Juice cleanse - yay nay? If so, which one/brand?

Nay. You have a liver, one of the best cleansing systems in the world. If you want to get rid of toxins, you gotta attack the diet. Cut out alcohol, sugary foods, etc.

1. Juice cleanse is not for weight loss as it turns your body into starvation mode and contradict efforts to lose weight
2. Juicing can lead to lethargy in those first few days
3. It can help you figure out “trigger” foods as you reintroduce foods back in your diet if you have digestive issues
4. Those who are not in good health shouldn’t do them
5. Juicing should (and is recommend) be done with more of a veggie based diet to ensure appropriate calorie and vitamin intake from natural food sources. Don’t necessarily cut out every stitch of food
6. You can get hangry / hungry (as with any restrictive diet) during those days
7. Ensure adequate protein consumption
8. Success stories are anecdotal and not enough research to prove any positive effects

So I back to my point that for ME, I had positive effects from the digestive “reset” by changing what I put in my gullet and going cold turkey for a few days. It was never about weight loss for me or thinking it will cleanse my liver or kidneys or anything that. It’s not like I’m doing the Master Cleanse or saying that’s even a remotely good idea.

Merry Christmas 🎄

I’ll also say I don’t eat a ton of processed food, caffeine, sugar drinks, fatty foods, but my digestive system was unhappy and it needed a restart of sorts to make things better. And it worked for ME.

And these cleanses tend to be very expensive if you buy pre-made juices from brands. Much better off investing in a vitamix/blendtec and getting into the habit of making healthy juices or smoothies vs. investing in a week long cleanse.

I’ve done a week of juicing more as a digestive gut reset. They do make you feel better less... blah. On some days I did add a midday snack but only if it was an ingredient in one of the juices.

For convenience, I just did Pressed Juciery and bought for 3 days at a time. Key is when you are done to reintroduce certain cleaner foods gradually and eliminate others (no dairy, no processed foods, etc.)

If you aren’t as experienced with juicing be careful with the program you pick and best not to go extreme.

Like this isn’t a thing...no hate but a juice cleanse is BS. Just drink water, eat veggies and exercise. One week of juices doesn't do shit except make you crave bad stuff after you finish the week.

Maybe for you D2, but not for me. Like I said it’s not “cleanse “ my system but rebalance the gut. And sometimes you do have to take out everything and start again with the good stuff.

Everybody is different.

BCG1 - it doesn't work like that lol and no you are not different - you are just like everybody else. Have you read any research about cleanses and their effectiveness?

Merry Christmas! I am glad you had a positive experience but like you mentioned your experience is anecdotal. You can do a gut reset by eating cleaner and adding some probiotic as well. I do not want OP to have exaggerated expectations if he/she decides to do a juice cleanse. I don't think there is any research that shows the benefit of these cleanses vs. eating cleaner. During the clean period, most people shed water weight combined with the benefits of fasting and chalk it up to a magical cleanse. OP is much better off picking up the habit of eating more healthy foods which is a sustainable choice to a healthier and “cleaner” lifestyle than a cleanse.
