That’s why we’re going to dive deeper and find out all you need to know about this diet fad.


While Juice cleanses may sound like an easy way to shed those pounds you’ve been working to take off, it’s best to do some research and educate yourself before deciding that it’s the best way to go. Depending on how you want to look at it, juice cleanses are great ways to detox the body or overpriced ways to pump your body full of sugar.


Let’s first talk about what a juice cleanse is. This is a type of diet that involves consuming only juices from vegetables and fruits in an attempt to lose weight and even detoxify the body according to Medical News Today. Not only that but the juices that you’re drinking are separated from the pulp. This is where a lot of the disagreements begin.


There are many people that say juice cleanses take away the most important parts of the fruits and vegetables, which is all of the pulp and fiber it contains. With that being said, a juice cleanse involves you drinking juices from 2-10 days so that your body can eliminate any toxins it has.
