What are the benefits of fasting? How long should a fast last?
Posted on 27 November 2012 10:06 PM

Fasting is a great blessing to the body. There are many different types of fasts that you could explore. Fasting with no food at all for a 24 hr period or even just missing an evening meal once in awhile gives the body a chance to not concern itself with digestion but to catch up on cleansing, or even just letting it rest. 

While fasting be sure to drink a lot of water to aid the body in flushing the waste and toxins.

Here is an article on fasting from our website that might be helpful to you.  This article in particular discusses the benefits of fasting. 


How long should the wheatgrass fast continue, for adults and kids (9 & 7)?

I would suggest the fast last no longer than 3 days for adults. You may continue drinking the wheatgrass in your water indefinitely, but not doing it solely as a fast where you are abstaining from other foods. For children I would fast no more than one day to be safe, but if you see any signs of hypoglycemia, then stop the fast. Also ensure that you drink enough water during your fast to prevent dehydration.

Christian greetings to you! From my teens to this very day, my stomach has protruding. I am over 65 years old and I am still trying for my stomach to get smaller but with no success to this very day. I can't, for years now, do any excesses due to a waist problem. However, I try to use some light weigh frequently, four (4) days per week on average. Can you advise me on what I should do from your professional point of view, to drop those extra pounds around my stomach line?

Thanks much
