Since last week’s episode on Juicing a lot of people have asked me … “Do I just drink juice and not eat?” … so today I want to make it clear for everyone.
The answer (for us) is “NO“! I am aware there are people and times when juice fasting is highly beneficial … but NOT in our circumstances.
Why is that?
Well, dad is 81 years old and very frail. He needs his body mass for his mobility which is already compromised with Parkinsons. He cannot afford to lose weight or strength.
So … How do you take the juice to receive the same benefits that you do when you juice fast?
The answer to this is simple but you need to be diligent.
Dad completed drinking his juice at least 30 minutes before eating his meals and at least 2 hours after finishing his previous meal. In this way he avoided the juice being mixed with his food and going through his digestive system.
By drinking it 30 minutes prior to his meals and 2 hours after his previous meal it was able to go straight into his blood system … just as is done when juice fasting. Dad is a big eater and needs the calories from his food intake for strength and was still able to consume his normal (large) daily food requirements. In this way he received the benefits of both the juice and the food.
