What is a Juice Cleanse?

During juice fasting, no form of solid food is consumed for a limited period of time. The digestive organs are relieved and the body cleanses itself from the inside. The good news is that, despite doing without solid food, the body can be supplied with valuable vitamins, minerals and secondary plant substances. This effectively supports the detoxification process and gets the immune system going again.

Juice Fast Benefits

You may wonder why you should undergo the juice cleanse diet at all, because abstaining from solid food for up to a week does not sound like much fun. But the good news is that avoiding solid food for a certain amount of time has many health benefits. Many people also use juice fasts for weight loss, as it is a high nutrient and low calorie diet and a way to reset eating habits.

Juice Fasting is Great for the Mind

Did you know that many people gain enriching insights and impulses for their lives through therapeutic fasting? Inner peace and balance, clarity and reflection on one's own way of life are often part of the fasting regimen. Some people develop a completely new body feeling when they realize what they are capable of in difficult situations. Learn to value your body and incorporate these insights into your everyday life. Combining this with a juice fast retreat offers you the unique opportunity to switch off, rest your mind, and define your new eating habits with fasting nutritionists.

Types of Juice Fasts

There are different types of juice cleanses. In order to find the right method for you, we would like to introduce you to a few of them.

Lemon Juice Cleanse

One of the probably simplest, but nevertheless amazingly effective variants is the lemon juice cleanse. Only four ingredients are needed: lemon juice, water, maple syrup and cayenne pepper. This method was devised over 50 years ago by Stanley Burroughs. One of his patients suffered from stomach ulcers for years and was completely cured within eleven days by the lemon juice cleanse. Over the years, the lemon juice cleanse has also proven effective for other ailments. However, it should only be carried out for a few days because, as with many fasting regimens, proteins and carbohydrates, but also fibre and many important vitamins and minerals are missing. If you do not know whether you can undergo such a fasting treatment, speak to your doctor and inform us about any illnesses before booking.

Classic Juice Fast

The classic juice fasting regimen provides your body with more vitamins and minerals than the lemon juice cleanse. You consume at least five different cold-pressed fruit and vegetable juices throughout the day, which provide the body with a wider range of important nutrients.










Juice Cleanse with Smoothies

A gentler variant of juice fasting is the juice cleanse with smoothies, great for first-time fasters! This method of fasting does not involve pressing fruit and vegetables, but pureeing or blending them. By taking pureed fruit and vegetables, you give your body almost all of the nutrients it needs while staying satisfied longer. The only disadvantage of the smoothie diet is that the digestive organs have to further process the fruit and vegetable pulp and the body cannot concentrate as fully on the detoxification process as with the classic juice fast or the lemon juice cleanse.

There are no limits to your creativity with a smoothie diet, but due to the high sugar content of many fruits, you should make sure to incorporate detox smoothies with sufficient vegetables. This form of juice fast diet is one of the gentlest, which is why it is ideal for beginners.

The Juice Cleanse Holiday

Overlooking Lake Balaton, you can gently detox your body in Hungary and replenish your energy reserves. The hotel breaks this down into smaller juice fast stages. The first stage is comprised of two days focusing on relaxation with a vegetarian diet. These days relieve the body and help it to get in the best possible condition for the upcoming fasting days. You treat yourself to rest, drink plenty of water and reduce your coffee consumption, for example, to allow a gentle start into the juice fast. This is followed by the second stage, five juice fasting days with five juices each day each, as well as unlimited herbal teas and lots of water. During the fasting programme, you will be accompanied by experienced fasting nutritionists and physicians as well as enjoy additional treatments such as detoxifying baths, massages, yoga, and much more. Lastly, the third stage is when you break your fast in two build-up days with mild vegetarian food.

At the Detox Retreat in Dubai you will not only be served fruit and vegetable juices, but also smoothies, broths and soups. Furthermore, there is a variety of detox treatments such as massages, detox hammam, saunas, steam baths etc.

Strengthened by Ayurvedic teas and juices, you will explore ancient temples and after your return home enjoy high-quality Ayurveda and wellness offers in a luxurious ambience directly on the beach.

The Length of Your Juice Cleanse Holiday

A juice cleanse promises good results even over a short period of time. If you are planning this kind of regimen for the first time and don't know how your body copes with the withdrawal of food, you should first fast for 3-5 days. For optimal results, however, we recommend a complete week of fasting. You should not undergo a juice fasting diet for longer than a week to avoid possible symptoms of deficiency (especially proteins). For these reasons, our hotel partners offer 3, 5 or 7 day juice fasts. For those who wish to fast for longer than 10 days, for example if you are aiming to fast for 21 or 30 days, we recommend our alkaline diet offers. Always consult with your personal physician before undergoing any long-term fasts or a fasting retreat.

FAQ: How to plan my juice cleanse and other juice fast tips

How long should I do a juice cleanse?

Juice fasting should in all cases only be carried out over a period of a few days to avoid symptoms of deficiency. Therefore you will find juice treatments for three days, five days and up to a week.

What are the stages of a juice fast diet?

A juice fast or cleanse can be broken down into three main stages:

  1. Preparation: Here you reduce your calories and start phasing out processed foods, eating lighter meals comprised of whole foods.
  2. Fasting: Your diet should now consist of only juices or smoothies, depending on which fasting diet you have chosen.
  3. Breaking the fast: It is time to ease your body out of consuming liquids. Start by eating small portions of easily digestible fruits and veggies. Slowly begin incorporating larger meals and other foods into your daily diet.

Which side effects can arise during a juice cleanse?

If you have been drinking coffee or high amounts of sugar every day for years, the sudden withdrawal of caffeine or sugar will cause headaches. However, this feeling usually disappears after a few days. The low-calorie diet can also sometimes cause feelings of weakness and dizziness. There is also the possibility that your body will react to the "change in diet" with diarrhoea and flatulence. In most cases, however, the side effects tend to disappear quickly and should not affect you too much. If side effects persist, you should consult your physician.

How do I lose weight with fasting?

The best way to use juice fasting as a way to lose weight, is to use it to restart your healthy eating habits. Do you find it hard to kick a sugar habit or tend to go for take-out instead of cooking a quick healthy meal at home? A juice cleanse might help you reconnect with your body and kick-start a healthy diet that will shed the pounds on the long run. It gives you the chance to evaluate your patterns and help you see the health benefits of fresh produce.

Does a juice cleanse give you a fasting high?

Even with the juice cleanse, the so-called fasting high can occur after a few days. This is because the brain releases more serotonin. Also, overcoming your hunger and cravings can increase your self-confidence.

Who should, under no circumstances, undergo a juice fast?

Only a few exceptions speak against carrying out a professional juice fasting therapy. This includes pregnancy or breastfeeding. In addition, diabetes patients, dementia patients, patients with an eating disorder, hyperthyroidism, as well as liver or kidney deficiency should refrain from juice fasting.

How can I ensure that my body is supplied with sufficient protein during the diet?

If different types of fruits and vegetables are used during the therapy, it is not necessary to take dietary supplements, as this already covers a wide range of vitamins. Although there is a long-term lack of proteins during juice or smoothie fasting. As most regimens last less than a week, this does not have any serious consequences for a healthy person.

Are all fruits and vegetables allowed during juice fasting?

In general, there are no restrictions in the choice of fruit and vegetables. Depending on your taste, you can mix your juices and smoothies to your heart's content. If you would like to take in certain vitamins due to individual health problems, you should find out about the respective nutrients in advance. Some juice cleanses are reduced to a specific fruit, such as the lemon juice cleanse.

How can the yo-yo effect be prevented after a stay in a fasting hotel?

In order to keep a lasting weight loss, you should continue to ensure a healthy and balanced diet as well as sufficient exercise even after the juice fast. Also, a juice fasting therapy offers a great opportunity to check your eating habits, also for your heart and kidneys, and to eliminate harmful habits from your life once and for all.

Juice cleanse vs. Buchinger: what’s the difference?

Both are liquid fasts that provide the body with some calories for basic functions as well as vital nutrients. They’re both a great choice if you’re looking to do a fast or cleanse for around a week. If you are looking to treat a particular medical condition, it might be more beneficial for you to try a Buchinger fast, as there are generally additional treatments included to target specific conditions. Find out more on our dedicated Buchinger page!

Juice cleanse vs. water fasting: what’s the difference?

During a water fast, you deprive your body of essential vitamins and minerals that are necessary to maintain your vital organs and the rudimentary processes in your body. When doing a classic juice fast or smoothie cleanse, however, you are still consuming some calories as well as many vitamins and minerals. This ensures that you are able to complete your juice cleanse without any major vitamin or mineral deficiencies. Most doctors will discourage water fasting altogether, as it may cause more harm than good.
