New to Fasting?
 
To all who are new to our product, the Smashin’ Greens, our fasting routines, and challenges, you may be wondering, “Is there a way I can slowly implement the ‘Greens and fasting into my lifestyle?” The answer is YES! We have created this protocol to help you slowly incorporate the Smashin’ Greens into your diet, progressing into a fast, and then slowly reintroduce healthy meals as you come off your fast. If your goal is weight loss, this will help your transition into healthier, more mindful eating habits. Sticking to these recommendations and having a plan will help keep you from binge eating following your fast so your body will more easily adjust to the reintroduction of food. These recommendations will also help prevent you from falling right back into old eating habits and we encourage you to push yourself to make healthier choices. If you are under the age of 18, please get permission from a parent or guardian before trying any fasting routines.
 
 
 
Directions for
Slow Transition:
 
- Day 1: Replace your breakfast with a Smashin’ Greens shake and have your lunch and dinner as usual (try tmaking your meals from fresh, whole food sources).
- Day 2: Replace both your breakfast and lunch with Smashin’ Greens Shakes and eat dinner as usual (try making your meals from fresh, whole food sources).
- Day 3 (start of your ‘greens fast): First, set your goals and intentions and the length of time you wish to fast- if you set a specific goal, you are more likely to achieve it. Replace each meal- breakfast, lunch, and dinner with a Smashin’ Greens shake. You may have black coffee and plain unsweetened herbal teas with no additives, creams or sugars. You may have a sugar free protein shake if you wish, after you work out and only if you work out. We recommend our MASF Gains Protein powders.
- DRINK PLENTY OF WATER!! SUGGESTED INTAKE IS HALF YOUR BODYWEIGHT IN OUNCES. (Example: A 160 pound person should drink 80 ounces of water per day!)
- Continue your fast until you reach your goal number of days. Most people go for 3 to 5 to 10 days or more!
- On the day following your last day of the fast, break your fast with a light, easy to digest breakfast (Included below are lists of recommended foods to eat when you break your fast; from your first meal, to your second and third meals and so on!)
- Following your first breakfast you have 2 options: You can continue the day by eating your 2nd and 3rd meals following the food options below; OR you can continue the next 2 days with a slow transition out of the fast, increasing your meals while decreasing your Smashin’ Greens meal replacements each day. If you wish to follow the slow transition into eating protocol, see the following:
- Post-Fast Day 1:  Break your fast with a light and nutritious, easy to digest, simple breakfast. Continue replacing your lunch and dinner with a Smashin’ Greens shake.
- Post-Fast Day 2: Have a light and nutritious breakfast, followed by a nutrient-rich, lunch full of electrolytes, minerals and healthy fats. Drink a Smashin’ Greens shake for dinner.
- Post-Fast Day 3 (End of your transition out of the fast and start of your normal eating routine): Have breakfast, lunch and dinner following our food recommendations below. .

Note: You do not have to slowly transition into a fast. However, a slow transition into and out of a fast will be easier on your body, especially if you’ve never done any kind of fasting before. The option is there if you wish to.

Post-Fasting Dietary Suggestions

Breaking Your Fast
First Meal Recommendations
 
After reaching your goal and completing your fast, you should eat foods which are easy for the body to digest, are a good source of protein, healthy fats and fiber, and will replenish nutrients, such as minerals and electrolytes. Portion size is also important. Consider smaller portions for comfortable digestion. These are some first meal suggestions:
- Fresh fruit and vegetable juices
- Raw fruits 
- Dark, Leafy green lettuces, such as spinach, kale, etc.
- Cooked vegetables, including potatoes
- Vegetable soups 
- Healthy fats like coconut oil, olive oil, avocado, eggs, grass-fed butter, and ghee
- Nutrient-rich bone broths
- Fermented foods such as kefir, sauerkraut, unsweetened yogurt, Kombucha etc. 

 
 
Food Recommendations for 2nd and 3rd Meals
 
After you’ve reintroduced some items of light substance back into your diet, you can start adding foods which require a bit more complex digestion, such as:
 
- Raw/ uncooked vegetables
- Nuts and seeds, such as chia, flax, hemp, almonds, etc.
- Eggs
- Grass-fed or pasture-raised meat and poultry
- Fresh, wild-caught fish
- Whole grains and beans (soaked/sprouted is best for improving digestion)
 
 
Diet Recommendations Moving Forward
 
If you have successfully completed any of the above fasting regimens, congratulations on your success and hard work! It takes discipline and consistency to change your mindset and eating habits. If you’re fasting to break old eating habits and get a fresh start, these are our recommendations:
 
- All bodies are different, we won’t tell you when to eat or how much. This is where you do the research and figure out what works best for your lifestyle and metabolism.
- Know Thyself. Listen to your body. EAT WHOLE FOODS!
- Whole foods are single ingredient foods that grow straight from the Earth and are in their natural, original form, unprocessed.
- Fresh vegetables & fruits, fresh meats, fresh juices, nuts, seeds, eggs and all of the above food recommendations.
- A good rule of thumb is to avoid all those processed foods in the center of the grocery store and stick to produce, meats, and dairy sections.
- Incorporate organic superfoods into your diet.
- Avoid processed or canned foods.
- Avoid alcoholic beverages, sugary drinks, and refined sugars.
- Make the switch to natural sweeteners like stevia.
- Drink lots of water daily! (half your body weight in ounces)  
 
 
 

** Practice mindful eating. Listen to your body; sometimes what feels like hunger pain is your body craving water. Eat when you are hungry. When you feel you are becoming full or even before you are full, stop eating. Avoid overeating. Avoid eating out of boredom and mindless snacking. Eat slowly and without distractions. Help your digestive system by chewing your food thoroughly. Chewing is a very important step in digestion and the better you chew your food, the easier and more readily it can be digested.
