    Hey all, I recently watch the movie Fat, Sick & Nearly dead by Joe Cross. He basically went on a juicing only diet for 60 days, lost 90lbs, got really healthy, travelled across USA spreading the word etc etc I've since looked into the diet & you can do it for 3,5,10 or 15 days. You don't have to do the extreme of 60. Anyway it looks like a good idea to kick start weight loss & give the immune system a boost since you juice 80% Veg, 20% Fruit, drink only these juices, water & herbal tea. So no actual food. I was wondering have any other fellow type 1s tried this? I'm not looking for it to reverse my type 1, LOL just do the above...

    I've not tried this personally but doesn't juicing remove all the fibre?

    Apparently it removes the insoluble fibre but the soluble fibre remains...providing a way to better absorb enzymes..

    Hi

    I tried it and the 1 st weeks was ok but then it was a disaster. Very hard to control BS. I sent the juicer back and now just eat well. Don't waste ur money

    Xx
