On November 14th, be sure to tune in to our live event, where I will share what juice I am drinking at what time of the day, share my vitals (blood sugar levels, blood pressure). I will post a series of videos all day and share any changes to my vitals and how I feel all day.
Subscribe to our youtube channel so that you will get updates when new videos are published. That way, you will have all the recipes upfront, and you can be prepared to undertake a juice feasting journey along with me on November 14th.
What is Juice Feasting?
Juice Feasting involves consuming only fresh raw vegetables and fruit juices for a certain period of time to cleanse the body of toxins and expedite the regeneration and repair of body tissue. Juice feasting can be done for 24 hours, 48 hours, 72 hours, or beyond. I would recommend starting with a juice feast for a day/24 hours before embarking upon a longer juice feast.
Juice feasting provides the body with many vital nutrients that can be easily assimilated while reducing the burden on the digestive system. Juicing by the process of 'separation' is considered most beneficial. Juice feasting helps to remove toxins and other waste from the body. These juices also help the body to expedite the regeneration and repair of body tissue.
Research has proven that phytonutrients in vegetable juices destroy cancer cells, stabilize blood sugar and, improve blood pressure, improve cholesterol levels, eliminate symptoms of heart disease, drop excess body weight, and macronutrients in these juices support the body’s crucial organs: liver, pancreas, heart brain, kidneys, bladder and more.
In a nutshell, juice feasting is done to:
Cleanse. Rebuild, Rehydrate. Alkalize. Reduce Inflammation.
How to Juice?
Primarily there are two juicing methods: using a Centrifugal juicer or using a Masticating juicer.
Centrifugal juicer chops your fruits and vegetables up into fine pieces while spinning the bits at very high speed, separating the juice from the pulp. These high-speed machines do generate heat, which affects the enzymes and nutrients in the juice.
Masticating juicer, also called cold press juicer, crushes the fruits and vegetables to extract the juice. Cold pressing is often thought to be superior to centrifugal juicing because — as the name cold press implies — no heat is produced in the process, which may protect more of the heat-sensitive nutrients.
If you don't have a masticating juicer and don't want to spend on one yet, that is totally fine. Regardless of how you choose to make your juice, juicing can effectively increase your nutrient intake from fruits and vegetables. It is better to get started with the juice feasting journey rather than waiting for that juicer.
Is juice Feasting for diabetic patients?
While juices are a concentrated source of beneficial nutrients, they’re also a concentrated source of carbs in the form of sugar. Eating a high-fiber diet can slow the rate of absorption of sugar from your digestive tract, reducing total blood sugar response. Because a large portion of the fiber is removed from fruits and vegetables in the juicing process, the sugars in these foods are consumed and absorbed more quickly, leading to rapid blood sugar spikes IF you are not careful about what juices you consume.
With the advent of the internet and google search, you can find almost anything on the internet. You can easily find dozens, if not hundreds, of juicing recipes.
But is that juice recipe the right one if you have diabetes? What fruits can you include in your juices if you have diabetes? What is the right quantify of juice you should consume? And which juice should you consume at what time of the day?
Those questions bring me to the topic of our juice feasting program on World Diabetes Day, which is on November 14th. As part of this program, leading up to November 14th, I will give you all the recipes for juices that are appropriate for diabetic patients. What is the right quantity of these juices, and when should you consume them?
Let's not let Diabetes bring us down; let's take the fight to diabetes.
Join me on November 14th to embark upon a journey for a fight against diabetes. See you there.
