FASTING GUIDELINES

Prior to beginning any type of fast, each participant should consult with his or her doctor.

While fasting is a wonderful tool for health and cleansing, there are some individuals who have certain medical conditions and should always consult a doctor before beginning a fast.  Please keep the following in mind if you are considering the pursuit of a fast:

 

• Do not fast if you are pregnant or nursing.

• Do not fast if you have a serious illness like cancer, AIDS, Anorexia Nervosa, Leukemia, severe anemia.

• Do not fast if you are a Type I Diabetic or Insulin-Dependent Diabetic.

• All Type II Diabetics (and some Type II Diabetics on insulin) should especially inquire of his or her physician about the feasibility of fasting and about any possible adjustments to the insulin/blood sugar-lowering medication regimen during the fasting period since the blood sugars tend to be lower during a fast. If diabetics receive medical clearance to do the fast, they should continue home monitoring of blood sugars throughout the fast as directed by their physician.

• Do not fast if you are taking a diuretic (or “water pill”). Diuretics precipitate loss of water and electrolytes like potassium. Do not fast if you have liver or kidney disease; the liver is the detoxifying organ of the body and the kidneys aid in the elimination of waste via the urine. If either of these organs is impaired, it will be difficult to obtain the usual benefits from fasting, and you may exacerbate your medical condition.

• Do not fast if you have congestive heart failure or a diagnosed cardiac arrhythmia.

• Do not fast if you are on certain medications like prednisone, narcotics, antidepressants, or diuretics. You should refrain from fasting if you are taking any of these medications. However, there are other medications that can be safely taken during a fast. Please consult your health care provider when considering a fast to determine if fasting is right for you.

• Medications should not be discontinued abruptly. If a fasting participant is on medicine, he or she should consult his or her physician regarding possible adjustments to the medication regimen during the fasting regimen.

• If the participant develops exacerbation of an existing medical illness or begins to develop adverse reactions or worrisome symptoms of any kind, he or she should discontinue the fast immediately and consult his or her physician immediately.

 

 We will be doing the intermittent fasting (IF) method which means cycling between periods of eating and fasting. The most popular method is the 16:8 fast.  The 16:8 fast means you fast for 16 hours and eat your meals during an 8 hour window.  Your first meal will be at 12pm and your last meal with be at 8pm. 

Foods to avoid during intermittent fasting:

  • Fast Foods

  • Processed Foods

  • Sweets

  • Simple Carbs

  • All sugars

  • Sweetened Fruit Juice

  • Dairy

  • Beef /Pork

Tips:

  • Prepare your meals ahead and use meal prep containers.  This will make it easier for you to bring to work and heat up.

  • Add alerts on your phone to remind you “it’s time to eat and rink water”

  • Go to the supermarket on Saturday and meal prep Sunday for the week.

  • Let your family and friends know you are fasting and let them know how they can support you. 

  • Journal during this time of fasting.

  • When you are going through cravings, drink water and mediate on the word.

  • Try to be consistent with the time you eat every day.

  • Get 7-8 hours of sleep.

  • Avoid stress and mediate on scripture.

  • Pray before every meal.
