The Complete Idiot's Guide to Juice Fasting

About the Book
Juice fasting can be a powerful, transformative undertaking that does absolute wonders for the body. From detoxifying and cleansing, to weight loss, to increased energy and a reinvigorated digestive system, a juice fast can transform the body in a matter of weeks, or even days. However, maintaining a fast can also be a difficult undertaking without proper instruction and an understanding of the nutritional components of the fast — so clear guidance and recipes that satisfy the palate are essential to success. The authors of The Complete Idiot's Guide® to Juice Fasting take readers through a number of different fasts and help them choose the right fast to lose the pounds, cleanse their systems of undesirable waste and toxins, and be on their way to feeling renewed and recharged. The authors arm readers with over 75 fantastically delicious and powerful juice recipes that will not only give readers what they crave in taste, but will help them fully recognize the transformational benefits of the juice fast.

My Take on the Book
I have tried doing a juice fast in the past, but the juices never really tasted right which I think my my fault in trying to do it without proper instruction. In reading this book, the authors have done an amazing job at simply laying out the basics and more for individuals who not only want to do this right, but also who want to have some great recipes at their fingertips as well. I loved the section on the three-day juice fast and it has encouraged me to look at doing this in the near future. There are so many health benefits to doing this for yourself, and I now have the tools from this book to be able to do it right!
