(KAIT/NBC) - You've probably heard of fruit and vegetable juice detox diets, but do they work?

Clinical dietitian Gabriela Gardner says most juicers separate fiber from the blend.

The fiber in fruits and veggies, plus the water, flush your system and keep toxins out of your body.

"There are going to be juices that they're putting three or four fruits and only one vegetable, you know, that's not quite a good ratio. I do recommend having more vegetables. You want to have two or three right there and maybe one fruit," Gardner said.

Gardner adds that the best bet is to ditch the juice trend and simply eat your vegetable.
