Hi there =) I just embarked on a 30 day water fast (hopefully). I'm new at this and was hoping you all could provide guidelines. This is my 10th day on the water fast (just about ends as it's past 12am here) which I hopefully intend to keep and carry on till day 30th or 40th of water fasting. This is my third attempt at water fasting in two months. My question is that I haven't found anything about the symptoms experienced during a water fast anywhere. Whatever I search for ends up with just telling me how vigorous water fasting is and then starts talking about juice fasting etc. I want to know of the symptoms of the water fast and it's detox cycle. I for one have a few of the symptoms occurring such as blackouts (when rising too quickly), coated tongue, bad breath, acne breakouts, rashes and body odor. However, I still haven't gotten the mucous as of yet. None at all. Is this normal? Does this only happen on the juice fast? Also, I've been having stomach cramps since I started the fast which subside when I rest and flare up when I bend down. I did not start the water fast properly I admit, but I decreased my food intake the week before my fast. I hadn't researched on it much until the 3rd day of my fast. Now I am aware of most of the things such as breaking the fast etc. but am curious about these symptoms. Please help since I am new to this. No need for a lengthy answer (to save your time), just a quick summary please. Thanks in advance! =) will keep posting about the fast regularly!
