I'd like to have a go at a fast to help clear out toxins and lose some weight what's best green smoothies or juice and how much do I need to drink per day.

both are great. you can do either one... depends on what you are wanting to achieve.
both will detox. juice moreso than smoothies
only juice will slow down your digestion.
both are super nutritious and great to do... so what do you prefer?
drink as much as you want... no limitations!

You seem to know lots about all this so I have a question for you, or anyone else who would like to answer.
I'm on day 9 of the master cleanse (if i remember you don't like that one:) and will go the full ten, but want to continue to a possible 40 days.
I want to switch it to green smoothies. I don't have a juicer and I don't really want to get one..so my options are to stay on the mc or go to green smoothies. I have one stretch mark from my son and I was reading that extended water fasts/ mc could help that due to the "healing" mode, will I still get this benefit from the green smoothie? Also and more importantly I have been enjoying the 1lb a day weight loss on the mc, can I expect anything close to that on green smoothies? I don't plan to use bananas or avocado for this reason. I'm not really a fan of lots of fruit in mine, so it will be mainly veggies.
Thanks in advance for your thoughts!

first off you can do a juice fast with a blender, you just strain your juices with a nut mylk bag. lots of people fast with a blender.
second... i have no idea how much weight you'll release, everyone is different. i've released weight on water fasts, juice fasts, juice feasts (more than 4 litres of juice a day) and on green smoothie feasts as well... so you'll have to try it to find out.
i don't know about the stretch mark question... sorry. i do know however that i have as many stretch marks now as i did before i went raw and started fasting...
