"I feel completely clear and recharged—like a jack-in-the-box ready to pop or a slinky ready to flip!"
Martha Schouweiler, Champion Dogsledder
WHAT IS FASTING?
Fasting, the ancient practice of abstaining from all food and drink except water, is thought to be as old as mankind. Whether a hunter or a gatherer, man always experienced periods of feasting and scarcity in the natural biological cycle. It is the modern 24/7 access to foods that is unnatural, and our bodies are now paying the price. Our genes haven’t had time to adapt to the embarrassing over-abundance of food that we have today. Our body still craves the natural cycles of abundance and scarcity of calories. Taking a break from food allows your mind and body to rest and recuperate and initiates the body’s own healing mechanisms.
Rests the digestive system
Allows for cleansing and detoxification of the body
Interrupts habitual eating patterns, shining a spotlight on them
Promotes greater mental clarity
Leads to a feeling of physical lightness and increasing energy level
“Fasting is the single greatest natural healing therapy. It is nature’s ancient, universal ‘remedy’ for many problems. Animals instinctively fast when ill."
Elson Haas, M.D. in Staying Healthy with Nutrition
WHAT IS FAST?
FAST is a certified organic, nutritionally supported 3-day modified fast for sustained weight loss without the usual hunger. Even if your goal isn't to lose weight, everyone can benefit from a spring clean by giving the body a time of rest to cleanse and detoxify.
FAST is a carefully balanced superfood and herbal blend including:
an extremely potent, pure, sprouted and bio-fermented plant-based protein blend with a complete amino acid profile to limit hunger and increase calories burned through digestion
a prebiotic fiber blend to keep things moving, reduce discomfort associated with digestive disorders and feed the good bacteria in the gut
an alkalizing greens blend containing vital enzymes, vitamins, phytonutrients and alkalizing minerals to strengthen the immune system, improve mental focus and clarity, and increase energy
liver and digestive tonic herbs to support the healthy functioning and detoxification of the liver, colon, kidneys, spleen, and gallbladder, purify the blood, strengthen the lymphatic system and benefit the skin
extremely potent and fast-acting antioxidant superfoods to absorb free radicals and energize your cells
After just 3 days, you will wake up feeling lighter, cleaner, energized and refreshed with an improvement in digestion, elimination, mental clarity, skin, and sleep.
“...the chances are much better for permanent weight control after fasting than after any diet whatsoever.” During fasting “profound changes take place. These changes revise attitudes about food and put appetite into alignment with the body’s real needs for energy.”
