A complete juice diet is not the ideal diet to adopt for weight loss or a cleanse.

Juicing removes most fibers and even some nutrients while retaining all the sugar content. Moreover, when on a juice diet your protein intake will be deficient and thus you will have the tendency to lose a lot of muscle mass, which in turns shuts down your metabolism.

It’s very important to note that this diet is not sustainable for a long period of time and could result in a doubled weight gain once you stop it.

If a detox diet is what you are aiming for, just remember your best detox is your liver and you don’t need a detox diet to clean your body. Should you still wish to go a juice only diet, make sure you do so for no more than 3 days at a time or incorporate at least 1 high protein meal per day.
