Why do people experience incredible
weight loss on a juice fast?
Before that question can be
answered, we have to understand what ‘juice fasting’ is about.
Juice fasting is about abstaining
from solid food, for a period of time, while supplying your body with the most
nutritious drinks on this planet. By providing essential vitamins and minerals,
the juice can actually jump-start the body’s fat-burning mechanisms. One glass
of freshly-made fruit or vegetable juice provides you with the equivalent
vitamins, minerals, enzymes, amino acids and chlorophyll you would get by eating
several pounds of raw fruits and vegetables.
Most of us have heard how thousands
are losing up to 10 pounds in 2 days on the best-selling Hollywood 48-Hour
Miracle Diet in which you simply juice fast on bottled (dead) juice for 2
days. Well, juice fasting is a healthier version of the Hollywood Diet because
you can fast longer than 2 days while supplying your body with live enzymes and
nutrient-rich fresh fruit and vegetable juices.
Dr. Shelton, a great advocate of
fasting, wrote "The weight lost by overweight patients in the early
days of a fast is astounding. I have seen losses of five and six pounds a day
for the first few days. A woman who fasted in the Health School in January and
February of 1950 lost twenty-five pounds in the first two weeks.
