Doing 21 days of Juice Fasting. Starting January 3, 2011
Reasons for Fasting:
Spiritual, mental and physical rejuvenation. Clarity of thought, vision and purpose. Control over lower-self desires. Health boost. Weight loss. Re-set path to healthier lifestyle.
Past Fasting Experience:
Yes. Juice fasting - 14 day fast, 21 day fast (both were good)
Has slowly eroded and deteriorated over the last 2 months into too much refined flour, sugar and excess everything.
Relevant Medical History:
Have experienced 3 previous cardiac arrythmias, in which my heart rate went above 180 bpm and stayed there for a few hours. The last one lasted about 2 days until I had a cardioversion to re-set it. Have not experienced an event since before my last 21 day juice fast (other than a few seconds of palpitations or a few minutes of seemingly irregular heart beat). Not on medication.
State of Mind:
Cautiously positive. I know this can be a roller-coaster ride! Hope to achieve my goal of 21 days, and perhaps even go for 28 days. I would like to also include a week of raw food eating after the fast, and hopefully keep my diet to at least 50% raw after that.
Hate preparing food for the family when fasting - but they are very helpful and accommodating.
