Juice cleanse

Has anyone tried a 3 day juice cleanse on this board? If so, any recommended prepared juices to purchase in Austin? If you have thoughts on taste of juices and program specifications pls share! Thx!!

  1. If by "juice" you mean "bbq, tacos, and Korean food, washed down with lots of beer" then I'm definitely on a pretty mindblowing cleanse that has really picked up steam over the last few months.

      1. I don't recommend juice cleanses, because they are essentially just nutritionless days. Think about that one for a second. Your Western lifestyle might allow you a juice cleanse or two in your lifetime, but that does not mean it's actually healthy.

        However, if you're still insisting, Daily Juice has fresh juices with numerous organic ingredients and also offers yummy smoothies and green juices--and, if you're insisting, many juice cleanse program "juices". Think Master Cleanse. Or, good god, go eat a healthy meal at a local restaurant. Fasting in any form for longer than a day is a very bad idea.

          Why Nattomi? Why is juice fasting a bad idea? For thousands of years people have been fasting.We in the west can have a horribly rich diet between fastfood and just trying to eat on a busy schedual. Fasting/cleansing is like a body "reset". Talk to me Nattomi, what do you know that I dont know?

            Perhaps that nearly all actual medical doctors say there's really no such thing as "detox-ing" via fasting/cleansing, and that when you do so you're just depriving yourself of nutrients--when what you really need to do is eat less of the "horribly rich" stuff and more vegetables and lean proteins on a regular, consistent basis.

              i'm so fascinated by how personally people are taking other peoples' cleanses and fasts.

                It's certainly fascinating subject matter!
