Myth: "Juice fasts are the best way to drop pounds." Beyoncé famously used the Master Cleanse to drop 20 pounds before filming "Dreamgirls." "I lived on water, cayenne pepper, and maple syrup for 14 days," she said. "It was tough; everyone was eating and I was dying." Gwyneth Paltrow and Naomi Watts have both professed their love for Organic Avenue juices. But it's important to know that not all juices are created equal. "Juicing is a great way to get nutrients into your body -- but drink green juices," says Lipman. "A lot of the juices are too sugary." Fruit-based juices can actually cause you to gain weight, and Beyoncé's Master Cleanse juice had hardly any nutrients at all -- not exactly a healthy way to lose weight.
