Physiology of Juice

Hi Dolls! I would love to make an infographic on the physiology of a juice fast from the opposite perspective…you know, that it’s good. But I can’t find any physiological info on this. Do you have any suggestions?

Also, I’d love to hear your experiences with any of this. I only do bagel fasts, so I’m not a good source 😉

  1. there’s an interesting This American Life episode where a guy does a fast for 10-14 days (can’ remember) living on cabbage soup i think, in order to feel spiritual. it’s pretty interesting.

    1. As far as I can tell the argument is that juicing provides more nutrition because the nutrients are no longer bound up with the fiber of the vegetables and fruits and your body doesn’t have to work as hard to get to the nutrients. Your also consuming those things raw so you don’t lose any enzymes or other nutrients due to heat. Need that ruffage though so don’t juice everything. And who knows how many trace elements you may get from the pulp and fibers.

Tell Ali all about it!
