Once you are rejuvenated in body, mind and spirit by fasting, now it is up to you to continue living healthfully so that the former problems do not return.

When you leave Vida Clara, continue eating lots of fruit, and gradually introduce more vegetables, and slowly add in small quantities of nuts and seeds. ALWAYS check in with your own body before eating anything. Stay with a high-level, high-nutrient, high water content, clean and high-vitality diet. This will help you maintain the benefits you have achieved from your fast, and continue to gain more and more vitality and peace of mind and body as time goes by.

If you choose to consume other cooked or animal foods, such as bread, pasta, beans, eggs, milk, cheese, fish, chicken, meat, etc., know that these foods will tend to clog your system and be much harder to digest. A good rule of thumb is that raw foods are better than cooked foods and plant foods are better than animal foods.

If eating cooked foods or animal foods, emphasize plant foods and animal foods that are conservatively cooked, or raw if possible. Though these foods certainly have nutrients, the overall net effect tends to be negative, because they burden the body with loads of toxic materials that require energy and nutrients from your own body to process and eliminate them. If indulging, it is best to wait at least 2-3 weeks after your fast before eating these foods. And if your fast was a long one (>14 days), it is better to wait for at least a month.


 


Eat rice, potatoes and similar foods as first choices for cooked foods. However, if you do partake of them, be sure to use your own body and your senses to see, smell and taste them thoroughly, keenly noticing how your body & mind reacts to them. Also, keenly notice how you feel afterwards – 10 minutes later, 30 minutes later, 2 hours later. Notice how you feel the next morning when you wake up – how clear, clean and peaceful you feel, compared to your diet of fruits and veggies.

This is an excellent time for you to grow in awareness about how foods affect you on all levels. Use this time wisely! Keep a journal of the responses from your body and mind, and make good decisions as you fine-tune your diet and lifestyle.
