Is it okay to do a juice fast as a diabetic?

Not a good idea: As a diabetic, you need to have mixed meals, including complex carbohydrates, fiber (to total 35 grams daily), lean protein and a bit of fat (not a lot). This, along with any medications you may take, helps to stabilize and regulate blood sugar levels throughout the day and night. A juice fast would eliminate several of these important components of a diabetic meal plan. ...Read more

Can you tell me which foods to avoid on a juice cleanse/fast?

Avoid fasting.: The real question is, not which foods to avoid during a fast, but whether fasting itself is a good idea. The colon does not benefit from juice cleanses and fasting. There are no toxins build up inside the colon, despite what you may read on the Internet. It cleanses itself via bowel movements. Eating a high-fiber diet with lots of liquids is the best thing you can do for colon health. Good luck. ...Read more

Juice diet. : it depends what you mean by small meals in between. I would suggest staying the course with the juice diet with small bits of intermittent additions throughout the day. Perhaps a small piece of dark chocolate. A small piece of fruit. But overall no meals during your program ...Read more

No: Not unless it takes your breath away or starts to radiate to your arm or jaw; if the pain is enhanced by pressing on the chest wall, it's almost certainly chest wall pain. Perhaps the muscles that have been carrying the extra weight for a while are readjusting -- these things are mysterious. Congratulations on your pursuit of health; keep your physician informed. ...Read more

One way would be 12 hours w/food and 12 w/out or three days of food and one w/out. Again, w/doc supervision to avoid dehydration and blood sugar problems. Research intermittent fasting. ...Read more
