How does a 5 Day Fast week work?
1. Start of 5 Day Fast
5 Day Fast week starts with planning a start date.
Within a week you will receive your 5 Day Fast Kit with supplements, the menus for five days (+ 5DF goodies) at home. In the week before, we will add you to that Sunday's digital community group.
A few days before the start it is time for the groceries for the five days. You will receive a digital shopping list from us in the community. You can easily order the groceries online by clicking on the links and ordering from EKOPLAZA (National coverage). Of course you can also go to your own trusted store and buy the groceries there. The cost of groceries is not included and amounts to about 50 to 70 euros for five days, depending on the package size. Large packages are of course cheaper for the five days.
The products on the shopping list are an important part of the program and contribute not only to the health effects during the 5 Day Fast, but also to your health and the quality of your digestive system after the five days. You therefore want products of 'EKO' or 'Bio-Dynamic' quality. For more information about this click here.
3. During the five days
Every morning, from day 1 to day 6, you will receive a video from us in the community in which we tell you what to expect that day and how you can feel. In addition, we take you completely by the hand by indicating what you eat each day, when you take the supplements supplied and what is expected of you in terms of sport and exercise. The digital community is also there to ask questions, experience it together and help each other through it.
4. Energy and new beginnings
From day 4, people often start to feel more energetic. This is because your body switches to fat burning and goes into ketosis. That's great! During these last two days you keep moving and you continue to follow the 5 Day Fast menu and exercise protocol exactly.
From day 6 you are free again! You can do everything again. Finally, we give you advice on how best to deal with this day. In the following days you will replenish everything. This ends your 5 Day Fast week. You've boosted your health for the longer term with all sorts of short-term benefits at the same time.
