Is A Juice Cleanse Right For You?

A juice cleanse, or a short-term fast that severely restricts calories and labels many solid foods as “unhealthy,” is becoming increasingly popular. While juice cleanses may cause initial weight loss due to calorie restriction, they will lead to overall weight gain once a person resumes a full, healthful diet. Additionally, research shows that a juice cleanse may pose certain health risks, including fatigue, headaches, cravings, and dizziness.[0] Furthermore, they lack essential dietary fiber, making them an unsustainable and potentially dangerous choice.

Fortunately, there are plenty of healthy alternatives to juice cleansing. Many people have found success in gradually changing their diet before the cleanse and focusing on whole fruits and vegetables as part of their meals and snacks.[1] Additionally, drinking adequate fluids can help reduce dehydration, which can lead to fatigue, and can help flush out toxins and improve overall health.[2] Furthermore, consuming plant-based proteins, healthy fats and dietary fiber can help reduce cravings and keep blood sugar from spiking.

For those who still want to experience the benefits of a juice cleanse, there are several options available. For instance, Suja Juice offers a variety of options including a 3-day or 5-day juice cleanse with 15 or 30 juices, respectively. Other juice-focused companies also offer juice cleanses that include almond milks and other nut milks.

No matter the length of the juice cleanse, it’s important to note that liquid-only diets are dangerous and should only be consumed under medical supervision.[3] Additionally, moderate exercise such as stretching and yoga can help relax the body and mind and is strongly recommended.[4] Finally, it’s important to focus on consuming whole fruits and vegetables as part of your meals and snacks, or blending them to make a smoothie, as a healthier and more sustainable alternative to juice cleansing.[3]
