Food Blogger Does a Juice Cleanse as an Experiment: The Preparation

Lately, there's been a whole lot of fuss about juice cleansing -- we've even featured a bunch of articles on the subject.

From chemicals in the water to pesticides and herbicides on produce to the saturated fats in animal products, it's no doubt that the average American ingest his or her fair-share of unhealthy waste.

With the excess and indulgence of the holidays behind us, I decided it was time to try out a juice cleanse myself.

For someone who makes a living by eating incessantly, it's going to be a challenge -- and probably hilarious.
