Eat smaller meals before starting a fast. Avoid high-fat and sugary foods and try to eliminate alcohol, coffee, and other stimulants. Eat fruit and vegetables. Prepare your mind: set your objective, read about detox, and talk to people who have done it. Also, let people know you are doing it. Support is always great, and the more the support, the least amount of obstacles. At the Yoga Retreat, we provide you with all the healthy nourishing liquids/foods you need.
During your detox/ fasting no food at all is the best policy. This means no chewing of anything. You should take as much fluids as possible as to not shock your body, and replace essential minerals. During the detox, most people expect to remove and clear all types of buildups and blockages. You will be releasing blockages on a physical, mental, and emotional level. For some people, this emotional stirring up and clearing can sometimes be negative. Please try not to be influenced by other people. Surrender to your emotions and honor them as this is one of the greatest benefits of detox. You should also get plenty of rest/sleep during your detox. Daily exercise is very important for weight loss and release of toxins.
As critical as the detox is itself, these are the days when you reintroduce solids into your system. Be patient and be aware. Stay positive and stay clear. This is the time of reflection and self-discovery. Your body will be more sensitive than ever before and it is the perfect time to start listening seriously and identify what things suit your body and what does not suit it so well.
