    • Ona: Groeten Katherine, Ik ben Amerikans maar ik woon in Nederland meer dan 10 jaar. Als je wil soms een beetje makelijker spreken, kunt je een klein berichtje onderaan doen. Ik zou voor je uitkijken! Succes met alles! Ona
    • Ona: Hi Tom, Thanks. Blood sugar is a thought… Perhaps I’ll pick up a blood sugar tester. But usually when my blood sugar is down I feel tired and achy - & I’m revved! I’m trying to avoid all sugars this time around - that’s why no juice. Any sugar seems to keep...
    • Catharine: Tom, thank you so much. As I said in my post yesterday, I can use all the help and support I can get. I did some research but never came upon the lymph issue… I’ve been a paraplegic since 1995 and gained tooooooooo much weight. I was wondering if it would be bad or good if...
    • Tom Coghill: Hi Catharine, Your situation is indeed difficult. You can fast on any juice even sugar cane juice or just herbal tea with some honey. The juices help but you can fast on water. For you, fasting would be very important as your body would not have the detoxification that comes with...
    • Tom Coghill: Hi Ona, Your hunger during fasting may be blood sugar related and the fasting is increasing the effect as everything becomes more sensitive. Do you have a juice extractor? Try melon juice. You are on a excellent path to health and patience is part of the program. No write as much as...
    • Ona: Hi All, This site has been a real inspiration to me (thank you Tom). It’s frustrating that Doctors know so little about fasting… I’m on my third day of a water fast (at least no juice - so definitely not a juice fast ;-)). Still having occassional bouts of hunger, but full...
    • Catharine: Please!! I need all the help and support I can get. I’m a 33 year old paraplegic and as from today, I am attempting a juice fast. Anyone who has any suggestions as to what, when and how, please post a comment. I weigh about 140 kg, I don’t know how many pounds that is, in...
    • Tom Coghill: Faith, Live sprouted grains made into to bread is like cake. Sooooo good. You are making me toooo hungry. Hi Aliceceila, I would just fast. Fasting is the best thing you can do for bowel problems. After that fast, take flax in the morning with some oatmeal and a salad every day....

    • Tom Coghill: Hi Jess, Great to see you made it. Yea a little scary getting ready to come back down the mountain to civilization.

    • Michael: I am currently on a juice fast (day 13) and I have lost 16 pounds. My goal is to lose a total of 40 pounds (from 205 lbs to 165 lbs). First of all, is this weight lost goal unrealistic on a juice fast? Second, should I be concerned about lack of protein while juice fasting? Last of all,...

Quote From the Books

Ok, I now know just how messed up I am. The chapters on the emotions and eating hit home. I am planning a fast but, I know that I need to rebuild and cleanse my mind of all the toxic thinking and emotions that make me want to hide in the pleasures of food. I feel alive for the first time in many years. Keep on going, Tom you have helped me more than my words can express. — Suzie Bilinere
