Water Fasting - Day 17

Sunday, July 01, 2012

So, it's day 17 of my water fast, and even though my plan was to end the fast on day 15, as you can see I decided to extend the fast. I will be fasting until day 21. I extended the fast because I don't feel that my body is done detoxing. I have a slightly bad taste in my mouth and my tongue still has a white coating which are both signs of toxins being released.

But other than that, I feel great! My current weight is 140.4 and in case you don't remember I started my fast at 158.4 lbs.

I'm not trying to influence or encourage people to fast, I am just sharing my experience. I will update more often once the fast is broken.

I hope everyone's weekend is going well!

My vlog:

Have a great rest of your day!

    I've been drinking only water for the past 17 days. It's safe when you are monitored by a physician. I actually just saw a video on youtube of a woman who was attempting a 30 day fast and ended up having to go to the ER on her 5th day because she was dehydrated and her vitamin A and K were in the negatives. It's definitely not for everyone and being monitored while on an extended fast as a precaution is a must!

    Congratulations on your weight loss. Just to make sure I understand your blog, you have been living off of water for 15 days right? If so that's tough. Is that safe?
