Never Trust A Fart   -   Negatives To Juicing

Whether you are juicing to lose weight, to detox, help a medical condition or just to supplement your diet and stay healthy, you will need to know of one side effect and negatives to juicing - diarrhoea, which is why you can never trust a fart!

It is highly likely that you will suffer from 'bum wees' at the beginning of your juice journey but it is temporary and it is not the same type of diarrhoea you would suffer from if you have a stomach bug for example.

It is completely normal to experience adverse digestive reactions when you dramatically change your diet... especially if it's to a liquid one. When I started juicing, I experienced diarrhoea about three days in and it lasted for about three days but I had no painful stomach cramps. Luckily, I've never had an unfortunate incident, however my partner has not been quite so lucky lol!

So What Is Diarrhoea?

Diarrhoea is a medical condition that is defined by an increased number of bowel movements a day. Stools are loose or watery and it is the opposite of constipation.

What Can Causes Diarrhoea?

If you dramatically change your diet you risk the chance of suffering from diarrhoea or even constipation (depending on the change in your diet). Symptoms will continue until your digestive system gets used to your new eating habits.

Due to the high fibre content in most fruit and vegetables a natural laxative effect can take place which softens stools and encourages bowel movements. The more common culprits include avocados, prunes, cabbage, cayenne, ginger, grapes, mango and garlic but it can differ from person to person.

It will take a few days for your body to adjust once you start juicing but in the meantime you may also suffer from gas and bloating.

IMPORTANT - Wash All Your Fruit and Veg Before Juicing

Bacteria such as E. coli and Salmonella can live on fresh fruit and vegetables such as lettuce leaves and the skin of apples and grapes. These bacteria can cause stomach pains and diarrhoea.. much more serious than juicing bum wees! It is very important that you wash all your fruit and vegetables before you juice them as it can be extremely dangerous if you ingest the bacteria.

Stay Hydrated & Restore Electrolytes

Diarrhoea can cause you to lose electrolytes and hydration from your body. Ensure you stay hydrated by drinking plenty of filtered water and restore electrolytes, juices recipes that can help include:

Electrolytes - Serves 1 - 6 Kale Leaves, ½ Cucumber, ½ handful Parsley, ½ Apple, ½ inch slice Ginger (calories 44)

Hydration - Serves 1-2 - 1 cup Melons, 1 Orange, 1 cup Watermelons (calories 168)

Joe Cross, star of the hit documentary Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead has an excellent recipe book with lots of recipes for hydration and electrolytes, read my review on 101 Juice Recipes.

It's Not All Bad

The detoxifying properties of juicing causes your body to expel toxins and clean out your digestive system. The length of time you will have diarrhoea will depend on how many toxins are in your body that needs to be expelled. You can rest assured that your body will be clean as a whistle (so to speak) once it's done!
