There is no escaping the juice detoxes at this time of year, if you're not on one yourself, someone at work will be or you will be bombarded with Facebook posts and adverts telling you all kinds of un-educated bullshiz.
Most tend to follow the rule of a couple of very low calorie juices/ shakes (packed full of sugar and all sorts of chemicals), a few magic tablets and sometimes if your lucky you will get to indulge in some form of very low calorie meal. Do this for any where between 3-14 days and Bobs your Uncle you've lost a load of weight. This is nothing to do with your body detoxing and purely down to putting yourself in an extreme, and dangerous, caloric deficit. Extremely low carbohydrate, almost zero fats. And if protein is included it tends to be in power form or poor quality source.
Nevertheless, I can see why so many people fall into the trap of these magic potions. The results SOUND amazing. They're really not. They are short term results followed by long term disasters.
- Yes scale weight goes down
- Yes people claim they feel amazing
- Yes they are a massive waste of money.
- The weight you lose isn't fat. Mainly body fluids
- You will put the weight back on plus a few pounds due to metabolism being shot
- Your liver and kidney do a bloody good job of detoxing the body IF you fuel them with enough calories and the right nutrients (2 shakes, a tablet and lettuce leaf don't cut it)
So to round it up, I want you to ask yourself a simple question.
Why do so many of the juicers have to repeat these detoxes time and time again? If they were all they are cracked up to be would you have to put yourself through it 2 or 3 times a year?
Nope probably not...
DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY!!
Instead, invest that money into someone who knows what they are talking about and will get you long term results just as impressive of those stupid shakes.
