Hi Everyone!

I hope everyone is doing well with both new
found Mental Clarity & Weight Loss on their fasts.

was hoping we can posts updates here about how long we've been fasting, how much weight loss, clarity, & side effects...etc. Or how your overall fast turned out.

Today is day #2 for me. No weight loss yet. Felt fine yesterday. Headache/light headed today-may be adding coffee to this Water Fast. I am hoping to go for 30-40 days.

PLEASE ALL JOIN IN!!! Thanks,
Ana

Day 8 of a 14 day water fast NEW
by: Alycia

Hi, well to get started I'm on day 8 of my 14 day
Journey.. So far I'm down 10 pounds from the day
I started this journey, and I feel great. I want to tell
You more about myself so u can understand where
I'm at on my journey. I'm 5"1 I started at 145 pounds,
And I recently quit smoking cigarettes. After I quit all
The bad habits in my life I gained so much unhealthy weight
I went from weighing 120-125 to 150-145!!! So u can see how
unhappy I was with how everything changed, and it did so in
3 months. I replaced my habit with food, and I've realized food had taken control of me. So here I am day 8 of my total body
detox my over all goal is to be healthy, and continue to live a
healthy life. I'm so proud of myself for making it this far because this is my first fast. I've done short one day fast or skipping dinner fast in the past but never thought it in me to
go for 14 days and to have already made it more than half way
through. My advice to you is to push yourself times might get
real hard but we can over come it within ourselves to keep on pushing forward.

Being alone is going to be hard NEW
by: Anonymous

My eating habits have been spiraling out of control and I feel like it's time that I took control of myself.I've constantly wanted to start a fast but I could never even make it past the first day. This time i've sufficiently prepared myself. I'm so mentally prepared it almost seems as if my body prepared itself too. The only thing is, i'm alone in my endeavour. I don't hwithave anyone I trust enough to tell them what i'm going through (not even my own mother would understand). Anyway I came across this site and thought it would be good to share my feelings and experience with others going through the same process. I am 4'9 and 130 pounds. I'm looking to lose 20 pounds on my fast while incorporating some mild exercise. I've done alot of research and I feel like this is the most effective, disciplined yet rewarding way to lose weight. Today is day one of my fast and life looks good :).

by: Age is more than a number

Well, I have lost 12 pounds so far and feeling really good. Still haven't passed any signifcant amounts of old waste, but having BM's every day. It's very cold out and I find I have to really bundle up to keep from getting chilled. I have a lot of energy today which is fun and I have good mental clarity.

Day 6 of my water fast NEW
by: Age is more than a number

Hello. This is day 6 of my water fast, I am experiencing some joint pain today, I did an hour of passive yoga followed by a hot bath and I am feeling much better. I started passing old fecal matter yesterday but have not pooped a significant amount yet.
I believe that's because I am not doing colonic treatments as I did the last time I did an extended fast seven years ago. This is a detoxification process. The nay Sayers have not done it, emotionally and spiritually a detox. process as well, remember that and try to be good to yourself. Be gentle and avoid negative people as much as possible even if you love them. Just tune them out. I bless them in my mind and don't really listen because this experience isn't about them.

Day 3 and counting!! NEW
by: Biddyann

I am on day 3 of the water fast. Day 2 was tough, was really tempted to eat something but I didn't give in. I am trying to do this water fast for 10 days, so hopefully I wont give in to temptation. I drank a cup of coffee though with a spoon of sugar, I hope that wasn't cheating, it made me feel worse after a while and I regretted it. I am not deeply religious but yesterday "Day 2" I was crying in the bath about the injustice done to Jesus when they nailed him to the cross. This is making me strangely spiritual and more appreciative of everything in my life. I felt a bit dizzy at times but so far today " Day 3" has been the best day so far. :) Good Luck to everybody whose doing it, I will definitely do it again sometime. :) xx

Second day in. NEW
by: Anonymous

I started a 10 day water fast yesterday and have lost 3 pounds when i got weighed this morning. I am doing it for weight loss but also because ive suffered from bulimia off and on for 8 years. I was always over weight as a child and young adult but lost a lot of weight over the past year although I am by no means skinny, however due to binging and emotional fix i have gained over a stone back on. Ive done a lot of research and apparently fasting is a good way of breaking the emotional ties with food. I plan to fast for 10 days, have one day off and fast for another 10 days until i am at my desired weight. I will then introduce mainly juices and veg in to my diet and hopefully by then this easy to do. I only want to lose about 21 pounds but its the emotional tie with food i need to breakotherwise Im going to be like this for ever. Dont feel hungry at all today, im having at least 3 litres of water a day and I do cheat slightly as i have 3 cups of coffee a day.

10 day water fast NEW** NEW
by: Anonymous

There is no way you are going to lose 40lbs in 10days you might lose 20 MAX if you stick with it for 10days, after the 4th it isnt hard. What I did was I was planning on going on this for 10days couldn't stick to it went from 141 to 134.5, keep in mind I was also doing a lot of exercising which wasnt recommended on this diet, i did 4 days. Now I'm back up to 136lbs, but still burn 1000 calories each day. gym 6-7 times a week. Do it more as a boost to start out a healthy workout or diet. You will gain all the weight back if you don't eat healthy and workout. After you get off the diet you will gain a about 5lbs back and you will gain ALL OF IT BACK IF YOU YOU GO BACK TO YOUR OLD EATING HABITS.

Day two (: hmu if you have questions NEW
by: Anonymous

I started yesterday 8/11/12. Female 5 foot 6" at 139lbs. I'm doing this for weight lost. I cheated yesterday and ate a banana and I also have headaches (on a normal basis so I drank a low calorie Gatorade mixed with a fat burning supplement to speed the process up, since I'm only going to be on it for 10 days)fish oil is also another great fat burner I take 3000MG in the morning with 1 vitamin C and 3000MG at night (just that much for increased fat loss, will go back down to 3000mg daily once off diet). I drink one gallon of water a day. Last night It was really hard to sleep, I don't remember even remember sleeping. I'm just waiting for this "hungry" feeling to go away. I honestly want to start exercising but I don't know how much my body will be able to take. I'm down to 136lbs but I think this is just water weight, I am waiting for the body fat to start coming off.

Beginning Tomorrow! NEW
by: Keira

Hi, I've had a lot of trouble with water fasting in the past. The longest I've lasted is a bit over 72 hours and then (without hunger as an incentive, more just craving of the motion of putting food in my mouth) I've caved.

I think I'd like to start small and try with a 7 day fast. See if I can get that far this time. I'm not sure how to get feedback on this site, but it would be fantastic and I think a great help to receive some.
Just some support of any kind would be great! And anyone who wants to join... feel free!

On and off and back ON!! NEW

I went on a four day fast and lost 10 lbs after the fourth day. I wanted to go for 21 days straight but broke my fast with a binge sessions that started with my sister homemade brownies. And the sad part is that I didn't even crave them or wanted to eat them, after seeing how sweet they were but I guess old habits die hard. I'm still keeping positive since I didn't gain one pound from my bunge and starting my 21 day fast again today as day one. I'm already enjoying the mental clarity that I have been feeling and look forward to the rest of the benefits of fasting. Good luck everyone!!

I am just beginning a water fast for the first time ever!!! It is my third day, YYYeeeaaahhh and I am shocked that i really havent been hungary. I am fasting to lose weight because Ive never weighed this much before... Teetering between 255 and 262 wow and im only five foot two!!! Like I said, this is my third day and Im now 248!!! I was constantly eating more and more every day before i began. I plan to go for about 21 to 25 days because I want to take off the 100 pounds I rapidly gained over the past year. Its been up and down for me but thanks to a great support system on on my way. My breathe smells a little bit. I am not very tired or moody as I expected this is an amazing and empowering feeling! I cant wait to see that glow of clearer skin. I really want to experience a great detox!!!
Well Thanxx for Listening... La La Out!! I hope to inspire someone with my story as everyone has inspired me as well!!

My 7 Day Water Fast NEW
by: Anonymous

HELLO! big awesome news; I just completed a 7 day water fast and lost 15 pounds, I feel the best! My goal for this fast was to end my binge and night eating disorder, gain control over my life. It defiantly starts with the mind, and now I am more excited to live life! This was the best journy I have ever pushed myself through because it made me the person I want to be, and now I can enjoy meals without that urge to binge after. I am considered going longer then 7 days on just water, because I have no appetite and a decent amount of energy but most importantly a sweet sweet happiness!

Water fasting for 5 days already NEW
by: SHynara

Hi everyone!
I have been water fasting for the last 5 days and I am finding it hard. I cook food for my family everyday and surprisingly don;t find it hard at all. I am kinda happy for them that they can enjoy the food and any drink they want. Thankfully my husband is very supportive and my two children don;t really realize yet that I am not eating. Ideally I would love to go for 40 days and lose as much weight as possible but I am taking each days as it goes. I need to lose at least 50lbs but it is shifting surprisingly slow. In 5 days I only lost 6lbs. Is it slow? I am currently 172lbs. If anyone is at the same stage I would love to have a fasting buddy please.
GOOD LUCK AND STAY SAFE

First Extended Water Fast!
by: Anonymous

I've fasted for a day at a time, and the last time for three days. I felt completely drained and decided to break it. In retrospect, I would've been fine, I was just ill prepared. Today was my Day 1 and I'm hoping to go for at least 10 days. I know I can do it, I just need that positive encouragement. Hunger doesn't really bother me, it's the anemia and the thought of food that kills me. Today, my classmates sat around eating some very delicious foods and I had to just hold my own and stay focused. I'm committed! I guess you'll probably want to know the reason I'm fasting. I've recently become Vegan and also would like to convert over to eating only raw live foods. Unfortunately, I've had a mad sugar addiction for the last while so that makes it a bit more difficult. Once I finish this fast, I'll transition to my 100% Vegan diet and focus on my health!

I'm beginning a ten day water fast tomorrow. I've been trying the last few days to go through with one, and it seems each time I gave into food ( primarily junk) it was cause for a greater motivation to follow through!
I'm fasting to lose weight. I'm at my heaviest around 140 and want to return to my average of 110-115.
Let's hope I make it this time!

30 day fast
by: Anonymous

Hi, I am new here and have decided to try a 30 day water fast for my physical and mental health and weight as well. For the last three years I have been losing my voice and feeling overall bad. I have also been overweight for the last three years as well. I have had check ups to ensure there is nothing serious wrong and my doctor has suggested it may be linked to being overweight. I am at 200lbs today. This is my 2nd day on my fast, I began at 207lbs. I have completed one 18 day fast five years ago for detoxing, I quit smoking and did well on it but it was sooooo difficult. I am not usually hungry, just my mouth wants the taste of food. I need to get healthy both physically and mentally. I am hoping this will give me the boost I need. I will continue to update and any help is so appreciated.

UPDATE: 21 Day Water fast (DAY 15)
by: Anonymous

Hello, Hello!

Its me, Krystal again, and I wanted to inspire you with my progress so far.

This is my last week fasting (I'm done on next Monday) and I cannot wait to snack on fruit, salads, and other vegetables! (I know the first thing I'm going to eat too; a TOMATOE! omg I love em' to death)

The last time I listed my progress, I said, there would be some trouble for me, because of no pain I wasn't experiencing - boy, was I wrong! to be honest, the only discomfort I ever experienced, was feeling sluggish every now and then, and occasionally I'd be out of breath when I would walk (of course, I'm walking 5 miles every other week)but other than that, I feel and felt completely fine. I did have my period last week, and it completely dragged out longer than usual. (like 3 more days) but any hunger pains or cravings? Nope, none. The only problem I have is the bad breath; the more I brush my teeth and tongue, the worst it gets! Either way, I try to carry my toothbrush with me, and make my contact with the outside world to a minimum.

I guess I'm one of them lucky fasters, that don't get the cranks, or the pangs. or pain. (you all must hate me XD)This is my longest fast yet, and god has been incredibly kind to me.

I do randomly think of food.But it doesn't drive me crazy. (Though sometimes, I do make myself hungry.) Hell, I even have a bookedmarked section thats labeled vegetarian recipes! Winning half the battle, is being prepared, and I've already got my list of smoothies and vegetables that I am planning on buying Sunday. I want to establish healthy habits as soon as possible; take heed.

My positive symptoms include: a much youthful appearance (I'm 20) so now I look like I'm at least 15... that being said, my skin has cleared tremendously, I didn't even breakout when I was on my monthly cycle. my scars faded to the point where they are barely noticeable. most of those hard to reach places that fat usually builds up are gone, and toned. I reckon I've lost at least 2 pounds of body fat by the last week.

I consider myself fit for a woman, considering how I jog every other day (before fasting) and weigh-train. with this fast, I'm even more excited to workout, and maintain this body that I've managed to acquire. unfortunately, I've dropped at least 2 cup sizes, in bra terms, so i need to go shopping...

This fasting experience has been quite liberating. I am able to get things done, and establish more so what is important in my life. and since I'm not in school, I take time to study on subjects that interest me with ease. I'm almost sad to end this fast, but I know my tongue coat is getting clearer and clearer by the day, and when it gets finally cleaner, it means its time to end it.. I'll be sure to do this more in the future, and maintain a much healthier life style. :)

I will update next Monday on me breaking my fast! Thank you all for listening to my rant! Hope it helps you all!

UPDATE: 21 Day Water fast (DAY 7)
by: Krystal McIntosh

I find myself no longer hungry. I occasionally have food dreams, but thats all...
I've lost noticeable weight on my face and stomach, even on my legs. I was 145pds to begin with, and at a 5'4" hourglass frame no less, so needless to say, I'm sure I've loss at least 5-10 pounds. pretty drastic; I don't have a scale ( I'm not a believer in any of that junk.) and am just estimating. :)

Each day, I feel better, and better; yet I find myself feeling lethargic towards the evening, with random muscle pains, and an incredible urge to go to sleep.

today I walked 8 miles (4 miles there and back) across town just to go to my favorite park! I loved hearing the sounds of river, and rain and for the first time in quite a while, I found peace and solace in my surroundings. The first 5 days of hell were worth all the 20 minutes I spent there. :)

I am really looking forward towards the rest of this week. I'm actually starting to feel sad that this week will go by fast, and I'll only have one more week of fasting; I find myself enjoying life more, and being able to prioritize the important matters. My dreams have been helping pick out a career and my intuition is as strong as ever. Out of the blue, I had an urge to turn my head, out of the feeling someone was watching me, and low and behold, I turned to find myself approached by a man, who wanted to ask me out... he said, that I just "glowing" and couldn't help but stare. lol

People, if you fast, your skin will clear and your face; hell your skin will give off a natural glow.

I'm getting all the benefits of the fast that I've been expecting. Its a love hate relationship, that you find rewarding.

I will update a week from today, or possibly sooner!

doing a 21 day fast after tons of mini fasts.
by: Krystal McIntosh

Hey there! just wanna give out and inspire hope to those who aren't feeling like the can't water fast -- especially for long periods of time.

I am currently on day 3 of my water fasting of 21 days.

since last May (before prom) I wanted to lose weight so i could feel comfortable while wearing my prom dress. I fasted for a week, and low and behold, everybody thought I was stunning! I was extremely pleased; More importantly, I found out my limits, and realized Im much stronger than I found mentally; I enjoyed the moments of clarity and self awareness that I had gained for fasting. Periodically I have fasted at least 10 times up until now, with one day fasts, one meal fasts,alternate day fasts.. until I realized i wanted to get a deeper cleansing... I needed to do a longer fast.

as frightened as I was, here I am. on day 3. before I fasted my first time, I was on a typical teenage diet. tator tots for lunch, breakfast cereal in to morning, canned goods at night. After prom, I realized my body wanted raw foods. I switched to a much healthier lifestyle ( don't get me wrong, I splurge every now and then) and find that my body eases into the fast alot easier, and makes the fast alot less painful.

so far, just of now, I'm feeling a bit dizzy, but its because I've been moving to fast when I get up. Other than that, the psychological need for food is sudden, every now and then... and my tummy doesn't want it. this has been one of the easiest fasts so far... I'm a bit nervous now of next week. Usually it happens like this; the pain you feel now,the less pain you feel later; and vice versa. I take it my 2 week will feel worse than ever.

I'm glad. this is gonna be fun.

Probably wondering why I decided to fast. I'm fasting to gain more self discipline, and to find that self awareness that I had a few months to go. My life isn't going well as planned; and I've noticed fasting helps with my decision planning and and gives me confidence in all my actions;

I mean, c'mon! if you can water fast for 21 days, you can pretty take on anything else that frightens you! fasting on water for just 21 days is quite an accomplishment, and not that many people can say they've done such a feat.

if I feel too, I will definitely end the fast later, see how i tend to want to stay on it longer than i intend. just another 4 days at least.

I am excited, and will update according to how I feel.

good luck to you all in your journey! I'm here for you!

21 days
by: Anonymous

Finished 21 day water fast, working full time shifts. Did not record weight loss as this was not my objective.
Meditation did improve but perhaps not as much as I would have liked.
As expected, a little postural hypotension, but more so when resting rather than working.
Did I yearn for food? Not really. And now as I slowly make my way back into eating, fresh veggies and fruit is what excites me.
My first tomato eaten over 4 days was delicious. Apples crunch like I never remember. Steamed broccoli divine.
I only consume very little at a time but feel very sated.
Best wishes to all in their endeavors.

Omly Water
by: Gerry

I been drinking water for six days lost 17lbs. First couple of days really hunger and off an on severe headaches I know the first week theirs a huge amount of discomfort you really need to know your body are have a doctor keeping tabs on you. I don't know how long I will stay on this fast. From past experance
after a week it can get dangerous because you start filling so good. I do my normal routine at about half pace when exercising I break a sweat but take it easy. Don't be alarmed by the gross waste that comes out of your body.
I get the most out of praying to my Lord and reading the Bible while I do the fast.
GOOD LUCK GOD BLESS
