Fasting Q&A with Modern Hippie

I recently had a friend reach out to me and tell me she was ready to do a fast.  She was excited and full of lots of great questions.  I've decided to share them with you (with her permission of course). For any of you on the fence or those that also have questions, this might be helpful.  To the left is a helpful book by Steve Meyerowitz on Juice Fasting.  Below are her questions and my answers. Her questions are a bit advanced but some are also fundamental for fasting. More updates on her progress will follow. Enjoy!  

"Hi Dez,  Ok, so I read all that I could find on your blog about fasting. I'm so glad that I did because I learned about weaning the certain foods & junk from my diet beforehand. I'm glad to have been doing the Maker's Diet since July so eliminating most of this won't be hard for me.  

Now, for the questions about the actual fast..."

Q 1. During the fast, I should drink appropriate amounts of h2o, right? Half my body weight in ounces?
A 1. Drinking clear liquids is important. I'm not even very good at this one; Drink 50 to 70 ounces of pure water on top of your juicing and herbal infusions and you'll be just fine:)
