I get a lot of questions asking me if it;s alright if someone is underweight to do a fast, or if someone is sick and on medication, etc.. So today I go through when it’s appropriate and not appropriate to fast.
Since I address the question of being underweight and fasting, I also talk about how juice fasting/feasting can actually help many people who are actually trying to gain weight!! Yes, you are reading this correctly!! Many people who try to gain weight and no matter how much they eat, don’t gain a pound. The reason is because their digestive system is compromised and maybe even damaged from allergenic food. Juice fast/feasting can really help to heal a digestive system and help the body absorb nutrition properly.
Today is the last of March’s10 Day Juice Fasting Program. The juice fasters have been doing so well and recently there has been much talk in the forum about when is the appropriate time to break a fast. I always find this to be an individual decision and there is no formula as to how long someone should fast– it’s personal, but what I have noticed is the body, mind, emotions and even spirit, give certain clues as to when it’s time to break a fast.

I received a few emails asking me if fasting on juice or water will put people in starvation mode and therefore after the fast, will they regain all the weight back and gain more? If done correctly, No!! The first thing I want to emphasize is that unless you are doing a water fast for a real long time and have very little body fat, you actually can’t put yourself in starvation mode. As for slowing the metabolism when fasting, yes the fasting does slow your metabolism, put its not permanent, once you re-introducing solid food correctly into your diet, your metabolism will start increasing and get back to normal. Many people have notice the great benefit of fasting is that it decreases their appetite and they become much more conscious of what and how much they are eating. I have so many clients that after a fast, actually continue losing weight because they don’t need to be eating as much as they did before!
