The Drs TV: Gaining Weight From Juice Cleanse
One woman shared how she tried a juice cleanse to lose weight. The cleanse involved drinking five juices a day for five days, and on the first day she felt really tired and struggled to get through her day. After the third day, she was really bloated to the point where some of her clothes weren’t even fitting as well. At the end of the cleanse, she had put on five pounds.
Dr. Travis Stork explained that when just drink juice, you’re getting rid of all the fiber, so you’re only left with sugar from the fruits and vegetables. Without the fiber, your blood sugar and insulin skyrocket and you don’t feel as full. He explained that people who do the juice cleanse don’t get other things like protein, fiber, or fats, so it can lead to weight gain.
He said to be smart, one of the things you want to do is to throw in a lot of greens or things that have protein like nut butter. Dr. Stork said you want to squeeze the most out of your glass, which lead to the word of the day, squeeze!

The Drs TV: Enterovirus D68 Death
The death of a 4-year-old boy in New Jersey was linked to enterovirus D68. Since August, hundreds of children have been sent to the hospital due to D68. A polio-like paralysis has also potentially been connected with the virus. In the case of the 4-year-old boy who passed away, he was asymptomatic for D68 and before passing, he was observed to only have pink eye. There is currently no cure or prevention for D68 but dilligent hygiene and hand washing is encouraged. The CDC said the U.S. is in the middle of enterovirus season and is expected to ease in late fall.
