The latest celebrity to try a juice detox is none other than model-actress Nargis Fakhri, who turned into a dietician for her film 'Main Tera Hero'. Nargis, who herself shed weight by going on a special juice diet, made her co-star Illeana D'Cruz try the same for one of the scenes in the film.
"I had a great time shooting in Bangkok. While I was there, I always wanted to try a juice cleanse. I have heard and researched great things about giving your body a break from regular or junk food, so I decided to try a six day juice cleanse. I lost three kilos in six days," Nargis said.
She also said that seeing her diet course, Illeana got curious whom she convinced to try it. But she could do it only for one day, the actress said. The phenomenon of juice detox has taken the world by storm ever since reports of its benefits have been piling up.
Some people swear by it because it's kind of a reset button for their body - it makes them feel healthier and lighter. Lot of people have reported tremendous weight loss and tagged it as a phenomenon that 'changes your life.' As with all trends, this one too has it's share of skeptics. They're of the opinion that juice detox diets are nothing but a quick fix solutions that result in a temporary water weight loss.
All said and done, this new obsession is here to stay - with everyone from celebrities to regular folk lapping up the trend, one glass at a time.
