Why do an Extended Juice Fast?
An extended juice fast can be done for any number of great reasons. The longest one I’ve done lasted forty days and was all about losing weight. It worked; I lost 47 pounds in 37 days. The real key to losing weight this quickly and safely was drinking lots of water along with my daily supply of fresh juice. The days I did not keep up with my fluid intake the scales did not move downward the next morning.
Juice fasting while doing the Incurables Program for any major disease or condition will provide the body with the copious amounts of nutrients needed. Whether doing a bit of minor cleansing or clearing a major disease juice fasting while doing the flushing programs will bring the best results.
How To End an Extended Juice Fast
The real issue of an extended juice fast is not how long you continue juicing but how well you transition back to eating regular meals. A short juice fast of anywhere from two to seven days should be an easy two or three day transition back to eating cooked foods. Day one; eat only raw food. Consume only raw fruits & veggies. If this goes well on day two introduce a baked potato with the skin or cooked brown rice with steamed vegetables. Chew your food very well. Seldom are there issues coming back from a short juice fast.
On an extended juice fast lasting from ten to sixty days expect to spend 50% of the time of the juice fast gradually introducing raw and then cooked food back into your system. For an example coming off a twenty day juice fast will require ten days raw food. On the day the fast has ended eat only one raw food. You may eat as much of the food item chosen as desired. A good food to end a juice fast with would be apples. On day two choose another single food, maybe grapes. Day three try a combination of raw fruits or veggies. Continue consuming several glasses of fresh juice each day.
Why do Raw before Cooked?
The question arises, Why all the drama? What is wrong with stopping the fresh juices and making a big pot of pasta for dinner? Simply put your body will reject the cooked food if introduced too quickly. A system that has been using only fresh juices for an extended period of time will treat any cooked food as it would a poison. Either the meal will be vomited out or the bowels will become crampy and sick. It is important to ease back into cooked foods. Progress as quickly as your system allows, if you begin feeling poorly slow down, continue eating raw a few days longer.
