View Full Version : Juice cleansing/fasting: any fruits/veggies to avoid?
05-27-2006, 04:31 PM
I'm getting ready to start a juice cleanse for a few days. I've done some searches but not quite found what I'm looking for. I started to do a water fast, and the first day when I was off it was fine. Day 2 I had to work and I was so weak and drained, I could barely get through my day. I ended up eating a pear before leaving work because I wasn't sure I'd make it through my hour drive. SO, I think i'm going to do a juice cleanse, or maybe go back and forth, water on off days, juice on work days. I only work 3 days a week, and my schedule changes. I'm taking my mom to florida for her mother's day present June 9-14. I'm hoping to slim down a little bit and clear up my skin before then so I won't feel so self conscious.
Anyhoo, I'm wondering if there are some things I should NOT juice while doing this cleanse. Or can I juice anything? Are there some fruits/veggies that are recommended to juice on a cleanse?
Thank you in advance for your input!

I'd like to know the answers to this question too. Hopefully somebody will come and answer soon!

Ok. It's decided! I'm going to juice anything that fits in the Breville. It's one of those wide-chute ones, you know.

just saw your thread.
Hmh, there's a good website with tons of recipes and guides plus eBooks - Fasting for Freedom. Really good. It's here: http://www.freedomyou.com/level%202/Fasting%20Page%20Guide.htm
I personally juice whatever I like. I found out that some juices I like better in the morning (e.g. cucumber, celery, thai asparagus, green apple) and some more in the afternoon (e.g. fruity ones like pineapple, mango, orange, lemon and such). There are things I personally wouldn't juice, because I don't like them.
I am on a 7 day juicefast too, today is day 6 - going really well, feeling great. Planning on another juicefast sometime after the June Raw Food Challenge, which I plan to join.
Good luck with the fast!

I'm starting a juice fast on Tuesday. I'm going to do it for seven days. I went to Whole Foods yesterday to stock up on things to juice. I'm really excited for this because I know I'm going to really get cleaned out and lose some more weight. I've lost 17 pounds in the past six weeks.
