In this video we are talking about a three
day water fast.
This is actually a really cool topic because
it is actually one of my favorite fast to
You have heard me talk about doing a 3 day
bone broth fast, which I like too but a 3
day water fast is great.
It’s very doable, it’s something that
is not hard to do and when I talk about this
3 day fast, I am referring to a 36 hour fast.
So you are fasting 3 consecutive days in a
The number one reason I like it is out of
When you are fasting, it is a really good
idea to make sure you are not really pushing
your body hard.
It is time to let your body rest a bit, time
for your body to restore and when you are
fasting you don’t want to be pushing your
body to the limit and hitting hard exercises
and working long hours.
That is not what you want to be doing.
The reason it works so well out of convenience
is because i like to jump into a 3 day fast
on a Friday, fast Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Now when you go into a 3 day fast typically
the first day is not bad.
You have a lot more energy, Friday you are
going to have enough energy to get through
your work day.
Come Saturday you are going to have a little
bit more of a depleted energy.
So the good knows is that is a Saturday and
you are not working on Saturday, you have
the opportunity to rest a little bit, take
a nap whatever you need to do.
Same on Sunday, usually on the third day your
energy starts to creep back up a little bit.
The good news is if on Sunday you have the
opportunity to rest, you can and you can break
that fast on Sunday night.
Once again that is great because two of the
days you were off, you were resting, you weren’t
Then going back into your work schedule on
Monday, if that is how your work schedule
is then you are able to eat and have energy
to get through the week.
Out of convenience that is why I really love
the 3 day fast.
Now, let’s jump into a couple details of it.
The first one is ketosis, when you are going
into a 3 day fast, 4 day fast, or even a 7
day fast whatever have you, it is always best
to go into it in a state of ketosis.
So it’s best to prep yourself for going into
the fast so being ketosis is beneficial so
you are not changing from fat burning to,
sorry not sugar burning to fat burning during
What that will allow you to do is not have
a big crash, okay.
Being in a state of ketosis before going into
a 3 day fast is a really great way to prep
yourself for it.
The next big question is what kind of water
can I drink?
Flavored water, sparkling water, mineral water?
So here is the deal, flavored water will likely
make you hungry.
So i don’t ever recommend drinking flavored
Sparkling water is typically just fine, the
other thing that is great too is drinking
a sparkling mineral water or just a mineral
water in general.
And the way you can drink mineral water is
simply by taking a cup of water and actually
here is a little trick.
You take a cup of water, put a little sea
salt in it, mix it up and drink that.
That will replace your electrolytes, help
you feel alot better, help energize you a
bit and that will be great.
When it comes to the type of water i also
like using the distilled water.
Distilled water is pure H2O, we know it is
chemical free, toxin free, we know that it
is pure H2O.
That is why they use it in labs, so distilled
water is always a great resource for pure
Moving on to supplements over here.
A Lot of people ask me do I take supplements
during this time.
When you are fasting it’s not really the
time to focus on your supplements because
you have all this other time to take supplements,
we really want the body to do its thing.
Fasting is a time to detox, heal and do its
thing and supplements aren’t really necessary
I recommend on a 3 day water fast you withhold
the supplements and focus on that either prior
or after the fast.
The next big question I always get is medication.
Should I continue taking them or should I
not and that is a topic you should discuss
with your doctor and come up with a plan with
your doctor as to how you should navigate
a fast while on your medications.
You know as a rule of thumb you should never
just go off a medication that you are on without
talking to your doctor.
So work with your doctor on how you should
navigate a fast along with your medications.
Now last topic is breaking the fast.
I think this is very important, I think breaking
the fast is as important as the fast itself.
So, when it comes to breaking your fast it’s
important that you do it correctly.
Most people are very hungry at that point,
so they want to slam themselves with a big
You should actually eat very lightly, you
should start with steamed vegetables and so
that your body is able to break those down
I also like to have a bone broth during that
time, I also recommend probiotic rich foods.
That is a really great way to make sure you
are getting lots of probiotics reseeding the
gut with probiotics during that time, home
making some probiotic rich foods like sauerkraut
and kimchi, kimchi is a really great way to
do that and so come off that fast very gently,
very lightly, steamed vegetables, probiotic
enriched foods, and then you are going to
really see a lot of great results with a 3
day water fast.
