Peace Be Unto You,
When you are fasting particularly when doing a juice fast, you will always use natural fruits and vegetables.
The only sugar that you will be consuming will be natural unless you want to add honey, or natural
stevia, etc....You don't want to use any juice that is not 100% juice as this would be unhealthy. Also,
is your body ready for a fast? If your current health is ok--both physical, mental, spiritual- as fasting
will help in these areas as well as others. Make sure that you're getting proper nutrients and stay
hydrated. Remember as you detox that your body is cleansing itself in many ways. Make sure that
your juices that you consume supply your proper nutrients.
Also, before going on a juice fast, it might be necessary to make some dietary changes that can
accomodate you while you are on your fast whether it be a juice fast, or that of raw foods. It takes
time to get your body off of meats, sugars, fatty foods,etc... This takes time. You don't want to
make yourself sick. Take some small steps. Watch and make sure that you get enough calories.
If I can further help please let me know.
