Some of the latest participants include hollywood A-listers including Salma Hayek, Gwyneth Paltrow and Sarah Jessica Parker. Juice detoxes have gone mainstream, including many programs charging people upwards of $40/day to deliver juice to their door.
Although the trend is ripe full of criticism from leading experts. ‘Juice fasts are simply not sustainable,’
‘Juicing for anything longer than a couple of days will have a profound effect on your skin,’ says cosmetic dermatologist Dr Sam Bunting. ‘Not only might you find that your skin dries out as you’re not getting any of the essential fatty acids it needs, but if you’ve already got a tendency to dry skin anyway, you may find that you start to develop patches of eczema as the barrier function is compromised.’
One real life user was quoted as saying, "I did a 42 day juice fast, the first 3 days was very draining but day 4 on I felt wonderful with plenty of clarity & energy. the forgetfulness was gone after about 5 days. I haven't got the courage up to do another lengthy juice fast again, but I did lose 20 pounds!"
The film creator Frankie Fihn adds that "The one common benefit of all diets that work long term is that they have a lot of plant-based food in them. Of course, for most people it's impossible to eat enough fruit and vegetables and juicing is the next best thing."
Currently the film is still in the fundraising stage and is seeking donations to cover its costs. More information can be found at the link below.
