Fasting is not an express diet and is not reduced to stopping feeding for several days: We do not decide to fast overnight. The process must be thoughtful and especially medically accompanied. Fasting must be planned, practiced under the stress, punctuated by breaks, physical activities, readings.
Practiced seriously, fasting brings benefits that the body feels quickly. Overview.
Stress, fatigue, unbalanced diet: the excesses are reflected on the skin by the appearance of pimples, dark circles, a dull complexion, a surplus of sebum … By fasting, the intestinal flora is at rest, it is no longer in contact with toxic food and rebalances. The production of sebum is reduced, the impurities disappear, the skin regenerates and becomes smoother. The regeneration of the body also benefits the hair, which is strengthened and easier to comb. As for the teeth, they gain in whiteness.

The digestive system at rest
Often maltreated by an unbalanced diet or too rich, the digestive system takes a few holidays thanks to fasting: The liver and the walls of the intestine regenerate, the pancreas and the stomach are put to rest and the intestinal flora is rebalanced. By promoting the elimination of all toxins from the body, fasting becomes a real detox.
If it is not to be considered a diet, fasting necessarily entails a weight loss. When we consume more calories than our body needs, the surplus is stored as fat. During fasting, the body draws directly on these reserves and burns calories.
Fight against cardiovascular diseases
This is a direct result of weight loss. Excess increases the risk of developing cardiovascular disease. When we fast, our insulin levels and our sugar levels go down, stored fat is mobilized, and excess reserves are emptied. Not to mention that a healthy lifestyle in everyday life contributes to good cardiovascular health.
Serenity and appeasement
It’s amazing to say the least. Especially since we would tend to be aggressive when hunger pulls us! But after two or three days of fasting, the feeling of hunger disappears. We are no longer in the classic cycle “I’m hungry, I’m eating, I’m full”. We enter a state of contentment and we feel serenity.
