    I don't think there would be enough nutrients, you would have to add something like whey protein to the juice and not sure that would be enough.

    Why?

    The NS plan works when followed as designed.

    Well, since you asked....

    I think it is nuts! Especially for that long.

    It'll mess up your metabolism. And you won't be getting in any protein or healthy fats. Very low in fiber. And lots of sugar.

    Stick with NS!

    I cannot imagine why you would do a juice fast. It will not jumpstart your weightloss. As a matter of fact, it may stall your weightloss because after an initial loss due to fasting (i.e. starving), you will gain weight the moment you add "real" food to your day.

    Guess you got your answer on what we think about it, huh?

    It's completely unnecessary, dangerous and foolish!

    Severely slashing calories will result in weight loss, but not the right kind. You will lose water, some fat, and muscle loss. The muscle loss will ultimately decrease your metabolism and your body will need fewer calories to survive. Don't cut calories below 1,200 per day! People who lose weight too quickly, tend to pack it on with more fat and less muscle which lowers their metabolism and calorie needs.

    The reality of the situation is that if you want to lose weight you have to eat right and exercise…period!

    That was one of my first thoughts, because I feel I haven't had my fruit if I drink it instead of eat it ... feel cheated out of it. Fruit is almost as hard for me to resist as chocolate, though. Given a choice at Mimi's Café where it comes with the breakfast I order, I do chose the Tomato Juice, because it is a treat for me. I don't buy it for the house because of the high sodium (blood pressure goes up just reading the can).

    Yes, as the others have posted, doesn't sound like a wise, healthy decision, and NS does work if you follow the program as written; and the OP does appear to be off to a good start!







    COMPARE AND DESPAIR
    Don't compare yourself to others along your weight loss journey. Every person is
    different and will encounter completely individual challenges and rates of weight loss.

    If you fall off the wagon, there is always time to climb back on.

    Sure, go ahead if you want to suffer from headaches, exhaustion and extreme hunger for the next 7 to 10 days.

    You're only going to regain most of the weight when you start eating again.
