In this video we’re talking about how to begin
a water fast.
This is really important because a lot of
people want to go into a 3 day water fasts
or a 7 day water fast and they just want to
jump right into it.
But the truth is that there’s many things
that you can do in order to make this whole
process much easier for you.
Now all the strategies that I’m going to talk
about and here, what I recommend is that you
implement them for 1 week leading up to your
3 day or 7 day water fast.
So let’s go ahead and jump right into intermittent
Intermittent fasting if you’re not familiar
with it is when you fast for 16 hours and
you eat within an 8 hour period.
Doing intermittent fasting for 1 week prior
to your water fast is really going to set
your physiology up to really understand what’s
happening when you jump into that 3 or 7 day
Because as a result of doing the intermittent
fasting you’re going to drop your insulin
You’re going to decrease your blood sugar
in a big way.
And you’re also going to just prepare yourself
Because if you’re not someone who’s used to
fasting at all jumping into a 3 or 7 day water
fast mentally can be a little bit challenging.
So the intermittent fasting is very powerful.
Now the other thing I want you to focus on
during the intermittent fasting is to eat
2 meals and that’s it ok, with no snacking.
Now I know many of you think well I don’t
snack or that’s not me.
But we’re all guilty of walking to the kitchen
and grabbing a piece of fruit or maybe grabbing
a handful of almonds or something along those
lines that we don’t even really think much
But what it does is it raises up our insulin
levels, raises up our blood sugar and as a
result it messes with our fast.
So once again we’re really trying to prepare
our body for that fast.
So doing intermittent fasting with two meals
in simply two meals without any snacking in
between is going to be really powerful.
Now the other thing that we want to talk about
is drink water ok.
During this one week, we really want to focus
on only drinking water.
Because imagine once we do those three day
fast or the 7 day fast that’s all we’re drinking.
So stay away from sugary drinks like kombucha.
Stay away from excessive amounts of coffee
That’s also going to be very important,
because when you do your three or seven-day
fast, what happens if you’ve been drinking
a lot of coffee and you go completely off
that coffee, well you’re going to have a caffeine
And you’re not going to feel very good.
So make sure that you’re taking your coffee
and really bringing it down to a very low
level during this time and sticking to just
Now drinking water is important too because
you know if you’re someone who’s drinking
like a kombucha you’re also going to spike
up those insulin levels and that blood sugar
So back to the no snacking thing.
We want to keep our blood sugar and our insulin
low between those two intermittent fasting
So no snacking and stick to water.
Last thing that’s going to be very powerful
is following a ketogenic diet for that one
week leading up to it.
Because if we can get our body into a fat-burning
state before we start that fast it’s going
to be so much easier to adapt.
If we can already have our body transform
from sugar burning to fat burning then what
we’re going to find is that during that water
fast it’s going to be so much easier there’sSgoing
to be way less crashes, you’re going to have
way more energy and you’re going to feel so
If you want to learn how to get in ketosis
super fast check out a video I did on that.
Because I give you multiple strategies on
how to jump into that ketogenic state in a
very short period of time.
Now using this strategy right here for a 3
day water fast 7 day water fast is very powerful.
Now if you’re someone who is not ready to
jump into just a strict water fast.
Then what I recommend is you use the fasting
I also did a video teaching on the fasting
mimicking diet that you can check out.
And what that essentially is going to be is
something that, it’s a diet that is very low
in calories over a 5-day period.
You can still eat, but it’s just much easier
on the body.
And for someone who’s suffering from a condition,
someone who’s just isn’t quite ready to jump
into that water fast it’s going to be a much
easier route for you to take.
So other than that be sure to like this video
