It’s hard not to jump on the juic­ing band­wagon, what with svelte celebri­ties like Olivia Wilde and Jes­sica Alba en­dors­ing it and juice bars pop­ping up in ma­jor ur­ban cen­tres. After all, what could be wrong with drink­ing your daily dose of an­tiox­i­dant-loaded fruits and veg­gies to shed a few pounds? If you drink only juice and eat noth­ing else, you may lose weight in the short term, but you’ll gain it back be­cause you can’t sus­tain that kind of lowcalo­rie eat­ing, ex­plains Bris­sette. “Also, juic­ing re­moves fi­bre, so you’re drink­ing straight sugar,” she says.
