Q: Are there any benefits to fasting? Or is drinking optimal amounts of pure water sufficient to detoxify my body?

Drinking water on a very regular basis will help remove toxins effectively from your cells. However, fasting (which technically means ingesting only liquids for a period of time) is recommended a couple of times a year, and to help heal physical diseases and to give your body more time to heal and detoxify. There are so many different types of fasts. If you have not fasted before, three days would be ideal. Try a 3-day Greenergy fast.

Drink Greenergy in water three or 4 times during the day, and lots of water in between. You can also drink some herbal decaffeinated teas and pure, freshly prepared vegetable juices. Do not ingest solid foods. Even energy shakes, although liquids are not to be taken while fasting, because they contain proteins and fats that require digestion by the body. Try to avoid engaging in any major physical activity during the time. Walking is okay. Allow your body to rest during the fast. If you can do the fast while you are at home, that would be perfect. Depending on the level of toxicity in your body, you might experience various gastrointestinal upsets and fatigue in the beginning, as your body starts to eliminate some toxins. By the end you should feel energized and lighter. Just take it easy and enjoy the process!
