Wow. That is really very wonderful. I am glad you have found a lifestyle that works for you. :)

Even if it is for only two weeks?

Two weeks is a long time though for your body to not receive any real fiber. Although, juices have their own cleansing properties, I would imagine that the incorporation of smoothies and maybe even whole fruits too. 

Good luck.

Actually, here, we do not promote juicing, juice cleanses, or juice fasting.  What some people think is detox is actually adverse side affects of the juicing.  If someone, especially atheletes like marathon runners needs an extra calorie source, then juices are a backup plan only to be eaten after the 2500/3000 calories of whole foods are consumed.  

Side effects and health problems include:

Juicing Not Recommended

Some of our members have had troubles with juicing such as indigestion, sour and or acidic stomach, acid reflux,  blood sugar spikes, dizziness, brain fog, diarrhea, blood in feces, constipation, and inability to absorb and assimilate calories, vitamins and minerals in spite of high calorie count. The high sugar and acid content of some juices may give some people teeth pain and oral issues such as sores and bleeding gums. 

Juicing removes the fiber from the fruits n veggies. 

 

Importance of Fiber on Any Diet

The soluble fiber in fruit and some vegetables may gel up inside the intestine.  This fiber slows down digestion and regulates assimilation of nutrients as well as water absorption.  

Diets high in animal products may have little or no fiber, and diets high in grain products that have insoluble fiber actually may scrape and irritate the intestines like shards of glass and do not digest well. 

Fruits are high in soluble fiber which also causes easy elimination of feces just like toothpaste being squeezed from a tube.  This soluble fiber attracts water and turns to gel in the intestines.  (Ref: Soluble vs Insoluble Fiber,  Soluble and Insoluble Fiber)

Without this fiber, nutrients, calories, and carbohydrates can pass right through the system without being digested and assimilated and possibly lead to unwanted weight loss and or malnutrition.

It is better to train the digestive system right from the beginning to properly chew, digest, and assimilate fruits and leafy greens.  If you are having a difficult time with calories, then smoothies might be a compromise.  With smoothies, the whole fruits and greens are blended and some of the fiber is still intact.

From our Banana Wagon Tour.

 

So if someone is having some digestive issues and or health problems, we highly recommend just doing a banana island or a fruit island of your favorite fruit for about 3-10 days.  This works for most people.  After that, eat simple meals, but a rainbow of fruits over a period of time, and eat about 1/2-2 pounds of lettuce greens a day.
