    God forbid she actually 'relaxed and enjoyed life'!

    What was she thinking?? Silly girl. Time to get the stick back up the butt and start eating grass sandwiches again.

    You can also do a mono-diet of juice and fruit. Some people find that easier. You can do juice in the morning, smoothies in the afternoon, and fruit in the evening.
    Can you buy the unsweetened juices in the grocery store or do you have to go to the hippy-dippy stores?

    You can use unsweetened juice from the grocery store - they usually have a good variety. Keep in mind that this juice has been processed and won't have as many nutrients as fruit you juice yourself, but honestly, that's what I use. I will generally eat some fresh fruit too, to make up for it.

    Gwyneth Paltrow recommends 3-week juice diet, but charges for it


    After actually giving some semi-useful information about environmentalism last week, Gwyneth Paltrow is back to being her snotty, elitist self. This week’s GOOP newsletter is a “Do”. What are we supposed to “do”, oh all-knowing Gwyneth? We’re supposed to do this three-week-long juice detox diet that she recommends. It comes via a “detoxification specialist” named Dr. Alejandro Junger:

    As I write this, I am finishing the amazing three-week-long “Clean” detox program detailed belo w. Designed by New York cardiologist and detoxification specialist Dr. Alejandro Junger, this program allowed me to work and exercise regularly, something I cannot do if I am on a liquid-only detox.

    I followed it to the letter and I can report that it worked wonders. I feel pure and happy and much lighter (I dropped the extra pounds that I had gained during a majorly fun and delicious “relax and enjoy life phase” about a month ago).

    I also really enjoyed learning about the incredible health benefits of resting your digestive system, etc. This thing is amazing. And don’t forget to ask your doctor if a cleanse is right for you. Love, Gwyneth
    [From Goop Newsletter]

    Gwyneth doesn’t love us. She’s just saying that. Anyway, the rest of the newsletter is devoted to “GOOP” asking questions of Dr. Junger, all about this detox program he’s named “Clean”. Because I guess “Give you the runs and make you feeble” was already taken. Even though I had to read the whole frigging newsletter, Goopy and Dr. Goopy don’t really give explicit instructions on the diet, you actually have to pay for the official “Clean” detox program. But I’ve culled through the info, and I think the basic gist of the “Clean” detox diet is this: eat a lot fruit, drink a lot of juice, only buy organic, get some sun when possible, meditate, get massages, enjoy a sauna, have lots of cold and hot baths, and most importantly, “remove… dairy, bread, pasta, sugar, white rice and red meat.”

    I don’t really have anything against a detox program in general - although I think three weeks is a bit excessive. It’s good for your body to change things up a bit, to eat lots of fruits and vegetables, to do all of the recommended stuff. But here’s the thing that Gwyneth never gets: the rest of us peasants don’t have her time, money, or narcissism. We have stuff we need to do, and our lives are pretty busy. When Goop is recommending lots of massages and time in the sauna, I just roll my eyes. She destroys an average message about how we could be eating better and improving our bodies with the dual message of “you can’t afford to live like this anyway”.

    Th vast majority of doctors will tell you that not only is it dangerous it doesn't do a damn thing for you. There's no such thing as a detox in that sense. Eat well over your lifetime and you won't have to worry. Fishtsticks gets more irritating with every idiotic post on her dumbass newsletter.

    What happened? The bukkake diet she was on wasn't working well enough?

    Anything you buy that is on the shelf will have had some oxidation of the beneficial phytochemicals and also be a lot more expensive and probably not taste so great.

    But if you want to be a serious juicer you'll have to fork out big bucks for a good juicer and a lot of ongoing bucks for the mountain of produce you'll go through every day. The drinking is best immediately after preparing.

    The single- and double-auger types are best for leaves. Centrifugal is good for hard fruits/vegetables like carrots and apples. It can get complicated.

    Smoothies are better, just chop up some fruits and veggies and put them in the blender with water. You get some fiber, too, that way.

    Or better yet, have a huge salad every day with lots of fruit. The fiber is one of the healthiest parts--in the lower intestine, bacterial fermentation converts the soluble fibers into short-chain fatty acids which keep your circulatory system healthy-- and you lose all of that when you juice.

    She's getting to be almost as annoying as Megan Fox.

    Just STFU please.

    I do agree about the detox. That is what your liver is for.

    But ...

    Juice fasting and mono-dieting, done for a few days at a time, are not dangerous. You are still taking in nutrients, but juices, fruits and salads digest very easily, so it gives your digestive system a chance to rest. This frees your body to focus on healing other areas. Digestion takes up an enormous amount of energy, especially if you eat a crappy diet to start with.

    The longest mono-diet I did was for seven days, starting with a 24-hour water fast. I have never felt better in my entire life. I couldn't believe the amount of energy I had - my house has never been so clean!

    Fasting is the only thing I've found that has cleared up my migraine headaches. Once I started peri-menopause, I used to get brutal headaches at least two or three times a month that would last for a minimum of two to three days [the longest one was ten days]. When I started water fasting and mono-dieting twice a week, they went away. I haven't had one since.

    I read a very telling statement in The China Study [an awesome book that I highly recommend]. Campbell said that doctors have no clue about what it takes to be healthy because they are trained to treat sick people. And in many, many instances, modern medicine does not treat the cause. It merely slaps a band aid on a symptom and you continue to get worse. Treatment for heart disease is a perfect example.

    Whether people choose to believe it or not, food is THE most powerful weapon we have against the lifestyle diseases that kill off hundreds of people every year. Dr. Dean Ornish says it is really sad that society views ripping someone's chest open for heart surgery as normal, but merely changing your diet is too radical. I agree, it is very sad, and I am always astonished by it.

    Let food be your medicine and your medicine be food. ~ Hippocrates

    PS: I loved Marie's post and I agree with her about the juice. That's why I always eat some sort of fresh raw fruit with it. If I have access to freshly-squeezed juice, I drink it alone.

    Eating healthy & exercise is the key.

    Nobody wants to hear it but it's true.

    I know.

    I can understand it though. Food is a very emotional part of our lives. We have a lot of memories tied up in food that go back our entire lives. It's familiar and comforting. I know that it took me so many years to get to the point I'm at today. I backslid a lot. It wasn't easy.

    I hate this woman and don't subscribe this stupid mailing list for obvious reason.

    That being said - I am, however, very excited whenever she has newsletters come out. That can only mean two things: 1. LOL-ing at the dumb thing she talks about; 2. GRers' bashing!

    my roomate is doing this kind of thing, and has dropped a ton of weight pretty fast.. but he still does the gym and such as well, says he feels great. It's not a juice diet.. it's like a protein mix that he puts fruit into and blends together.. a shake when he wakes up, a decent lunch, and one for dinner.
