Juice cleanse - June 7th 2012, 07:26 PM

Everyone knows what that is right? Basically it is where you make our own juice and you ONLY drink that. I have found some good recipes that promise some good effects on my skin/weight/iron what do you guys think of it? Is it healthy? Have you tried it?

I wouldn't necessarily say it's bad but if you do it you'd need to be careful. Some questions I think need to be asked, such as how long are you thinking of restricting to just liquids? Obviously doing it for an extended period of time is unsafe. Also, if you think you have any sensitivity to developing an eating disorder it's best to steer clear of any type of fasting because that could trigger it. (so basically if you have low self-esteem, perfectionism, control-issues, etc. I would strongly advise against this) I've never tried it but I know of people who've done it. I think the main thing here is that if you do it, you need to pay close attention to your body. If you feel any adverse effects then it's time to stop the cleanse and eat something. I don't know if you're allowed vitamins during the cleanse but if so it would be good if you took some. Anyway, that's just my opinion. (Granted I have an ED so my view of what's safe may be distorted.)

I agree with Emily, I don't really like the sound of it, but that's more because I'm prone to restricting pretty badly. I would have thought that it would be healthier to try eating all natural products, or cut out additives or something as a cleanse, not restrict to just juice. Might be alright over a short period of time though. If you did it for very long you wouldn't get any protein or important things like that.

Yeah I was thinking maybe 3 days at the most but if nothing else I can go back to eating. Eating disorders though? I maybe a good candidate, but I have a good system who will not let me develop me

I would strongly suggest seeing a doctor to discuss this before embarking on any sort of fast or cleanse - your doctor can let you know what you need, and how long it's safe to do for, as things like this vary with everyone, and what's safe for one person may not be safe for another.

That being said, I know a small group of people (3) who last year did a 7 day fast where they were only allowed liquids. They were doing it for spiritual reasons though, not for health reasons, and all were in good mental and physical condition at the time.

Re: Juice cleanse - June 12th 2012, 04:38 AM

I would like to start out by saying that right now I'm going through nutritional therapy for Crohn's disease that requires me to go on an all liquid diet. However instead of juice I'm on a specific formula.

Before you do this you should consult with your doctor or a dietitian first to make a specific plan for yourself. You need to make sure that you're getting an appropriate amount of calories and vitamins for yourself.

Next up, if you decide to do this, it won't be as easy as you may think. Take it from somebody who's been doing this for 25 days, if you go long term with it you probably will get cravings and they will not be pleasant. All liquids can also make social events a bit awkward merely because people ask you why you're not eating and there's obviously food surrounding you.

I'm certainly not trying to convince you not to do this, I'm just saying to think long and hard about it first because it is not an easy thing to do.

May I also add before I end this comment that you will have to pee A LOT, so keep that in mind when making a decision; especially if you have a job or are going through some sort of schooling at this point.
