ABC's of Juice Fasting

We all have seen the infomercials of once over weight individuals standing with their before and after pictures, exclaiming how great they feel, much more focus and tons of energy due to "juice fasting". You can't turn on the television without someone selling a high powered blender or juicer promising all kinds of miracle health benefits and drastic weight loss, but do they work for loosing weight?


"Juice fasting" has been around for hundreds of years and used by many different cultures for different reasons.

This is not about starving your self, but to blend a variety of fruits and vegetables and have them as a juice to satisfy your daily intake. Each juice contains a variety of ingredients and is designed to replace a meal.
