thing about this program is that you will see positive results within days. You don’t have to wait for weeks to see the effects on your body. And did we say that this diet is cheap? Most, if not all, ingredients are readily available in your local grocery store so preparing the juice is as easy as cooking pancakes.
So what is it about cayenne pepper that it is so beneficial? Cayenne pepper or chilli has been used as a medicine for centuries. It is said to be the cure for health problems like stomach pains, circulatory diseases, rheumatism and sore throat. Capsaicin is its active component. Others refer to this cayenne juice plan as a master cleanse because it is said to cleanse our bodies from harmful toxins and remove our cravings for alcohol, drugs, tobacco and even eating junk food. Some experts say that the program is more of a “fasting” than an actual “diet” because those who are into this eating plan are not supposed to eat solid food. This is the reason some people feel a little dizzy or almost reach the point of fainting with just a slight physical activity like walking— since our body receives less nutrients than what it needs to perform normally. The proponents of this regimen say, however, that it is gentler to the body (as opposed to fasting) because the juice still provides our body with essential vitamins and minerals.
Remember that this is not the ultimate weight loss solution. Medical experts believe that the effects are not permanent. There is a possibility that you will eventually gain back in time the weight you have lost. This why some people use this diet as a starting point for their long-term weight-loss program.
But no matter what program you prefer, changing your lifestyle and eating habit is probably the best way to lose weight. Eating healthy food and having regular exercise are two things that we should always do. Diet programs are only there to enhance our well-being. The choice of living a healthy lifestyle is still up to us.
