Fasting means going without solid food. Usually fasting is just water but it can also be done with broths or fresh juices-which is safer and helps keep your blood sugars normal. The goal of fasting is to give your body a break from digestion and to remove toxins from the body. This can also be achieved with a detoxification diet composed only of organic fruits, vegetables brown rice, and a detoxification protein drink like GI Detox Support 10 which has all of the supportive nutrients and cofactors necessary for detoxification giving your body a break from toxins and foods which are difficult to digest but still allowing you to eat regularly.
To prepare for a fast it is extremely helpful to eat a diet of fruits, vegetables and rice for a couple days beforehand to allow your body to transition into the fast. It is also important that during the time you will be fasting you allow yourself to focus on the fast. Make sure you get plenty of sleep, restful time and gentle exercise - your body will benefit from some tender loving care!
Are you tired of the numerous diets out there that are not working for you? Quit playing the yo-yo diet. This means playing with your weight... up, down, up, down... This type of weight loss is not good for your body. When you diet, your body reacts as if it was in a state of starvation. As soon as you start eating normally again, your body will automatically store the calories you are eating as fat because it is reacting to the unpleasant deprivation of calories through dieting. This leads to the weight you had previously lost returning, as well as, a few extra pounds despite your best effort and willpower to remove the weight. So be cautious and learn how to change your diet to maintain your healthy weight successfully.
