I was raised in a Christian household. My parents taught me to abstain from meat each Friday. After I broke free from the religious institutions and starting looking for truth everywhere and in various ‘holy’ books, I stopped being rigid about any spiritual practice.
The Truth is not exclusive to any religion
Instead of fasting and abstaining from eating meat, I decided to juice fast on certain Fridays for health and spiritual reasons. I speak a lot about the fasting topic and its benefits in my “Introduction to Fasting” article.
Why Fridays you ask? First because I got used to abstain on Fridays due to my previous religious practices.
And second because I believe that if you are serious about your health then Friday is the best choice to “hit the brakes” and slow down on eating. When you give your body a break from food, it will start a healing process.
By juice fasting on Friday (I usually drink fresh carrot juice) and eating moderately and lots less on Saturday and Sunday you are bound to experience the best Monday of your life.
Besides, these two weekend days (Saturday and Sunday) tend to make us overeat more than any other weekday
