Hi everyone

Is there anyone who is doing 21 days water fasting in this month? Please let me know since I'm starting from 7th of Jan for 21 days and would like to keep in touch with those who are doing it

Thanks Shannas

Water makes up the majority of our body. It is fundamental to our normal body processes internal and external, our organs all need it to function and maintain proper healthy working order. And yes, lots of food contains water (especially if you eat a lot of fruits during this time.) All that being said.. WHY WOULD YOU EVER WANT TO DO THIS!?

Unless you purposely compensated by having tons of watermelon-esque foods, this could be very hazardous. What is the potential benefit being sought?

@Snow, water fasting is very good for your body. I did a 7-day green juice fast (no sugars, only cilantro, chard, cucumber and celery) and reduced the inflammation and pain of a chronic condition from let's say 8 to 3. I choose the green juice instead of water fast because of the nutrients, but the water fast is documented to cure even cancer. In Europe it's widely used. Basically, when you stop giving toxins to your body, they are allowed to heal.

@Snow, (cont) Toxins that are stored all over your body are released when the fat is burned, and since the liver has had some rest, he's able to process them. I've read a couple of books on fasting, but this is the only one I remember the title "Fasting and Eating for Health" by Joel Furhman

@Snow - It seems like you think that water fasting is not having water. It's actually the opposite, having only water:

Indeed. Silly thought. This makes a WHOLE lot more sense.. Sounds like a good idea. =]

@Snow You are silly! <funny> "Sounds like a good idea" No it's NOT. How quickly you forgot your recent electrolyte imbalance. Too much water & too little sodium can be a lethal combination. BTW, did you read the article SR posted?
