Ask the Nutritionist

Posted by jeffsmith23 on 6 years ago A doctor friend of mine gave me a lengthy list of supplements he takes. I am about to see how I do on a 10 day juice fast. Can I take the vitamin, fish oil, and other supplements. Would it be best to do the fast without the supplements? Jeff

    I would do the supplements afterwards if you want. This way you won't have the problem of knowing was it the juicing or the sups you were feeling. And any problems you have can be made easier to solve because you won't be doing multiple things at the same time. Juicing has lots of proteins, vitamins, and minerals, and even enough fiber to keep your insides moving.

    Dear jeffsmith23, We suggest across the board to only take supplements that have been prescribed by a doctor or health care professional such as Vitamin D, iron or B12 if you have a deficiency. Fish oils can be taken while juicing if you wish to although we do not suggest multi-vitamins.

    Jeff, In this post: http://www.rebootwithjoe.com/forums/topic/missing-nutrition-b12-d-12-e-12-zinc/ you can see my end of day values if I had eaten the whole fruit/vegetable. 0 B-12 and 0 D and low on E and Zinc But WAY good on the others, and WAY over on some. So the diet itself gets you most of everything you need, though I am considering looking for a good way to sneak b-12 into my juices.

    If you are Rebooting longer than 15 days you should also consider adding protein to your juices: http://www.rebootwithjoe.com/protein-on-a-reboot/
