March 7, 2008 | | 3,093 Views

One beer on a long water fast and you are blasted. You get high fast and then come down quickly and feel like crap. The worst part of drinking during a fast is the intense hunger it creates. Alcohol is somewhat like an appetizer, when you drink even...

    • Eileen: CUMOSTA! Thank you all for sharing your personal stories and thank you Tom for hosting this wonderful resourceful website for all of us to share in. I am on my 1st day of my fast. I have been researching and preparing for over 2 months. I am doing a distilled water fast with water from 1...
    • Eric: well it’s the end of day four. I was hoping to not be this hungry still. I am such a glutton, this is going to be hard. I am hungry but surprisingly it’s not a hunger that is greater than anything I’ve ever felt before. It’s just a constant nagging feeling telling me...
    • Tom Coghill: Hi Marry Juice fasting using 3 to 4 liters of fresh juice a day with a multi B vitamin and 5 egg whites or protein supplement will provide excellent nutrition for you and your baby and detoxify at a comfortable rate. Do a site search on breast feeding the box at the top right.

    • Latisha: Hello Everyone, Today I started my Fast. All I had was some green tea so far and some water I want to do a juice fast but is unsure how much juice to drink daily. What is the best tasting fruits and veggies to mix? What juice give you the most energy? I did a site search but Im still...
    • Karen: ZeroDude I think Tom may have accidently missed your post. I wondered how you were doing on the v8 splash drinks. I am a little concerned about those drinks as they say 100 percent juice, but they really are not. I’m not sure how you would feel drinking just that. Are you able to get...
    • Karen: Molly, that was actually May 19 on 17
    • Karen: Hi Molly, It’s really best to start with a juice fast. I am on day 19 of a juice fast and have done really well. The detox is slower but I have been able to stick to it. If you read my notes dated back around May 17th I wrote some of what I am doing and the results. I started with 4...
    • Molly: graydaisy@aol.com I am a 25-year-old female with a lot of desire to fast! I want to detox my body! Especially due to a skin condition called hidradenitis suppurativa. I have been trying over the course of the past three days to fast on only water, but I have not been able to get through...
    • Tom Coghill: Hi Alexndra, Basic rule: Water fasting -rest. Juice fasting -exercise and rest when detoxify.
    • Tom Coghill: Hi Alexandra, You will gain some weight after a fast as your colon refills and digestion needs the body to hold more water. Sure two weeks is great for breaking the fast. Do a site search for “breaking the Fast”.
    • Tom Coghill: Hi Alexandra, You are the first person to expound on increased sexual energy and experience. What I have never said on the web is the fact that after the first fast the sex was so amazing. My girlfriend and I did another 2 fasts over 30 day, with a few days in-between as we had...
    • Alexandra: Hi Karen, Not only a fasting buddy but my support angel! Thank you for your encouragement! I too am not feeling it for exercise lately, feeling weak, tired but at least try to get in 10,000 steps of walking (as brisk as you can) no matter what everyday. Unless you are really sick,...
    • Karen: Congrats ! Alexandra , that’s great news ! I knew all this would pay off eventually. :-) I am doing well still hangin in with the juice twice a day. Having trouble staying movitivated for exercise but getting it in here and there.
    • Alexandra: OMG! I made a mistake! I lost 2.6 lbs NOT 0.6 since the day before yesterday! I now weigh 134.6 lbs. My brain is a bit foggy, sorry! Oh, feels so good! No wonder why I feel light and thinner! Duh!
    • Alexandra: Day 20th: I did not weigh myself yesterday but from a day before I lost 0.6 lbs. and since then I am half a centimeter thinner on the waist and on the hips both, 71 cm waist, 97.5 cm hips. I do feel thinner and lighter as well. My question is do you start gaining the weight back as...
    • Alexandra: Well, yes, today was my 19th day and I was so tired that I didn’t do any substantial exercise. I had 1 cup of vegetable broth all day and that’s all. I took all two of my diet pills and they scared me with extreme palpitation and a numbness on my hands. Waited out but was...
    • Alexandra: Here’s what I am finding out and I have no idea if this is typical (did not read anywhere else just yet): Strangely and while I was detoxing heavily (so I am at the peak of repulsiveness at the time), a few days ago, my sexual appetite was totally of the charts. Like in all time...
    • layla: Hi everyone, really love reading all your stories and progresses, you have all inspired me so much that I have started juice fasting myself as of today!! My first day has been okay so far, no bad detox effects as yet, I must say It probably is the fact that I had a few pieces of pineapple...

    • Rawr: Well, day 5. So far just a LOT of hunger and weakness. Have had a headache here and there, and slight stomache pains, but other than that I am doin fine.
    • Tom Coghill: Hi Shan, Normal blood results change during a fast. I would not worry about low sodium. Try some sea salt in the juice. 1/2 teaspoon is enough. Thin people normalize very quickly after a fast. This is the best time to exercise as you get excellent results in the increased anaerobic...

    • shan: Hai Tom, How r u?sorry i didnt get ur point.do i need to use only veggie juices? “Could be fermentation as your stomach is not secreting the right digestive juices.”is this means because of acid. thanks a bunch.
    • Tom Coghill: Hi Shan Yogurt with acidpholus cultures are good but regular yogurt bacteria cannot live in the intestine. Sure squash is good as it has some omega 3 and leafy veggies are high in minerals.
    • Tom Coghill: Hi Shan, You may want to do a few days of water fasting to let your digestive system heal. Try just veggie juices, or adding lemon. Could be fermentation as your stomach is not secreting the right digestive juices.
    • Tom Coghill: Hi Lia, I had to weight lift for one year to develop my self discipline enough for fasting. I decided if I did not have self discipline I would have to develop it.

  • Detoxification for Athletes and Bodybuilders (26)
    • Tom Coghill: Hi Anton, That would be a pure protein diet and not a fast.
    • Tom Coghill: Anton, Yea, one egg yoke per day is enough. More is too much cholesterol.
    • Anton: Also why only the egg white? The yolk contains many beneficial proteins.
    • Anton: Why can’t I consume protein powder with a water only fast?
    • Tom Coghill: Hi Anton Sure you can juice fasting with a protein powder but not with water fasting. Veggie juice has more minerals and vitamins than fruit juice but both are good.
    • Anton: Hi, I want to try a fast for a week but I don’t want to lose muscle mass - can I still use my protein powder mixed with water/juice? per serving it has; 23G whey protein 1.5G fat 2.5G carbs 1G Sugar 10 egg whites a day is rather expensive. Is veggie juice better then fruit juice? can...

Quote From the Books

This is the information I have been searching for. So clear, so commons sense, I wonder why I missed it. When I was younger, I was an athlete, but now…. 20 years later, oh no. But, you gave me new vision and inspiration. Second day of my juice fast and my wife is loves the recipe book. I would recommend these books to anyone how needs a life overhaul. — Juan Callion
