Many health-conscious individuals have turned to juice fasting as a way to stay healthy. These people are using the popular trend as a way to lose unwanted body fat.
Unfortunately, if people think it works they will try it regardless of whether it is actually a healthy practice or good for them. The trend is perpetuated by certain celebrities who maintain that they have lost large amounts of weight just by juice fasting for a week. Companies who are trying to sell you the juice diet may publish dramatic before and after photographs that are designed to convince people to try the diet.
Juice fasting is also being hailed as a medical wonder for helping the body with different types of ailments or illnesses. This hype is easily swallowed up by those who are desperate for something that works after medication has failed them.
Although quite surely a misguided faith in the belief that going on a fast for up to a week, drinking only juice, can “cure” your ailments, it can still somehow be a driving force to do it. Medical research has yet to prove such claims, however there are individuals who actually do report an improvement in their general health.
One way in which the juice fast reports to help people lose weight is by helping them to feel full so they eat less. The juice is often consumed along with great quantities of water. Making sure you are taking the right kind of juice is essential for effective treatment if you are looking to eliminate accumulated toxins in your body. Of course, steer clear of juices that contain high amounts of sugar or you will sabotage all your hard work by putting on more fat.
Juice fasting also presents an uncomfortable side effect. People often begin to feel or get constipated, due to their system not getting enough fiber.
Stomach acid production can increase, thereby causing heartburn, upset stomach, nausea, and even acid reflux. Heartburn, in some instances, can even get so bad that it keeps people from their normal sleep pattern.
Popular juices that are most often used in juice fasting are carrot juice, apple juice, and wheatgrass as well as cabbage and tomato juices. The amount of juice as well as the type of juice depends on individual needs.
