When I fast I usually try for 24 hours for
spiritual and physical reasons
I find the best time is on your body's timeline
so in sinc with it.
Due to my age ,I find it easier to start my fast between noon
and 8:00 p.m.
Recently I tried the 8:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. the next day
It worked out really well for me, not everyone will be the same.

I have to be careful because sometimes I get low blood sugar,
so I take juice if I feel myself getting dizzy or really fainty tired.
But you need to do what is best for you're body.
You're body needs to get use to the idea so going for eg.30 percent of your day the first time seeing how you feel, keep a journal.

Then maybe the next month try 50 percent(eg. 12 hours) without food, drink if you're thirsty especially in this hot, hot weather, listen to the triggers your body makes.
Not a good idea to just do whole thing at once when beginning.

I try to fast once a month but if I'm sick or not feeling well, I wait
for a day when I feel pretty good.
Don't engorge the day before, this makes it worse and harder.
Also don't overeat after, start with good food but not too much.

After a fast I am so thankful for food and vedgetables, things just
seem to taste better.

Also ask your doctor for some tips if your body could take it, if you have any doubt. Also certain medical conditions and medication suggest that you not fast. So always be careful.

Oops I almost forgot...
After a fast (eg. the next day)
energy level can be quite low, don't have alot of
running around planned, it's like resetting your body,
give it time.

As I get older, my energy is less the next day.
Give you're body time to recover, read, exercise some
During this hot weather be really careful to hydrate.
If you are really active don't go out and do your usual
fast paced workout, take it down a pace(or a few paces)

but always do what's best for you
Over the week work up to the usual schedule
That's what I do and it works for me

well i'm taking the first few days easy until my system is used to it so i'm not even thinking about the gym until Thurs.......i feel clearer headed and more alert already though........ :D I'm mixing it up with juices and smoothies too so i get the fibre.....i've also got an amazing wee gadget called a yonanas which makes bananas into ice-cream without adding anything to them......it's like alchemy, absolutely briliant........lol..... :D

so far i've tried -

spinach, orange, apple and pink grapefruit juice

banana and strawberry smoothie

banana, spinach, strawberry and kiwi smoothie

and i can't praise that wee processor 'the genie' enough.........it's so handy and efficient........ :D

But my body can't digest
If I avoid canola
my system is gud
but adding bananas would
do more harm than gud
red licorice is gud
for some who run to the loo
but high in calories
