Juice Fast

Anyone know anything about juice fasting? An overweight friend is all revved up after watching "fat, sick, and nearly dead". Basically ten days of consuming nothing but juice.
Your thoughts.

I never watched that documentary, but from what I heard: The participants in the documentary went from an almost fast food only diet to a juice fast. So by default there would be health benefits gained.

I think it could be sound for simply losing weight, but:
1. How many calories consumed is a factor. I'm under the impression that there was some form of deifict.
2. The whole "Smoothie vs Juicing" debacle as to what is more nutritious. I personally don't buy the hype that juicing allows for nutrients to hit the body quicker (And is thusly better), but I'm also a smoothie fan due to the ease of it. So you don't have to listen to me.

This isn't to say that smoothies or juicing aren't a great supplement to one's diet/replacement for a meal or two, as well as helping those who have trouble eating certain fruits and vegetables. I'm planning to incorporate it into mine. With a better blender of course.

i prefer smoothies over juicing since when you juice there is alot of pulp left, so you either throw it away or put it in soup.

Also when you juice you dont get the fiber.
