Why you shouldn’t go on juice cleanse – according to Runners World that is. Personally as you can imagine I don’t agree with this however it is good two always read both sides of the coin.

Here are the points below from the article and also my views:
You won’t lose weight long-term: Loosing weight is a bonus on a properly designed juice cleanse and typically within a week you will loose about 5-7 pounds. Normally a whole system reboot is carried out because you may be suffering ailments which you are hoping for the body to help heal itself by feeding it with natural fruit and vegtable juices, you will also find that after a week your taste buds are reset so you will not be craving that doughnut, chocolate bar or beer etc You have a different approach to your lifestyle afterwards so weight loss can easily be sustained, there are hundreds of stories out there showing incredible sustained weightloss and radical life changes.
You’ll feel rubbish: YEP……totally agree, but for the first few days only.
You’ll lose muscle: No not if it is done correctly. In a carefully controlled plan you have albeit a reduced calorie intake but you get your daily protein from plants. For example Spirulina, this is a complete protein in that it has all the amino acids which are essential in building muscle. Whilst fats can come from avocados and also UDO’s Choice Oil.
Your not actually detoxing yourself: “Our bodies were designed to detox themselves,” says Harris-Pincus. “Our liver and kidneys already do a great job of removing waste and toxins from our bodies.” True…..and the detox word has been used to death and can mislead people, in essence we have crammed too much crap into our diets so the organs have been overworked and overloaded…..foods that weren’t designed to be consumed such as fast foods, foods which are manmade…..you get the picture.
