Vegetable juice fasting is safe and appropriate for almost everybody

Vegetable juice fasting is safe and appropriate for almost everybody

“To eat when you are sick, is to feed your sickness”  

What are the questions to ask and things to consider before fasting?

I have worked with thousands of people over many years now and i have found that Regular Intelligent Fasting is great for almost everyone - howevere, there are always some people that it does not serve and is not recommended for.  So before you fast, there are a few things to be aware of.


  • Fasting is not recommended for those pregnant, breastfeeding, underweight, undernourished, severely anemic, with hypoglycemia or with kidney disease, or any other serious condition or those under 20, unless under the professional care of a health practitioner. 
  • Again; fasting is generally not recommended for those under the age of 20.
  • Fasting is NOT APPROPRIATE for those who have an eating disorder, bulimia, anorexia, depression or hypochondria. 
  • I recommend Regular Intelligent Fasting with vegetable juice, as one part of a balanced strategy for good health, alongside lifestyle changes (sleep, stress management, not smoking or drinking), and eating a smart, plant-based wholefood diet. 
  • Eating 600 calories or a hamburger while fasting IS NOT FASTING.  Nor is it intelligent or healthy. 
  • As The Essene Science of Fasting says; “There are some kinds of fasts which must be wholly condemned: fasts which are only inspired by the wish to follow a system momentarily in vogue”. 
  • Fasting is part of a healthy lifestyle; not a single magic bullet.

So if you look over the above and know that you are able to fast for a day then proceed with wisdom, intelligence, good planning and a good attitude ok?

More build up advice tomorrow!

PS: For those in or near Auckland, remember to book your tickets for the Fasting Celebration Seminar in Parnell on Thursday 7th November.  This will be the last time I deliver this seminar.
