A vegetable Juice Fast is primarily a process of detoxification of our body, but the weight loss that accompanies this detoxification process is a pleasant treat for someone who wants to shed off some extra fat storage. Depending on how long do you stay on the fast the weight loss can be very significant. A 3 day vegetable juice fast resulted in a loss of 10 Lbs for me, and the results were pretty constant when my friends and some family members tried the fast. For someone planning to do a 40 day Vegetable Juice Fast, expecting to lose between 30-40Lbs, should be very reasonable.
Before I say anything else, I want to tell you that a Vegetable Juice Fast is by far the best thing you can do to your body. It is not a way of starving your body or anything. The basis of this diet is to consume a diet that does not require your body to put an effort to digest (Vegetable Juices are considered pre-digested foods), resulting in more energy than your body needs, which your body will use to cleanse itself. All organs start the detoxification process right away - Lungs, Liver, Heart, Kidneys ... everything. So the longer you stay on the diet, the more toxins will be removed from your body, and you will shed more weight.
Though, for some people juice fast may be a tedious work, but remember health is supreme to all other constraints. In fact, some people do not like the taste of vegetable drinks, but they should tolerate such situation for a hale and hearty body. Fresh juices are enriched with essential minerals and vitamins. They have inbuilt capacity to detoxify our body in presence of these natural vitamins and minerals.
The most important part of vegetable juice fast is that you have to consume "only" fresh juice, daily. And, fresh juice contains essential enzymes and phytochemicals, (storage or refrigeration of juice destroys its essential components). During your juice fast, intake of fresh juice invigorates your body’s internal organs and soothes the nervous system. This is prerequisite of healthy mind and body.
