Doing 14 days of Juice Fasting. Starting February 15, 2012
Reasons for Fasting:
I want to be a healthy weight for my height. Practice self control. Good Health. Getting sick less often
Past Fasting Experience:
I've done a juice fast for a week, and 2-4 days here and there since the end of summer in 2011 after watching fat sick and nearly dead while i was very sick in bed. i was tired of getting colds, flues, food poisoning, and gaining weight.
I over eat During a meal at least once a day lately. I have problems staying away from dips. I'm making a habit of snacking at night because I'm a night owl. I watch my diet off and on, Fasting helps keep me in check and makes me realize i do not need all that comfort food. I do get exercise from my job, a lot of running around and lifting but it doesn't bother me while fasting. I haven't been getting sick ever since i started except a slight cold recently which wasn't bad at all, no sore throat and i could breathe through my nose.
Multivitamin and melatonin at night
Relevant Medical History:
Present Medication or Drug Usage:
I take ibuprofen sleep aid at night for back pain and to go to sleep
State of Mind:
Happy i found this site because no one else fasts around me and they are discouraging. I feel fine about fasting i know I've done it before so it can be done that's comforting. I'm just proud that i continue to fast since the first time I've done it. So i guess confident and happy that it doesn't feel like a big deal to just do it.
I'm not going to water fast because its a little scary and my life is too demanding for that type of commitment.
How often should i do a salt water flush? that's the only thing that worries me is toxins just sitting in my system. i don't want to over do it because its not fun that's for sure . But i don't know if its every day or every other day or longer between. And how long can juice be good for in the fridge?
