Didn't really do it to jumpstart anything, just to get my butt in gear for another round of fasting:-) Within the same 24 hours I welcomed the Great TOM:-) For me it is early, BUT I have NO cramps AT ALL which was very very odd but I am not complaining:-) I feel like I have blown up like a balloon though! Which sucked because I wanted to show the weight loss progress, but hopefully by my next weigh in, (next Monday), I will have lost something:-)
Today I go back to work and I will be bringing my tea and water. I can't really post what amount of days I will be fasting, for I probably will be taking a Red Ink's approach. Until then, I will be taking it one day at a time. Did run yesterday, powerwalked and washed one of the three vehicles before it started to rain, for I needed to wash another one.....
Well, great job everyone while I get ready for work:-)
I have done a 3 day dry fast in the past, but it was for spiritual reasons. By the end of the third day, I was DONE! I could barely stand without being so dizzy. There wasn't a hunger issue because I realize when my digestive system is at total rest (including no gum chewing), I lose all desire to eat. I go back to work today so it was not feasible for me to continue the dry fast for I work with children in an elementary school.
If you have the time to rest and not be active, you may want to give it a try. I am not sure what the longest period is, I did read during a 2 day dry fasting weight can be between 8 to 10 pound loss, but it also said its mostly water....
Dry Fasting Weight Loss Rates
Fasting weight loss rates are highest with dry fasting. Using an enema then dry fasting for 2 days can drop, 8 lbs. from the colon, 5 lbs. in water and 2 lbs. in body fat. The detoxification is powerful and you can feel health surging through your body as soon as you go back to juicing but the weight loss is really only 2 lbs.
