Most of us have heard of a juicing diet and probably know the benefits, risks and effects of a juice cleanse. For those who are new to juicing, it is basically a type of diet that involves consuming only juices pressed from fruits and vegetables in an attempt to detoxify the body. A juice cleanse programme typically range from 3 to 10 days and usually involve consuming nothing but the juices, along with water for the whole period. Proponents of juicing claim that being on a juice fast will give our digestive system a rest while improving our body’s ability to absorb the nutrients from the fruits and vegetables.
There’s pros about juice diet but there are, of course, cons to just juice. Reaction towards juicing varies in accordance to individual’s body type, primary diet and lifestyle. Juicing experts recommend dedicating a few days of pre-cleanse to prepare for the juice fast. This is to eliminate potential unpleasant detox symptoms during the cleanse and to achieve best results. Avoid consuming caffeine, alcohol, sweets and processed food prior to juicing. During the cleanse, some may experience symptoms of fatigue, hunger, fainting, headaches, and frequent visits to the restroom are common as the body is undergoing the detoxification process.
For first-timers and weekend warriors who tend to indulge more on your rest days, it is wise to go on a short-term juice diet e.g. 1-3 days, rather than go through the fear where you couldn’t commit to the liquid plan.
