View Full Version : Info on fasting?
04-04-2009, 02:40 PM
The only fasting I really know anything about is where you just don't eat for a period of time & you drink water... I've done that before...
What are some good/reliable websites/books where I can find out more about fasting?... And what are the different kinds of fasts, and what are they used for? What do they do to your body? What can you expect when you are on one?.. Mine was religious... I didn't realize that it was beneficial to your body. How long do you fast for? and what determines the number of days that you fast? If you do a juice fast, what kind of juice do you drink? Can you mix juices? Why/Why not? Do you take any supplements ie: wheatgrass, spirulina, chlorella, etc?...

my favorite fasting authority , i wouldnt let the era he worked in make you think he didnt know what hes talking about . this guy over saw thousands of fasts in a completely natural healing method that doesnt have to be explained by modern day scientists / doctors . it just works , and thats recorded fact . and it dont cost anything :D
on length of fast , for me my first few fasts i could only get up to 3 days before weakness / light headedness would strike too much . but after about 5/6 fasts i got into fasting shape and have gotten up to 20 days so far , like one gets theirselves in shape running , its a long process if you want to get serious long term benefit . rather than process i should say habit , a very healthy though difficult to master habit . but master it and great health bennys are yours

I would like to try a three day fast but I am stuck on one big question. When I am out and about I all of a sudden get hungry and have to have something to eat immediately or I feel light headed. How do you go about your normal day and have access to juice when you need it? It seems like it would be hard strategically..:confused:
thanks for advice,

you can definitely do a 3 day water fast. I found that i could work fine the first 2 days, the night of the 3rd i was glad to be at home as you get lightheaded and weak and it's good to rest.

I'm interested in fasting, but I'm afraid of the effects. Can somebody explain how exactly this is beneficial? Is it basically flushing out the toxins/sediment, or is there more to it? I see that some people have commented that they felt "weak" or "lightheaded" after a few days... is there a safe method of fasting that does not eventually wreak havoc on the brain/body?
I'm sorry, but I am totally ignorant when it comes to this. I'm just curious.
