All the benefits of juice fasting I have experienced so far are listed below. Some of the benefits are quite similar to the benefits I experienced just from being on the raw food diet.
Benefits of Juice Fasting I Experienced So Far
The main (although subtle) benefits I have experienced so far have been:
- Slight 'sparkly' energy feeling on some occasions
- Surroundings occasionally seem brighter on a juice fast, as if my eyesight improved or I was suddenly on a higher energy vibration.
- Eyes got slightly clearer on the live juice fast.
- Mouth is a little bit clearer each morning when waking up.
- Concentration at work is much better due to juice fast, which results in work day going a lot quicker.
- Quick weight loss.
- Less bloatedness in the body and puffiness in the face during juice fast.
- Mucous gone from the throat, allergy symptoms eased.
- Heart rate slowed down (better pulse).
- No tiredness or energy slumps during the day while fasting.
- Cycling seemed a lot easier.
- Much more balanced moods, generally more happy while juice fasting.
- Flat belly.
- Feeling very relaxed and clean.
- Saving money on food (non-live juice fast).
- My mind felt sharper and my memory seemed to have improved - I felt more intelligent during the juice fast!
- Much more inspired thoughts. I felt like I wanted to start spending more time to just be still and 'listen' to all the nice thoughts that popped into my head (this was a longer, three-week juice fast).
- Occasionally this strangely fresh feeling on the inside of my chest, like a cooling sensation that felt very nice.
- Saved much time not cooking.
- I started waking up earlier than normal, naturally.
- My menses became shorter, less flow and less pain as a result of the three-week juice fast.
- And of course the benefits behind the scenes, on a cellular level, which I don't see but will benefit me...

These have been the benefits of juice fasting I have experienced - and heard of - so far. Of course the benefits were not consistent, on one day I would feel tired and on another day I would feel very good.
