Default Juicing Diet

Im considering starting the juicing diet like Joe Cross has undertaken on the show Fat Sick and Nearly Dead,

Has anyone else tried this diet? What was your experience and would you recommend it?

Im not thinking of long 30 day fast but more a 10 day fast where I get lots of nutrients as body has taken a vitamin/nutrient battering after being ill this last year so Im thinking a vitamin boost would do me good.

the joe cross movie was inspirational to me on so many levels! I had already reached the breaking point where I knew my life was heading for pain, sickness, paranoia and self loathing. I knew I had to ELIMINATE sugar and simple carbs from my diet...juicing was the first step in recovery from sugar/food binges for me. I love to juice . I love the experience of drinking an enormous over sized portion of all healthy sugar free home made juice and being satiated by the juice. So I vote yes! Starting a juice regiment is powerful!

I've replaced my morning McDonalds breakfast with a veggie/fruit smoothie. I'll see how it goes......

I don't understand this.

When you juice fruits and vegetables, what you're doing is taking all the sugar, water, and vitamins from the food, and leaving out all the fibre (the filling part). You're also almost completely eliminating fat and protein from your diet if you don't eat other food.

The sugar in fruit isn't any different from the sugar in plain old white sugar (a simple carb). So you haven't eliminated simple carbs at all if you're juicing - in fact, you're getting ALL your calories from simple carbs.

I'm not saying the diet is no good, or not beneficial; I'm sure all those vitamins are good for you. But it's no way to get rid of sugar cravings (unless "getting rid of" means "satisfying").

I'll add this link, although it's not a great reference (best I have on short notice)...

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/0...n_3497795.html

There are benefits to having fruit instead of white sugar, as noted... but a lot of those benefits (like reduction in insulin spikes) don't apply anymore once you start juicing your fruit, because the fibre has been taken out.

Anyway, like I said, I don't think juicing is bad for you. It's just not a way to cut sugar out of your diet.
