This next week I am planning to do a Grape Fast. A Grape Fast for detox is a great way to get the old crud out while flushing the body with life giving healing nutrition. It involves eating nothing but grapes and drinking nothing but water or grape juice for several days at a time. Grapes also have cancer fighting properties and are an excellent weight loss food.
Doing a Simple Grape Fast:
A grape fast can continue for several days or several weeks depending on how long you want to carry on. A grape fast is done by consuming grapes for twelve hour periods followed by twelve hours of water fasting. Consume the grapes gradually in small amounts over each twelve hour period. You are not eating a large meal but constantly ingesting the grapes. For the next twelve hour period, you should eat nothing, drinking only water. I normally will plan to fast for five days at a time, deciding if I want to continue or stop at the end of each five day period.
What is the best grape for fasting?
Any grape will do as all grapes provide excellent nutrition to detox the body. The very best grapes are purple grapes. They contain the most helpful ingredients for weight loss, detox and fighting cancer. Try to get organic grapes if possible. The pesticide content in other grapes can be a problem considering the large amount of grapes you will be consuming. Juice them yourself if possible, include the seeds and skin.
How does a grape fast work?
Purple grapes and particularly grape seeds; contain numerous detox, cancer fighting and cleansing compounds which will flush toxins from your system. These include ingredients that can cleanse and detoxify the liver and kidneys. This is why a grape fast is ideal for weight loss and detox. When using a grape fast for cancer, the idea is to starve your body for twelve hours to fool cancer cells into rapidly consuming certain compounds from the grapes to fight the cancer.
Is there any danger involved in a grape fast?
A grape fast, in and of itself, poses no danger. Use Echinacea daily to avoid feeling weak from the toxins being flushed out. Once they are gone you will be revitalized like never before.
