It's simple water retention. I get that after binging on the juice and people DO NOTICE. Once you quit, your face will go back to normal in about a week, on week 2 your skin clears up and doesn't look so ruddy and the bags under the eyes start to fade.
Your kidneys aren't processing all the toxins out of your body so you will tend to hold water in your face, fingers and tummy.
Alcohol is evil, evil, evil. I've always been so proud that I never abused drugs or even experimented with pot or anything, but on the flip side, I am a raging alcoholic. I can't function socially without it. I quit over a month ago and haven't had the cravings yet, but I know they are lurking around the corner.
