Juice cleanses are all the rage right now, and it’s something that I’ve been contemplating trying out. I’m a vegetarian, and I love fruits and vegetables. So trying this seems like a no-brainer for me, but is it really healthy?
Juice cleanses vary, but the basic idea is that instead of consuming solid food, you drink varied juices for each meal with the goal of cleansing your body of toxins and rejuvenating your system. The juices themselves have a variety of ingredients, antioxidants and vitamins that are definitely very good for you. But can your body handle a liquid diet long term? Will you still have the energy to work, exercise, spend time with friends, or any of the things you like to do? That’s where the concern comes in.
What is your verdict? Have you tried a juice cleanse and loved or hated it, or do you think they’re just a trend?
