How long are you planning on juice fasting for?
Remember that fiber is also important - It acts kind of like a broom clearing unwanted crap out of your colon, etc.…"
"Great! I'm glad your diet is working for you!!

I just know that after struggling to stick with/enjoy veganism…"
"thank you for your feedback (:

We are primates and primates run on carbs. Throughout history, carbohydrates have been staples - when we lived in the tropics…"
