The Raw Food Fast

Just as the title says this raw food fast consists of uncooked fruits and vegetables.

Raw Food Fast

Whether you choose to eat or drink raw fruits and vegetables this clean eating helps us detoxify.

It is a great way to cleanse your body, help the digestive system and improve liver function.

Choose from a plethora of healthy food choices and you are well on your way.

How often can you do it?

Try doing a day of raw foods perhaps one day every other week, or if you are a real health enthusiast do one day every week for even better results.

The Raw Food Fast

The fast in total is 4 days. Two days to prepare, one day of fasting and one day to come off the fast.

With every fast there must be a few days of preparation so you don’t release too many toxins at once.

Many people try a 1 day (24 hour) fast and enjoy the results so much they commit themselves to a 2 day, even 3 day fast the next time.
