Nothing but water should be taken when you are fasting. The intake of water must be two to two and a half liters. One feels fresh if one continues drinking water and the intake of water also helps the expulsion of morbid matter from the body.
On the evening of the first day of the fast and the morning after, an enema of hot water should be taken to clean the bowels.
One day’s fasting should be followed by a food intake 25% less than one normally takes. A two days ‘fast should be followed by the ingestion of fruits only the next day; normal food should fallow the next day.
A three days ‘fast should be followed the next day by fruit juices and soup of vegetables. On the fifth day eat fruits only and on the sixth breakfast on fruits, lunch on bread and boiled vegetables, and repeat a fruit diet for your dinner. It is only afterward that you should resume your normal diet.
