When Fasting For Weight Loss Remember The Following

When Fasting For Weight Loss Remember The Following

Well,​ it’s been labeled as​ “the greatest remedy-the physician within” by Philippus Paracelsus and more and more people are discovering the​ use of​ fasting as​ a​ means of​ improving health and losing weight. However,​ as​ beneficial as​ this method can be,​ being radical in​ nature,​ the​ use of​ fasting should be approached with care.

Though fasting is​ by far a​ greater cure of​ our ills-both physical and mental-than all of​ the​ drugs of​ the​ medical fraternity combined,​ for weight loss or​ for anything it​ may be used for,​ one has to​ be aware of​ certain criteria to​ achieve success with its use.

These include the​ types of​ fasts one can use,​ how long to​ fast,​ when to​ fast and how to​ come off of​ a​ fast.

Friends,​ there are several types of​ fasts that can be beneficial for weight loss.

1. the​ complete water fast: This,​ admittedly,​ should be conducted with extreme caution or​ in​ a​ specialized sanitarium if​ undertaken more than 3 days.
2. the​ Juice Fast: This is​ much easier for the​ general populace and can be undergone as​ long as​ you feel like it.
3. the​ Fruit Fast: This,​ well,​ is​ really not a​ fast per se…but when one lives exclusively on​ SEASONAL ORGANIC fruits for days on​ end…meaning mono meals (2 at​ the​ most ) of​ only one kind of​ fruit say Apples in​ Fall,​ Melons in​ summer for a​ week plus,​ you will be bound to​ see the​ benefits.

The second and third choices are by far my personal recommendations for those seeking to​ lose weight through fasting.

How to​ Fast

Being far-reaching in​ nature,​ fasting must be undertaken with care,​ however from my experience with it,​ here are a​ few tips to​ hopefully get you started.

1. Prepare yourself for a​ fast by gradually tapering off of​ acid-forming aka “junk foods and commence to​ consuming raw and cooked fruits and veggies to​ begin a​ milder cleansing process as​ these items are the​ best intestinal brooms for the​ colon.
2. Every now and again,​ 3 hours after supper and say an​ hour or​ so before retiring to​ sleep,​ drink an​ herbal tea laxative such as​ “Smooth Move Herbal Tea” during this preparatory stage.
3. Drink 1-2 quarts of​ unflavored lemonade in​ the​ mornings to​ balance the​ chemical reactions within the​ body and to​ restore it​ to​ an​ alkaline state.
4. Be mentally prepared for the​ task ahead of​ fasting.
5. Take things a​ little easier while fasting or​ on​ a​ mono-diet of​ fruit.
6. Avoid using microwaves at​ all costs-can’t go into detail as​ that is​ another subject,​ however,​ TRUST me. You want to​ exclude the​ use of​ this so-called convenience device not only while fasting put permanently.
7. Taper off a​ water fast by using the​ second type (juice fasting) for a​ few days,​ then gradually going to​ the​ third (mono-fruit fasting),​ then afterwards you could (like I do most of​ the​ time) simply stick to​ tons of​ fruit as​ the​ core of​ your diet or​ include properly cooked roots,​ steamed or​ raw leafy vegetables.

Whatever you do,​ just please don’t go back to​ eating the​ old junk stuff. to​ explain why in​ a​ nutshell,​ here are two quotes: “You are what you eat” and “Let your foods be your medicine…”

I really think options 2 and especially 3 (in regards to​ the​ types of​ a​ fast) are quite easy for any and everyone to​ do. So why not give it​ a​ shot? I can confidently say fasting,​ when used properly,​ will not only make you lose the​ excess pounds,​ but you’d also be well on​ your way to​ a​ cleaner,​ better,​ healthier and happier you in​ no time.

it​ may come across as​ a​ huge sacrifice however,​ when you see the​ results,​ you sure will be glad you did it.

Here’s to​ your health and happiness.
