hv: 21 days of Juice/Water Fasting

  • hv con, 34 years old Female, weighing 78 kg / 171.6 lbs, 52 in /132.08 cm tall, United States

  • Doing 21 days of Juice/Water Fasting. Starting November 29, 2010

  • Reasons for Fasting:
    Fasting for detoxification, healing, chemical and hormone balancing, weight loss. I hope to get to at least 21 days of water and juice fasting, but I would really like to see myself get to 30 days.

  • Past Fasting Experience:
    Previously have done a couple of 3-4 day fasts and a few 2-day fasts within 8 years.

  • Present Diet:
    On the fast: water with lemon and herbal teas for detox and healthy fasting. When I cook at home, chicken, fish, rice. Either low carb/low sugar diet or mediterranean diet. Healthier fast food choices, soup and salad when available. Occasional burgers, fries, pizza.

  • Relevant Medical History:
    I quit smoking cold turkey after 17 years and it caused an upheaval of hormonal imbalance.

  • Present Medical Problems:
    Suspected hypothyroid after quitting smoking. (Many matching symptoms) I had been taking L-Tyrosine supplements, ready to add other supplements but figured instead that I might be able to correct the issues with an extended fast and not keep adding pills and dodging certain foods. I put 40 pounds on almost immediately and couldn't lose. Otherwise I eat mostly healthy and I meditate 5 hours per week.

  • State of Mind:

  • Questions:
    This site has been an inspiration to me. I am so grateful that it is here and that people are posting and communicating as a way of support. Thank you!
