Doing 30 days of Water Fasting. Starting April 1, 2011
Reasons for Fasting:
My reasons for fasting are to get my blood pressure under control and to jump start a mostly raw food diet.
Past Fasting Experience:
I've fasted for one day a couple times, and attempted a 12 day fast that only lasted about half that, this past winter. I completed about a week long fast shortly before starting my current one.
Lots of veggies, very little meat, too much oils and salts.
Present Medical Problems:
Hypertension, Hypothyroidism, Adrenal Fatigue
State of Mind:
My husband is semi-retired and a farmer. I homeschool my children. My family is always here. Initially, my husband was not as supportive as I needed him to be, but during this most recent fast, he has taken on most of my responsibilities. There are times he has to leave and I have to care for the children, and then there is the seemingly never ending noise that comes with a family that is together 24/7. I am not always able to get the rest I need, but I know everyone is trying. As my fast progresses, I am getting increasingly bored... and thoughts of food are way too frequent.
