ACTIVE RECOVERY FAST DAY

1 Day Fast Food Guidelines

  • On your fast days you will consume nothing but water or herbal teas.
  • If you are taking any supplements give your body a break for the day.

1 Day Fast Exercise Guidelines

  • Take the day off
  • Or engage in a longer duration (1 hour or more) activity or very-low intensity active recovery (walking, biking, etc.) that will rely on fat as its main fuel source

How to do it: After you’ve enjoyed your last meal for the day start timer (about 6 pm.) on 1-Day Fast. Drink lots of water or herbal tea when you feel hungry (can add lemon to water). 12 pm is 18 hours. At the point when you can’t take it, have a smoothie or smaller meal to break your fast. Once you reach 6 pm, you’ve made it 24 hours. Longer than that doesn’t have much benefit.
