Anybody have any experience with fasting? Im doing a three day  fast and today was my first day.I did cheat and eat two grapes today but I figured it was ok since they are about 90% water.It's been a really hard day since I have roasted chicken in the fridge and brownies in the kitchen. I will incorporate green smoothies tmrw then eat solid fruit on the third day. If anyone has had some experience with this please lend some advice Thumbs Up.

LOL


there are many types of fastings btw. One can fast w/ veggies only, fruits only both or water/tea only. You can fast because of a reilgous tradition, for medical reasons or personal reasons. Like if you talk too much, have a quiet day fast, watch tv/online too much fast from that. Some people fast and mediate and so on and so forth. When I fast I usually fast for a purporse, because me and Mr. Food, we got a thing goingStern Smile

Not that OP is obligated to be detailed, but OP was vague about her reasons other than saying it was "for her health" which leads me to believe this may not be done for legitimate reasons. There is nothing healthy about putting your body into starvation mode through the deprivation of food and nutrition. Her body needs fuel.

just completed the master cleanse 10 days. made it easier cause when i tried the first time i only made it to 2 days then i read the book and thought i should give it another try. you just have to stay focused cause you know why you're doing it.

Other than medically advised, this is the only reason I fast.
OP stay hydrated. Speaking for myself; the temptation lessens after the first day ends because I find myself not wanting to disregard the sacrifice for food.
Plan your days, leave very little down time and keep the confidence up.

Negative. It depends on how long one is doing it and how and their current state of being. Fasting can be very beneficial despite the negative connotation from people who aren't educated on it. People in many cultures fast regularly w/benefits.

Your body won't go into starvation mode in 3 days, let alone a week. It takes a lot longer than that time actually. Your body will feed off of its fat and vitamin reserves until they are depleted.

I fast before I do my low carb low fat, high protein diet. I water fast for three days to get rid of my cravings for sweet and salty foods. Works for me. Everyone is different.

Can you still work out while fasting, or is that too much?

I fast for religious reasons. It makes it easier that way to me, because when I fast for personal reasons, I almost always fail. I agree with the poster F8 who said you can fast other things as well. One thing I like to tell myself is that it's only temporary. And the benefits are great!

Fasting is a very good practice to start. I'd recommend looking into the extensive research that has been done explaining the health benefits of fasting.

I've been fasting since a kid (spiritual reasons) and it's something I try to incorporate into my diet. 

The biggest thing that I've learn is to drink a lot of water. I had to learn the hard way that your body responds to dehydration similar to how it responds to a hangover = no bueno. Stay hydrated (check the color of your urine to ensure hydration) and keep a water bottle with you handy, especially if you are fasting in the warmer months. 

What is the reason for your fast? 

I've done different types of fasting:  no drink/food, juicing detox fasting, etc. 

Have you tried eating dates? When we (Muslims) fast, we usually will end our fast by eating dates. Studies show that dates contain and replenish the same minerals, vitamins, and sugars that our body loses during fasting.

Depends on the type of fasting.  As you progress I'd suggest light exercise. Nothing excessive but just enough to get the body going. Decrease the duration and intensity of exercise as the length of your fast progresses. If you're only fasting for a bout a week, you can resume exercise as normal though some people find it difficult. Listen to your body.

I fasted only once, for 24 hours. The following day my face was glowingStar
It was hard, but I drank lots of water. My stomach felt very small by the end of the fasting-time.
