Your body has to have the correct electrolyte balance or it just doesn’t function right. When you’re following a fasting diet such as the Snake Diet, it’s important that you take steps to maintain this balance.
That’s why one of the guidelines mentions using Snake Juice. This juice is intended to be used as that electrolyte replacement so that you keep the right PH balance. When you do this, it aids your efforts in weight loss.
There’s not one single way to make the diet juice, but several different ways that you can make it. One of the most popular ways is the simple recipe. This means using 2 liters of water as your base.
Then add 1 teaspoon of potassium chloride. You’ll also add a ½ teaspoon of Himalayan Pink Salt. Next, you’ll add 1 teaspoon of sodium bicarbonate. This is also known as baking soda.
You can also add ½ teaspoon of magnesium sulphate, also known as Epsom salt, but that’s not a requirement. Just know that if you do add this, it is prone to causing diarrhea.
Once you blend the mixture together, you can place it in the refrigerator until it’s cold then drink it when it’s time. When you’re measuring out the ingredients for the Snake Juice, it’s important that you measure precisely.
If you’re not going to be drinking any water when using the Snake Juice on the diet, then you can make the juice using a liter of water, 1 teaspoon of sodium bicarbonate and ½ teaspoon of the potassium chloride.
When taking any recipe of the Snake Juice, you want to be sure that you drink it well before it’s time for you to refeed. Otherwise, it can mess with the acid balance. In case you’re going to drink water with the Snake Juice, then you would alter the recipe to using 1 teaspoon of the potassium chloride instead of ½ and you would use 2 teaspoons of sodium bicarbonate.
The diet does have a juice that some use as a Snake Juice specifically for the kidneys. This juice is made of ½ cup water, 1 tablespoon of organic apple cider vinegar and ½ teaspoon of sodium bicarbonate.
During phase one of the diet, you’ll engage in a 48 hour fast, during which you can’t have any food but should drink the snake juice instead.
The times that you’ll drink the snake juice during the diet can depend on what your feeding windows are.
As for how often you need to drink this juice, the recommendation is no more than three times for each day or twenty-four hour period.
