Can I Live on Juice Forever!

by Kathy

Hello All:

I love fasting and juicing. I also realize the only reason I stop juicing and start eating solid food is usually due to emotional problems.

I get upset, and start stuffing myself.

anyway, I'm getting better. But I'd like to know if it's possible to live on juice forever. Is there any literature?

I've seen a lot on fasting (1 week, longer), but not anything on life-long treatment.

would you please suggest?

Thank you!

Kathy

ps. Also, how does one address the infamous "are you getting enough protein issue" :) A doctor (natural path) suggested I take at least 1 egg in each meal (raw egg), along with green juice.

What do you guys think?

Real Health NEW

Yes. The thought of living a long and healthy life on juices is very existing. I lived for 6 months on juice and triple straind veg. Broth. My diet is now strictly what comes from the soil and almond milk. I just started a juice and vegessential vegan powder sup. 9 days ago. No solid food. I've been working at this since 1995. On and off juice fasts, that I find it to be very easy to do.

skip the eggs NEW

I know this is an old post but I wanted to point out the flaw in your Dr's nutrition advice. Raw egg whites bind to and hence prevent the absorption of biotin (AKA as vit H or vit b7). So eating them with every meal is not a good idea.

Good luck
by: Brandon

I just did my first 60 day juice fast and love the results. I feel better, think sharper, lost excess weight while building muscle and have a better complexion. I'm aiming to make a plan that will let me juice fast in the warmer months from May to October so I can eat local organic produce and a diet that consists of leafy greens, beans, fish and supplemental vitamins during the remaining months. I wish you good luck!

my juicing technique
by: Anonymous

I am about to start a juicing regimen by consuming 10 8oz cups of fruit and vegetable juice mix a day. The reason I like to devide my food or in this case juice into many small seperate meals is because i get more energy like this trough out the day.I ALSO THINK IT IS IMPORTANT TO CONSUME A LOT OF WATER (2 LITERS DAILY) IN ORDER FOR YOUR SYSTEM TO ABSORB THE NUTRIENTS

What kind of fast are you doing?
by: JenM


Hi there! What kind of fast are you doing???

I got started on Juicefeasting.com which gives you directions on how to fast for 92 days straight on juicing. I am on day 17.

Isn't it funny that our doctors have no information regarding nutrition? I know many doctors and they only get 7 hours of nutrition education and then they can also take an "optional" course.

Nutritionally uncooked spinach is 49% protein (and all leafy greens contain between 30-60% protein) so if you are juicing greens then you are getting plenty of protein.

Plus according to the recommended amount of protein we should take in is 2.5% (I learned this in my nutrition course I'm currently taking).

Just juice a big bunch of spinach and greens along with carrots and apples and berries and you will have all the nutrition you need.

Plus add in your good fats/oils (hemp seed oil, flax seed oil which both have all the omega's you need for good brain function) and you'll be set.

Check out that sight... it is super helpful.

I agree. With a few additions, juice fasting could be a life long journey. I personally also think that raw organic eggs are good for you and I've enjoyed putting the yolk in my juice.

Just make sure you're doing it for the right reasons... through only juicing I'd think you'd be giving up a lot socially.

Maybe too much?

You can with a few additions
by: Anonymous


I heard of a person who juice fasted 3 years to protest the Vietnam War. I also did 3 fasts adding up to 100 days within 120 days.

At that time, the thought arose that I could live solely on juicing.

I believe that if you add some essential oils,B-complex, and some Spirulina which is 50 percent protein, you could maintain superior health.

The is also a lot of lies about gurus living only on air that is a scam.
