What You Should Know
The Jumpstart 7 Day Weight Loss Program is designed to flush toxins from the body and detox all while losing weight. The diet is a fruit juice fast, so dieters need to understand food intake will be severely limited for 7 days. There is a series of pictures showing weight loss progression when the author of the eBook followed the Jumpstart 7 Day Weight Loss Program. There is little doubt that drinking juice for 7 days will promote weight loss, mostly in the form of water weight, but this diet only lasts those first 7 days. Weight loss often takes months or years to achieve naturally, so what is the dieter to do after the 7 days are over and water weight returns?
List of Ingredients
Juice fasting eBook for weight loss.
For 7 days, the author of the Jumpstart 7 Day Weight Loss Program wants dieters to drink juice and detox the body. Fruit juice is commonly used to promote bowel movements or treat constipation. Full strength juices also have a diuretic effect. Weight loss is about more than detoxing the body, but that “more” is not supported by the Jumpstart 7 Day Weight Loss Program. All the author is worried about is selling his 7 days of recipes via eBook. Future weight loss or total weight loss goals are not addressed.
Brendan McCarthy has no medical or nutritional degree. He owns a marketing company and researched the power of juice after losing his brother to cancer. Through years of “research” the author stumbled on a safe and effective means of weight loss involving juicing. There is no mention of owning a juicer for the diet plan, but we assume the recipes require fresh juice from a variety of fruits and vegetables, so the dieter needs to have a juicer at home.
We appreciate the fact that the author is honest about his background, but dieters need more than a sad story to promote a program like the Jumpstart 7 Day Weight Loss Program. Dieters won’t lose any more than 2 to 3 pounds during the first 7 days of any weight loss program. The rest of the weight loss is water weight.

Juicing is a healthy means of promoting vitamin and nutrient intake, but it is not an effective means of weight loss. When deprived of food, the body shuts down and conserves fat for energy. Drinking juice for 7 days will promote water loss, but that is not the same as weight loss or fat loss.
