Why Juice Cleanses are Bad for You

With summer luring around the corner and temperatures rising, it’s all about getting “the perfect beach body” in as little time as possible.


Many people opt for juice cleanse to get rid of any excess weight to get in shape for their summer vacation. During such a juice cleanse (which can last from a few days up to a week), several juices are consumed throughout the day in a specific order. No “real,” solid food is permitted. Although widely popular (the juice cleanse market was estimated to make over $100 million in 2015) for its quick weight loss success, juice cleanses are only effective in the short-term and aren’t magic potions to “detox” your body. Here are 3 main reasons why you should not opt for a juice cleanse this summer to get “the perfect beach body.”


Detox Myth: Drinking green or fruit juices will not “detox” your body. This is a marketing trick making you want to buy and try out a juice cleanse. If you really want to reset your body, simply eating healthy and organic ingredients is the true “detox diet.” If you want to know what the “de” in detox actually stands for, read our blog here.


Feeling Weak? During a juice cleanse, some people might be feeling dizzy and lightheaded due to the lack of protein, fats, sodium, and simply calories in general.The best diet is a balanced diet and juice cleanses simply don’t offer a balanced nutritious make-up.


Long-Term Success: One reason why juice cleanses are so widely popular is because of their short term weight loss. However, if you want to lose the weight for good and keep it off in the long-term, only a lifestyle change will give you those wanted results. Weight loss can be difficult, and if you believe that those juice magic potions will do the hard work for you, you are wrong.
