How to avoid a overeating after fasting?

Increased appetite during post-fasting period is a common occurrence. Many people face this problem as soon as they start practicing fasting. And this is not surprising as the body uses its pool very economically during fasting, and at the time following the fasting the body endeavors to fill everything that it has lost during hunger as quickly as possible. Also, add to this overall rising of metabolic processes, and you'll get gargantuan canine appetite after fasting.   

The modern man is notable for overconsumption, sometimes unregulated eating, and many a man absolutely loses control after fasting. All these lead to the fact that having weight reduced by some kilograms during fasting, you restore former weight very quickly, are unable to stop, and add some more extra kilograms.  Especially it is vexing in the case of fasting for weight reduction purpose.  

So, it is necessary to follow the precautionary measures described below:   

Firstly, it is important to start fasting little by little. For this purpose the one-day fasting is the best approach. It will help you on learning to regulate your appetite and avoiding overeating during the post-fasting period.  

After weekly practice of one-day fasting for 2-3 months it is time to go on with longer fasting period of 2-3 days. And only after you understand that you do not have problems with post-fasting period, you can proceed to much longer fasting. Using this approach you train your body to hunger gradually, and then it will be much easier for you to avoid the overeating after long period of fasting.   

I repeatedly followed-up people trying to fast for more than 7-10 days without preliminary training. Having this rather long fasting period born bravely, they fell down after fasting, being unable to face out the canine appetite. Even if this did not result in dangerous to health consequences, then brought to naught that all beneficial achieved during fasting time.  

The second important rule is correct tuning to fasting. Make an effort to be prepared for fasting, and plan this period clearly. It is necessary to understand what you start fasting for. If this reason is important it will be much easier for you to avoid overeating. But if your purpose is unclear and cloudy, it is better not to start fasting.   

The third very important rule  -  it is important to finish fasting appropriately, but the rehabilitation period lasting for 1-3 months (depending on your fasting period) is very important as well. Just during this period significant appetite increase occurred. If you do not want this to happen, draw your own menu up for the post-fasting period, and work out a diet which you will keep during rehabilitation period. The appropriate well-balanced diet will make it easier for you to cope with the increased appetite.   

And some more simple but useful recommendations:  

Chew meal thoroughly after fasting and during the rehabilitation period. Follow the Indian Yogi's recommendations: during chewing process the solid meal should be liquefied, and liquid food should be converted into solid. Such a long being of meal in the mouth promotes faster satiation.  

If after the fasting you have the blind munchies anyway, try to eat more vegetables and fruits. They fill stomach quickly, contain fewer calories, and are digested quickly.  

And also remember that overeating is a temporary occurrence. With obtaining experience you will learn to regulate your appetite, and think back with a smile about those first fasting times when you could not do it yet.
