Fasting? Remember to drink water Fasting for religious or health reasons is a personal decision. The key is getting the right information on how to fast can be discussed primarily with your doctor who is aware of your own personal state of health. Getting information by searching on the internet is not always the best thing to do if you have health conditions, to include but not limited to; obesity, high blood pressure, diabetes, or any health issues, require professional advice before fasting.
Water What will be the first thing you reach for after the fast officially ends? While most of us would like to say water, the truth of the matter is that most people will fill up their plates before pouring themselves anything to drink.
While fasting most people will feel tired, have difficulty concentrating and may even get a headache or start to feel dizzy. While this is partly due to the fact that they haven’t eaten anything for a number of hours, and blood sugar levels are beginning to fall, it is probably mostly due to the fact that they are dehydrated! So before gobbling up plenty of food , make sure to drink a glass or two of water.
