Last week I introduced you to raw juice fasting. We discussed preparing your mind and body, why raw juices and fasting are beneficial to your health, some things you might expect during your raw juicing journey as your body begins to clean and rid itself of accumulated toxins, and more.
“It is often the last key on the ring which opens the door” – Proverb Is Your Health Last on the List? I chose the above proverb because it truly resonated with me. Its words rang true as I reflected on life and health and searched my heart and soul for direction for this article. I realize that, for many people, juice fasting or converting to a raw food lifestyle is a last-ditch effort to rebuild their lives and improve the health they’ve taken for granted for way too long. Is that the situation you’re in?

“Instead of using medicine, rather, fast a day.”—Plutarch Tired of Juicing? Switch Up! If you’re ever in the midst of a juice fast and are either a) tired of cleaning, preparing, and juicing fruits and veggies or b) would like to go into a deeper cleanse for a few days, you can switch up! Just eliminate the juices and enjoy ionized alkaline water and herbal tea for a few days.
Success with Juices, No FastingIt’s quite interesting how many benefits you can get from juicing—without even fasting. Don’t take me wrong. I’m absolutely for fasting. I fast on water and herbal tea alone and I juice fast as well. But you don’t have to miss out on the nutrition raw juices provide simply because you misunderstand the concept and think you have to fast to reap the rewards. Drink your fresh, raw juices!
Whether you’re juice fasting or just want to incorporate more raw juices into your day-to-day lifestyle, here are some juice combinations you can use in the morning, at lunch, and/or in the evening.

We’ve looked at the pros and cons of juicing for weight loss, but what about weight gain? Yes, those of you who have struggled with losing weight might cringe or feel a tad bit jealous of those who strive to gain just a couple of pounds, who fantasize about gaining 10, even 20, pounds. But it’s a serious issue that affects many people.
You’re more excited than you’ve ever been before: You’ve embarked on a juice fast and you have so many visions and dreams of vibrant health, a long, active life, and glowing skin. You’ve researched and read everything you can on juice fasting and its benefits, until you’re sure this is the right step for you.
