Greensboro, NC -- Every year there's a new weight loss fad, South Beach diet, Atkins diet, and lately we've heard of people using feeding tubes to lose weight.
Another one on the list, The Blue Print Cleanse. News 2's Eric Chilton and Jackie Fernandez tried out the three-day juice cleanse, that's six juice bottles a day.
Dietician Heather Baron from Wesley Long Hospital stopped by the Good Morning Show to answer a few questions about the safety of these detox methods.
A juice cleanse contains large amounts of sugar. Although it's natural sugar, it's not meant for everyone. Baron said "a healthy diet is a well balanced diet, which includes fiber, whole grains and protein. When you cut back on protein, you can feel weak and tired, and the concentrated fruit drinks make you feel dehydrated."
Baron also said a juice cleanse is not a suitable diet for diabetics or people with any kind of kidney damage.
