Warning Before starting any fast or cleanse, be sure to consult your doctor, as some individuals should not fast with certain conditions or medications. Step 1: Prep your body Prep your body a few days in advance by cutting out cigarettes, alcohol, and caffeine. Reducing your intake of sugar, red meat, and dairy will make the transition to just juice easier. Step 2: Purchase a juicer Purchase a juicer; it's the best way to drink fresh, pure juice. If you don't want to buy a juicer, purchase unpasteurized juice from a health-food store. Step 3: Buy fruits and veggies Buy a wide variety of organic fruits and vegetables. Carrots, parsley, celery, apples, beets, tomatoes, kale, spinach, melons, and citrus fruits are all great choices. If organic produce isn't an option, be sure to scrub and peel your fruits and veggies before juicing. Step 4: Drink your juice Ideally, consume your juice immediately after juicing; if you must, store it in the fridge for no more than a day. Tip Different bodies need different amounts of juice, but plan to drink 5 to 6 16-ounce glasses of juice per day. Step 5: Drink water Be sure to drink at least 8 8-ounce glasses of water each day. Supplement your juice diet with vegetable broth and herbal teas. Tip If you're feeling stopped up, try a laxative tea. Step 6: Break the fast Break your fast slowly. Start with raw fruits and salads on the first day. Then add cooked vegetables, legumes, and whole grains like brown rice over the next two days before gradually resuming a normal diet. Bingeing immediately after your fast can make you feel sick and reverse weight-loss. Step 7: Keep it up Keep juicing after your fast is over. It's a great way to add fruits and vegetables to your diet. Did You Know? The philosopher Plato was a proponent of fasting; he believed it strengthened him mentally and physically.
