Fasting is a willing abstinence or reduction from some or all food, drink, or both, for a period of time. An absolute fast (dry fasting) is normally defined as abstinence from all food and liquid for a defined period, usually a period of 24 hours, or a number of days.

                                                          Points to remember :

1] Fasting [ cleansing] from toxins starts from the top down,  that’s why you may get a headache.  If the headache gets “severe” stop the fast .
2] Don’t fast if on medications .

3] Don’t exercise “intensely” during a fast .
4] Don’t eat foods that take longer to digest like red meat [ right after] breaking the fast . Go with fruits/ veg 1st
5] Don’t fast if you have serious health problems . Eat right for like a year [ Lots of  spring water, whole grains , fruit /veg ]  then start fasting .
6] Don’t fast too much,  absolute fast [ no food or water]  no more than 3 days consecutively  . Esth 4 : 16 [Niv] bible .
7] A real good idea is right before you fast , common sense , drink a good bit of water , especially in the summer , if your doing a complete fast no food or water .

                                                                Thoughts :

  • The truest fast which is most biblical is no food or water for a 24 hr period  or longer  Est 4 : 15, 16 , Acts 9 : 9 , Ez 10 : 6 , Ex 34 : 28 [ Niv] bible usually evening to evening or sunset to sunset  .  
  • You can start out fasting like 8 hrs then say 16 then 24 no food or water
  • It’s great to fast 1 day a month to clean out toxins and help the bowels catch up .
  • You will probable move your bowels at least one time during fasts of one full day 24 hrs,  or longer , which is great,  that means your bowels are catching up to what you have digested .
  • Do” not” try Moses’s fast Ex 34 : 28 that was by  upernatural aid .
  • Fasting without water is “way harder” because the body is made up of like 65% water .
  •  In general you can go only about 5  to 7 days without a drop of water before death , some people can go longer,  everyone is different .
  • You can go roughly  “weeks” without food depending on how much body fat one has, it can vary greatly
  •  A burlesque on fasting is when people just drink juices ,  fruit /veg . They go like a month without solid food or longer . 

          It’s dangerous to fast a lot if you had been eating wrong for a long time years and years , lots of junk food . What Happens is , you release too many toxins too fast into the blood stream which is dangerous . Just start out eating real healthy as I mentioned above lots of spring water , whole grains , fruit / veg and maybe fast 1 day a month just water or no water or food for like at least 1 yr or even two  .

Also , do not go right into cleanses when you get all excited about cleaning out your body after eating wrong or unhealthy for years , wait at least 2yrs just eating right maybe fasting 1 day a month .

 

Be careful of juice fasting  frequently for long periods its way overrated and can ruin one’s health . I ran into a friend who knew one of my best friends , and he said that he told him he ruined his health juice fasting .
