A JUICE DIET CAN LEAD TO HARMFUL EFFECTS...YES, LOSS OF NUTRTION BUT ALSO DEHYDRATION....it may cause diarrhea, dizziness, fatigue, headaches, dry mouth just to name a few. Please re-think this
Know this...When your blood sugar levels drop due to insufficient nutrition....it can do more harm than good...drastic restriction of calories is not safe....please consult with your doctor.
A juice diet is not a permanent or magical cure ...The only "diet" that works is consistency!
P.S. I lost over 100 lbs. eating low carbs, lean healthy fats, resistant starches and lots of low carb fruits and lots of steamed veggies....nuts and seeds....it's easy to stay eating this way for the rest of my life.
I see you are new to Sparkpeople as of the day you gave this post. WELCOME!
I am not sure what you actually mean by "juice diet"---but this really is not the best approach for weight loss and it could be dangerous and not meet your nutritional needs.
Perhaps you can tell us how you plan to prepare the juice and other issues you have with trying to lose weight and we can help with a safer and more effective plan that will work for the rest of your life.

A wholesome juice daily with a balanced diet. Is a good idea. Drinking juice alone for 60 days. I cannot recommend that. You won't find a lot of support for such a diet on Spark.
My dad has lost 40 pounds. Since January what he did is instead of a candy bar in the afternoon. He eats carrots. If he wants something sweeter. He eats fresh or dried fruit.
My mom has lost 30 lbs. They have pretty much given up junk food snacks.
Eat what you like and if someone comments, eat them too
