Fasting is a great way to break the eating routine, and also a super way to cleanse the body of impurities. The act of fasting has been around from the beginning of the civilized man, and can be referenced in almost every religious doctrine. There are various books that attest to the life saving qualities of fasting. Fasting allows for the body to be readjusted to accept a new routine of eating. When you fast the body is denied the usual satisfaction of the urge to eat, and as the body is like the child, and the head like the parent when you enforce the rules the child will obey. Of course this is not accomplished with out sincere efforts, and a desire to be in control. The food that we consume goes through a process called digestion where the nutrients are extracted and the waste is routed for expulsion from the body. The process takes time, and as we continuously eat throughout the day we pile waste in our bodies before it can cleanse it self of the waste from previous meals leading to poor health. It is recommended that when you first begin to fast that you start with a one day liquid fast, and then progress to a fast for several days consisting of liquids like water and coffee without the sugar there are people so disciplined in the area of fasting that they only eat once a week. There are great books on fasting that go into more details you can pick one up at your local public library or purchase one from your local bookstore.
