I used to think fasting was for …uhhh well, not for me. Why on earth would anyone not eat? I had a hard time missing one meal! But then over a period of a few months, a kept meeting people who fasted and explained to me why they did so. A Muslim friend explained fasting for Ramadan and that really clinched the idea, but still…I was weak…then I learned about detoxing and cleaning out the system and so I tried a fruit fast…only taking fruit and fruit juice during the day and felt great. Now I try to do a juice fast once a week. It’s good for my body but mostly I appreciate the effects it has on my mind. I feel calmer and more in control. I feel clear and colours even seem brighter. I learn everytime that i need less to live on, not more.
