I'm usually skeptical of any cleanse claims

I don't think it was brought up here in depth but I know I've seen that discussion on other juice cleanse threads. I totally agree with you, fwiw. Fruit juice is just the sugar without the fiber that makes our bodies actually take time to digest it.

Anyone here concerned about juicing/smoothies removing the fiber, and just spiking your blood sugars repeatedly?

Sounds like a great way to become a diabetic.I find fruit rather easy to eat in its natural state, and am pretty sure that liquefying them adds no nutritional benefit, while spiking blood sugars, and releasing Insulin in large quantities.

That toothpaste on a zit is a remedy that I used in my teens - I'm now 59. It really CAN work! Another one I used was putting a dab of perfume on it. They both dry them out.

I remember him doing some show on things that work, like toothpaste on a zit. I think he said it worked, a couple of shows later he was saying it was a myth.

I agree with others that Dr. Oz is not a reliable source of health information. It seems that he will say whatever he needs to say in order to get more viewers, thus more sponsors, thus more money. I think it's sad that someone who is a medical doctor uses his degree to give himself credibility and then uses this credibility to promote fad diets, fake cures and other pseudoscience just to make money for himself.

Tell your friend to do herself a favour and turn off Dr. Oz. He is a quack who gets paid to promote every latest fad diet/gimmick on the market. The Dr. Oz Show is the equivalent of infomercial.

A juicing cleanse is completely unnecessary (our bodies are quite capable of cleansing toxins themselves, in fact we have multiple organs that perform that very function). Any temporary diet will just cause you to gain the weight back once you stop the diet, that's why they're called yo-yo diets. Ingesting an obscene amount of carbs that are stripped of their fiber is *not* healthy. The fiber slows down digestion and allows them to be released slowly. Stripped of this they absorb quickly and cause insulin levels to spike. It is *always* healthier to eat your fruit and veg whole and accompanied with some healthy fat and lean protein.

Take your focus off the Marshmallow.

"Toning" is marketing muscles to women who are afraid if they pick up a barbell, they'll leave the gym looking like She-Hulk. It doesn't happen, what does happen is you get results. Lifting Barbie weights does nothing but waste time.

Give your friend this article to read on Dr. Oz: http://www.newyorker.com/reporting/2013/02/04/130204fa_fact_specter

See if her attitude changes. He's nothing more than a paid shill now.

MARCIEMCGOWAN, your example may cause your friend to eventually "see the light". Any alleged health promoting item, I mean ANY that includes the word "cleanse" is BOGUS. Cleanse is just another word for "please hand over your money".

Spark On!

Eliminate "I will try". Replace with "I will".
You are now ready to succeed.
Let's go.

There is absolutely no need to do ANY cleanse UNLESS your Dr has prescribed this for something like pre-gastro procedures. Our body does a remarkable job of cleansing itself!

Below is a link that will be helpful:
www.sparkpeople.com/resource/nutrition_art
icles.asp?id=1800


Make sure you go to Page 3 and read the paragraph titled "Will Juicing Cleanse or Detox My Body?"

You body needs many other nutrients than you get from this sort of thing.

Edited to add: Dr Oz may have been really good at one stage, but I think he has sold his soul to the highest bidder - he will recommend whatever to whoever if there is money in it!

My best friend is doing the Juice Cleanse. What is this and is it safe? She does and believes anything that Dr. Oz has to say. I don't watch him and I don't agree with everything that he has to say. What do you know about this and is it safe?

I keep telling her to check out Spark People and track her food intake and exercise here. No luck yet.
