If you answered with mostly As, juices may be for you.
Fans of the juice cleanse are typically those who want to stop filling their bodies with junk food, and give themselves a quick boost. Many people try a juice detox or cleanse to “jump-start” their bodies and clear their systems of toxins. But research on the benefits of these programs is conflicting, and many in the medical community are skeptical of their value. Losing weight on such cleanses isn’t always sustainable, since the initial water weight lost usually comes back once dieters go back to eating solid food.
That being said, however, there are many people who like the way they feel after a juice cleanse, especially after a weekend of pigging out. Advocates say it’s good for busy, multi-tasking folks who want quick results. It’s ideal for someone who wants to rebound from an over-indulgent weekend–or two or three– as long as they keep in mind that when it comes to trying to lose weight and keep it off, there are really no short cuts.
