Best Fasting Fruits

For those who want to give it a try, here's a list of the best fruits for juice fasting. Although there is no medical research proving these fruits are effective in cleansing your body, they certainly supply a lot of healthy nutrients.

Best Internal Cleansers

Juice fast proponents claim juices made from beets, cabbage, wheatgrass, sprouts, lemons, carrots, celery, green peppers, oranges, parsley, apples, and grapefruit will help your body detox. The best diuretics include watermelon, parsley, cucumber, lemon, kiwifruit, asparagus, and cantaloupe with the seeds.

Bulking agents, including psyllium husks and flaxseed, will curb your appetite and keep you near the bathroom. Herbs that juicing proponents tout as cleansers include herbal teas like dandelion and nettle, which purportedly help cleanse the liver and kidneys.
