Types of Fasting - Which Way is Best For You

By Cameron Jakes

There are many different types of fasting. To begin we have:

1. Juice Fasting
2. Spiritual Fasting
3. Fasting To Lose Weight
4. Colon Cleansing Fasting
5. Liver Cleansing Fasting
6. Detoxification Fasting
7. Water Fasting

And the list goes on...

I have not actually done all of the various types of fasting. However, reading about the many benefits of various types of fasting to the body (and spirit) and how it is actually a cornerstone of healing (the natural way), has opened my mind to it. No wonder even some of the world's great spiritual leaders have taken to the different types of fasting.
Whatever types of fasting or frequency you choose to engage in, those who have journeyed down that path recommend starting slowly, and building up as you progress. Extra care is important because you would not want to jeopardize your health, even for the sake of rapid weight loss. Even if there are studies pointing out that human beings can live up to two-and-a-half months without food, most health care professionals do not recommend fasting that long. Fasting, as distinct from dieting, means that while the body subsists without food, it will systematically cleanse itself of everything except vital tissue.
When we talk about types of fasting, there is what is known as a total fast and partial fast. The different types of fasting may also be categorized by the type of food or liquids involved. There is the intense water fast, and the popular juice fast. Another type, which limits food intake to raw vegetables, fruits and salads also lead to less calorie consumption. Whatever types of fasting you set your heart and mind to, what is important is that it is not imposed on the body or forced just to adhere to external custom.

Juice Fasting Recipes To Detox Your Body
By James A. Penn

Juice fasting is becoming increasingly popular amongst health conscious individuals around the world. Juice fasting has been proven to eliminate harmful and poisonous toxins from out of the body and to leave the juice faster feeling, revitalised, rejuvenated and reinvigorated.

There are many fruits and vegetables that could be included in a juice fasting detoxification program. Some are more effective than others at clearing harmful toxins from your body, but some fruits and vegetables are more effective at achieving rapid weight loss. You need to decide what your main goal is for your juice fast before you begin to develop your own juice fasting recipes.

Here are a few juice fasting recipes that I consider to be some of the most effective (and some of the best tasting) recipes:

I call this one the ‘Brain Exciter’ as it really gets the brain pumping and fresh.

• 1 orange

• 1 pear

• 1 yam

• 1 grapefruit

• 1 apple

Peel the orange, the yam and the grapefruit. Cut everything into sections, juice and stimulate your brain with this juice!

I call this one ‘Energy Enhancer’ because it pumps your energy levels sky high immediately after drinking the juice.

• 2 yams

• 1 beet

• 1 slice onion

• 2 lemons

• 1 celery stalk

• 1 slice of ginger

Peel the yams and lemons, cut everything into sections to fit your juicer. Juice everything and enjoy.
Those are two juice fasting recipes you can begin to make now for your juice fasting detoxification program. Try them out and see if you feel revitalised, reinvigorated and rejuvenated and experience rapid weight loss.
