How To Go On A Juice Diet

Mar 10, 2008
Juice diets are an essential part of a healthy life. While in the early '70s and '80s juice diets were considered as an integral part of neuropathy, the advancement of alternative therapy enabled juice diets to take a prominent place in many physicians' prescriptions. Juice diets have also been used to naturally fend off diseases like cancer by making your body alkaline.

There are many reasons to go onto a juice diet. First of all, your body can digest liquids easier than solid foods. It is not only easy to drink a glassful of juice at a time; most of the juices get absorbed within 15 to 20 minutes of drinking them. However, juice diets should be done with the supervision of a doctor or nutrition expert because if done improperly nutritional deficiencies or adverse detoxification side effects could result.

Cleanse Your System With a Juice Diet

The most beneficial result of juice dieting is system cleansing. By going onto a juice diet, you can cleanse your different bodily organs like the lungs, liver, kidneys, and skin. Before you initiate your juice diet, you should abstain from different addictive substances and stimulants like drugs, caffeine, alcohol, tobacco, etc. They will only make the detoxification take longer and could cause withdrawal symptoms.

A juice diet will start detoxifying your body immediately by removing toxic and morbid substances. As these toxins are "stirred up" and removed from your body you may experience the following symptoms:
* Abdominal pain
* Diarrhea
* Weight loss
* Weakness
* Insomnia
* Fever
* Upset Stomach
* Headaches

Some of these symptoms are not so enjoyable, but remember that you are feeling them from the toxins. Don't take medication to suppress these side effects, they will pass. You reap the benefits of a juice diet about three days into it when the toxins are flushed from your body. At that point you will probably feel better than you ever have in your whole life.

What Fruits and Vegetables To Use, What Not To

Not all fruits and vegetables are ideal for preparing a juice diet. The following fruits and vegetables contain a high nutritional content, so they are perfect ingredients for preparing a healthy juice diet. Just remember it is also best if they are organic.

* Tomatoes
* Cucumbers
* Lemons
* Carrots
* Wheat Grass
* Acai
* Beets
* Celery
* Apples
* Watermelons
* Kale
* Cabbage
* grapes
* Sprouts
* Cranberries
* Pineapples
* Lettuce

You can make individual juice from the fruits and vegetables listed above or you can combine them. Some will taste great, others not so much, so experiment and find what you like. But remember they are all healthy so even if they don't taste the greatest you should still try to get them down. It should also be noted that potatoes, apricots, bananas, yams and cherries are usually not part of a healthy juice diet.

The Essential Reminders

When you are on this special type of diet, you need to drink the juice you make within three days of making it. Most fresh organic juice goes bad within four days.

Remember to do this diet with the supervision of a health care professional as it can lead to severe nutritional deficiency if done improperly. Children, pregnant women, or a breastfeeding mother are not be advised to go on this type of diet. Good luck on your journey towards health and wellness!
