Water Fasting Question!!!
Okay, so today would be day five of my water fast… however, yesterday I began to feel great chest tightness and pains along with dizziness and an extremely low energy level almost to the point of delusion.. Not to say that I didn’t experience some fasting highs emotionally, physically the pain was beginning to worry me.
So I ate a quarter slice of a banana and drank a half gallon of fresh squeezed orange juice. Way too much, I know. But my body was thanking me as I drank. That was over the course of a day in the sun at work while also drinking water.
Today I feel fantastic and would like to continue on the water fast, but I want to know if I undid all of my efforts by eating and juicing. I am going to continue until “hunger returns” and hopefully have some responses soon. I hope that I have only slowed my detox and not halted it completely.
I am still getting plenty of rest and fresh air and sunshine and being somewhat productive, however I didn’t prepare for the water fast properly and went from eating bacon and eggs and whatnot straight to just water. I work part time but at a nursery so I don’t have many demanding tasks. In fact my job supplies me with much fresh air sunshine and rest, however it may have even still been too much activity.
I have juice fasted before with success but I broke it incorrectly, that was a few months ago. I gained a small amount of weight compared to my previous weight so I wasn’t so much concerned about that, but last year I was very active and eating healthfully but after the holidays came around I fell into a sedentary lifestyle and stopped controlling my eating, and my health has somewhat deteriorated. I have more acne than I did last year, which as any of you who have ever struggled with it know, is quite a dilemma.
But! I have been giving a lot of thought to my health lately and I am pursuing this water fast with the intention of converting my diet to one of mostly raw foods, to improve my health, my acne, and my life in general. I eagerly await your advice.
