Should I Do a Practice Fast?
Would you recommend doing a shorter ‘practise fast’ before embarking on a 30 day juice fast? I’m slightly nervous about the detox symptoms. I’m 22 years old, 168cm tall and about 75kg. I’m also totally new to fasting. I’ve been reading through your website and have been inspired to try a juice fast.
The main reason for my fasting is weight loss before a trip home to see my family as well as trying to rid myself of a general ‘flat’, unmotivated, apathetic feeling I cant seem to shake. I’d also like to use the juice fast as an opportunity to quit smoking.
Great website. Thanks!
If you do not have any compulsive eating issues you can safely fast for 30 days on juice for a first fast. But doing a practice fast will teach you the difficulty of breaking a fast correctly and make sure that you can before doing a longer fast. A juice fasting can be a powerful motivator to quit smoking as you become very aware of the damage to your body and the cravings diminish.
