The Best Detox Juice Recipe
Juice Fasting Diet

A juice fast is another type of detox diet plan that you can use. This is an extremely short-term detox diet that focuses on the use of fruit juice, raw vegetable juice and water. One of the primary benefits of this detox diet is that it is extremely high in antioxidants and vitamins. It should be noted that no solid food is eaten with this type of detox diet plan. As a result, it is important to understand that there are some people who should not use a juice detox plan. Here are some of the best detox juice recipes.

Such individuals include:
• Women who are pregnant or nursing
• People with low blood sugar, diabetes, eating disorders, liver disease, kidney disease, addictions,
malnutrition, anemia, underweight, infection, impaired immune function, low blood pressure, terminal
illness, cancer, ulcerative colitis, epilepsy or any other serious or chronic health condition
• Any individual who has just had a surgical procedure or who is about to have a surgical procedure

Also, if you are taking prescription medication you should make sure that you consult your health care professional before attempting a juice fasting diet due to the way in which a juice fasting diet can actually change the way in which prescription medications react.

You should also know that there may be possible side effects to using a juice fast diet. Some of the most common side effects related to this detox diet plan include:
• Tiredness
• Headaches
• Acne
• Bad breath
• Hypoglycemia
• Constipation

Other, more serious side effects which may occur include:
• Dizziness
• Fainting
• Low blood pressure
• Rapid weight loss
• Heart arrhythmias
• Diarrhea
• Vomiting

If you should notice any of these symptoms or other serious symptoms, be sure to contact your health care professional immediately.

Keep in mind that you should not follow a juice fast diet for a long period of time as this can result in nutritional deficiencies. This detox diet is only intended for a very short period of time. Typically, a juice fast ill only last for one to three days.

Also, while there are a variety of different juices that can be used in this fasting plan, you should not include grapefruit juice. This is particularly true if you are taking prescription medications due to the fact that the compounds in grapefruit can actually change the way in which prescription medications metabolize within the body. As with any detox diet, remember that it is a good idea to begin eliminating certain foods and beverages from your diet about a week before you actually plan to get started with the fast or the detox diet. This includes sugar, caffeine, nicotine and alcohol.

Types of Fruits and Vegetables

Some of the most common fruits and vegetables that can be juiced and sipped while doing the juice fast
• Apple
• Carrot
• Celery
• Pineapple
• Beet
• Spinach
• Cranberry

Generally, citrus fruit juices should be avoided with a juice fasting diet. When possible, it is always best to use organic vegetables and fruits for the best results with the juicing fast. If you are not able to obtain organic produce, try removing the skin from fruits and/or washing produce carefully before juicing. The best results will come from fruits and vegetables that have been freshly juiced, but if that is not possible, consider purchasing juice from a health food store. Ideally, it is best to focus on using a variety of fruits and vegetables for the juice fast rather than just concentrating on one or two fruits or vegetables.

As you juice fruits and vegetables, make sure that you avoid the pits of fruits such as cherries, apricots and peaches as well as apple seeds.

You should make a point to drink between 32 and 64 ounces of fruit and vegetable juice per day. Space the juice out throughout the day, sipping on it all during the day. Along with the fruit and vegetable juice, you should also make sure that you are drinking plenty of water as well. At a minimum, you should drink at least six glasses of water per day.

Breaking Your Juice Fast Diet

Once you have completed the juice fast, remember that you should not immediately return to eating solid foods. You should gradually introduce solid foods back into your diet to avoid digestive problems. For example, on the first day after you complete the juice fast, you might begin by adding in some solid pieces of fruit. On the second day, add in some vegetables that are non-starchy. On the third day, work your way back up to solid food with a salad and brown rice. On the fourth day, you might add in some eggs and yogurt. On the fifth day following your juice fast, include some poultry and/or fish. By day seven you should be able to work your way back up to your pre-fast meal plan.

      Hello Demi, I found your comment and thank you for visiting my sight. I feel in my experience that detox dieting or “clean eating” has been important for me because my personal weight loss has happened naturally through good eating practices and focusing on foods that provide energy and make you feel great and ultimately, you see the changes over time. Juice detoxification or “juicing” is short-term. This method, is not for everyone, especially for those people who are medication dependent. It is designed to cleanse the body of toxins more rapidly, but some people tend to return to the diet routine they are use to. If you choose this method you really want to stay closer to home. “Clean eating”, using foods that have detoxification properties is of a long-term daily routine in which you incorporate healthy foods in your diet more on a long-term basis and then perhaps choosing to juice every once in a while, if juicing does not create medical harm.

    I really like to drink fresh juices and your recipe combinations seems so good. I will surely try this recipes. Thumbs up!

      Thanks for visiting the site Timothy. Yes, the juices are great. Personally, I don’t always go on a three day fast because I like the benefit of working all of my recipes into my diet routine. Sometimes, I like to use the juices as an in between meal until I am ready to have a meal with more substance. So, I may incorporate one of the juice varieties with breakfast or lunch, and then have more of a solid-based dinner. This website is about creating choices so that people don’t feel stuck or trapped in any one particular way of detox dieting, but rather are able to build on clean eating based on individual choices that work with one’s own body makeup.
