Introduction:

This eating plan is a ‘fast’ or a ‘cleanse’ which is designed as a quick catalyst to assist with weight loss or improved health. The juice diet should be done as a 6 day cleanse and only for longer under medical supervision. If you are on any medication please consult your doctor and do this eating plan under their supervision. It will be likely over time that much of your medication can be reduced or even removed but this must only be done under medical advisement. Remember that the fruit component of these juices are high in natural sugar and also have had the fiber removed which is not desirable in the long term. The fruit exists to give some nutrition and help balance the taste of the vegetable juice which can be bitter for some. The reason for this ‘fast’ is to get the high quantity of nutrients from the vegetables going straight into your system without the need for major digestion of anything else. This will result in a major stimulation of your immune system so use more green vegetables at every opportunity.

Before you start, read the recipes and work out a shopping list. You will be likely to need to shop almost every day for fresh fruit and vegetables.

The following points are important:

  • Stock your refrigerator with all ingredients before starting. Good preparation is crucial.
  • Try and ensure you have at least 500mL of juice every meal. More is good.
  • You are to have no other food during the fast.
  • The fast also has no allowance for alcohol, tea or coffee. If you are thirsty have only water. If you need a tea have a peppermint or chamomile tea or just squeeze the juice from half a lemon into boiling water.
  • Lunch juices should be prepared in the morning and taken to work.
  • You will need a blender and a vegetable juicer.
  • Try and have a good 5 hour cleanse between each meal. This is when your body is detoxing and your cells are cleansing.
