Juice Fasting Pt 11 - Keys to Good Nutrition & Eating Healthy with Uri Feast Yuri
Posted Aug 25 2008 2:47pm
I'd like to share with you some of the benefits of fasting as described by Patricia and Paul Bragg in their book, " Bragg Miracle of Fasting Book." This is a good book for you to read and have on hand during your juice fasting. Keep in mind that juice fasting, or what I like to call " juice feasting," is one of the healthiest things you can do for your body. Your digestion system and elmination system will be given a rest and time to cleanse themselves, detoxify themselves, and rejuvenate themselves. I personally recommend using the Feast (live whole food based InstaFresh super juice) throughout your juice fasting. For more details see below.

Don't be a Slave to Foods
"Most humans are slaves to foods; they must have breakfast, lunch and dinner at regular meal hours every day, year in and year out. They eat whether they are hungry or not, and their poor bodies are burdened by overeating . . . and usually poor nutrition as well! No wonder we have so many physical wrecks! One of the greatest nutritional teachers in the world, Professor Arnold Ehret, said, 'Life is a tragedy of nutrition.' How true is the old trite saying, 'Man digs his grave with his knife and fork!' Many people never give their stomachs a rest. They continually stuff and work the digestive and eliminative functions with an overabundance of food. This excessive burden means that the functions of digestion and elimination become so overworked and so exhausted that they simply collapse. The entire body then becomes enervated! Millions suffer from fatigue. Old age is not a time of life. It is a condition of the body. It is not time that ages the body, it is abuse that does." – Herbert Shelton
