1 DAY FAST FOOD GUIDELINES

If you are fasting, you will consume nothing but water or herbal teas. If you are taking any supplements give your body a break for the day.

HOW TO DO IT: 24 HOUR FAST

After you’ve enjoyed your last meal for the day start timer (about 7 pm, yesterday) for 1-day fast. Drink lots of water or herbal tea when you feel hungry (can add lemon to water). Once you reach 7 pm (today), you’ve made it 24 hours. Have a small meal to break your fast.

*If you are breastfeeding, you do not need to do a 24 hr fast and can replace with regular macro day. If you do cleanse, have a small meal at the end of the day or throughout day if needed.

GUIDELINES

  • Consider a trip to the sauna

  • 60 minutes of low intensity cardio. Walking, biking, swimming, elliptical, or an exercise of your choice. Keep your heart rate in the fat burning zone.
