When you begin to fast the body begins to go into a process of Autophagy. I don’t agree with all the points the author Nick English made, for example saying, “While there’s probably nothing wrong with drinking your weight in liquid kale, it won’t flush out toxins any faster than if you were eating, you know, actual food”.
I don’t agree with that because in phytotheraphy it has often been observed that liquid herbal nutrition is often the preferable method while cleanings. If for nothing more than to allow the body to use energy on healing itself rather than digesting so much.
Remember when you eat a very heavy meal your body has to work very hard to digest it. This is good in many ways because it allows for the body to burn calories. That is what the Thermic effect of food, or the Specific dynamic action as it’s been called nowadays, is all about.
However the energy that is being used could be saved and less calories consumed allowing your body to, a). begin Autophagy which essentially means “eating itself” and, b). still providing your body with the solid nutrition you need to heal well.
In fact Autophagy is the best way because now your body is in a process of recycling tissue.
