Fasting is an important aspect of the Heal Your Heart and Essentials programs at CCFM.

Please make every effort to participate in the webinar in it’s live or recorded format. It is important to participate in the fast if possible and we will modify a fast for your particular circumstance if necessary.

Why Should You Fast ?

Foods stimulates the secretion of insulin, the hormone that stores the excess calories we eat as fat to be used later. Trouble is, when we eat frequently we never have low insulin and never use the stored up fat energy. Reducing calories and being hungry just decreases metabolism or burns up muscle. Only low insulin levels like you get from fasting can make permanent dent in stored fat.Loosing weight is important. We need to get rid of the visceral fat that builds up around the internal organs and causes heart damaging inflammation.

But, the healing magic of fasting occurs when you keep it up for several days. Thats when the powers like autophagy are unleashed. Autophagy is Greek for “self eating”. This is the process of cleaning out damaged proteins and damaged cell parts that gum up the machinery of our bodies. Fasting for several days also stimulate stem cells and unlocks other healing programs in the body.

But fasting by yourself is no fun. Jan 13-18 CCFM will host a Community Fast. We will prepare together with a webinar on Jan 8 at & PM. Registrants can download the CCFM Guide to Fasting and we will have a daily call in at 8:30 during the fasting week for support and to share tips and techniques.

Together we can have a fasting experience that if not fun is least interesting. Register now and invite your friends.
