Allowing too many calories can fill you up without supplying the nutrients your body needs to function properly. When done for ten days, the empty-calorie intake could send the body into starvation mode, meaning it will try to conserve calories by slowing down your metabolism, resulting in difficulties losing weight in the long term. When people exclude their favorite foods from their diet for a period, they tend to reward themselves afterward, which can often lead to overeating. The vast majority of calories taken off during the juicing diet are mostly water weight, and will probably be gained once your everyday eating habits resume.
In other words, you cannot simply drink your way to health and your dream weight. ■
