Re: Basic Fasting Help
I highly recommend that you get and read Ann Louise Gittleman's "FastTrack One-Day Detox Diet" before doing a fast, even for 1 day. Fasting releases toxins which can result in numerous side effects, and should be done with proper preparation and followup so you can avoid any negative reactions.
The Fast Track program has a prequel to get you ready, a special juice blend to drink on the day of your fast, and a sequal on how to re-introduce foods, along with good intestinal bacteria and fiber, without any negative symptoms.
I've done a 10-day water-only fast several years ago, but only after I did much reading on fasting. At the time, I wasn't aware of all the pitfalls and benefits that I am now, even tho I had read several books and knew a little of what to expect. With the knowledge I've since learned, I would have approached it much differently.
