The Madal Bal Detox is a nutritious detox diet which supplies your body with the necessary nutrients for alert functioning so you can abstain easily from solid food. The Detox is not a true fast, as it supplies the body with 400-500 calories rich in minerals, trace elements, and simple sugars.
A true fast occurs when you consume only water. Not only is this difficult to carry out, such a fast can be debilitating to your body.
Thus, why is fasting recommended?
During a fast with no protein ingested, autolysis occurs and aids in the rapid formation of new cells and removal of dead and damaged ones . This process is beneficial as it triggers the body to use damaged cells and fat for fuel to meet the requirements of daily function.
The term “fasting” is now widely used to describe the consumption of juices or a nutrient-rich liquid diet. Also, researchers often use the phrase ‘short-term calorie restriction’ (400-800 calories per day) to associate a fast with a liquid diet.
