First thing’s first: Juicing is a “detox” diet that can last from a few days to several weeks in which a person consumes only fruit and vegetable liquids to obtain nutrition while otherwise abstaining from eating food. Many people swear by improvements to their health, mood, and appearance. The scientific community, however, is less than enthusiastic—many scientists, dietitians, and doctors regard detox diets as less effective than fasting with water, and, therefore, a waste of money. That said, if you’re going to do one anyway, we recommend consulting with your doctor—or at the very least going along with an “official” program. Simply drinking any ol’ concoction from anywhere around town is not a good idea.
