To ensure you give your body the best chance of cleansing via fasting – complete or intermittent – it is ideal if you do not consume animal products, cheese, milk, nuts, refined sugar, grains, breads, caffeine and alcohol the day before you commence (as a minimum).
Consume only raw, steamed or sauteed veg and fruit. Herbal teas are fine.
To make the fast run without interruption – especially if it is your first time – it is good to minimize scheduling of work or appointments.
Post fast is probably the most challenging – the temptation to go back to eating how you were is huge! Dont pig out and ruin all the hard work your body has put in – be prepared! Being prepared means have the right food ready:…follow the rules that you did before the fast. From here gradually add dairy, nuts and animal products.
