LumaSlim Review

by Emily Jacob (2019-06-15)

Juice fasting is an example of a LumaSlim detox diet, used for cleansing your body of toxins and waste, that can result in rapid weight loss. Unlike other detox diets, juice fasting is known to be more extreme because no solid food is consumed. Typically, this method is used for only a few days to achieve results quickly and continued fasting requires medical supervision and monitoring. Juice fasting can cause a number of side effects ranging from temporary symptoms like headaches, tiredness and constipation to fainting, dizziness, and diahrrea, which leads to dehydration. Fasting is NOT recommended for people taking prescription medications, pregnant or nursing women, and anyone with diabetes or blood sugar issues/nutritional deficiencies. The benefit of juicing in general comes from unlocking the pure nutrients contained in fruits and vegetables. Unlike water fasting, juice from fruits and vegetables allows the body to continue a fast for a longer period of time while having a high energy level from the nutrients. A common result from this fasting method is reported as losing 1 pound per day, and varies depending on each individual's metabolism. Fasting provides some relief to the digestive system, which frees up some energy for accelerated healing as juice is filled with antioxidants, enzymes, vitamins and minerals yet low enough in calories to force the body to work on waste first. The most direct explanation of how fasting helps in weight loss is the use of fat cells as fuel. Excess fat comes from extra calories stored in fat cells, and fasting uses those fat cells as the body needs calories. Each pound of fat contains approximately 3500 calories. Similar to low-carb diets, once your body has burned up the sugars and food in your system, it will start to burn fat to sustain itself. Luckily, the intake of nutrient rich vegetable juice and fruit juice will help skin maintain its elasticity so you won't be left with a lot of hanging skin from the areas where more fat was burned.
