Many of my friends were diagnosed with mild to severe fatty liver problems. On my suggestion, most of them who went on this 30-day watermelon and green juice fast hugely benefited from it. This fast not only helped with melting away excess fat from the liver but also detoxifying it. Post the 30 days, they altered their lifestyles towards the path of conscious eating and healthy living and now swear by these juice fasts. This watermelon juice is a healthy way to boost your body’s natural detoxification process. Watermelon helps the liver process ammonia (waste from protein digestion) and helps eliminate excess waste. Try out this watermelon and green juice fast for yourselves, and drink away your fatty liver!
This juice is simple and quick to make and requires just two ingredients – fresh watermelons and lemon. Add a whole lemon, along with its skin, for optimal results. Initially, lemon rind might give the juice a bitter, astringent aftertaste, but gradually, you will get used to it. After the first week, add generous amounts of chlorophyll to your juice. You can do this by either adding powdered supplements or through leafy vegetables. I prefer and suggest taking the natural route as it provides nutritional benefits and natural healing properties. (If planning to start the juice challenge, invest in a good masticating juicer, which will produce less pulp and waste and keep the nutrients of fruits and veggies intact in the juice)

In a blender, place the watermelon pulp (from the juicer), add the rind and sliced lemon on top of the chunks and blend till you get a fine smoothie consistency
Place a cheesecloth over a jar and add the pulp smoothie into it. Squeeze to release all the juices. Blend again and repeat this process twice or thrice to juice out all nutrients from the rind
Mix it with the juice. Pour the juice in a container, refrigerate and drink throughout the day.
Make the juice fresh each day.
