If you want to dramatically stimulate your body’s own power to heal itself, boost your energy level, melt away those extra pounds, feel years younger and bring the ageing process to a stop, then fasting is an inexpensive, quick and easy way to get you there.
Imagine you are at work, it’s Monday morning and you just clocked in. You are ready for what appears to be a regular 8 hour work day. Your boss tells you John just called in sick, he hands you a huge work load and asks you to cover for John and reminds you that you need to hand in the sales report, which of course you haven’t even started it yet.
You feel overloaded, you got more work that you can handle in your 8 hour day, more than is comfortable and appropriate for your job title and salary. You’re under stress, but you tell yourself you will cope, you have to. You need to make decisions. You take care of whats important and urgent and set aside those tasks that can wait for later.
This is exactly how your body feels when you over indulge in excess food on a continuous basis. It creates a burden for your body.
When your body most handle more than what is comfortable and appropriate for it, it will suffer. Your body will get exhausted and overworked and will start to postpone tasks for another day. And more work is dump with every meal and every snack, whether it’s ready or not.
So fasting is like a mini vacation for your under-appreciated overworked body.
What Fasting Does To Your Body?
While fasting your body will rest from the constant bombarding of food intake. You see, people associate food with energy, as if eating could give you more energy, but in reality is the other way around, the food we eat actually requires energy. Approximately 65% of the body’s energy must be used to digest food after a heavy meal.
During a fast, our body will take advantage of this time and energy to clean itself. The energy that once was used to digest the food will now be diverted to healing and restoration of the body.
Your body knows how to heal itself, fasting will just pave the way for healing to occur.
