View Full Version : Green Smoothie VS Juice Fast
02-10-2009, 02:23 AM
I'm going to do a fast, but I'm not sure if I should do the smoothie or the juice - or both at the same time?
Does it still count as a liquid/juice fast if I blend up things and eat them in a GS?
Thanks so much for your help!

When you consume only green smoothies, you are "feasting" rather than fasting, as you are still consuming whole foods and all the fiber they contain, thus your digestion never rests as it does in a true liquid fast.
Still phenomenally beneficial, green smoothie feasts are a great way to transition into and out of a fast.

I am doing both and feel amazing. Whatever works for YOUR body. EveryBODY is different.
I never did follow tradition...:p
depends on what kind of cleansing intensity you want. the juice fast would cleanse more intensely than the green smoothie due to no fiber that your body has to work on.
personally, i either just do water only or smoothie, hehe. i can't stand seeing the pulp go to waste as i do not currently compost or have a dehydrator to make snacks with the pulp.

Nice, thanks for the information everyone :)
I guess I'll do a juice (Fruit and Vegetable) fast, then come off of it by using green smoothies. How long should the transition be before I go back to solid raw food after the smoothies?
Does this look accurate?
#1. Juice Fasting 3 to 30 days
#2. Transition with green smoothies after the fast
#3. ??? How long should I stay on them until solid raw food again ???
