There is no shortage of quick fix health products, nor is the consumer base lacking. And the most popular health and weight loss recharge is, by far, the juice cleanse.
Despite its growing popularity, many dieticians and doctors are skeptical of both the short and long term health benefits of this trend. Dr. Mark Hyman author of The Blood Sugar Solution, weighed in on the pros and cons of juice cleanses.
“It’s a great way for people to reboot if they’re eating junk and processed food,” said Dr. Hyman who believes juice cleanses allow you to feel good immediately but warns consumers that they are not sustainable in the long term.
“The danger is if you restrict your calories to the juicing you’re going to end up slowing your metabolism down, your body thinks you’re starving,” said Dr. Hyman and warns that your metabolism will rebound which could cause a post cleanse weight gain.
