If you practice yoga regularly, you are probably already aware that the ideal break between every meal is eight hours. If eight hours is too much, it should be brought down to five. The reason is that your body needs this gap, so that one’s excretory system works fine.
When cut the same meal that you eat twice a day in to smaller portions and eat more times a day, you will note that you tend to put on more weight. The reason being that your excretory system is not finding the time to work properly.
There is a lot of garbage in your system that needs to be dispensed, and it wont get out if your stomach is constantly full. When your stomach is full with food, your excretory system does not function properly. Cleansing will only truly happen when your stomach is empty.
There may be a few days, when you do not feel like eating, on those days, may they be 11 to 14 days apart, just don’t. However, it is important that you do not force yourself to fast. The body has a natural cycle, and every 40 days the body goes through a mandala. During this time, there will be three days, when your body does not need food. If you are conscious of your body functions, you will find that you will know which these three days are. And, without any effort you will be able to go without food on one out of these three days.
The day your body does not feel like eating, don’t this is the day that you use to cleanse your body. If you have to forcefully fast, you may have to prepare your mind and body substantially.
