  • I love these videos I was expecting short, blow off videos for the every day posts BUT THESE ARE ACTUAL VIDEOS AND I LOVE THEM IM IN LOVE I LOVE SEEING THESE NOTIFICATIONS

  • I tried doing this cleanse a couple of days ago… Couldn’t last a day… All i could think about is Food.. what I could be eating dumplings, paratha, noodles… ��

  • I would like to try something like this, 5 days doesn’t seem bad, maybe I would start with even less. I love coffee in the morning and drinking alcohol. And definitely junk foods both sweet and salty ��

  • I did this but I incorporated broth like soups with veggies and yoghurts. The chewing aspect helped me stretch this to 10 days. I didn’t just loose water weight but a bit of muscle as well. I don’t weigh myself but I measured, waist, bust and legs. And all around it was a big difference. I did for a friends wedding to fit into a dress as the tailor had made it a bit smaller. I would never do this for continuous period as I love food too much.

  • I did a juice fast for 3 days and It really wasn’t bad, last night I stopped drinking the the juice at 5 and didn’t feel hungry at all. I lost 6 pounds in 3 days, not really healthy but it’s a win for me.

  • I started keto in 215 but gave up pretty quickly. I am committed to at least 90 days no matter what this time and longer if I can make it thru. I am learning a lot from your videos. I have one side effect that is problematic both in 2015 and starting again this I time. It would be great to see a video on night sweats, I turn into a firey furnace, it’s really really bad. I can’t figure out what is happening, good or bad, and is there a way to control this so I can attain proper sleep through the night or adjust something that I could be doing wrong. Keep up the awesome videos!

  • My doctor had me do a juice cleanse for a week because I had surgery on my stomach and my fiancé is in the military and he made my favorite food and ate it in front of me and he drank coffee in front of me and I got so hangry I cried for 10 mins when he ordered from our favorite Chinese food but then when the week was over he was like “thank god you’re back to yourself” I was so emotional and angry so it drove him crazy

  • Tks for your video for young People its do easy to loose weight but all The People are watching your video have all age so some fruits have so much sugar and some vegetable are not recommend to all People. Tks for your video very funny tks.

  • I went on a juice diet for 7 days, hardest thing I ever did. Making that much fresh juice all the time was exhausting. Plus you need a good juicer. I had headaches and dizzy spells. Would not recommend

  • Weak excuse to quit short of your 5 day goal. Most of the juices you were drinking were loaded with sugar. You didnt do any juice fasting here. This is an uneducated hipster juice fast at best.

  • The ratio of vegetables to fruit is 80/20. Five days isn’t long enough. Bought juices aren’t advisable, its easier to make your own

  • It is detoxing u ur feeding ur self but since it’s so much vegetables in one juice ur giving ur body all the nutrients it needs and so while that’s happening it takes out all the toxins while ur drinking it in 15 mins detoxes u

  • The opinions expressed in this video are rather uninformed (particularly the implication that junk food vegans are exempt from needing detox). Anyone who wants to thoroughly understand juice cleansing/fasting should look at the videos of John Rose here on YouTube.

  • I’m not a doctor or a nutrition specialist but it is cleansing your body. When you only consume the juice your giving your body the time to flush out the “toxins” you consume with the processed foods you eat all of that gurgling is for sure a combo of hunger and gas but it’s also a sign of the cleansing. I’ll be doing a one day of the beginner’s cleanse (which is more fruity to give me an opportunity to see if I can handle a juice cleanse) I agree that in a sense it’s also a fast, BUT using the term fast isn’t smart for marketing. I’m going to finish watching the vid now but I wonder with the tummy troubles did you have toilet troubles as well? Odd question I know but I am a tad worried about it.

  • hey so while watching this I started to think the foggy headed -ish thing you experienced, probably a low fat intake maybe. I am all for juicing. I think if you ate a light plant based diet meal,once a day with nuts, avocados, dates ect … u would be super spot on. but that’s just an opinion. love the video girl <3

  • Thanks for your video. I must say though, I feel you did not juice long enough to really get a proper feel as to whether or not juicing helps with detoxing, continued energy levels etc. especially when cutting it short to 4 days instead of the actual 5 on top of that. Perhaps you may do another video if you choose to do a longer juice cleanse, even just for comparison. I would definitely watch it!: ) Thanks again nonetheless.

  • People make me laugh when they say they’re living off “just juice” they forget that what they are taking in is a HUGE amount of vitamins and nutrients, far more than they get from the crap they normally eat

  • I want to try this starting Saturday.. what do people recommend for homemade juices? I only know one juice place but it’s so expensive.. like $6-8 for a bottle

  • I didnt get the detoxing signs until day 5. Pretty much anyone raised in America non raw Vegan as a child would have PLENTY of digestional detoxing to do. Its not the animal product its the shedding of the plastic liner that develops from processed food is why I did it and trust me, once you get into the deeper realms of the detox you will actually notice the depletion of the plastic liner which works to block the body from being able to process much of any nutrients.

  • Would you consider trying this challenge with just celery juice in the mornings on an empty stomach? It might be different this time, more positive. Just a thought. I love your personality… you are funny and keep it real!

  • “cleansing” the body is not necessary, our bodies naturally cleanse themselves via bowel movements, sweating, breathing, the liver, etc. Even if youve eaten nothing but cakes and cookies for years, as soon as you start eating more veggies, fruits, etc, your body will naturally “cleanse” itself. Juice fasts like these are gimmicky and made to take advantage of those who are not professional nutritionists, but are concerned with their health.

  • I agree about salt. I used so much salt. I also learned that the salt I was eating was contributing to my MAJOR nightly leg cramps. I quit salting my food and amazingly my legs stopped cramping.

    Also, I want to juice fast, but I’m not sure where to start.

  • I went through a 7 day juice fast and felt this like layer of sugar around my teeth the minute I finished a juice. Did I do something wrong? I recorded what I drank here

  • So…..I started my juice “cleanse” on Monday before following you….
    Found this on Wednesday (today) and you are my new best friend..
    Brain fog and food cravings hard!!!! but…..I want to say “I tried” too!!

  • I’ll never understand people that “detox” or juice cleanse….at all. Your skin, lungs, kidneys, liver and colon do this all for you LOL

  • This is EXACTLY what happened to me. I almost killed my self with way too much juicing. I gave myself a fatty liver and now I’m on the keto diet. The only juicing I’m doing is green juice with lemons. I’m eating a small amount of fruit, like a half of grapefruit or a small handful of blueberries per day. Finally the disgusting belly fat is shrinking. After I broke my foot from a sprained ankle, I knew something was wrong. My body was turning to mush from way too much fructose. I’m so glad I discovered this keto diet, it’s saving my life.

  • I am in love with this chanel and Your work, this is SOMETHING I’VE BEEN LOOKING FOR A LONG TIME, DEFINITELY, not just for bio, for integreted whole development. At this point, regardless I watch since 4 days, I must say that I am very impressed and gratefull. You are connecting the dots from areas that I’ve sepparately digded into. VERY BIG THANK YOU!

  • Be a proxy-vegeterian. Only eat meat from herbivorous animals
    A joke. A vegan diet can be a good thing for a while. Eventually a blood work up from your doctor will show that ya need to eat some fat and protein.
    I know from experience. Maybe you have found a work around. I don’t mind eating fish/ sea foods and sometimes fowl/chicken etc. but mammals and some other critters I am bothered to kill or eat them. Hell, I won’t kill a snake in my garden. I catch it and take it to the deep woods (about 7 miles away) and let it go.

  • People need to understand that a detox is exactly that…. if you have ever detoxed from drugs, your body reacts the same way… she is addicted to salt and apparently caffeine. She was craving fake chicken nuggets. This detox is because most commonly bodies are not functioning on a hermit diet. We are scavengers. Nuts, berries, vegetable, grain. She was DETOXIFYING a toxic body.

  • I went on a juice cleanse and fainted while running in pe. I ended up having a concussion and when I finally woke up it was the end of the next day. So at least I had finished my juice cleanse:/

  • Juicing is stupid. It concentrates the sugar and acid and you throw the most important parts down the drain, namely the soluble and insoluble fibre.

  • They def can work. My mom had bad cervical cancer for 5 years. Everything everything would get so backed up n her kidneys would start to back up into her body and they would put her on hospice she would come home and we would do a juice cleaner with mostly anti inflamatories. She would always get better. Until the last time, but at that point the cancer was just everywhere.

  • Cleaning yourself out (Detoxing) is easy just drink water and not eat anything! Anything else is just calorie restriction even with juice or small amounts of fruit,veggies or meat. You don’t have to eat a bunch of vitamin and mineral deprived junk food for good tasting meals.
