Dear banana friends
Im writing a juice fast article for a danish magazine and need to put in the very best juice recipes.
Whats your favorite?
And please share your experience on a juicefast?
Im in to detoxing all the time on 80/10/10, but I find that a juicefast helps speed things up. I believe that the body gets to rest when its not eating fiber, even though fiber is ofcause fantastic.
Whats your thougts on that?
Do you know if Dr. Doug Graham supports juicefasting?
Speaker and coach
no. only citrus. if you read the book you know this ;)
get your fiber it transports antioxidants - essential
When we juice however, not only do we remove the fiber which means that the sugars get through to the uptake point far more rapidly, but we typically consume the food much more quickly. How long would it take you to eat a pound of carrot? How long would it take you to drink a big result of a pound of carrot juice? And would you eat a pound of carrot? Highly unlikely? But do use a pound of carrot to make juice? Sure! And so not only does the sugar get to the uptake sites faster, it's a lot more sugar when we juice. We do run the risk of sugar metabolic disorders. So, we run into fiber problems from lack of it and then we run into sugar problems from lack of the fibers as well. It's a compound issue that literally goes in the face of the concept of whole foods.
Thank you so much for this. It soulds right and Im also a fiber fan:) I also watch a lot of Dan MacDonalds videos and hes very much into juicing as a healing modality. And in the movie "Fat, sick and nearly dead" Joe Cros explains why you need to take the fiber out if the body has to think that there is a fasting going on. But Im open to learn, thats why I ask.
there is a reason he is fat sick and nearly dead again i hear ;) and why we call what dan does/did Manorexia
