Doing 3 days of Water Fasting. Starting November 1, 2010
Reasons for Fasting:
Losing weight. I need to get all my energy back and feel light once again. I'm thinking 10kg in a month on a water-only diet before Christmas. I wanna start with 3days only cuz i wanna see how far i can go.
Past Fasting Experience:
Have done a 3day dry-fast (no food, no water) for spiritual reasons. The second day was the worst. I had lost all my strength so much that i had trouble walking, my knees were shaking as i walked. I noticed there was an excess of saliva in my mouth and a strange and bad breath too. I had a severe headache too. On the 3rd day, though, i had so much energy and felt really good and i actually wanted to continue with the fast but couldn't cuz it was not what i had planned.
I skip breakfast. i only do lunch and dinner, with my two litres of water. Because of where i live, both lunch and dinner are heavy on starch.
State of Mind:
My mind is so at ease right now.
None that i know of, except my love for food!
On a normal day, a person has to drink 2 litres of water but i'm sure if you are doing a water-only diet, there may be variations. I would like to know the amount of water that i have to take in a day so that i dont hurt my body in the process.
