Like we say, a detox should be treated as a chance to give your body a chance to chill from all the toxins that every day food carries, so what exactly does eating while on a detox do? Well, I guess the answer is quite a clear one.... it all depends on what you're eating! It's not rocket science that if you juice all day & then tuck in to a Big Mac then it makes the whole process somewhat counter productive, however if you feed your body with some pure, organic wholefoods then we can expect to see the results similar to abstaining from food! For example, if you juice throughout the day & then have an evening meal with some kale, whole grains & stay away from anything processed then you can feel the benefits similar to just juicing. We would recommend staying away from meat & going as raw & organic as possible to really feel the difference.
So, although there's no negatives it's most definitely all about balance when considering eating while on a juice detox! We have a perfect juice til dinner package available which ticks all the right boxes too...
