Liquid-Only Detox Cleanses: Not as "Juicy" as They Sound
Detox liquid cleanses have been around since the 1940s, promoting the benefits of drinking only fluids to rid the body of toxins. There is little science supporting the benefits of these liquid-only detox diets, and if anything, the science has started to point to some adverse health consequences from these types of cleanses. However, people keep doing these types of liquid-only detoxes because of the weight loss they see once they are done with them.
Once someone resumes normal eating, the weight they lost comes back, and sometimes they even gain back more weight than they lost. Much of the weight loss achieved through these cleanse results from fluid loss due to low carbohydrate intake. Furthermore, the health risks of liquid detox cleanse rise as the frequency someone partakes in them. Numerous studies have shown that this liquid-only detox cleanses lower the body's basal metabolic rate. It struggles to conserve energy due to the strict reduced caloric intake and lack of nutrients put in the body. These diets lack essential components your body needs to function like protein, carbohydrates, and other vital nutrients in normal body functions. The worst-case scenario is during one of these liquid-only diets, you can develop something called metabolic acidosis, a disruption of the body's acid-base balance, and this can lead to a coma or even death.
The point of detox cleanses is to reduce the toxins in your body by taking away processed foods and helping your body reset, especially your liver.
