I fast every year for 24 hours over Yom Kippur, and, additionally, in the past, have fasted for 2-3 days at a time, just because. I agree, for whatever reason, that Day 2 is the hardest. Straight up fasting is not the healthiest thing you can do to your body, so, make sure you have water or, as redkat does, juice, diluted or not. Maybe a piece of fruit here and there.

Do you guys have the "40 hour famine" in the USA? It's a World Vision fundraiser where you fast for 40 hours and get sponsored for it. I have never found it difficult at all, I've just drank dilute juice and water and maybe a barley sugar here and there. I find you feel really good afterwards!

I fasted during Ramadan while in Mali. 1 month, but of course that includes eating in the evening and the morning. What I can say is that going without food for long periods of time does tend to focus the mind. You reach a point where it becomes easier.

In my humble one, if you dont have a valid reason to fast (such as a pending colonoscopy or ramadan), then it is not worth the stress to your body.

I did the same this year. It was a really good experience overall, but I guess quite different than fasting for health reasons. In the end you do eat quite a lot when the sun goes down so I don't know if you really get any health benefits, plus not drinking any water for 14 hours is probably not the healthiest thing to do. But it was a great spiritual experience, I recommend it to everybody! I thought it would be more of a challenge, but in the end I kind of enjoyed it... weird

I have done it, too, Chizip.

But reading all this makes me realize that mine was hardcore.

In August 2001 i fasted for two weeks. For two weeks i just drank water. No juice, no nothing.

I felt incredibly great afterwards and even during it.

It was a very surreal experience, the first six days were the hardest.


Some kind of a 3 day juice thing is nothing.

i was thinking maybe january 1st or 2nd would be a good time to do it. get all the toxins out from new years eve, help cleanse the body for a fresh start to the new year. yeah that definitely sounds like a plan.
