State of Mind:
I hear that the first three days of a water fast are usually the hardest. I've been fine the past couple of days, but now I am starting to feel weak. I'm currently only drinking water with the occasional cup of unsweetened herbal tea (tangerine flavor). Contrary to some people's beliefs, the tea doesn't make me feel hungry. It's just a variation on water. Am reluctant to, but due to weakness (and I do have a newborn, but not breastfeeding unfortunately) am contemplating whether I should get some juice (don't have a juicer so can't blend fresh stuff). If I do get some juice, should I look for apple or feijoa juice? I understand I should stay clear of citrus because of the acid content and how it can upset your stomach, correct? I have fresh fruit (pears and apples) at home, but understand it is better to drink juice when you're on a fast, rather than interrupt the fast by eating solids.
