About Fasting

When done properly, a fast can give you a good head start on your weight loss plan. Some benefits of fasting are:
  • With fasting, you''re pretty well guaranteed to lose some weight
  • You can begin to see results quite quickly, which can help with motivation
  • It can cleanse the system and aid in the removal of toxins from the body
  • Fasting can help to clear up skin problems and blemishes
  • Fasting has been used for centuries as a means of spritual rejuvenation
There are many different types of fast, most involve drinking juices of some sort to supply the body with some vitamins and minerals. It''s not quite as simple as "just don''t eat!" - easing into and out of the fast (breaking the fast) properly is important in order to get the most out of it. There are many books available that extol and explain the benefits of fasting, and provide detailed instructions and advice on how to go about it. Here are our recommended fasting books.
Note: Be sure to consult with your doctor before undertaking a lengthy fast.
