I'm water fasting. After months of failed dieting and a lot of frustration, I've decided I'm going to fast and drink only water for the next several days. I've read a lot of articles and watched many videos about water fasting and concluded that it's something I want to do for several reasons: To loose weight, to cleanse myself of toxins, reestablish some healthy eating habits and to prove to myself that I have the will power and perseverance to tackle this personal challenge. This will be a physical and mental battle. I'll keep you posted with daily updates.
Currently its 6:00pm. I worked all day and, surprisingly, the hunger didn't bother me too badly. I drank about a liter and a half of water while I worked away at my desk. I first noticed that I was hungry around 9:30am. By this time I typically break out a sandwich and mow down. I did have a headache that came and went, off and on, most of the day. But it never got too bad. I didn't take any headache medicine for it. I think that fasting didn't bother me too much today because I would often check online and read a little here and a little there about other people's experiences and success. Here's a great website I am using as my information source and guidance through this journey: allaboutfasting.com
