Doing 7 days of Juice Fasting. Starting March 26, 2011
Reasons for Fasting:
Physical and spiritual.
Past Fasting Experience:
Several short juice fasts of 3 days.
Vegetarian with some raw foods but intermittent/weekly binging on junk foods like fries and snacks. WAY too much red wine!
I might take Vitamin E, B, Zinc and apple cider vinegar during the fast but generally don't take supplements.
Relevant Medical History:
Present Medication or Drug Usage:
None - I don't take pharmaceuticals
State of Mind:
Generally not happy about things. Skeptical about possibility of change (despair?) Spikes of extreme anger. Generally "Couldn''t be bother"
Work - from the time I leave the house to the time I return from work it's 12 full hours. I also work in a high pressure environment that is emotionally charged. I'm a little concerned about being able to handle the long days and emotional demands while fasting.
I have tended to hypoglycemia before so i'm a little concerned I might get the shakes and be unable to work properly.....um, but I guess i'm in such a bad state right now anything is probably better! If I decide to go longer on the fast, assuming I last for 7 days, should continue or take a break and start again?
