@marinewife4:  I was just looking into one that last 2 weeks and you make all of your own juice. All you can have for 2 weeks is juice made out of fruits and veggies. FI wanted to get in on it too so we went to Walmart and found a few juicers for $30 and under. I googled jucing recpies and I found alot of really good ones. We are going to start it after the holidays.

We tried to do a Dr. Oz juice cleanse a year or so ago! We made it like 1.66 days, and then broke down and ate grilled cheeses, lol.

It was SUPER expensive to buy all of the ingredients for it, too!

You don’t need to follow a certain recipe or plan to do a juice cleanse. Any kind of juice fast will be good for you, if you juice a wide range of fruits and vegetables. Leafy things are difficult (though not impossible) to juice, but all semi-firm and firm fruits and veggies are good and easy. Some of my favorites are beets, carrots, and oranges. 

The cleanses I usually do don’t last longer than a week, and the last two days I start to introduce solid veggies slowly again so it’s not a shock to my system.

One thing I like to do is get a bunch of random colorful veggies and fruits, and juice three of them together at the same time. That way you can get a juice packed full of vitamins, and also make sure there’s a yummy flavor in there too.

A fruit/veg only diet is not properly balanced.  Your body needs protein to function.  You will also feel quite hungry without protein to keep the full sensation longer.
 
Fruit and veg are a PART of a healthy diet, not a healthy diet in and of themselves.
 
 

@marinewife4:  You body doesn’t need to be “cleansed” your organs do that every day for you. 

Typically any type of detox or cleanse is just code for an ultra low calorie diet, which doesn’t actually cleanse anything, and weight you loose is water weight or muscle mass, if longer term. Also what exactly are you hoping to cleanse?  Pesticides, environmental toxins (which ones?), mercury, mould, etc? Could juice actually remove any of those from your body?

There are ZERO scientific evidence based studies to support any bendefits from “detoxing”. 

If in fact they actually had a scientific benefit medical professionals would be recommending them to obese clients, Big Pharma would be making them into a tablet that could be taken to lose weight.

@andielovesj:  +1. 

 

i do think a cleanse is good if you are just trying to get rid of the holiday bloat. but that’s about it. i occasionally drink juice to get more vitamins in my diet. carrot and apple juice is delicious! but as a raw food, I can’t stand carrots. 

sticking to veggies, fruits and proteins will give more long term benefits than a simple juice cleanse.
