Another important to ponder on is fasting healthy for our bodies, and can fast give people long lasting weight loss? Well, let me explain this fasting for weight loss solution, and you will be able to determine for yourself if it is the right choice for you.
Fasting Being Successful!
Clearly, fasting is an effective way to lose unnecessary body fat, but once the fat has melted away restoring a youthful physique, how do we keep it off? Fasting is an exhilarating way to begin a healthy diet, excess body fat quickly drops, bathroom mirror nodding approval, maybe for the first time in years.
Overeating or eating too fast, feeding cravings and emotions not hunger, eating calorie-concentrated foods with lack of physical activity, all lead to unwanted weight-gain. Fasting I believe in my experiences builds self-control, and that control gives you a life without worry, and guilt that comes with many eating disorders.
Fasting comes in many forms like juicing, herbs, cleansing, fruits, supplements, etc. but the most popular would have to be juicing and herbs.
Side Effects of Fasting!
Side effects of fasting are unless the fast is a very short term; you can end up with low energy, weakness, and lightheadedness, without any significant weight loss. Furthermore, the absence of carbohydrates may lead to ketosis – a dangerous build-up of ketones that pressurizes the kidneys. This is unhealthy and can be dangerous.
If you fast, you may drop pounds, but some of that weight will be muscle, and most of it will be water. You need to eat protein foods such as lean meat, eggs, low-fat or fat-free milk, or legumes (beans and peas), or you’ll be thin and flabby, not thin and shapely.
Don’t fast for long periods of time as you double the workload of your kidneys and you train your body to preferentially store fat. Fasting has its pro and cons like everything in this world but going too long without a balanced diet can lead to you losing valuable fat burning enzymes which keeps our bodies in balance. If you still want to go on a fast, here are some tips that will help you succeed. Here are a few tips:
1. Prepare yourself for a fast by gradually tapering off of acid-forming aka “junk foods and commence to consuming raw and cooked fruits and veggies to begin a milder cleansing process as these items are the best intestinal brooms for the colon. 2. Every now and again, 3 hours after supper and say an hour or so before retiring to sleep, drink an herbal tea laxative such as “Smooth Move Herbal Tea” during this preparatory stage. 3. Drink 1-2 quarts of unflavored lemonade in the mornings to balance the chemical reactions within the body and to restore it to an alkaline state. 4. Be mentally prepared for the task ahead of fasting. 5. Take things a little easier while fasting or on a mono-diet of fruit. 6. Avoid using microwaves at all costs
