"Breakfast" is what the English call the first meal of the day, because it breaks the fast. During the night's sleep the body has lived on its own reserves, now it switches back to food and energy supply from outside. This process, where every day has its own rhythm of fasting and eating, is something we notice.
We eat when it's time for a meal or when hunger asks for a meal.
This is different with fasting, where fasting consciously renounces the supply of solid food for several days. People who have to deal with it report that they have pleasant experiences and that they are free from feelings of hunger in those days. The body switches over and takes all the Kraft and heat from its own energy depots, explains the doctor Dr. Lützner, who is known by the bestseller as a newborn by chamfered. He recommends recognized nine-day juice fasting according to Dr. Buchinger. The vegetable and fruit juices that should be drunk in addition to water and herbal teas provide the body with minerals, a few vitamins and some fructose from the juice, so that the brain can work better. Fasting is unsuitable for losing weight, even if a few kilos fall over time. However, it can be useful as an introduction to a change in the diet. However, the cleansing and enlightening effect for body and soul is in the foreground.
"The mind is like the stomach. You can only ask him to do things he can digest. This realization of Winston Churchill applies to fasting several times. Fasting can only be useful if there is an inner willingness to give up solid food for several days and to allow more rest, exercise in the fresh air and sufficient sleep. Without medical care, only those who are healthy should do so. Those who notice that giving up food is not good for them should choose the transition to fasting again. For the sake of the stomach and intestines, the construction days should also be kept after fasting, because after just a few days the digestive tract reacts with the most intense mood to dishes such as lentil soup with sausages and also to lighter foods such as noodles with tomato sauce or butter bread with cheese. The aromatic apple, which breaks another fasting period, tastes delicious.
