“You’ll want to lay off juice for eleven days,” Julie said.

“Including organic?” Karen asked.

“Except organic. Refined sugars, no.”


“I wouldn’t,” Julie said.

“And this is good for?”

“Balance. And nutrition. And shedding those extra pounds.”

“And after eleven days, then all the juice you want?”

“I’d go another five days,” Julie said.

“So that’s sixteen days, no juice, except organic, but not prune.”

“Eleven days,” Julie reiterated, “and then I’d go another five more.”

“So that’s sixteen,” Karen mumbled but I had already lost count.

“Eleven, and that’s just juices,” Julie said, and then she moved on to grains. I already knew this diet was doomed.
