I found this study interesting. These calorie restricted mice
are actually creating fat just to turn around and burn it.
"CR mice oxidized four times as much fat per day as ad libitum
(AL)-fed controls (367 +/- 19 vs. 97 +/- 14 mg/day, P < 0.001)
despite reduced energy intake from fat. This increase in FA
oxidation was balanced by a threefold increase in adipose tissue FA
synthesis compared with AL. Expression of FA synthase and
acetyl-CoA carboxylase mRNA were increased in adipose and liver in
a time-dependent manner. We conclude that CR induces a surprising
metabolic pattern characterized by periods of elevated FA synthesis
alternating with periods of FA oxidation disproportionate to
dietary FA intake. This pattern may have implications for oxidative
damage and disease risk."
You've gotta love that last lipophobic line! Fat burning is
probably THE major reason CR extends life.

It is quite amazing, all the studies that prove that being a fat
burner truly is the answer, yet it is still not the standard of
practice in our health care system.
Best of health!

Aside from weight loss, if you are concerned about getting into
the fat burning mode for other health benefits , then ingesting
carbohydrate calories breaks the fast, so your juice will
stop any progress you might make toward that goal.
