I watched that documentary a while back on Amazon Prime. It was interesting.

I've got this recorded to watch at some time. Saw the start but then life got in the way!

I watched it recently, and just incorporated it into my IF routine. At this point I am just juicing for one or 2 meals on my feed days(usually not a meal coming off my fast, but another meal). Tomorrow I am doing my first fast of the week, and am going to use my allotted calories for 2 juices. I am trying to kick up my weight loss a bit as it has slowed down on IF(4:3) even though I am still doing the same thing as when I first started.

Juice with caution.
read a relatively recent thread


Always worry when some of us try to change the simple principles of 5:2 and add to it restrictions in food types, times of eating, sleeping, paleo, types of food preparation etc etc.

K.I.S.S. Keep it simple sweetie is what i say. Find 2 (or 3) days you reduce to 25% of TDEE and watch it all just fall off!

Understood, but don't see how using up my fasting calories on juice vs eating something else with lower nutrients would make a difference. The benefit of juice is alot of macronutrients for a low caloric load so its better quality calories than eating something else (good or bad). The question is does the juice give you enough of a feeling of fullness to fight off hunger pains. I think all of us who have been on IF for any length of time for weight loss get to a point where we plateau a bit and need to change things up, at least for a short time. I do like the extra energy I get from from juicing so do plan to incorporate the extra nutrients via a juice now and then. Don't see myself going on the all juice fast like in the documentary as that is a total lifestyle change and can't see myself living that way.
