For centuries, fasting has been used to help improve the spiritual connection of individuals to a

higher power. However, recent study has revealed that fasting could also have many physical

health benefits for practitioners. For example, researchers at the University of South Carolina

have found that fasting for as little as two days could help the body completely reboot its

immune system.

Fasting can also be an excellent way to lose weight, yet with so many variations of fasting how

are you supposed to know which style will work best for your health goals? What follows below

might just give you a better idea of what type of fasting you should be using to achieve your

health and weight loss goals.

Juice Fasting

Juice fasting is an excellent way for an individual to boost their immune system. Juice fasting

can last anywhere from 1 day to two weeks; it is focused on providing an individual with as

much nutrients as possible with as little calories as possible. A juice fast involves consuming

liquids from fruits or vegetables only. No solid foods are eaten during the fasting period.

Water Fasting

Water fasting is one of the most strenuous and exhausting types of fasting, this is because the

body is given no calories for energy production. In addition to this lack of calories the body is

also given very few nutrients.

undertaking a water fast individuals should always speak with their doctor.
