View Full Version : Losing Weight on Juice- Famine State
09-29-2005, 10:59 AM
Hello all- I am interested in starting a juice fast to lose a little bit of weight and cleanse. Actually, but total body weight is alright, but I would like to lose some body fat. I know I need to exercise/weight lift a little bit more (now I do about 3 times/week). Would a juice fast be the right thing to do? I have read that going below your basic metabolic need for calories (I think mine is about 1000 calories) will cause your body to go into famine state and actually keeps the weight on. Is this true? Does this happen after just one day of doing so or after a week, 10 days, etc.? I think/hope I will be able to get at least 1200 calories worth of juice per day. Is this a good amount? Any tips? I will have to buy the fresh juice at a health lunch place, I have watched them juice it and I know it's fresh. Having a desk job in the middle of the city does not make it easy to do these things. I don't have any place for a blender or juicer at work. Anyway, hope someone has some insight into this. Thanks in advance!

I too am wondering the same thing. Seems like there's ocnflicting infromation out there. I read that don't worry about calories and less will give your body more rest. If you find any information could you let me in on it? Thanks

Ah yes, accurate info....where to look.
Natural Hygiene literature and practitioners are my suggestions. The subjects (fasting included) are so broad in health and individual needs so varied that a one size fits all approach seems totally inadequate. It's cool to look around at different approaches and systems of thought. Some are more metaphysical in nature, meaning that the correct physiologic diagnosis is attributed to things other than scientific concepts. Physiology is a young science in comparison to many world wide systems that developed before the invention of the microscope and resultant methodology. Hygiene is based on science. The science of health.
