Juice Fasting for Weight Loss; Benefits, Consequences and Risks

Summarising the pros and cons of juice fasting. Mainly focused on people, who are fasting on several occasions except for their juice and other specimens of liquid diet.

Juice fasting has become extremely popular these days and is both a weight-loss and a body cleanse diet. It is a diet where one only drinks fruit and vegetable juices and other clean liquids like water and tea.

Juice fasting is believed to help manage weight as it gives the digestive system a break, and makes it easier to absorb the nutrients present in the juices. Fruit and vegetable juices that are rich in vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients are considered essential for the body and helpful in the process of weight loss.
