More fasting tips:
-After you have fasted, when you start to eat normally try very hard not to gorge yourself on anything. Try to eat
slowly and chew all your food. Wait 20 minutes to see if you are still hungry. The calories you take in directly after
your fast will stay with you a lot longer than those acquired when your metabolism is up. Also, you could
experience pain and become very ill if you start eating again to quickly and in to large of an amount for your now

Water of course is so important. We absolutely must drink water to survive, and it has zero calories, so there’s no
excuse to not drink it. As we typically get much of our water content through foods, when we reduce food intake
we begin to dehydrate ourselves, which is dangerous. Also, cold water chills the body and may raise metabolism
to get warm again.
Vitamins and Minerals are essential for optimal weight loss and well-being. We must have these, too, to survive
and so again there is no excuse to not take at least a basic daily multivitamin. Try taking some supplements to
keep yourself healthy.
Understand yourself. Learn what you need, and when, and why. Everyone is unique and there are no hard-and-
fast universally applicable laws. Our bodies are very good at telling us what we need, and knowing what you need
gives control over how you choose to satisfy those needs. Keep a diary of your food intake. This will make it
easier to figure out if you are hungry or just bored and eating to fill some void. Get plenty of sleep. Steal naps
whenever you can and rest when you need to rest
Sleep deprivation increases appetite and makes you age faster. It is always recommended to get at the minimum
6hours of sleep a night every night to lose weight faster.
You’ll lose pounds faster if you have a fast metabolism and slower if you have a slower metabolism. On average,
fasts allow you to lose 1-2 lbs per day. Some experience more around 3-5 lbs per day. You’ll lose the most and the
quickest during the beginning of your fast.
