How To Keep Navratri Fast

Set your intention

Why are you fasting? Are you fasting for spiritual reasons, to detoxify your body, or for both? Having a clear intention will help you stay motivated throughout the fast.

Prepare your body

In the days leading up to Navratri, start to eat lighter meals and avoid processed foods and sugary drinks. This will help your body adjust to the fast.

Eat a healthy breakfast

Before you start your fast, eat a healthy breakfast that will give you sustained energy throughout the day. Good options include fruits, vegetables, nuts, and seeds.

Stay hydrated

It is important to stay hydrated during your fast. Drink plenty of water, coconut water, and other clear liquids.

Avoid certain foods

 During the Navratri fast, it is customary to avoid certain foods, such as meat, fish, eggs, onions, and alcohol. You may also want to avoid grains, legumes, and dairy products.

Eat small, frequent meals

If you are allowed to eat during your fast, try to eat small. This will help to keep your blood sugar levels stable and prevent you from feeling hungry.

Eat nuts and fruits

 If you are allowed to snack during your fast, choose healthy snacks such as fruits, vegetables, nuts, and seeds. Avoid processed snacks and sugary drinks.

Listen to your body

If you start to feel lightheaded, dizzy, or unwell, break your fast. It is important to listen to your body and not push yourself too hard.

Break your fast safely

 Once you are ready to break your fast, do so slowly and carefully. Start with a light meal, such as a bowl of fruit or yogurt. Avoid heavy meals and sugary drinks.

Be patient

It may take a few days for your body to adjust to fasting. Be patient and listen to your body.
