    Ridiculous luck. I water fasted for 4 days and went to have some sushi as a reward (bbq eel, 4 pieces) and ended up throwing everything up because it gave me food poisoning LOL. Guess this fast is gonna be a week because I can’t keep anything down. Hilarious luck. Dropped 5lbs though.

    I've never heard anyone talk about this, so I was wondering if anyone else has this too: whenever I fast, the first two days are usually fine. Then on the third day, I feel really bad, a bit like if I had the flu: hot flashes, muscle aches, hot head and a bit of a headache, feeling weak and...

    I posted about this in a separate forum a few moments ago, but fasting and cleansing seems a little empty at the moment, so I figured I'd post here as well. I've been fasting for about 44 hours now, and I'm not doing very well, I feel absolutely awful, dizzy, and so absolutely out of it. I'm at...

    I’m 44 hours into my fast, I feel absolutely terrible. I feel dizzy, light headed, and like if I wasn’t sitting down already I would have absolutely passed out by now. I really want to get to 72 hours, or even more! But I feel absolutely horrible. I’m drinking Diet Coke to see if that helps, but...

    When I fast, especially over 24 hours, I get this weird feeling that I should be "seizing" (idk if this is the right English word), but I'm not? Like my muscles aren't moving, but I have that weird feeling, and I can't find a comfortable position because my muscles just feel, wrong... Except...

    I can't believe I'm back in this forum after so many years. (This is a new acc.) I cannot believe I've relapsed this far, and how quickly it has happened. I can't believe I'm back in this, again. To get the introduction out of the way: I am a 21 year old (5'4, 155lb) who has struggled with...

    I don't tend to post much on here, but I've been following and keeping up with some discussions over time. As of 5 days ago, I started taking Ashwagandha to lower the stress I get from uni. Ofc I've been hearing all over social media about how prolonged ingestion leads to emotional numbness...
