THE NOVEMBER JUICE FAST

 

Juice fasting has become a popular way for people to detoxify their body and lose weight, provided they do it in a healthy way and for a limited time. I am suggesting 3 days, any longer I think can become difficult for people and you may find yourself over tired and lacking energy (the opposite of what you should be feeling!) Beyond 3 days, you can extend a juice diet, which means that most of your meals consist of juice, but a small meal at lunchtime and dinner time are introduced, often rich in protein, and in the form of a soup or stew. Generally speaking, 3 days is the accepted limit for a pure juice fast, but depending on your present health condition, slightly longer juice fasts may be acceptable. In this case we are going to do 3x days starting next Monday.

Juice fasting consists of cutting out all solid food for a period of time, replacing your entire food intake with various fruit and vegetable juices. Since low sugar fruits and vegetables contain high concentrations of nutrients and antioxidants, low levels of calories, and almost no fat, this can be an excellent way to get your health back on track and flood your body with essential nutrients. In most cases, a juice fast also means eliminating all of the dietary fibre from your diet, as a juicer will prevent any of those fibres from being included in the juice.
