Well, I'm now on a water fast. I already finished 2 days. I'm still deciding if I should make this into a 10 day water fast.. But I'm thinking since I just came off a 21 day juice fast, then had 5 days of a loss of self-control by bingeing on mostly carbs (white bread with looots of butter, cookies, nuts, seafood, butterscotch bars, chocolate, etc.. but, thankfully no meat), I'm just going to let my body decide for me when I should break this water fast just to knock me back to my senses and start eating right.. I had so many plans of eating just fruits and vegetables for a week after my juice fast.. Sigh. I guess I just didn't plan well enough. I got too overconfident. Sigh.. At least, on the positive side, I'm doing something about it. :) And for that, I'm glad.
So, about my fast. All I've been drinking for two days now is water. And green tea. I needed the caffeine. Now I think I'm addicted to Moroccan Mint Green Tea. Hehe. To the experienced fasters out there, is it okay to drink green tea while water fasting?
I saw this website: http://www.falconblanco.com/health/fasting.htm and read about cleansing crises, etc. During my juice fast, I was kinda surprised that I didn't have any detox reactions much. Now, I'm thinking it might be insomnia. Insomnia was listed as one of the possible cleansing reactions. I've had insomnia for weeks now! It really sucks.. I'm even thinking of taking some sleeping pills but I don't think that would be good while detoxing.. I've still got some other things to try to get rid of this insomnia before I totally tear my hair out from frustration. I hope they work. I love my hair. Haha!
Thanks to those who have encouraged me. :)
