At the beginning of the day, after sleep, your body is breaking a fast. During the time while you sleep, you are fasting. After waking, the first meal consumed will break the fast. Break-fast should be sensitive to the rest and cleansing that the fast provided to your body. You should not consume anything heavy at this time. Instead, the first thing that you should consume is a glass of water at room temperature with fresh squeeze lemon juice, a period of 15-30 min should be allowed so that the lemon water can do its function. This should be followed by fresh-squeezed/fresh-pressed fruit juice or fresh seasonal fruit. This is what your body needs at this time of day and what is easiest on the digestive system. The juice lubricates your system and allows it to function optimally.
Elimination cycle (4am-12pm).This is the time when your body would like to direct most of its energy to the work of cleansing toxins from your body. To not interrupt this work, light eating is the best choice now , as the best way to break your fast (BREAKFAST). This does not mean a cup of coffee (regular or decaf) and a donut . By light I mean eating the lightest, most perfect food.. Fruit and Fruit Juices (diluted with water is best for most) You see, fruits does not diget in your stomach. In fact, fruit goes through the stomach and directly to your small intestines. In this way, there is no diversion of energy from the body’s work of eliminating being used fordigestion of food. You see. when a heavy traditional breakfast is eaten ( eggs, potatoes, grits, bacon, toast, biscuits, waffles, pancakes, french toast, etc), it takes energy away from eliminating toxins and uses it for digestion of foods just eaten, and proper ELIMINATION IS NEVER ACHIEVED.
The ideal elimination pattern. Three to five bowel eliminations daily — once upon rising, one after each meal, one before retiring. When this pattern is not the norm ( and for most, it i not), then over time, it can take its tool on the body. Eating fruit and drinking fruit juices in the morning (especially the ripe, juicy ones), can provide an easily absorbed food, high in vitamins and minerals. You have also employed the greatest cleanser for your body, as they help to dissolve the often old accumulation of mucus and waste that is along the intestinal walls ( this include small intestines and colon). For some, eating fruits only in the morning may take a while to get used to. Do the best you can. Eat the amount of fruit and/or juice to make you comfortably full. If you feel hungry later in the morning, you can have bananas, granola, bran muffins (made with natural sweeteners), or whole grain toast. Keep in mind your objective is to adjust to ONLY FRUIT AND/OR DILUTED FRUIT JUICES IN THE MORNING.
*Fresh squeezed or pressed fruit and vegetable juices are meals in themselves and one of the quickest and most expedient means of consuming the whole nutrient the body needs. Bottled and canned juices are not fresh. Many of them have been pasteurized (subjected to extreme heat), diluted, reconstituted and/or have additives, artificial colors, artificial flavors and preservatives added. They are completely devoid of the digestive enzymes that are vital to your body needs.
