Hi, I'm Natalia Rose and today we're going to talk about how to do a fruit fast. A few things to know about fruit fasting. One is that you want to make sure that your intestine is nice and clear before you embark on a fruit fast or you're going to get incredible bloated. So start before you undertake a fruit fast, make sure to do whatever colon cleansing needs to be done in order to ensure that the fruit has a clear path because fruit moves fast and it ferments anything in its path. The second thing to remember is that a fruit fast can be a great way to transition back to normal food after juice fasting. So its a great bridger. It will also elongate the benefits of the juice fast because fruit is so easy to digest, it's not the same as going straight back into denser food. Its kind of a bridge between the two and it will enable you to elongate the benefits of the juice fast. Keep in mind that most people today are full of pathogens, fungus, yeast, and mold. So in the case that your body has an overgrowth of fungus, yeast and mold, fruits would not be advisable because fruits would feed the fungus, yeast and mold. Generally speaking, I don't encourage a lot of fruit fasting, but if you are going to fruit fast make sure you keep your fruit to low-sugar fruits as much as possible. Like citrus fruits, especially grapefruits, and berries and other low-sugar fruits like green apples.
