Fasting & Alcohol Addiction

March 7, 2008 | 788 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...

    • Jasmine: hey tom.I am on day 2 of my water fast.I don’t think I will need to eat any fruits at all. I will discipline myself till I complete this 21 day water fast. I will keep u posted! :)
    • Tom Coghill: Hi Clara, Try a few days on juice then water, then back to juice. Weightloss is dependent on metabolism. Generally young people have faster metabolism but not always. You will know as by the second day of the fast. Tom
    • Jasmine: Thanks a lot tom for your reply.I start my fast tomorrow.May include a fruit a day,or may not.I want to be able to do this.
    • Clara: Hi Tom! I’ve never fasted before but I want to do it for weight loss. I want to lose ten pounds. I’m wondering if I should go with a juice fast or a water fast. Also, how long should I do it for? I figured if I have a specific goal I’ll be able to stick to it. I’m...
    • Tom Coghill: Hi Jasmine, I will gladly support you. Depression and anxiety are rooted in fear, and that fear is rooted on insecurity and the insecurity is rooted in low self-esteem. There may be clinical factors that fasting can help, but for sure you must rebuild your self-image and become...
    • Jasmine: Dear Tom,I have been water fasting for a day every week for the past three months.I want to go on a 21 day water fast and need support. I feel depressed and have anxiety most of the time for a year now, fatigue and restlessness. I have been feeling that I need to go on a long water...
    • Tom Coghill: Hi sjh32 Sure take the multivitamin during any juice fast. The game idea seems good to me. Who is winning? LOL
    • Tom Coghill: Sylvia Expect to gain 8 lb within 3 days after fasting from bulk in the colon and increased water in the body that is used for digestion. There is also the “set point” factor where your body uses every calorie to return to it previous weight. Exercises and a diet low in...
    • Tom Coghill: Hi Johnny-Boy, Monthly fasting is good and no problem with 10 days out of 30 fasting. After 3 days on puree you could eat any fruits, salads, even a small salad with fish.
    • sjh32: Hello all, I am on my 5th day of fasting, water and juice, and 2 cups of coffee a day. I am wondering if I should be taking a multivitamin during my fast. I have fasted many times before. I try to quit the coffee but cutting back from about 7 cups a day. I find the not eating part is not...
    • Sylvia: Hello everyone.

    • Johnny-Boy: Hey Tom, Firstly, I’d like to thank you for this great site….very helpful. I had some concerns about fasting, but all were addressed as I read this. Secondly, I am currently on day 3 of a water fast. I began the fast by eating 1 cup of fruit puree for 5 days, followed by...

    • Tom Coghill: Hi Jenn, Water fasting should have healing or symptom reduction in about 5 to 10 days. It is good to eat salad or fruit 2 days before fasting. Cheese and bread become like a rock if they are in the colon when starting a water fast. Let us know of the results. Tom
    • jenn: how important is it to eat well before you start the water fast? like lots of fruit and veggies rather than food that isn’t quite as good for you and how long before you start the fast should you be eating healthy? Getting ready to start the water fast, i wanna see how it does with my...

Quote From the Books

On the 27th of August 2001 I began a 30 day juice fast. I didn’t actually plan to do 30 days, it seemed impossible to even think of. I just began and thought I’d see where it went. Now I stand in amazement. You asked what I thought of your books. OUTSTANDING!!! — Gray Hodge
