Re: Water retention while fasting! Puffy and nasty!

Thanks for the reply.

I read the link, it was very thorough and explanatory. A very good read.

So... I'm in two minds. I'm going to try to do the potassium chloride bath... If I can find the stuff without waiting weeks to have it shipped from ebay or iherb. Where would I find it? agri shops or chemists? Tomorrow I will hunt around for it...
Would a juvenile coconut help the matter?... I'm trying to avoid that as it will corrupt the integrity of my fast. Strangely I was jamming up on potassium foods for a good while prior to my fast, so maybe my exercise and academic stress or whatnot has leached this from my body...

My second thought is... I'm starting to think my old frenemy hypoproteinemea might be back to haunt me. I was pushing my body pretty hard and I might not have given it adequate protein supplies... Then I suddenly fast. My body might have slipped below the threshold of healthy protein levels... In which case I may start some catabolic/muscle eating metabolising which may lead to another skin and bones scenario... Would it steady up in my fast do you think?

I'm not sure if it's my organs. I had tests and scans late December/early jan that seed to show I was ok... Bit low on folate and b12 but I had made it out of clinical deficiency.

I'm pretty keen to do this fast as soon as I can. I actually know my prep was rushed and I needed more time to get into shape for fasting following my academic hiatus. I'm too pushed for time. I have allowed 1.5 months to refeed then end of may I have other religious commitments that require my full-100% health. Arrghh.

Maybe try the wait and see approach, have a K-soak... See if I get better... If not I'm going to have to *think/consider* seriously terminating my fast...

Are there any other signs to differentiate between lack of protein and lack of potassium?
