Today I want to cover the potential refeeding symptoms after a fast and how to avoid them. If you’re doing intermittent fasting, where you’re eating 1-2 meals a day, you don’t have to worry about refeeding. This video is for the person who does a 36-72+ hour fast. 

The longer a person fasts, the less they need:
• Hydrochloric acid 
• Bile 
• Enzymes 

When a person consumes a large meal after a long fast, they could experience different refeeding symptoms, such as: 
• Arthritis 
• Nausea 
• Bloating 
• Fatigue 
• Diarrhea 
• Gas 
• Stomach pain 

After a prolonged fast, to help prevent these symptoms, you would want to consume a small meal. Try small amounts of these foods:
• Cooked or steamed vegetables 
• A leafy green salad with olive oil 
• Berries
• Fermented vegetables 
• Protein (eggs, chicken, or fish—3oz.)

After this small meal, you’ll start to produce more hydrochloric acid, bile, and enzymes. Now, your meals can gradually get slightly bigger and bigger. 

What to avoid when refeeding:
• Red meat 
• Large meals
• High-fat meals 
• Too much nut butter
