    I have started a green detox with the promise that I will lose weight by several Youtubers and bloggers.

    However, I have also read that after successfully completing the detox I can expect to put all the weight back on if not more..

    Is this true? Am I wasting my time?

    My green detox are: cucumber, kale, parsley, carrot, apple, lime, lemon and so forth.. all blended or juiced.

    I just want to get rid of some weight and transition into a healthier life..

    It's absolutely fantastic that you want to consume these ingredients. They are all great for you. However, the issue I have with juicing is that large % of the nutrients get destroyed due to heat caused by the internal friction when you juice at high RPM. Juicers that save the pulp still don't account for this. (Can someone else verify this?)

    You are better off having these vege/fruit whole.

    And to answer your question, it will not make any difference to weight loss. Your body is very good at detoxing itself.

    Thank you so much for this. I don't plan on juicing through. Just blending and drinking.

    Do you think that will be effective? Of course I'm hoping to lose weight but it's more about a healthy life style. Or is it a waste of time? Should I cave into my hunger thoughts?
