The spiritual benefits of fasting have been practiced for thousands of years. The problem is that fasting can result in electrolyte imbalances, thinning hair, lanugo, cardiac arrhythmia and renal failure when done wrong.
With our Healthier Fasting program Robert Ferguson provides you with holistic nutrition principles that make it easier for you to demonstrate faith and spiritual reflection without hindering your health.
How It Works
With most fasting practices the goal is to abstain from certain food,
beverages, or both, for a period of time. This may also preclude sexual
intercourse and other activities in addition to food and beverages. The
Healthier Fasting principles work best when the fasting consists of
partially restrictive, limitation of particular foods and/or substances.
This program does not advocate absolute fasting, which is the
abstinence from all food and liquid for a defined period.
Your pastor or bishop provides the spiritual guidelines of fasting to include which foods, beverages, ingredients and cooking methods to avoid and this program provides you with the nutrition structure that supports hormonal balance, boosted metabolism, improved energy and stabilized blood glucose (sugar).
Some of the popular fasting practices that work well with this program include The Daniel Fast and modified versions.
Most people that experience fasting do lose weight. For this reason many
people opt for fasting as a way to lose weight or to cleanse the body
of toxins. It is true that you can lose weight fasting, but you can also
slow your metabolism and hinders your health. Our Healthier Fasting
program makes it possible for you to both lose weight and contribute to
your overall health and wellness. It also makes it easier for you to
transition from fasting to "regular" eating so that whatever weight you
lose you can keep off.
