Today's tip #28 from "30 Quick Tips for Better Health" by Don Verhulst, MD., Practice Fasting. Again, this is some pretty great stuff. Did you know that fasting at least once a week can really improve your health and reduce the amount of fat cells in your body? When you fast, your body gets hungry or stressed. This causes the body to release the cholesterol so that your body uses the fat for fuel instead of glucose. How amazing is that....you are literally getting rid of the fat cells in your body. Also, fasting helps your health and your heart. When you fast, you are cutting down the risk of coronary heart disease and diabetes, while lowering the cholesterol levels in your body. I am so grateful that I have found this book and shared it with you the way I have. This book really allows us to take one tip at a time and let it really sink in. So however we are making changes in our bodies, we can really do it one day at a time. For my personally, it is sinking in and I am actually implementing the tips. Maybe that is why my body is really feeling clean inside. I really do hope these tips are helping you as well. I have been finding that I share these tips with my friends in conversations, along with the patients I serve a work. I am able to understand the concept and share it with you and others. Back to fasting...you can start with one meal, and then go to two meals, then building up to 24 hours. You drink as much water as you can...if you need a little fruit or vegetable juice that would be okay. Make sure your juice is pure and not from concentrate. Pick a day it will work for you best. Not only are we going to have slimmer bodies, our bodies will be very healthy and able to live a long active life.
There it is my friends. I am so grateful to be able to share all that I am learning and really put the tips into play in my life. I am really finding, the more I am staying on track effort, the better and more confident I am feeling about myself. Isn't what this is all about...helping us to look and feel confident!!! WE are ON TRACK!!! You should all be acknowledging yourselves. You are all doing FANTASTIC!!!
I look forward to our chat tomorrow. Have a great Sunday!!! And let's start fasting for your health and our bodies.
