Don't Get It Twisted, Juicing And Juice Cleansing Are Not The Same Thing

June 30, 2015 by Rachel Gulmi

I thought the juice craze was going to die by now, but I guess not. It seems wherever I go people are sipping from green, orange, and red drinks like it’s the new coffee. I suppose for most people it is, as it seems juicing is good for our bodies. But, what’s the difference between juicing and juice cleanses? I’ve heard of both but never really understood the difference. Example: someone says, “I’m doing a juice cleanse” or “I just started juicing.” Both, quite frankly, don’t sound appetizing, but people seem to be on board. After doing some online research, here’s the main variation between the two.

Juicing: Well, let’s start with the meaning. “Juicing involves a process where the natural liquids, vitamins, and minerals are extracted from raw fruits and vegetables, this process strips away any solid matter from the fruits and vegetables and you’re left with liquid only,” as stated by nutritionist, McKel Hill.

Most people aim to have at least one glass of juice throughout the day, usually in the morning with breakfast. Juicing is also a great way to incorporate fruits and vegetables into your daily diet. Juices are packed with vitamins, antioxidants, minerals, etc. It’s important to note when you juice a fruit or vegetable, you are removing the fiber that’s in the pulp of whole fruits and veggies. However, you can totally add the pulp back into your juice if you want to consume its fiber.

Juice Cleansing: This is basically a juice fast, meaning you don’t eat solid food during it. A majority of people who do a juice cleanse do it for the purpose of losing weight or detoxing their body. Of course you will lose weight during a juice cleanse because 1. you aren’t eating solid food and 2. you’re shedding water weight. However, in the long run a juice cleanse will not help you lose weight. As for detoxing, the body detoxes naturally, through the liver, kidneys and GI tract, so there’s no need to try doing it yourself.

It seems like juicing is the way to go, rather than the fad juice cleanses.
