With the new year just around the corner, those already prepared for Christmas may be beginning to think about what they want to do to improve their lives and bodies for the new year ahead once January the 1st rolls around. After the festive period’s indulgence, many people consider starting a detox diet a kick-start to their new year’s health and fitness plans. You can detox in lots of ways, with some people choosing things like brief fasting periods, others choosing to eat nothing but whole or raw foods for a few days, and some people instead opting to ‘detox’ their lives rather than their bodies by having a break from social media, the internet, or even technology as a whole!
However, a juice cleanse is one of the most popular ways thing to try if you want to start 2017 feeling your best.

Therefore, juices made from fresh, raw fruit and vegetables offer better nutritional power than those made from cooked or frozen ingredients. Equally, how the juice is made can also reduce the juice’s efficiency, as different processes break down the plant’s fiber matrix in different ways. Slow juices help to retain more of the goodness in the ingredients by breaking down the structures of the plants less violently. Always look for juices made from fresh, raw ingredients and slow fluids if you buy premade products or invest in a slow juicer.
You may want to choose largely fruit-based juices because you like the taste, but a juice detox needs high vegetable content, especially, which can give you a higher calorie content than you may want if you are trying to lose weight, and you need vitamin balance from a vegetable blend. Look for juices that use green vegetables, fruit, and other colorful vegetables, or experiment with your recipes to make great-tasting fruit and veg blends.
Have fun trying new juices, and enjoy a healthy start to 2017!
