    Naked Juice: Juice Fast Fast Food?

    Hi all,

    I'm sure there's a bazillion and one similar threads asking about the pros and cons of Naked Juice in a juice fast, but I had some specific queries I couldn't find answers to online.

    I'm six days into my third 10 day juice fast this year. The first was in March, the second in August, and the third I began three days after Thanksgiving. I have a masticating juicer for the first time (used centrifugal in the past but was frustrated by all the wet pulp), and because of this particular model's design, I have to strain my juice before drinking it to remove excess pulp.

    My understanding of the juice fast is that I want to eliminate as much fiber as possible in order to shut down my digestive system so the enzymes used there can be applied elsewhere. The problem I'm now encountering is that I sometimes use Naked brand juice as a sort of "juice fast fast food," or "fasting McDonalds" if you will. I.e., if my day is busy and I don't have time to make a batch of fresh juice, or if I'm out and about and hungry, I can grab a bottle on the go. But in straining my Naked Juice this time around, I'm discovering it's pulpier than I imagined. Straining it is time consuming (defeating the purpose of the juice fast fast food notion) and ends up producing less juice.

    So my question is: should one strain Naked juice before drinking it during a juice fast? Is there enough pulp in there to undo the efforts to relax the digestive tract?

    Also, as a little "PS," how necessary are the enemas? I did a natural salt water enema last fast and just ended up passing water. I already make a bowel movement a day while fasting, generally (short duration, thin dark colored stool).

    I would not worry about the pulp at all in an occasional Naked juice, and no you do not need an enema unless you want one. Your body will take care of its elimination needs naturally.

    When you can't juice, you may also want to try organic carrot juice which is widely available. I love it and it doesn't contain as much sugar as the Naked juices.

    In the morning, while rushing to work I don't have time to put vegetables in a juicer. So I've found a new convenient way of making my juice, I used Organifi it's a powdered formula packed with superfoods that benefit your health. the ingredients include:
    Chlorella
    A green algae super high in protein and healthy polyunsaturated fats.

    Wheatgrass
    Known as the "life-blood" of plant life. Even the ancient egyptians worshipped this food for it's positive health benefits.

    Spirulina
    A good source for plant protein! Spirulina is also high in iron and calcium. The Aztecs first discovered this food in Central America, and they consumed it daily for energy and strength.
    Mint
    We all know this herb as a fragrant addition to popular dishes and drinks. The Mint leaf has been used the world over for aiding in the occasional indigestion, cramps, whitening teeth, and as a sleep aid.
    Turmeric
    This spice contains powerful antioxidants.
    Moringa
    Contains all the essential amino acids needed by the body. Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins which are needed to grow, repair and maintain cells.
    Ashwagandha
    is an adaptogen which is made of (a combination of amino acids, vitamins, and herbs) that modulate your response to stress or a changing environment. Adaptogens help the body cope with external stresses such as toxins in the environment and internal stresses.
    Lemon
    You may not know this, but this citrus fruit has incredible appetite fighting effects, and has been known to cool and alkalize the body. This is crucial for stabilizing your blood-sugar already within normal ranges.
    Coconut Water
    This natural refreshment is high in potassium and assists in the transport of all of the above ingredients throughout the blood stream.
    Beets
    Beets are high in folate and manganese. Many people don’t care for the texture of raw beets, however, the isolated juice tastes great in the mix and is a nutritious super ingredient.
    Matcha Green Tea
    A common refreshment in Japanese monasteries, Matcha is high in an antioxidant called EGCG which reduces stress, regulates hormones within normal ranges, and reduces appetite.
    Just put it water shake it up and drink
