“When I tried a juice cleanse, in the first three days I got into 2 (minor) car accidents. I felt all loopy and disconnected without food. Experts on juicing say this feeling passes, and that if I had stuck it out for a few more days, I would have felt more centered. ”

If you’ve not  jumped aboard the juicing craze and are wondering what all the hype about, RMD gets to the bottom of the blender and breaks down the truths versus hype of the juicing trend.

We see juice bars almost outnumbering weed dispensaries in Los Angeles,  California. This worries me about the competency of my fellow drivers on the road. When I tried a juice cleanse, in the first three days I got into 2 (minor) car accidents. I felt all loopy and disconnected without food. Experts on juicing say this feeling passes, and that if I had stuck it out for a few more days, I would have felt more centered. But basketball practice had to be driven to and those groceries don’t get themselves, so my attempt at a full juice cleanse was short lived. Much to the delight of my insurance company.

The idea of a juice cleanse is an interesting phenomenon stemming from the idea of some kind of atonement for our sins. It has become a bit of a cultural obsession that demands a sacrifice in the form of liquid absolution for our liver as payment for holidays spent binging on fatty foods and liquor.

Ideally, a juice cleanse doesn’t have to be in the form of a new year’s resolution or punishment but rather a nice opportunity to reboot the system. Most cleanses recommend that you eliminate sugar, alcohol, coffee and gluten the week prior. Many companies offer an easy to follow plan to help you get the necessary calories, nutrition and protein intake to not make you a menace on the road.

Otherwise, supplementing your diet with a cold pressed juice for breakfast ups your intake of greens and vitamins and a yummy and portable on the go breakfast.  It is a great way to sneak in some of those things that might sit untouched on the plate, but when whipped up in a juicer with some berries or apples, disappears into little bellies.
