Day 4 11 y
Today is day 4 of my fast, I feel very tired and sleepy. I walked a lot yesterday. So far I do not have any major detox crisis.
I remind myself everyday I fast, that each day I am getting healthier and doing something positive in my life. I do get really bored and find that I have lots of spare time.
I have decided to blog every other day, for the reason I don’t have any major changes or symptoms from fasting yet. Physically I feel great, I feel a lot lighter on my feet. Mentally it is definitely a battle, even if I am not hungry, my mind still tries to convince me to eat. So, ever ... read more

Day 3 11 y
Day 3 is almost done. I feel really good, I do not feel bloated any more. I still do have some hunger pangs, but it’s nothing I cannot handle.
I did take some laxatives last night, I just felt like I needed a BM to feel comfortable. So day 3 went pretty good. I decided to weigh myself on day 7 or 8.
I hope everyone is doing good on their fast, just stay strong and let the body do what it knows best.

What is Dry Skin Brushing? 11 y
Dry Skin Brushing is a good idea when fasting
Our skin is often called our third kidney because of its role in detoxifying the body. Many toxins leave the skin through sweating, which is why aerobic exercise, saunas, and steam baths aid in detoxification. But a common problem is that our skin is clogged with cosmetics and dead skin cells - so toxins can’t leave our bodies as easily as they’d like. Acne and boils are common signs that the skin isn’t breathing properly, and dry skin brushing is a simple technique that can help.
Our skin is our largest organ, and holistic healer Dr. Bernard Jensen tells us that our skin is actually me ... read more

Day 1 again 11 y
Not giving up, going to fast until I regain health
I just finished day 1 of my fast, I have been struggling very hard to start the fast. I was not mentally prepared to start the fast. But now I think I am ready.
Day 1 has ended and I had very strong temptation. My mind was telling me, just eat and start tomorrow. This time I was determined not to let my addiction to food take control. I am going to trust god and let him guide me through this fast. I just found time was going by very slow today.
