I was introduced to fasting years ago, and as I researched and read more I became fascinated with the benefits. I read more and more about a bone broth fast and all of the health benefits and I decided to give it a shot. My first time doing it was a little rough. My body had never done it before and I did not know what I was doing. Day 1 was really hard, but by Day 2, I felt incredible. I felt lighter, more flexible, my skin had a glow, I had more energy, I felt calm, and my brain felt clearer. I could literally feel my body healing from the inside out. I have since learned that the more you prepare, the better your fasting experience will be. There is a ton of research and information out there, so check it all out to see if a Bone Broth fast is right for you. In general I use it to 1.) feel better 2.) improve my health 3.) teach my body to run on my fat stores 4.) reduce inflammation 5.) reset healthy eating habits 6.) remind me to appreciate food 7.) reset my taste buds to enjoy and appreciate real, fresh food 8.) increase energy 9.) sleep better 10.) increase mental clarity 11.) heal my gut and digestive system 12.) normalize blood sugar 13.) reset and level hormones.
So here I am sharing my three day Bone Broth fasting journey via my Instagram Story April 17-20. I'm sharing the good, the bad, and everything in between. You can join in the fun, and please laugh with me. If you want to fast along with me, we have made tubs of bone broth available in all of the t.Loft stores (one tub should get you through the entire fast), you can order via my favorites page here www.jillminton.me/favorites, or you can make your own (I used to do this, but it made my house smell like grandmas for days :)). I've shared my general outline and some resources below.
Here are the Deets:
1.) Fasting from April 17-20, 2018.
2.) Drinking 3 - 2Cup servings of Bone Broth each day (6 Cups per day). Still drinking all the water I can handle (sometimes with lemon, ginger, cayenne, turmeric). May incorporate decaffeinated tea if needed.
3.) Use the week before to get your body ready: Eat clean (cut out processed foods, sugar, alcohol, etc), begin to intermittent fast to get your body used to converting over to running on fat stores.
4.) I still workout. I actually think it helps me tap into my fat stores for energy quicker. I feel like it forces my body to get to work and go use what it has been holding on to. It actually gives me more energy.
