In brief: Healthy Lifestyle

Fad diets do not work.
No one can stay on them for the rest of their life & be healthy. Juice is just sugar & some vitamins & you are missing out on important nutrients. The weight you lost (usually just water weight) will come back. The best way to lose weight & keep it off is to develop a healthy lifestyle of eating 3-5 mini meals a day of nutritious foods & to exercise (any activity you like!).
