Hello all, yes it's me, the water faster!
I am still around, and still hungry! I know I said I would keep you updated on my water fast adventure on Day 1, but I've been a little preoccupied with hunger and forgot to write an update.
Well, as we approach Day 6 I say to myself, when is this over! Yep, it's been an adventure and I am taking it one day or I should say one bottle of Smart Water at a time.
How am I feeling you ask? I am feeling great to be honest, I have loads of energy and the initial uncontrollable burping I experienced the first 3 days has finally disappeared.
I've managed to cook everyday, check out my other blog Creole Contessa to see what I've cooked this past week.
I am still trying to decide if I am going to break the fast with a green juice on Day 8.
I am not sure about the green juice just yet. I was thinking about completing 10 days like I read in Dr. Fuhrman's book Fasting and Eating for Health. Only time will tell.
I am also considering Dr. Fuhrman's Eat to Live program after I break the fast.
What I've learned on this journey is that because I've fasted previosuly all the detox systems that most experience like headaches, nausea, joint pain. I had none of that.
I read that the less toxic your body is the less detox systems you experience.
I also didn't weigh myself at all. I wanted to focus on the fast, not the fat, so I stayed away from the scale.
On average in the past I've lost between 2-3 lbs a day while water fasting. But the number on the scale is not important during this water fasting period for me.
I am focusing on my cleared up skin, my bright eyes and the fact that I am only suffering from "mind hunger."
In my mind I want to eat up everything, but physically I have tons of energy so I know it's in my mind.
I am trying to pray away these food cravings I have because I don't like feeling like my cravings are controlling me.
I'll give another update soon folks!
