Well to be honest, fasting doesn't really have a scientific benefit... Sure you will drop water weight, but it will actually make you more likely to binge later... But, if you can handle it I say go for it... But it sounds like you aren't eating anything... If you want a calorie deficit, I wouldn't go below 700...

Juice fasting is a terrible way to try to lose body fat. When you make juice, you remove the fiber and any nutrients it may contain depriving your digestive system of a satisfying meal. The best diets involve eating whole foods for obvious reasons. After all, we spent 100,000 years of evolution eating whole foods and no one has invented a better way to lose fat. Check out Scooby's video here --> http://www.youtube.com/user/scooby1961#p... He makes some excellent points about juicing and appetite satisfaction. Regarding your so-called "cleansing", detox dieting and cleansing is a myth. There is no diet which will cause your body to get rid of toxins, heavy metals, poisonous by-products from smoking, drugs, etc. Here's the truth about the detox diet myth. "'Cleansing' diets may be worthless" http://www.webmd.com/diet/features/detox... "A day on a detox diet program probably won't hurt you, but there's little point in following these restrictive diets - and they can do far more harm than good, says Michelle May, MD," http://www.medicinenet.com/script/main/a... "Detox diets are a waste of time and money, say scientists" http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/uk/article784402.ece You can find your own links debunking the detox diet myth just by Googling "detox diet myth". The way to detox is to stop ingesting toxins and let your body cleanse itself naturally. If you have, for example, THC in your blood from smoking pot, there is no food, no flush, no purge, no cleanse that will make it go away. Your body will catabolize or excrete it naturally given sufficient time. The best diet for all normal adults hasn’t changed. It is still a varied, balanced, nutritious, and properly apportioned diet of high quality foods. Good luck and good health!! ♠

You have to understand that eating too much one day and then hardly eating anything the next day are both bad for you. Eating too much for 1 day is actually the lesser of the two evils, because if you hardly eat for a day or even for a meal or two, your body thinks it's going to stay hungry for a very long time. True, your body will start to consume itself, but when you start eating more your body will replace the fat cells that it used up because fat is your body's emergency food source. That is why so many people gain weight back so fast when they do extreme diets to lose weight. Even if you try to lose weight by exercising, which is what you should do, you have to keep exercising to keep yourself thin. A trendy liquid diet won't last forever, and you will have to deal with the weight gain after your diet ends. As for how safe it is, if you are still getting your nutrients, you shouldn't be in danger, but it is also not the best for your body. I know it sounds really lame, but you really should ask your doctor for this. He/she is actually trained for these things, and will know a lot more about how your body works. I would trust my doctor more than a website by untrained individuals that are probably trying to sell you something. What you should do is eat less, but not like what you had today. That is way too less for your body to keep functioning. Keep up with the fruits and vegetables, but make sure you actually eat enough to have energy throughout the day. Liquid diets like that are NOT the way to KEEP the weight OFF, which is actually a lot harder than losing weight.

You are starving yourself. That's not good. Go to the frozen foods department. Get yourself some microwavable meals like lean cuisine or weight watchers. Eat these 3 times a day for a few weeks or longer if u like. You'll get your recommended daily allowances and your body will get use to portions recommended. Also u can always eat fruit and veggies; u don't have to starve out.

Similar answers to the other reply, you need to be having healthier diet by taking at least 1 portion carbo, 1 portion protein, 1 portion fruit and 1 portion vegs for each meal, do not go less, or it will burn your muscle and get fat in your body and makes you fatter.

Lawrie Originally Answered: I want to start on a 2 or 3 day fast, probably a juice one. What juices can I drink that are store bought? ?
Hi I'm a fairly healthy person and "walk my own talk" in the field of natural health, but let me tell you, I had to mentally prepare for the 40-day juice fast that my husband and I completed last summer. These are some of the things we learned from our research and by doing the fast. General Juicing Rules: • Drink freshly prepared juice and do not store the juice for over 24 hours. If you can’t drink it immediately, put it into a glass jar (filled to the top) and put a lid on it to prevent oxidation. Juice rapidly loses therapeutic and nutritional value during storage. • Raw fruits and vegetables are not always compatible when eaten together. Apples are the exception. You can also mix pears with Jicama. • Melons should be juiced by themselves. Making the entire meal melon is an option. • Avoid using pre-bottled or sweetened juices. All the live enzymes are inactivated when they are pasteurized. • Juices don’t stimulate acids to be released from the stomach, but orange and tomato juice are high in acids and you may want to mix these juices with other less acidic ones. • I’ve read that cucumbers may not be good to mix with other vegetables as they are in the melon family, but it seems to work fine for us. We do limit cucumber to less than 25% of the total volume however. • Don’t add more than 25% green juice to your vegetable juices (unless you have a barf bucket handy!) • Juicing Greens—you might want to do this in between harder vegetables, the juice sludges at the bottom and doesn’t pour out easily if you juice them first. For example, I juice a couple of carrots, then a bunch of parsley, then cram a couple more carrots in after the parsley to get the juicer moving again. • Dilute all fruit juice with water (one part juice to 2-4 parts water) and drink throughout the day. We’ve found that 2 cups fruit juice blended with ½ tray of ice cubes comes up to 4 cups—the perfect dilution and it’s frothy cold. • Vegetable juices need not be diluted. Tips for a Better Fast: • Your pre-fast diet should include several days of higher volumes of raw fruits and vegetables. You may also want to add the “Excelsior” drink to your diet ahead of time. See recipe below this section. • Get plenty of exercise outside is best to get that oxygen flowing. • Sunbathe if possible—10-20 minutes of direct sun per day. • Take hot and cold alternating showers or baths. • Sleep with a window open so that you can get lots of clean fresh air. • Use Enemas—A fast does not always help eliminate impacted waste materials from the colon, so plan a colon-cleansing regimen. Enemas can cleanse when taken once or twice a day. Fasting without the aid of enemas allows toxins in the colon to be reabsorbed. This can poison the body and the organs of elimination (particularly the kidneys) which become over-burdened and damaged. For complete instructions on how to take an enema, see the link in the resource box. • Avoid negative influences. Do not listen to terrified relatives and “friends” who will warn you that you will pass out at any moment and starve to death. Stop reading all the grim reaper parts of the newspaper and turn off the news. It will be there when you complete your fast. Focus on positive, wonderful thoughts and surround yourself with uplifting music, books, and movies. • Continue with normal activities, but minimize overly strenuous physical or mental work. • No coffee, soft drinks, cigarettes or anything else by mouth. Your health care supervisor may prescribe some nutritional supplements depending on your case. Many clients say this is the easiest way to quit smoking. • Do not chew gum while fasting. Avoid mints and hard candies. They promote the release of digestive enzymes and makes you really hungry. Following the fast, there is a loss of appetite for caffeine, nicotine, alcohol, sugar, and junk foods. • Cut back on some supplements and medications. If you are over 65 you will want to take your daily vitamins (if you are on them) during the fast. You will need to discuss this with your health care team as to which medications should be continued with a fast. Usually most medications and supplements are withdrawn during a fast, but exceptions occur—especially when they have to do with the endocrine system (e.g. Insulin, thyroid, heart medications, etc.) And even though juices provide lots of nutrients, some physicians recommend use of an abbreviated list of vitamins and minerals for elderly fasters. • If you are hypoglycemic, have someone supervise your fast. You may need to add a protein drink to your program or add some egg white powder to your juice. • If you wear dentures, keep them in during your fast so that your gums will not shrink. • Do take time out for naps if necessary. Fasting dips: A fasting dip occasionally happens during fasting as toxins are loosened and cleansed from the body, cell by cell, even within deep tissue. At certain times of
