    antithesis Hello

    Have fun with it Trish.

    I myself fast occasionally. I'm never really sure exactly why I do it, but I have found that it frequently brings some clarity to my life and I've had some really good spiritual experiences while fasting. I think it's a worthwhile thing to do every once in a while.
     
  6. altho... i havent eaten all day and i am hungry....

    i can do this though.

    not a good idea unless you have done what you should ahead to cleanse the body before you actually stop the intake of food and most liquid. Cleansing including no substances, only veggies or fruits before you start for at least 5 days and the 72 hours before a fast you have at least 8 oz of water PER hour on average.

    Also you need to have a pure diet to start with again and introduce slowly, first day after only clear liquids, maily water, second vegetable liquid and fruits, third a comibnation of both and finally fourth solids. Otherwise you are going to be ill.

    Wish you well but you will not cleanse and instead feel ill if you do not prepare you.

    Three days won't kill you. Drink lots of water, though - especially if you intend to do some purification. Good luck. Hope it's worth the ordeal.

    Nope, you posted that you were smashed last night and took, I believe, something to calm you.

    For safety please then do not fast for at least 48 hours and have nothing but fruits and veggies for that time and also gallons of water. Then fast if that is what you wish to do but not before you detox from what you already have in you.




     
  14. okay, heat...

    that's what ill do then.

    thanks.
