I would like to caution you that if you're doing a raw juice fast, to please not do many fruit juices. I believe that for some eating whole fruit would not contribute to candida or brain fog etc, but that juicing a lot of fruits with your veggies, definitely will be adding too much sugar.
I've done a handful of raw juice fasts and ALWAYS included fruits in the juice. I did help many things, but never helped with my rosacea, which would flare up on and off even during a fast. This was just adding sugary fuel to the fire of my candida, and I believe rosacea to be candida induced. So for my upcoming juice and smoothie fast, I plan on beginning with very low fruit, but ending the fast with nothing sweet and I wish I would not have included the fruits in my juices in the past. I just think this was too much sugar, without the benefit of fiber and would not do it again.
I also agree with the previous poster about incorporating good EFA's. However it is my belief that in the early part of a fast - atleast 5 - 7 days - to go with no fat. But that after that, you SHOULD incorporate EFA's.....
Just my thoughts!
