Is juice fasting safe for one month?

Is juice fasting safe for one month?

See below: Normally, juice fasting is not for this length of time. Longer periods of fresh, organic juicing detoxification should be combined with appropriate supplements and sources of protein (such as easily digested rice protein). Detoxification is actually pretty sophisticated when done optimally and it is best to be followed by an alternative medicine provider who has expertise in body detox. ...Read more

I am thinking of doing reboot juice diet for 15 days. Is this safe?

I am thinking of doing reboot juice diet for 15 days. Is this safe?

Probably, however...: I do not know the details of this particular plan but juice diets/fasts have been used for generations with great success. However, our bodies need about 30 grams of protein each day & juices do not supply this, so i advise supplementing with a bit of hempseed protein powder (which can be mixed with the juices). Consider adding orac energy greens or vitamineral greens for herbs to support detox! ...Read more

Is a juice detox safe?

Is a juice detox safe?

Depends...: Dr. Cole raises an important point. If you are using juicing in addition to a regular healthy diet to detox, then it is safe longterm. If you are doing a juice detox fast, then it can be problematic. The liver needs a tremendous amount of energy to work efficiently. Fasting longer than 24 hours can influence the metabolism of the liver. ...Read more

Is prune juice safe for everyday?

Prune juice: Regularity naturally involves doing what works for you. Lots of fresh leafy vegetables, and fruits with skins on (apple a day) and dried fruits like prunes and apricots work quite well. Increasing fiber (metamucil is one product). Many use MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) as gentle and reliable. Prune juice alone can wortk for some. Cruciferous veggies (cauliflower broccoli, cabbage) may be gassy. Daily use safe. ...Read more

I saw a movie about juicing and is it safe to only drink veggie juices for 60 days to lose weight?

I saw a movie about juicing and is it safe to only drink veggie juices for 60 days to lose weight?

Need protein and...: We need 40-50 grams of protein a day; if we don't get it from our diets we break down muscle, which is not healthy. I advise you also take a protein powder (from whey, hemp seed, rice or peas). As you lose weight it's important to get adequate vitamins & minerals to support your liver's ability to clear the toxins so a quality multivitamin is also advisable. Choose organic veggies. Good luck! ...Read more

I weight 160 and my height is 5'3 and im 21 years old, I want to try the juice fasting is it safe for me?

Not most effective: If you do it for a short period of time it's not harmful but i dont think its the best way to lose weight! you're going to shock your body, most likely consume less calories than your resting metabolic rate (calories burned by sitting and doing nothing)! this method of weight loss can cause a slow down in metabolism. When you go back to your regular diet, you may gain the weight back or worse! ...Read more

I'm curious about this whole notion of "detoxing" via different programs (i.e. a juice detox)  Under what circumstances are they safe to do?  Is it true that highly processed foods are "addictive" and add toxins to your body? What about those types of foo

Not proven: While the typical American diet with processed foods is not truly "addictive", eating a lot of processed foods, sugars, fats, alcohol, etc, presents a challenge to the body's metabolism. Relying on fasting & juices can affect fluid balance/electrolytes and be dangerous causing heart rhythm problems. Simplifying the diet and avoiding these foods over several weeks can be a safe "cleanse". ...Read more
