Burn Fat & Alkalize While You Sleep with this Metabolism Boosting, Liver Healing Juice

liver metabolism boosting juice

Ha! Sounds like a late-night infomercial: “Burn fat while you sleep! – but this REALLY works.

I’ve seen this juice make a noticable difference for so many of my Alkaline Base Camp members, my clients old and new.

The reason it is so powerful is because it works with your body mechanics in three key ways:

  1. It Boosts Your Metabolism When Your Body is Normally Processing At It’s Slowest: Your metabolism slows considerably while you’re asleep, meaning your body is waaaaay less forgiving of your possible little treats and naughty foods (which generally happen more often at night right?According to research published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, when you eat a meal high in acidic, unhealthy fats and sugar (i.e. not healthy fats like omega 3 and saturated fats from coconut) these unhealthy foods cause a spike in your blood-sugar levels called “post-prandial hyperglycemia.” In the long term this can lead to an increased risk of heart attack, but there are short-term effects as well, such as:
    • Tissue inflammation
    • Blood vessel damage
    • The rapid creation of free radicals (that cause oxidation aka cell death and inflammation)
    • Blood pressure raises
    • A surge and drop in insulin leaving you feeling hungry again right after your meal

    So when you are having these types of foods late at night you’re getting all of the negatives of this post-prandial hyperglycemia, all while your metabolism is shutting down and you’re laying still and flat for up to 8 hours!

  2. It provides vital nutrients needed for detoxification during the most critical time – During the night the body rebuilds, replenishes and regenerates – this is the best time for detoxification. All of the body’s functions can focus on this role, rather than when we’re awake and a million different things are going on!According to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), the liver functions at it’s best between 1am and 3am. So supporting the liver at night with liver-nourishing nutrients is a brilliant help and will speed your rebuild & repair like nothing else.
  3. Your body has to have enough blood volume to detox successfully. Low blood volume is a big factor in chronic fatigue, chronic pain and more. The proper environment for detoxification can also lead to a good, strong, fast metabolism, which in turn can lead not only to an eased detoxification process, but also reduced body fat storage…So it all works synergistically!


Too Much Body Fat Is a Sign Of Overacidity & a Need to Detoxify

When we consume more acids than we can successfully buffer and eliminate, we suffer from what the science community calls ‘low-grade metabolic acidosis’.

The study says: “Acidogenic diets, which are typically high in animal protein and salt and low in fruits and vegetables, can lead to a sub-clinical or low-grade state of metabolic acidosis.” — Source: Examining the relationship between diet-induced acidosis and cancer; Journal of Nutrition & Metabolism; Robey IF; 2012; 9. 72


One of the outcomes of this metabolic acidosis is that the acids, and their toxic by-products (such as candida) are stored by the body in fat and carried away to safety somewhere away from your vital organs – this is largely the stomach, buttocks and thighs.

When we start to alkalize our diet, providing the vital macronutrients that the body needs to operate optimally, we send our body the signal that it now has the tools to detoxify and get rid of these fat-bound toxins.

So out go the toxins and with it, the unwanted fat.

Here’s The Juice:

Serves 2

  • 1 cucumber
  • Handful of parsley
  • Handful of cilantro (coriander>
  • 1/4 lemon (peeled)
  • 1.5 cm root ginger
  • 1/2 beetroot
  • Optional but great: 50ml aloe vera juice
  • Filtered water to taste


  1. Juice all of the ingredients and add filtered water to taste
  2. Consume after 4pm in the evening, ideally, and if you’ve made enough for two – store the 2nd juice in an airtight container in the fridge ready for tomorrow evening

You don’t have to do this for the rest of your life…an evening juice routine is not needed forever…

This is something you can do on and off, maybe for a week at a time when you’re feeling like you need a kick start. If you can still have your morning juice that is a GREAT combination as you’re going to sleep with your body primed with nutrients to work throughout your rest, and are then breaking your fast in the morning with another nutrient-dense juice or smoothie.

IF you do that you’ll see sensational results.

Plus of course, it is still just making 1 juice per day:

[+] Today: make your AM juice x2 and put one in the fridge for tomorrow
[+] Tomorrow you make your PM juice x2 and put one in the fridge for tomorrow

And so on!

For the morning juice you could try something like this oneor this one.

I hope this juice works wonders for you as it has done for so many of my past and present clients!

    I don’t have a juicer. Can I just toss the ingredients into a vitamix?

    I was diagnosed with third stage kidney disease six months ago. Although I did every thing I was told to do, I had a difficult time getting my lab values to improve. Three months ago, I found your plan and every since I start observing the alkaline/acid base foods and following many of your recipes, my lab values have improved significantly and all are norlmal except my grr which now is at 56. Much better than the 41 when I was first diagnosed. You need to talk more about how helpful your plan is with kidney disease. Oh yes, and I also have lost 6 pounds

    This says juice, but I don’t have a juicer. Can I blend in my high power blender and eat as a smoothie or should I strain it after blending?

    • ross Reply

      You can do – but it’s best to have as a juice.

  4. Sara Reply

    So do you recommend consuming this juice as a dinner? Have a fantastic day!


    • ross Reply

      Hey Sara – not for the long term. You definitely need to be getting a range of nutrients – including fibre and fats – at meal times. The juices should really be consumed alongside your regular meals.

    1/2 beetroot can be replaced with any violet color fruit?

    • ross Reply

      Hey – it *can* but beets have specifically been proven to have liver healing properties.

    Are all vegetables to be used raw, I.e beetroot, spinach.
    Someone told me that both spinach & Kale to be lightly steamed to remove a harmful chemical they contain. Up to now I’ve used everything raw & peeled as I can’t always get/ afford organic.
    Are there any fruit or veg that can’t be used raw.

    • Car Reply

      This is my question too.

      • ross Reply

        Don’t need to be steamed unless you are suffering from a severe thyroid issue (like, super severe) and even then the jury is out as to whether it’s necessary.

    Thanks Ross! You’re a star!

    Could this be a meal replacement food or is it best to have somethibg light in the evening with it?

    What do you reccomend? I am doing a kickstart to my alkaline diet again. I have all your books so its super easy to get on with it.

    Thanks. X
