What do you hope to accomplish from fasting? How much experience do you have going without solid food for extended periods of time? How clean is your current diet? There are many questions that need to be addressed before giving an absolute answer.
A seven day Water Fast
will be extremely difficult for most fasting novices to complete. A much better plan for those serious about beginning a lifestyle that includes regular fasting would be to start out by fasting on water only for one day a week.
The Master Cleanse
is not a true fast because substantial calories are consumed from the Maple syrup. However, The Master Cleanse
is a good method to use to get used to the idea of not eating, can do some superficial cleansing of the digestive system and liver, and can help build a certain amount of self discipline.
You might want to try your Liver Flush
before fasting for the first attempt. Besides a clear liver will be much better able to process toxins released by fasting. You can Liver Flush
every two to three weeks if you have a very congested liver, however once a month or less is adequate for most healthy people. Try to stay away from the salt water flush, even if you do the MAster Cleanse. This is a very harsh way to flush the intestines and is not always sucessful or safe. Enemas are much better, although you can do nothing at all and nature will take care of everything.
Whatever you decide to do, remember this is serious business. Fasting requires a lot of self disciplne and dedication. Your health and safety must be taken into consideration. While MC, Water Fasting
and Liver Flushing
all have a lot of good to offer, none of them are magic formulas that will instantly restore full health and solve all your problems. These cleanses must be done along with a dedication to changing your lifestyle to one of healthy eating, proper exercise programs and a positive mindset.
The best advice I can give is to determine what you need and want to accomplish and read and study before beginning any program.
