    • Alexandra: Hi Tom, I am in so much pain, I can’t even describe. I think I have something wrong on my liver and kidneys maybe also heart (none of which have been diagnosed so far) I am a bit worried. What should I do? Do I endure this hell or what? Please HELP!
    • Latisha: Hi, Eileen This is my first day too! All I had was green tea, water, and I made orange juice.

It definitly helps to know what others are going through. I had nothing today but 1 glass of distilled water and the water from 1 young...
    • Tom Coghill: Hi Alexandra, Yes you slow weightloss the more juice you have, generally. But if a juice fast heals your liver or kidneys, there can be weightloss from the healing. Some of the detox crisis after day 20 can have the most amazing peaks after that so just hang on. Just be patient. This...
    • Tom Coghill: Latisha, By a honeydew, cantaloup and water melon and juice them. Buy carrots beets, lemon and apple and try that. For the first 3 days drink what you want and listen to your body. You will cut down naturally. If you do not feel like juice go with it. Energy comes when you body...

    • 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...

    • Tom Coghill: Hi Ty Water fasting and work…. I have tried it… never works. one has to go… the work or the fast. If you are working take some fresh juice extracted with a juicer and on the weekend get time alone and water fast. I have found that I never have to wait long for God...
    • Tom Coghill: Hi Latisha, If you have a slow metabolism water fasting is easy with energy to spare. For the rest of us, butts drag like a bad cold for many days and those days cannot be predicted. I take juice when I work, the more i work the more I juice. Fri afternoon I go to water mostly lie...

    • Mary Beth: Tom, thank you so much.I will do a search, that helped out a lot :-)
    • Tom Coghill: Hi Elleen, Wise move taking the time to study before you fast. Many just jump in and run into problems. For people who are totally fucused on a water fast I tell them, buy a juicer, to start and end the fast and if the water fasting gets too hard have some juice. Are you in the...

    • 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...

    • 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...

  • Exercise During Fasting? (14)
    • Tom Coghill: Hi Carrie After a few day on water your digestion system shuts down and a pill just sits there and can cause stomach pain. Sure the tea is fine. Taking the supplements with a small amount of veggie juice is preferred. Some lemon-aid or plain herbal teas are good for water fasting.
    • Carrie: Hi, I am planning on doing a 5 day water fast. Is it okay to take a total body cleanse supplement during these days, and a fasting tea? Thank you
  • 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

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
