I'm on day 11 of my long Water Fast (plus two days where I began but ate something in the evening the two days before I started and stuck with it completely) and hoped to go until I felt the true hunger that is talked about in here. My question is, will I feel that hunger if I still have extra fat on myself or no? I don't want to go beyond 30 days since I am still pretty new to fasting (I've fasted 5, 4, & 2 days before this working up to this longer fast). Does the true hunger only show up if there's not the fat to feed on? I am fasting mostly to heal myself. I'm sick of being sick. I've been congested for about 4 years and have had intense itching all over from what I think is Histamine Intolerance . From what I've read it sounds like leaky gut could cause this and giving my body a break to heal just made sense. I still feel hungry every single day though. Probably psychological since I love food and have been cooking for my kids throughout the fast.
