funny you ask...im in the middle of a fast as we speak.
IT is something i do from time to time when i feel my body is asking for it.
The body can sustain itself for a while without food and specific nutrients, but is essential to any long term fasting, i also drink small amounts of
coffee when i fast, no cream or sugar.
The first few days are always the hardest, the stomach pains and the nausea can be a tempting reason to fold but its worth it if you dont.
About the third day everytime (the point i am at now) i notice that i begin to sleep less and still have energy, if not more, than i normally would,
but by the end of the week i find my stength draining and i do become more tired. that is usually the point i decide to start eating again.
Dont ever end a long fast with a huge meal full of carbs and protiens.
I will only eat fresh and organic foods (no animal product, flesh, milk or otherwise) for the next week or two and then i will slowly begin to
introduce animal protiens, poultry and fish are good starts.
Once you start on the carbs and heavy protiens you will feel a change again, this is what i beleive is my body reverting to old food addictions once
This time i have decided not to reintroduce carbs and heavy protiens, i am only going to eat frsh fruit vegies, fish and poultry, mabe some dairy
every now and then
just my perspective, good luck to ya and good health
