What's the solution for the winter cleanse? Everywhere the experts say to eliminate carbohydrates. But our bodies crave carbohydrates. Besides I've tried those juice makers and after a Kale, Spinach, Carrot and Orange "Smoothie" I'm not convinced that juicing is the answer. Authors of "Clean Cuisine" Ivy Ingram Larson and Dr. Andy Larson write that "Low-carb diets are not only unhealthful but can actually be dangerous; complications such as increased cancer risk, lipid abnormalities, impairment of physical activity can all be linked to the long-term restriction of carbohydrates in the diet." The key they say is to make sure the carbohydrates are whole carbohydrates from real food including starchy, earthy vegetables like the parsnip.
