I can't speak for everyone of course but I would never, ever do one of these. I do on occasion, or did before I was diabetic, an juice fast about once a month with a very hot bath at the end of the fast. The next day I would make sure to eat plenty of fresh veggies and fruits and yogurt. There are also specific foods that you can consume that will help to cleanse the body of toxins.

Some folks use these cleanses all the time, BUT there are others who have had very serious problems that have developed from their use.

If you do decide to do one be very careful to read the ingredient list even if it says gluten-free on the box. Some companies consider things like wheat grass and barley grass to be safe. They are not.

The others have given good advice. It's simply a bad idea. For some specifics, look here:
