Here’s an Excellent Question to Ask People Who Are “Cleansing” or “Detoxing”

Post by Guest on Fri Apr 22, 2016 10:26 am

First topic message reminder :

Sabrina Tavernise, writing for the New York Timesshines a spotlight on the veryPaltrowy practice of juice cleansing.
One of her interviewees is Dr. James H. Grendell, the chief of the division of gastroenterology, hepatology and nutrition at Winthrop-University Hospital in Mineola, New York. When he has a patient who’s been detoxing, he asks a very simple question.


[W]hen I ask them what they are trying to get rid of, they aren’t really sure,” said Dr. James H. Grendell, the chief of the division of gastroenterology, hepatology and nutrition at Winthrop-University Hospital in Mineola, N.Y. “I’ve yet to find someone who has specified a toxin they were hoping to be spared.”
Other medical professional also ask pointed questions that cast doubt on the claims of cleansers and detoxers.
Dr. Antoinette Saddler, a gastroenterologist at the George Washington University School of Medicine & Health Sciences, agreed to read through one of many blog posts available online about cleansing. She said she was perplexed from the beginning.
A juice diet rests the stomach, [a post] claimed. “Why does the stomach need resting?” she asked.
She read further. Juices require less of the stomach’s digestive processing, it said. “Who said that was beneficial?” she said.
And then she got to the inevitable detox claim: Juicing “allows the body to have more of the resources it needs to support the phases of detoxification, and even to begin to help remove the cumulative toxins stored in the body.” “What does that even mean?” [Saddler] said. Exasperated, she stopped reading.




Still on the fence about whether a so-called detox is worth it? Writer Tara Fuller says she’s done pretty much every cleanse under the sun, with few positive results and many negative ones. Among her findings:

[*]Your body needs protein and fiber, which are largely removed from fruits in the process of juicing.

[*]On that note, eating fruit is considerably better for you than drinking it.

[*]Cleansing makes you weak and hangry.


If the goal is to live healthy and lose weight, let me do my best Johnny Cochran impersonation and say, Dispense with the cleanse. Or, Don’t do the woo.
Instead, use less sugar, eat more fruits and grains, drink more water, get some exercise, and try to get eight hours of sleep a day. And rest assured that unless you abuse alcohol or drugs, your kidneys and liver will do all the detoxing and purifying your body needs — and they’re free!
In the words of Tavernise:
To say that drinking juice detoxifies the body isn’t quite the same as claiming leeches suck out poisons, but it’s fairly close.

How can something be wrong when the contents used is not set by any standard?

Who puts orange juice in a smoothie anyway? It's full of sugar.

The author of the article is an idiot, which is why I know Didge doesn't know his stuff and he doesn't eat what he says he does - he'd have jumped all over that recipe if he ate healthily.

He wanted to have a dig, he dug, he lost and buried himself in his own lack of knowledge.

Which shows you did not read what was being said

He was giving an example of what people generally put in one

Not that he advises to do so, showing again you just jump in blind every time

Thank you

I am sure he earned his qualifications

Where you send off for one that you pay £5 over the net to claim you are an expert does not count

And me, though I like to vary it with mango and I love the half advocado in it, gives you the good fat and makes it creamy.

Love avocados. I like them in salads with boiled eggs and olives. Used to put a bit of bacon in when I ate it, so have now substituted bacon for olives.

Egg yolks and whole eggs store significant amounts of protein and choline,[2][3] and are widely used in cookery. Due to their protein content, the United States Department of Agriculture categorizes eggs as Meats within the Food Guide Pyramid.[2] Despite the nutritional value of eggs, there are some potential health issues arising from egg quality, storage, and individual allergies.

Think you mean substituted olives for bacon lol.

I'm a big advocado fan, but, as they say, can't eat a whole one, which is why I keep a packet of the frozen halves.  They are really good.

YOU'RE THE ONE spouting crap on all matters nutrition and health on this forum, eddie -- not Didge !

IF YOU'RE determined to try and attack and embarass other people on here, at least pick a subject that you know something about..    

P.S.   Exactly where did that article's author lie ?

   lol!

Not sure what your point is either tbh, apart from the fact you think you know it all I suppose.

I may clash with Bee, but I know his strong points and what he is well educated in Eddie and would not dare to even challenge him on his strong topics

I guess you are going to find out the hard way as well

Why not point out what you thought was wrong in my article

Firstly you don't know wolf - as you keep telling everyone: It's a forum. We don't actually "know" people
Secondly, do you seriously think I will listen to someone else when I can listen to my one body and look at my own body, and know how well I am??

I AM the proof of what I believe.
Can't get much more proof than that.

I have known him through debating Eddie, far longer than you have going back to when he and I first debated on Sphinx's forum
The fact is science wise, i would not challenge him either, especially around biology

You misread my sentence and meaning by the context of the words "Jump in"

In other words, you reacted as if it was personal about you, when it never was

Just look how you first replied

Sorry to be more accurate your second post which followed straight after your first.

Had I made any comment to you Eddie, in the opening post?

No

Had I made any form of comment?

No

But as seen you took it as a personal attack from me.

lol, well if you can eat a whole big bunch of watercress, half a mango,  big piece of raw ginger etc etc at the same time, be my guest.

why the hell...would i WANT to??? the diet of a fructicose fruitloop.

I mean...I Have fruit with my breakfast....usually a bit of green stuff on my lunch and my vegies with my dinner...

I eat at least 1 apple a day plus the odd bannana and especially at this time of year loadsa salad stuff....

So as said...WHY???

I'll tell you what it is...its a fad.....like vegeterianism and veganism.....that a few brain dead clebs (especially) have made into a virtual religion.....

That does deserve a bow and agree, it is as dogmatic as if a religion as I stated on the other thread.

I can't be bothered with all this blending or juicing anyway. It just means having more gadgets in the kitchen. I should think that stressing about what you eat probably undoes all the good anyway. Plus, I'm not that keen on fruit.

People can eat and drink, what they want, how they want.
I will only comment when I see rubbish posted and I can disprove something about health and diet from personal experience which is the best proof for me.

Everybody's body is different and you can think you feel ok and one day, try something else which works better for you, and realise that this is what you should've been doing all along and you'll never know till you try it.

I think meat is not as good for humans as first thought, I've always had my doubts about milk and white sugar has no real health benefits at all.
I can live without meat and milk with no effort and sugar (in the form of chocolate and cake), is my guilty pleasure, which I allow myself because.....you only live once and it tastes better than meat!

End of, really.

Anyway, why do people do this detoxing thing? Because it makes them feel virtuous, that's why. Maybe they've overindulged in too many pies, and they want to make up for that. Maybe they want a new "project" and decide that eating a mega-healthy diet would be interesting. Maybe they try it just to see if they feel any different. If they enjoy it, or if it makes them feel good about themselves, why not?

Tell you why Vic, and 'faddiness' and 'celebrities' have nothing to do with it.  I have an under active thyroid, which means I put on weight really easily, and an over active parathyroid, which destroys your bones, and vitamin D levels that are through the floor, even with a double dose of Vitamin D every day they won't go up and they are talking about giving me injections.  That means at the moment I am suffering very bad bone and muscle pain.  Because of it, I need to keep my calcium levels up, but because of the underactive thyroid, can't have lots of milk, cheese etc and have to get the calcium from veg (as well as tinned fish) and frankly a few bits of lettuce and some broccoli with my dinner doesn't cut it.  In order to get a large amount of greenery down me I find a smoothie is the easiest way to do it.   The specialist has advised that I aim for approx 2000 mg a day (the amount recommended normally at my age is about 1200 mg).   Now, when I tell you that 1 cup of cooked broccoli contains less than 200 mg (lettuce has hardly any) and I shouldn't make it up with milk and cheese, you can see the problem.   Even a can of mackrel, sardines etc only contains 300.

So my life is a balancing act of getting enough calcium on the one hand, and keeping the fat, calories down on the other, and smoothies help that.  I can get a lot of calcium in a smoothie.   Advocados help you absorb calcium as well.

And there is another reason - I really like them and they keep me going for a long time.

I like having the smoothies becasue I don't like eating when I get up - I don't much like toast, hate most cereal and don't fancy food.
I get up at 7:30 and I don't eat until about 1pm.

At 10am I'll have my smoothie and at about 11:30am I have a big cup of strong coffee with cream.

Lunch about 1 ish

In which case there is a proven MEDICAL NEED...out side of that ...and aside from the odd...cos' I fancy one (like an ice cream) it is pure vanity/ovine mindedness
but like I said ...why would I want to?

Another reason that people might do a detox thing is that they're actually trying to cut certain things from their diet to see if something is triggering a reaction - perhaps for IBS, skin conditions like eczema or rosacea, or some types of arthritis, etc. I guess that it might actually be the "healthy" things which are a trigger, so they might want to try different things but keep it simple for a while in order to try to identify the trigger.

I really like them too sassy. I found which foods I hated raw very quickly too: celery and broccoli.
Raw celery is like a poison to me - it actually makes me gag but I love it cooked.

They give me a real energy boost, my skin is pretty blemish and wrinkle free and I feel pretty great.

Like I explained above, I hate breakfast and have no real hunger until about 1pm, so a juice is a great brunch for me.

Ive never needed food for at least 4 - 5 hours after I've got up. Seriously. Even as a child and a teen.

To be honest I never feel like eating breakfast and I'm supposed to.  A smoothie means I can drink it while I'm doing other things and a bit at a time.  Given the choice I'd probably have one meal a day, did for a long time, but now it's a case of 'calcium rules' lol

I honestly think we as humans, over eat anyway. I don't mean the obvious goodies like biscuits, puddings etc I mean how much we think we need.

I always remember that experiment where they blindfolded people and gave them all a dinner.
Most stopped when they were full and when the blindfolds were removed they were amazed at how much less they'd eaten!
