Juice Fasts have become all the rage over the last couple of years. I’m occasionally asked for my opinion on these types of fasts and to be honest, I have never given them much thought. This may be because they are generally too extreme for most people I work with and, I just love food!
I certainly hadn’t researched juice fasts but my general opinion was that to truly detoxify, your body needs a range of nutrients that cannot be obtained from fruit and vegetable juice alone, such as amino acids from protein (for the production of glutathione, the mother of all antioxidants and critical for detoxification). Ultimately, I thought they were a passing fad.
