Try Periodic Food Fasting Detox

Fasting or the abstinence from food is as old as mankind is. In many religions, fasting is a ritual practiced on a specific day.

At a physiological level, fasting helps

1. Rest the digestive system

2. Cleans and detoxifies the body

3. Aid weight loss


Types of fasting

As per, following are the different types of fasting:

1. Dry fasting: Complete foregoing of food

2. Liquid fasting: Foregoing of solid food and consumption limited to water or juice

3. Partial fasting or selective fasting: Foregoing of certain types of food


How to fast

1. Select which fast will be beneficial to you. If you are fasting for the first time, start with partial fasting.

2. Determine how long will you fast. Again if you are fasting for the first time, try fasting only for half a day and gradually increase the duration to a single day of fasting over a few months.

3. Beware that people can die due to lack of food. So don’t fast for a long period of time.

4. During fasting, if you feel dizzy, stop fasting and have water and food.
