One thing you need to keep in mind when taking on any kind of fasting is your own safety. Be sure to listen to your body and if you do begin to feel unwell, stop fasting immediately. To ensure that your juices are low calorie, make sure to include lots of green vegetables with a touch of fruit juice to sweeten it and make it easier for you to drink. There are plenty of low calorie options that make the juice taste sweeter as well such as carrot, beetroot and bell peppers. Ensure that at least half of your juices are green vegetables and the others are added for taste and variety. Make sure to not over do the fruit juices as they are high in sugar making the calories higher and they will affect your natural sugar levels in your body as well. If you are going to put fruit in your juices, some good low calorie options are grapefruit, apples and berries. You can even use lemons and limes as well.
The most important thing to any type of fasting is that you can sustain it. Juice fasting is a great way to fast for longer, still get nutrition and lose weight quickly.
