Fasting, Juicing, and Vinegar (Oct. 2012 Articles)

There is tons of advice out there about these three subjects. Fasting and juicing are big weight loss techniques, and vinegar is supposed to be a heal all. But are they? What are the truths? Can we do these on occasion, with good results, or can we get away with doing them for long periods of time without negative consequences? I plan on exploring these later this month, due to some questions posed to me from students, but I wanted to post a few articles here beforehand. Feel free to leave your own thoughts!

  1. I think moderation is the key word here for all of them. There’s nothing wrong with juicing — or fasting — as long as it doesn’t go overboard.

    With juicing, it tends to make you more … liquid, so some solids are needed. Also, depending on what you juice, you need to be aware of blood sugar factors.

    Fasting can get out of hand, if it becomes a starvation fast. Again, moderation, and realizing there are some foods you need to eat even when you fast.

    Haven’t ever done the vinegar thing so can’t comment.
