Starting fast tomorrow (15th)

I am starting a fast tomorrow. The first day will be liquids only, and I intend to follow that with two days of no calorie beverages only (water, black coffee, diet soda). Feel free to join in!

Re: Starting fast tomorrow (15th)

I do each Friday for my DH's safety. I am able to go with just water and my multivitamins in the morning, then water the rest of the day. Than again, I'm normally so sickening busy on Fridays' that it makes it easy. I'm one of those people that actually can "forget" to eat, kwim?

Goodluck!!!

Unfortunately I cannot relate to "forgetting" to eat, but I do envy the problem I chosetomorrow because my MIL went home today. I need to fast to clear out my system a bit. I always feel better afterwards and it gets me back on track mentally.

Thumbs up Re: Starting fast tomorrow (15th)

I wouldn't recommend fasting on coffee or soda... Do you have a juicer? Definitely not good for you. If you have a juicer, even a cheap one you can make some delicious concoctions that are both healthy and yummy. One of my favorites is apple pear. Juice 2 granny smith apples and 2 pears, YUM! You can add even more benefit by adding some green leafy veggies such as kale, romaine, green/red leaf lettuce. The sweetness of the fruit will overpower the greens and you get so much more benefit.

Re: Starting fast tomorrow (15th)

Wow mamas! Such discipline, I'm envious! I've never heard of doing this before, don't mean to hijack your thread, but I figured you might enlighten a mama as to why/how you gals do this? I have been feeling like CRUD since I am too nervous to eat lettuce and haven't had a salad in a few weeks.....I could use something!

TIA!!!
