Is it Effective? Water Fasting 24 Hours To Detoxify Weight Loss
Is itEffective? Water Fasting 24 Hours To Detoxify Weight Loss - Many people I talk to want to fast, but believe that unless they do it for three, seven or more days - Not even there to do Water Fasting. Well, I'm here to tell you that nothing is further from the truth.
Water Fasting even for ONE day can help you begin to benefit from this life-saving practice - and give you a real experience of how your body reacts when you don't eat solid food. Water fasting can do wonders for your digestive system.
To be sure, the digestive system is very grateful when given the opportunity to take a break from the digestive process which is often endless. When given this pause, the body can shift its focus to heal other organs and areas that may be painful - not to mention cleansing the colon which is facilitated by fasting.
Water fasting one day is done methodically and regularly giving a type of rest that can dramatically help your digestive system and overall health. One day fasting can help you lose weight continuously. This method is safe because you don't have to start a tiring exercise program, or take any medication to get the benefits of weight loss and detoxification.
Water fasting for a full 24 hour cycle once a week or once every two weeks is definitely a way to do it if you are new to this practice. Try it once and success will increase your confidence and often lead you to fast longer.
That's how it is with me.
The following is a method of doing water fasting one day:
* Decide on certain days for the 24-hour cycle not to eat solid food.
* When Hunger comes, take a Big Glass and drink
* You can start, say, by eating your last meal at 8 pm and then go to bed, fast the next day, and break the fast at 8 pm.
Successful fasting has three stages:
- Actual fasting, and
Each of these stages is important.
Prepare to fast
It is very important for you to prepare yourself mentally and physically before fasting or you will find it difficult to leave one day without food. Simple mental preparation, but very important.
* The night before fasting makes a firm resolution that you will not eat no matter how much hunger strikes.
* Taking a firm stance helps you stick to your decision.
* Strong determination will give you strength when you are tempted to give up.
Physical preparation is also very important.
The day before you fast, prepare your body by eating normal amounts of food.
* Don't eat too much thinking that you are storing food for fasting. This will cause cramps that are very uncomfortable and hunger will be stronger than it should be.
During the fasting period, it is best to limit yourself to light physical tasks and concentrate as much as possible on introspection and spirituality. Use this fasting period constructively. Meditate on the scriptures, pray or read inspirational books - take the time to check where you are in life, and what areas you want to improve.
This can be spiritual, mental, physical, social and even financial. It is often helpful to write a list of problems that you want to solve and then use the fasting time to pray and meditate to receive inspiration and guidance. * If you cannot take this "break time" because of active work or family schedules, then continue your business but maintain an "internal" attitude of prayer, meditation, and contemplation.
The way I achieve it is not to give my time to spend my thoughts, but, more precisely, I make a point of switching from time to time - focusing only on what I do one second, one minute at a time. You will be surprised how often we live our days
activities that only think of the future or are obsessed with the past. This negates now and can make us in a state of confusion, stress, and anxiety.
Breaking the fast
The benefits of fasting can be truly enjoyed only if you break your fast the right way. Don't do it like I did at first and rest fast with a full meal. You can experience abdominal cramps and, in some cases, become seriously ill. In the morning or evening after fasting, break it by drinking lemon juice or grape juice diluted with water.
Drinking lemon juice with a little salt helps remove toxins from your digestive system. Wait for about four hours and then eat a light soup or salad with lime. Please - NO heavy bandages at this time! Four hours after that you can eat a little poultry, salad, and maybe steamed vegetables or brown rice.
The next day you can continue your routine eating habits. Of course, the fasting period will hopefully give you time to reflect on how you eat. It is important to realize that fasting only to return to destructive food will limit its benefits. After breaking the fast, make a resolution that you will start away from destructive eating.
“This is not done in a day, and you might stumble a lot - but no matter what, keep going and never give up! Periodic fasting as described here is clearly one of the elements of a balanced and sustainable weight loss program.”
