14 Day Diet Cranberry Juice

Is it safe to fast on diet cranberry juice or any other kind of diet juice for 14 days? I'm planning to do this, but the diet juices I'm referring to have 0 calories and I think they may have Splenda or some kind of fake sugar in it. I'm just scared that toxins from this can build up and something can go wrong? I didn't go buy some yet but last time it said it had some percentage of actual juice in it, but I'm not sure. What do you think?

The reason I plan to do this is because fasting on water alone is very uncomfortable for me, but I don't want calories. So I think diet juices with no calories would be better. Is this safe?

If you think about juice fasting, the best way to go about it is organic, freshly squeezed juice from different fruits, not to miss the multitude of vitamins and enzymes and other nutrients from the wonderful rainbow of fruits.

Splenda, aspartame, saccharine, etc are NO-NO's!!!

I would also make sure to dilute those juices as not to get diabetes at the end of the fast... I think the "right" dilution formula is 2/3 parts water and 1/3 part fruit juice.

I wholeheartedly agree with Mamahuana.. great wisdom there! I sometimes suggest the diluting of the juices to be done with carbonated water to help givng a "full" feeling.

But whenever there's taste involved, I refer to a diet, not a fast. And whethere the chewing is done by your teeth (fruit) or by a machine (juice) makes very little if any difference. Chewing might however give more satisfaction.. particularly if you "over-chew" your fruit, extracting all taste and texture sensation from it.

One immediate "bonus" of fasting is that the taste organs get a "holiday" so that when they return, they are much more sensitive. Having taste during a (zero calorie) fast, often "confuses" your brain into thinking you are eating, thus less tendency to mobilize and burn fat.

Yet we're all different and if for you a diet is preferable to a fast, there's absolutely nothing wrong with that. And if your taste buds leads you to cranberry, that's likely what you need. But then of course you could just as well - if not better - chew a few whole (organic) cranberries, as the juice is much much more concentrated..

Wishing you happiness and success.
