Go Easy On The Juice
“I usually tell my clients to avoid pure juice cleanses,” say Poon,”I love adding cold-pressed vegetable juice to almost any eating regimen, especially cleanses, but juice-only cleanses are problematic for a few reasons. For one thing, they’re hard to complete. And they don’t include fiber, which is crucial for toxin elimination through the digestive system. Fruit juices also contain a lot of sugar,” says Poon, “which can cause inflammation. Cold-pressed vegetable juices, especially those made from greens, are a better choice. Invest in an inexpensive juicer and make your own from your organic vegetables and greens for a fresher and less-costly alternative that also avoids plastic bottles.”Print
