Hi. I'm Natalia Rose, and today we're going to talk about whether you can exercise while you're juice fasting.

The answer is yes, but you don't want to push too hard. It's good to do some form of exercise because it's all about keeping the chi flowing. That's what fasting is about to begin with, removing the blockages so they can be replaced with lots of conductivity, lots of flowing of life force. So, it's good to do some exercise, keep the body in motion, but don't push too hard.

You might find you want to pare down your exercise routine or make it less aggressive while you're fasting. For example, if you're a runner, you might, instead of running, rebound or walk or dance. If you're someone who likes to lift weights, you might rather do yoga. Just remember not to push your body too hard, take a rest if you need to take a rest, but know that the body's meant to flow, even when you're fasting.
