USEFUL HEALTH TIPS FOR FASTING

Share:

 The year is still new and so many people usually start the year with fasting. Fasting is usually done for either health or spiritual reasons. We do that by taking control of our hunger, and not being a slave to our cravings for food and drinks. Yes, fasting has a lot of health and spiritual benefits however, if not done properly it may result to some adverse effects on our health.

For instance, fasting can increase stress levels, disrupt sleep, cause heartburn, headache, fatigue; lack of food can also lead to a reduction in stomach acid, which digests food and destroys bacteria.

But to avoid these negative effects of fasting and also to help you maximize the spiritual and also the health benefits of fasting, it is important to take note of the following tips:

First, you must coordinate your eating especially when you want to break your fast. If you are doing a 24hours fast for instance (one meal a day) breaking by 6:00PM, is it important to ensure that you limit what you eat at least 3 hours before bed time. This is primarily because we want the stomach to be fully empty before we go to bed so as to sync up and optimize our sleep and wake cycles, known as our circadian rhythms. Most times when people break their fast, they are often tempted to eat everything they see before going to bed. Such act of eating late could affect your sleep and you are likely to wake up the following day feeling very tired.

As humans, we are creatures of habit, and we maintain those habits via circadian rhythms. It is the communication between the various clocks in our body and our master clock in the brain helps regulate our natural sleep and wake cycles. The master clock in our brain is called the Suprachiasmatic Nucleus (SCN). It is a small little nucleus in our brain that is sensitive to light, and is the master coordinator of our wake and sleep cycles. This small nucleus in the brain syncs your sleeping and waking with light that comes through the retina. Then it coordinates with other, body-clocks (like the liver for example) using neural or hormonal signals, core body temperature, or eating and fasting cues.

You can begin to see how late snacking, and large dinners throw off our internal clocks  - both in the brain and the body. Let’s consider a typical evening in Lagos state with our internal clocks in mind. From 7:00Pm outside, the sky begins to darken. The master clock in our brain called the Suprachiasmatic Nucleus (SCN) detects this and starts the process of preparing the body for sleep. But then, you have just brake your fast probably with a large plate of garri (eba) or semo, or rice, etc … a large consumption of energy, as dinner. The liver, a clock in the body, receives information that fuel (for movement, and energy) is at its highest and the digestion process begins and continues even while you are already on the bed.



Of course you are likely to have bad dreams, wake up tired, with headache, heart burn and other related symptoms. So, it’s important to eat at least 3 hours before going to bed.

The second tip is to check the kind of foods that you take to break your fast: While fasting, your body does not take in sufficient energy as such it has to break down skeletal muscle and convert it into energy. That is why, the first foods that you consume upon breaking a fast are critical to nourish the body. You need foods that are rich in vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients and other substances. Some of us try to break with fruits but our bodies do not get adequate nutrients from such fruits because most fruits sold in our markets are already compromised from the farm to the market stall.
