Hi,
Thanks for sharing. Balanced diet is important for healthy life.Juice cleanse advocates believe toxins from the food supply, air and water pollution, household chemicals and other modern products build up in your cells. A juice cleanse is an increasingly common cleanse and infrequently includes a weight loss part.
Keep sharing....

The previous posters have given you some great advice. Stick with a healthy, balanced diet and you'll be much better off in the long run.

Juicing is all very well and good in certain circumstances, but as a general rule, you are far better off to eat the fruit - that way you get ALL of the benefits of the fruit.

Why are you wanting to "juice fast?" If it is as a cleansing diet, then it is a waste of money, and that is money that you mention you don't have. Your body cleanses automatically - that is what your various organs, etc. are for.

Juice fasting is not supported or endorsed by Sparkpeople and most of the members here. It is an unhealthy fad that has no basis in the scientific reality about how your body burns fat and loses weight.

You will not find support for that choice here.

Instead, why not consider just having a healthy balanced diet? Any diet that recommends cutting out entire food groups is probably not a very healthy one.

I am wanting to try juice fasting, but I don't know the best things out there to try. Now, I know that logically fresh fruits and veggies juiced will be best, and I'd prefer that because I love raw fruits and veggies. But, I am in a bad position in that I live in a rural area and have no transportation for now...as well as a limited budget for a while...very limited. I have had to limit my shopping to a nearby store that sells some groceries but is very much not a grocery store and has no produce. However, if there is a good and nutritious juice out there that I could order online or something...that might be a good second choice. Any ideas, tips or comments on juice fasting?
