    This is based on my own personal experience and your experience may vary greatly so take everything I say with a grain of salt and get to know your own body and triggers over what other people say.
  2. Fasting and Cleansing
    I've attempted strict water fasting many times over several years. I get so tired of all the info online saying that once you get past day 3 or 4, you feel better: no hunger, more energy, brain clarity. Some people even hold down their normal day job while fasting, not to mention exercise! I...
  3. Fasting and Cleansing
    Has anyone experienced and found a way to relieve back pain and general muscle aches while fasting? I've looked online and the general consensus seems to be that it could be caused by electrolyte deficiency, but I have been supplementing daily. Outside of that it seems like people haven't been...

    I've used fasting to change my weight a lot. I've used long fasts to get from an overweight BMI to normal bmi, I've also used it to get from a normal BMI to an underweight one. The most I've done pure water fasting in a row is 14 days and I've got there 3 times so far (gonna be attempting to...

    Hi! A newbie to fasting here. I decided to start a 5-day / 120 hour water fast yesterday. At the moment it's been ~24 hours so four days to go. Unsweetened tea and coffee is okay too. My feeling is pretty okay at this point. A bit light-headed, though. The worst part is this endless burning...
  9. Fasting and Cleansing
    Well hello there. I'm on my way to 100lbs. I hope to get there by New Year's, but if I'm good, it'll be sooner. I plan to go for as long as possible each week, consuming only black coffee, iced tea, and clove cigarettes. I'm gonna try to take supplements, but that doesn't always work out...

    Destroyed thyroid here. Do yall still take your meds when you fast? Does it help with your metabolism/energy/hunger? I've fasted over a week (before being diagnosed) and felt like death. Would love to complete a full month or more.
