Juice fasting for weight loss has achieved some degree of popularity. Here are dome things to bear in mind if you wish to try it.
If you are going to try juice fasting for weight loss, you better be in contact with your physician. Any time you are messing with your body’s functioning, you are running risks. Fasting can jump start a program of re-programming eating habits. A fast filled with freshly juiced vegetables and fruits can help supply the crucial nutrients your body requires and keep body electrolytes in better balance than a fast of water and a bit of lemon juice. Fresh juice that includes a variety of ingredients is the key. Keep the vegetables at a ratio of 3 parts vegetables to 1 part fruit (maybe 2 to 1, until you get used to the taste.) Avoid some of the strongest flavors–garlic, ginger, and kale–at least at the beginning. They can cause nausea.
In fact, fasting usually cause some nausea and looseness of the bowels. It can dangerously dehydrate your body (seems odd given you are consuming lots of liquid, but it is documented.) If your electrolytes get badly out of balance, juice fasting for weight loss may be fatal! Will the results be worth the danger? Unfortunately, there is no solid evidence that this kind of weight loss lasts long term.
This is not to discourage a juicing diet. There is a significant difference between a fast and juicing for weight loss. A fast is, well, expected to be fast.
