Juice fasting versus water fasting.
By juice, obviously I am not attempting to provide nutrition for my body solely with Mott's apple-urine. I am referring to raw vegetable juices made with my unbelievably strong hands. (sometimes I use a juicer)
I have done a little research into the subject, but I wanted to pose the question to the omniscient posters here at Mark's Daily: What is better, juice fasting or water fasting?
My current understanding is that both achieve nearly the same things: promote lipolysis, reduction of blood glucose levels, fasting insulin levels, brain health (energy saved in one department is used in another?), etc... but from what I am reading, I am gathering that water fasting for extended periods of time eventually does break down the amino acids in muscle proteins resulting in lean body mass being lost, whereas with juice fasting, you are providing your body with the nutrients it needs to prevent that loss.
Also have questions about the autolysis in water versus juice fasting but I will save that for further discussions.
