Frequency of Fasting Per Year?
I was wondering how many times a year I can fast for 5 days or more. I did a 21-day water/tea/broth fast in January of this year at a clinic. Also daily mini-colonics every day during the fast. I fasted 4 days in April for a medical test, and have been fasting one day a week and doing Fast-5 when I eat. I would like to do another fast June 17 through 21 or possibly longer (ideally just water if I can). Is this too soon/too often? I don’t want to mess up my metabolism.
Also, I was hungry every single day during the 21-day fast in January? Is this normal? I thought hunger was supposed to go away during fasting.

Sure you can water fast several times per year. If if is a juice fasting, you can almost live on juice. I heard of a guy that did 3 years on juice to protest the Vietnam war. If you listen to your body it will tell you want if needs.
You will not get the best results with tea and broth as there are no living enzymes to help the body detox. Hunger and go away of be present, depending on many factors. Broth can be high in salt and that can stir cravings. If the tea has sugar you get carvings after the sugar peak.
