Supplement manufacturers these days release all sorts of detox supplements that supposedly flush harmful toxins that have built up in your body as a result of years of poor dietary choices. Why waste your money on pricey supplements that may not even work when you can get the same benefits through an intermittent fast that costs you nothing? The body expends a great deal of energy on digestion. When you eat six meals a day on a daily basis, that is a lot of energy used that could have been used elsewhere. When you fast, your body suddenly has additional energy since it no longer has to work overtime to convert that cheeseburger you ate into usable energy. Your body now has the energy for functions that normally take a back seat, such as removing waste and toxins.
Many people actually report feeling “lighter” and refreshed after several weeks of fasting two to four times a week.This is due to the removal of bodily impurities that cause fatigue, lethargy, and memory fog. It’s important to note, however, that fasting taken to the extreme can actually have the opposite effect and inhibit the body’s ability to excrete waste. Much of the detoxification process is carried out by good bacteria in the colon and the mucous membranes that line the colon wall and prevent discarded waste from reentering the bloodstream and muscle tissue. When you go beyond an intermittent fast and go without food for consecutive days, you seriously deprive your body of vitamins and minerals needed for healthy colon function. We recommend a 14 to 16 hours fasting from dinner to lunch. Visit our YouTube channel for more videos and information.
