Today, Biohacker Babes share their best tips for fasting:

1 Breathwork

Creating time and space for breathwork, allows our chronic stress response to soften, and the nervous system to rebalance. You also become more energized, motivated, and clear!. This is a perfect state for entering a fast.

2 Sunshine

Along with food, natural light is the most powerful way to reset the circadian rhythm. In the absence of food, sunshine is a powerful signal to our systems to boost the immune system, synthesize Vitamin D, and fight inflammation.

3 Essential Amino Acids

These are the building blocks for proteins in the body, and fundamentally vital for physiological functions such as tissue repair, nutrient absorption, and hormone and neurotransmitter synthesis. Supplementing with essential amino acids creates a "negligible insulin response", to support our cells, but not disturb our fasting goals.

4 Trace Minerals

Fasting tends to deplete our bodies critical stores of minerals. Consuming trace minerals is a great way to hack your hunger and boost hydration during your fast.

5 Mobility Exercise

Mobility is a great way to improve circulation and blood flow, while keeping the body's energy requirements in the low to moderate range. Gentle mobility exercises can increase energy and focus to carry us through the day.
