Best foods to eat after fasting


question to anybody who has ever done a day long food fast before...(or to anyone who knows)...what are the best/healthiest food(s) to eat after a complete 24 hour food and liquid fast? Thanks for your replies.


Lorne, it probably doesn't matter what you eat if your fast is only one day. It's usually fasts of several days that require you to start back eating easily digested foods. The body makes enzymes that help with the digestion process. If you've not been eating, enzyme production is down regulated.
