Comments Off on Does the Prune Juice Diet Work


Many people are either approaching doctors or scouring the Internet for information on a new craze called the Prune Juice Diet. People want to lose weight quickly and want to gain more energy in the process. Many people have heard about how amazing a juice fast is and how it can help to achieve the above two objectives. But, in reality there is a wealth of difference between a juice fast and a prune juice fast.

I’m not the only one, many doctors also understand that a juice fasting diet is one of the best ways to increase energy. Furthermore, it is a great way to melt away the fat and end up with a body that functions perfectly. Not only that, but it’s by far the quickest way that one can achieve this kinda of radiance. That said, it is highly recommended that people do not use prune juice to fast. In fact, I strongly advise against this practice. I’ll tell you why.

Prune juice can be beneficial to ones health in small amounts. It’s not just an old wives tale that prune juice has laxative effects, it does. But it’s much easier and healthier to address ‘prevention’ of constipation, then it is to allow a situation to unfold where the “going gets tough”, so tough that laxatives or foods with laxative properties, like prune juice are needed.

Laxatives are known to stimulate the process of peristalsis. Peristalsis is a series of contractions that take place in the digestive tract. When food is present, the contractions are responsible for moving the waste through so that it is excreted from the body. Fasting on prune juice, however, would hinder this process, as there would be no waste that would need to be eliminated. This would make the contractions very painful and they could even become quite dangerous. Juice fasts, however, are great for purposes of energizing the digestive tract. It is also very good for cleaning the body both internally and externally. This makes a juice fast the perfect option for rapidly shedding pounds and regaining your inner glow of vitality.

When fasting on a juice fast, it is wise to use as many different juices as possible. Colorful juices are rich in enzymes and contain loads of minerals and vitamins all of whom work wonders in creating the optimal internal environment for cleansing. The vitamins and minerals will see to it that any excess waste is discharged from the body just as it should be and you will be left feeling energized and lighter by the day. So, trade in your prune juice and give juice fasting a try. The only thing you have to lose is excess weight and you have only your health to gain!
