All About Juicing
Juicing is another way of consuming fruits and vegetables that provide the essential vitamins, antioxidants and phytonutrients the body needs daily. With this diet, you are expected to substitute 3 of your meals (more or less) for a mixture of fruit and vegetable juice. By drinking your meals, you consume more fruit and vegetables than you may ever get to eat at any one time, and give your digestive system a rest.
Juicing has been taken to another level – a trend brandished all over the internet and magazines advising people of its numerous benefits, especially with regards to weight loss and detoxification.
This low-calorie diet is unsustainable long term, and the downside of consuming only juice is worse than its assumed benefits. The human body is not designed to function off juice alone. Your body will react to the loss of essential fats, nutrients, proteins, fiber and vitamins it needs to grow and develop, and this deficiency may lead to health conditions if left unchecked.
