The juice diet is one of the most effective ways to naturally detoxify the body from harmful toxins that weigh the body down and cause disease. All that is consumed on this diet is freshly squeezed fruit and vegetable juices. The juice is low in fiber, but high in vitamins and minerals, which not only purge out the toxins, but help to restore nutrients. This makes the body strong and healthy.
Even though this diet may be hard on the body, there are many benefits that make the juice diet right for just about anyone, especially those suffering from the following:
The juice diet is the quickest way to lose excess weight. Depending on how many pounds you need to lose, you could lose up to a pound or more a day. The first couple of days you may lose more because you are losing water weight. But after 3 days your body will begin to lose excess fat cells.
Because no solid food is consumed during this time the metabolism slows down, which means that you will not require as much food after the diet is completed. Therefore, it is very important that you refrain from consuming excess foods or junk foods after the diet in order to keep the weight off.
Weak Immune System
A weak immune system can cause you to become sick with the cold, fever, and flu more frequently. You may also suffer from allergies, chronic fatigue or be prone to infections. The juice diet will help to strengthen the immune system so that you can overcome and prevent disease by cleaning out and giving the digestive system a rest–as this is where 80 percent of your immune system is located.
Those who have fewer than 3 bowel movements per week may want to consider doing the juice diet for at least 3 days. Since the colon and other eliminating organs will not have to focus on new foods to eliminate, they can concentrate on eliminating the buildup and get the bowels moving again.
After the juice diet is done, it is very important to continue with a healthy diet of lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, as well as plenty of water. This will prevent constipation from reoccurring.
Body odor is simply caused by toxins in the body. The juice helps to wash them out at a deep cellular level so that you can reduce and even eliminate the odor. During the fast you may find that your body odor actually increases, and this is simply because more toxins are leaving the body. Once you complete the diet, the offensive odor will disappear.
The juice diet is right for anyone who wants to prevent disease and look and feel their best. It is safe and can be done as often as needed or desired. But, if you have never done the juice diet before, you may not be able to do it for longer than a day or two, as your body will detox too rapidly. You should always listen to your body and do the diet accordingly.
