Water Fasting: My Personal 3-Day Water Fast Protocol
Play • 23 min

Episode 49 of the Fit Mother Project Podcast is all about water fasting and how it can be so beneficial to your health and wellness.

This is a special episode because I'm going to reveal to you my personal three-day water fasting protocol that I do several times per year.

Water fasting delivers profound benefits, from activating your immune system and stem cells to getting rid of cellular garbage, and so much more. 

Now, if you know anything about the Fit Mother Project, you know that intermittent fasting is a regular recommendation. 

A 24-hour fast is great because it's something you can do every single week. You have dinner one day, then just drink water, coffee, and/or green tea until dinner the next day. 

You can get even more benefits the longer you fast, but that’s not always easy to do!

So, I feel that a three-day fast is a sweet spot between getting maximum benefits without it being a super long and difficult fast. 

I know what you’re thinking: a three-day water fast sounds crazy. 

But, people water fast for 7, 10 days, and there’s even a case study of a man who water fasted for an entire year!

The point is, the body can survive water fasting, and for most people, it’s not detrimental to their health.

So, yes, fasting is appropriate for people who want to lose weight or improve their health. 

However, it is not safe for people who are pregnant, breastfeeding, or have a history of any kind of eating disorder. 

Also, people who are on medication to manage diabetes or blood sugar, or if they need to take certain medications with food, should not fast.
