Liquid Fast Day

Liquid fast day

The Waning Crescent Moon or 4th Quarter (the last 7 days leading up to the New Moon) and the New Moon itself is the best time for a detox program.  At LWTM we call this ‘Liquid Fast Day’ when you try to eat as liquid as possible.

This could be stews, soups, smoothies, or freshly squeezed juices. By the way, they all count as ‘food’. Drinks allowed are (a lot of) water and herbal tea – both have zero calories and black tea and coffee in moderation.

Please stay clear of all other coffees, fizzy and sugary drinks, and of course anything alcoholic.

This will not be easy at first and be prepared not to last the whole day – that is normal. But over time your body will get used to it and it will become easier and easier.

A Liquid Fast Day is the ‘clean out day’ for your gut. Fasting as a concept has been around for thousands of years and very recently it has made a come-back. Fasting is easy to do (once you get the hang of it) and recent studies have proved that it has a very positive impact on your health, from reduced heart disease, diabetes 2, Alzheimer and even cancer.
