While juicing is a great way to jump start a weight loss program, it’s not a long term solution to bad habits. However, a proper juice cleanse CAN be effective if you consider the following:

Keep It Quick.

Steer clear of a juice cleanse that requires more than 5 days. Extreme juicing can be counterproductive as it may deprive your body of nutrients that are important for your good health. Instead, shoot for a cleanse between 3-5 days. This is just enough time to combine nutrient dense foods with a simpler eating plan that includes healthful, filing foods and can help you lose up to 5 pounds in a week.
