Day Juice Fast: Is Juicing Good For You

1. What is a

Day Juice Fast?

A day juice fast is when you consume only juices or smoothies for one whole day. If you are not sure what a juice means then it means any liquid with no added sugar, artificial sweeteners, preservatives or other additives. So if you drink water without adding anything else, then your juice would be the same thing. However, there are some juices which contain fruits and vegetables. These juices have different benefits than regular liquids such as water.

2. Why do

I need to juice for a whole day?

You might think that you don’t need to worry about losing weight because you already eat healthy foods all the time, but if you want to stay fit then it’s better to get rid of extra calories from food rather than just eating them. Drinking juices instead of eating will give you a good source of energy while you’re exercising. Also, drinking juice helps keep your body hydrated and nourishes the cells.

3. How long does it take to lose weight on a day juice fast?

It depends on many factors such as your diet, exercise routine, age, gender and health condition. For example, people who are on a diet and exercise regularly can lose up to 2 pounds in a day while someone with a busy job and no time for exercise can lose up to 1.3 pounds in a day.

4. Will

I feel weak if I only drink juice?

No, drinking juice actually gives you extra energy while burning away the calories from food. It is better to burn calories rather than store them because it gives you a burst of energy.

5. What are the side effects of a day juice fast?

You can experience nausea, diarrhea, and dizziness if you drink too much juice with a low water content. Also, make sure to eat at least five pieces of fruits or vegetables for each 16-ounce glass of juice. Drink at least one full glass of water for each glass of juice that you have.
