Before the Fast
Preparing For the Fast:
*On the day before (If you want) it will be helpful to prepare your body by eating only fruits and vegetables
*Do not take vitamins or supplements
*If you have an existing condition it might be a good idea to do some further research on what you can expect as well as possible medical advice.
*Now would be the time to determine what type and for how long you will fast. It is good to start off during a time that you have low activity. For first time fasters it might be a good idea to start on a weekend, so you can rest whenever you need to.
*It is good to have mild exercise and movements with short walks to keep the lymphatic fluid moving and to keep the vascular system working.
*The amount of exercise is really dependant on your existing condition and how you feel that day. Listen to your body. Try no to over do it because you might become weak for the next few days.
*If you experience energy loss, limit yourself to stretching exercises, light walking, or deep breathing.
