    This probably sounds dumb but does black coffee break a water fast? I usually allow it but I know it has calories.

    Hey everyone! I have a question about prolonged fasting (around 30 days). I personally have never done such a long fast before, my maximum was 7 days and it went quite well. I know I'm physically capable of doing it, but I'm nervous about the consequences after the fast. Will it permanently...

    So I've heard conflicting opinions on this and was wondering what the majority say. Some say any food or drinks at all other than water break a fast while I have also been told that as long as its under 50 cals you remain in ketosis and are still in fasting mode. Please tell me your take on...

    So I've been trying to fast lately, and I've been experiencing this problem where around the 24 hour mark I start vomiting. It's like my stomach is so empty it's protesting and I just start throwing up bile. I thought it was because I was taking my meds on an empty stomach, but the timing...

    i personally like to have water (ofc) esp with 0 cal liquid enhancers like the koolaid ones or mio, coffee with non dairy creamer and sweetener, various teas, non dairy milks, smoothies, milkshakes, plain yogurt and ice cream (like plain vanilla), apple sauce, etc. i don’t usually have more than...
  6. Starting at a higher BMI
    Hi Streaks! I just downloaded the "LIFE fasting" app to track the hours I don't eat. I'm new to the app, but I believe you can make a "circle" of other users. I found a few links in the fasting forum but being almost twice the weight of everyone who responded intimidates me, so I'm here. If...

    I've been fasting and purging everything for the past week I think? I lost 7 lbs, and I don't want to stunt my weight loss, but God I feel so weak. My head hurts, my hearts pounding and my chest hurts, and every time my mom asks me to do something it takes a pep talk for me to just get up and...
  8. Fasting and Cleansing
    What period of time do you think someone could safely fast for if they only consumed water, tea, coffee, and maybe broth every now and then? (I'm not including juices because they might spike blood sugar too much, but we can discuss fresh vegetable juices or diet juices if anyone is interested.)...

    So I just got an email from a producer about an audition opening this Saturday which is HUGE but.. I need to lose at least 5 pounds by the in order to be at least relatively happy with myself. I don't know why but somehow in my messed up head, that is my goal for deserved happiness so I'm...

  11. Anorexia Discussions
    Hello! I was wondering if anyone wanted to fast with me soon? I'm starting mine later today but anyone can start anytime. If anyone has a preferred amount of time to aim for I'm fine with talking about that. And liquid fasting is fasting too so that's welcome! I just want someone I can fast with.

    Hi, guys. So let me preface this by saying I'm not AN diagnosed, so I apologize if I'm invading your space. So, I recently went on a 54 hour face (intended to be 72 hrs but ended up taking my girlfriend on a dinner date) and since I broke the fast, I've been having extreme abdominal cramping...

  14. Fasting and Cleansing
    Hi guys - the longest I've ever fasted was 24 hours and I want to go longer, but every time I pass a day I start to get weird. Not because of hunger, but anxiety. I start to question how long I should go... ("maybe I can go a few more days? but what if I binge? if I have some gum does that ruin...
