Danna: 40 days of Water Fasting
Danna Novak, 31 years old Female, weighing 76 kg / 167.2 lbs, 66 in /167.64 cm tall, not-applicable. From San Francisco, United States
Doing 40 days of Water Fasting. Starting December 9, 2010
Reasons for Fasting:
to control nicotine, food, caffine and other substance addictions
Past Fasting Experience:
did a 13 day fast when I 20 years old. did another 14day fast when I was 25 now I'm 31 and due for another, but it feels harder than expected.
I was cooking lots of vegetarian food at home. I haven't had red meat in a VERY long time. lentil, spinach, yellow pea, eggplant, onions, peppers, tomatoes, garlic, rice, potatoes those were the main ingredient of a typical dinner I'd cook. I also have a tendency to over-cook food.
State of Mind:
fasting balances my mood, I usually have hypertension and my hand shakes a lot, but fasting helps calm me down. This week however I've been easily irritated, maybe cause it the first time I do while living with a boyfriend 🙂
I ate a banana today, would this ruin my ketosis state ? I was told that I'm supposed to urinate a lot, but I'm not, is this alarming?
