my tongue is coated and i heard its just the detox.im approaching day six so am probably detoxing pretty well, i would assume..should i use this as an indicator of when to break my fast..meaning when it is pink am i done detoxing..
Well, a coated tongue certainly is a very commonly stated symptom of fasting detox. The return of a coated tongue to normal pinkish color along with the return of hunger are usually the signs one looks for as signals that the body is ready to break the fast.
However, as I've stated before, the feeling of the return of true hunger most often doesn't occur for the average 1 to 3 week faster. The return of true hunger is not just a sign that the body has detoxed as much as it can during a fasting session but a sign that the body has used up whatever reserve it has to sustain your body and will now procede into the state of true starvation unless the fast is broken within the next day. The average faster will seldom reach this state.
If you can, wait until your tongue regains its healthy color (assuming the true hunger sensation doesn't occur first), then I would say it was up to your own sense of judgement as to when you want to break the fast, only of course, up until the point that you may in fact get that true hunger sensation, upon which it is time to absolutely break the fast.
Again, it's wise to have any fast longer than 7 to 10 days supervised by a professional, especially if one intends to go the distance, but of course you know this. :-))
thanx for the info but i broke it today:( ive pissed off a lot of people and everybody seemed to give me a "what for" today..here and on the general forum..i couldnt take it..i broke and made a fresh glass of juice, ate a strawberry, and had a little scoop of natural peanut butter(dont think the PB was a good idea)i think next time ill just keep the fast to myself..i guess its good i made it halfway through day seven.thanx for your post though..
I tried to answer your question about the white tongue, but after three failures to post, I shut off my computer and went to bed. How I wish I had tried harder. Congratulations on doing as well as you have. I've been fasting for years and never made it 7 days on water only. I am so sorry about your negative experience with Curezone, I've not read all the threads, so I'm not sure what is going on. However, you feel you have not received all the support you needed and that makes me feel bad. I can't speak for anyone but myself, but I hope you will forgive me for not jumping in and being more supportive. I was badly hurt by some comments a couple of weeks ago and haven't been posting much. Best of luck in your future. Whether or not you continue here, I hope you will not remain angry.
