3 Ways to Make Fasting Easier
Fasting has numerous health benefits, but approaching fasting without enough knowledge or a plan holds a lot of people back from implementing it successfully.
Don’t watch the clock. This is the worst thing you could do. It’s like watching a pot of water boil - it seems like it takes forever. Watching the clock causes anxiety and anxiety for a lot of people triggers a pseudo-hunger signal and then they prematurely break the fast and don’t reap the benefits.
Start slow. Trying to go from no fasting to a multiple day fast will not be fun for you. Start with intermittent fasting of 16 hours per day.
Stay hydrated. Don’t attempt a dry fast, make sure you drink plenty of water during your fast. Mild dehydration can make you feel fatigued or give you a headache in those circumstances don’t make for a great fasting experience.
Just about anyone can benefit from a fasting routine of some sort, but the key is finding what’s right for you and making sure that you’re going about it in a way that will give you optimal results and little to no mental anguish.
If you’ve been struggling with successfully starting fasting or progressing with your fasting routine then you may want to consider working with a coach as an accountability partner.
