View Full Version : Fasting On The Weekends

Hi all....it`s been over 6 months since i fasted and i really miss how good it made me feel afterwards. Due to the fact that i`ve been eating SAD over the holidays, i wanted to get myself back on track. With the hectic schedule that i have at work it would be hard to fast at that time. My question is, can i get the same benefits fasting fri sat and sun, compared to the whole 7 days a week?

There are always benefits to fasting. Even if you just do it one day a week ~ any break we give our digestion is good IMHO. :)

yea ive been doing that same thing for the past month now... just on sat and sunday tho... it is good for you but I feel like just when monday morning comes and I break my fast its like my body is just then really starting to get clean and ready for a long fast but then i eat.. the reason for this is because the body goes thru differnet stages during fasting.. and theh first stage is over in the first 2 or 3 dayz.. it is deffinetly better than no fast tho.. for the new year im doing a 10-20 day fast.. havent made up my mind yet on how long... good luck fasting

Fasting is great for the body, mind and spirit. I cannot think of his name but there was someone on this site who fasted on the weekends for some time and shared his experiences.
I'm also doing a fast for a while in the new year. I'm supposedly fasting at the moment but I really don't consider this period fasting because I have been so distracted and stressed out lately..my focus is not what it usually is and so I know I need to refocus and plan on fasting in the new year.

thanks you guys for the advice! I`m gonna start a juice fast tommorow....
Simone, there is a great thread on here "December Juice Fast/Feast" (or a similar name) where you can get support from others that are fasting at the same time. I just did a 2-day fast, and it was so helpful to do in general and it was definitely helpful to have support! :)
