It was brutal. As the day progressed I became increasingly fatigued. Then I began to feel awful. The rule of thumb when you attempt a water fast is if you begin to feel ill you must stop. So I did. I was too uncomfortable to feel ‘defeated’. I was glad to stop and recover.
Refeeding after a fast must be done slowly and carefully. I started with one ounce of juice in a large glass of water. An hour later I repeated it. I began to feel better immediately. I did that once more and went to bed.
I fasted a total of 50 hours, taking only water throughout the day. I lost 8 pounds.
Only one strand of hair fell this morning when I combed my hair. I can’t explain it, but it sure is interesting.
