View Full Version : question about fasting

i'm wanting to do a fast on green smoothies and i don't know if i should include my coconut oil consumption while doing this smoothie fast. also, i normally put in about 1 tablespoon of udo's oil blend in my daily smoothies, and am wondering if i should continue to do that as well, or should i take that out? i 2 tablespoons of coconut oil daily mixed in with some stevia and water, so should i stop that? what are some thoughts, opinions and ideas? this will be the first time i've ever fasted and i figured green smoothies would be a good idea and then hopefully work my way into juice fasts or the MC fast sometime in the future. i haven't been hungry at all lately so i figured this is my body telling me its a good time to fast. thanks for the help.

Day 3 of my first juice fast...have done the MC two years ago. It really depends on what you want to do. Right now I feel like just doing GS's & juice. Do know that I have been fully checked out by a doctor prior to this so I know exactly how healthy I already am. My tongue is coated turns from white, to green, to orange (from carrots), was absolutely exhausted first two days. Just do the research online and find out what you feel like doing. I tried going into the juice section, but there are not as many people on there as there are here and I am needing a little more support...fighting thoughts of wanting to stop all the cleansing ie: toxins being flushed out of my cells and I do not want to stop this process...I want to continue. Personally I think a fast should be as simple as possible. Good luck. Would love to hear how it is going for you.

I am going to be doing a 3 day juice fast as well. I think I am going to use, juice, green smoothies, & the MC concoction. I am glad someone else is starting this!

I have been. Today I had 1 tablespoon of Hemp Oil. I plan on having some Flax seed oil as well. I am doing it for the EFAs and the Omega 3s.
