Breaking your fast
It’s important to know what you should eat to break your fast. You may feel inclined to eat significant amounts of food to make up for the fast, but this is counterproductive to your success. That is why it’s important to be gentle on your body as you ease out of your fast and into your eating phase.
Make sure you begin with small quantities that can easily be digested. You want to choose high nutrition foods that contain healthy fats and protein to give your body the energy it needs after a fast.
Food options to explore:
- Fermented foods
- Dried fruits and vegetables
If you can choose organic options for all of the above - do. This will provide you with the most health benefits during your fast.
How to break your fast:
Breaking your fast with your protein of choice would be the ideal choice. This is because, some people, if they choose to break their fast with vegetables high in fibers, they may experience bloating. This is also true for foods high in sugar or fat, that can shock your system and likely make you become bloated or experience discomfort. Be mindful of the foods you choose and ensure you’re nourishing your body as much as possible during the period you can eat.
It’s highly advised to take supplements when you’re fasting. This ensures your body has all the nutrients it needs, even when you’re not taking in foods. Our supplements help with reducing hunger, and are made with nutritious extracts. They are 100% natural and are created specifically for people who fast.
Growing your own vegetables
If you want to take your health into your own hands, growing your own fruits and vegetables can be the most beneficial way to do it. That’s how you’ll know that no harmful pesticides or chemicals are lurking in your foods.
Additionally, planting and growing your own crops can be hugely therapeutic, it could even be part of your meditative practice during long periods of fasting. Having hobbies that bring you joy can be hugely beneficial to your success in fasting.
