Iam starting my own water distiller business (based in the uk) and i would like to know if any one is interested in purchasing distilled water ? Prices are competitive and once you tried my distilled water compared to tap water/bottled water you will be amazed at the difference the water is 99.9 percent clean of all impurities ie metals, flouride, Chlorine , sewage which is perfect for some one who is attempting a water fast) etc distilled water is the purest water you can get. i can send out samples to serious enquiries only. thanks paul appleby email: milesp @ gmail com
I plan on completing a 40 to 60 day water fast. I have embarked on shorter fasts previously, with a maximum of 21 days. I have enough fat reserves to last me through to 60 days. I am interested in learning about what percentage of the anticipated weight loss will be from fat metabolization, as opposed to water loss. All input will be greatly appreciated.
I feel it is best to enjoy the process and not try to get into details, that probably Science will have difficult time to measure.
Fat decomposition generates also water by that process - so the two are connected. Concerning water retaining/diluting toxins - it is lost most in the first few days. Everything depends on the level of toxicity.
Also important to note is that equally important to the fat as fuel are the other nutrients that the body was supposed to store through good diet. You may run out of the latter faster than the former.
Agree with DL, totally. I would like add, 60 days is impossible on water only fast. I would plan one day at a time, and build up. It is always good to have a subliminal realistic goal, but not mull over, simply staying in the process with the acceptance that your body may ask you to stop at some point.
I have had quite a few fasts where I had to stop in a day or to into the fast. It just did not feel right.
Nutrient reserves are very important, otherwise you will go in starvation mode despite of having good fat reserves.
Expect to lose 1lb per day, initially it may be 2 lb per day with water weight.
If you have not started, eat raw plant based foods for a month and then start a fast.
i have personally been with people who have completed 40 days on water only... start there and see where it goes... you can always do 40 days then a raw vegan diet for a month and 40 more days... we have to learn hoe to eat.. not eating is easy
it was at a fasting retreat... I saw 3 people do 40 days on water. none were obese at the start.
at the end one had legs the size of my arms... TOTALLY emancipated. He was in his 20's spend the last 20 days of his fast in meditation all day... he was soooo skinny... it was awful. He recovered quite quickly tho... 6 months later I saw pics of him and he was all filled out. The second man also looked way too skinny. the 3rd was a female who looked ok. She started out overweight tho.. the men did not.
Yes I am back... Came home today. 3 days post surgery... they said it was really fast. Guess my juicing is working. Plenty of pain and discomfort, but its time for rest and healing. Thanks for asking. When I get the results from pathology I will let you know
This is my concern: I'm not obese. But I have quite a bit of fat on my body and would like to see it off. I've researched that the body enters into a state of ketosis after all other immediate sources of energy (unused carbohydrates, glycogen in the liver, etc.) have been depleted - a state which may take a few days to enter into.
Were these mentioned individuals significantly overweight, or at the very least, had a significant body fat percentage (I would classify this at 30% and 35% for males and females, respectively)? I realize even with these stats, 40 days (much less 60) might be a stretch.
the two men were not 30%... they became emancipated.. the woman may have been around 30-35%.. she looked good.... if you go on youtube I am sure people have logged in thier 40 day water fast - you can always turn it into a juice fast after day 40.... people on YT have 100day juice fast vids there
The word you want is emaciated, not "emancipated," which has a completely differently meaning. If people really want to use fasting for weight loss, they need to lose probably 8-10 pounds below their goal weight because they'll put that back on easily with just water and food almost immediately if they are not careful.
Nice! I like your good speed of recovery.
Yes, please do let me know pathology data, when available. It would be useful for future fasts.
I have 26% fat, due to not being able to do long aerobic exercise or serious weight training for years now. I look quite slender due to not much muscle mass. This makes me think, fat-wise I can do quite a long fast - maybe at least 30 days, if no electrolyte problems arise. I don't care how I will look at the end, since function and health matter much more, and I have never had problems putting weight, when too skinny.
if you are concerned about electrolytes just turn it into a juice fast last 10 days... OR have some coconut water 1-2 times a day last 10 days....
How about not fasting so much and starting to lift weights?
Just a thought!
Yes I will share my reports! I see the surgeon on Wednesday next week!
OK, thanks :)
I like the coconut suggestion. Weight lifting could be doable only after serious cartilage regeneration and alignment improvement.
I am not concerned for my weight. I look slim. I have cartilage and joint damage - spine and knees - and scoliosis, which make a lot of things painful. Fasting helps. Need to totally avoid processed and cooked, which was hard around family, but progressively easier after I started giving constant feedback on all the bad symptoms coming from the dishes they offer (as in skin reaction, heavy mucus and stronger joint pain).
There is a very old thread on this forum about a woman who went 60 days drinking only water and Crystal Light drinks. She lost the weight she wanted to lose. I recall that people gave her a really hard time about the Crystal Light drinks. Who cares, it was her body. As long as it's non-caloric, you'll lose weight.
Do you know some of the drugs in Ayurveda can help you lose weight..I have searched about them and a few of the top weight loss industries are using those drugs in their products.. I have found it through a drug finder tool at mynahcare but could not find enough information about them...
Hi guys, after failing and failing and failing again and again the last 2 years, i decided that this time is going to be the final time and the time that i will succeed, hence the action of posting it on the net. So my goal is to reach 60 kg down from 82.5 kg that i now am. I began a bit before this post and the way i am going to do it is by drinking water milk and coffee only and smoking cigarettes until i reach my goal of 60 kg. Nothing else, not even gums. I estimate that by the end of April at most, i will be at my desired weight goal. So this will be my journey from 82.5 kg to 60 kg in about a month or so. The reason i post it here is to, if it happens, get some support, which i think will help me a lot. I know smoking is unhealthy and i intend to quit it after i reach my goal, so please don't comment on it, if you may, i only use it to help with the food cravings - a substitute - .I will keep posting here frequently concerning my progress and especially when i reach certain milestones. As of now i stand at 82.5 kg ( i am 1.77m btw). Based on experience i will be 76.5-77kg in 6 days from now. Anyway i'll keep posting as i said and cya soon ^_^ .
It seems to me that you would be better suited to a juice fast. This provides enough nutrients to move on with daily life but also causes weight loss and detoxification. I understand that you're wanting to keep smoking as an alternative to food cravings but I have to say that this may be the best and easiest time for you to quit. If you were to go on a serious water or juice fast you could rid yourself of your nicotine addiction at the same time. With all due respect I don't think your plan sounds like a very good weight loss option. It actually would probably degrade your health. More like a crash diet. If you don't want to do a water or juice fast then just write up an eating plan with plant based foods. You'll shed weight consistently and increase your health. Just remember as in any diet, it's not so much what you do for the duration of it but how you continue afterwards. That goes double for any kind of fast.
Well i can't go back now, as i have promised it to myself. Oh and about smoking, it is not a big deal; i started it only for the duration of this plan. I am not a smoker. Thanks for the consideration, it is just that i can't break the promise.
I agree with fijifaster 100%. This is not even a crash diet, it is a poisoning diet.
Also please be aware that this is a forum for those who seek help with fasting with water only and those who want to help those fasting with water only. You may continue your diary on other fasting forums, but it would be unfair to those on "Fasting with water only" forum.
My thought is that if your trying to heal your body then what is the point of adding another negative vice to replace another? Just doesn't seem like you'd really be doing yourself any favors.. I sure as heck wouldn't smoke that's for sure.
Hello everyone. I've struggled with bulimia for 7 years and recently with binge eating disorder as I've been unable to purge. Over the course of two years I've gained a substantial amount of weight which I was in denial about due to stressful circumstances in my life that kept me distracted. Recently I've had more time to myself and realized what damage I've done to my body. This sent me into a tailspin of straight binging for 6 weeks, consuming as much as 10,000 calories per day. When I meditate, I can FEEL this extra fat on me and it is very distressing. I want to get back to my true self - physically, spiritually, mentally. I feel like I need to do an extended fast and not eat until true hunger returns. I feel like my body is capable of this and it is my mind which tells me this is unhealthy, not realistic, etc. If I'm honest with myself, and look into my soul, I truly believe my body will not want to eat for several months. Today I am on day 3 of my fast. I've only told one person of my intensions, she is a very close friend and said how unhealthy it is and that sent me into a panic attack (I also struggle with severe anxiety). I would like some reassurance from anyone who has done an extended (longer than 30 day) water fast, that what I am attempting is realistic, acheiveable, and healthy. I am NOT trying to destroy my body or starve myself. My intensions I believe are truly good - I'm trying to heal my body and mind and feel this is something I need to do....now. I am also in college and am worried that it will interfere with my ability to concentrate/study. Has anyone done an extended fast while also working and/or going to school? Thank you.
Havn't been to 30 but I've gone 14 and felt like I could have made it another week. Keep in mind I usually am pretty low body fat. I can tell you that your body will be fine as long as you have the reserves. You can always go over to healthpromoting.com and print off some research articles to ease your friends mind. Just remember to focus on fruits and veggies after your fast and you won't have to worry so much about gaining too much wait. If you eat healthy you're body will be the way it is meant to be!
Hi. I am currently on day 19 of a water fast. I read your post with interest because I also have a binge eating disorder and suffer from anxiety and depression. These were factors that led me to take the drastic step of water fasting.
I stopped all medications before my fast because I was concerned with pills on an empty stomach and because I wanted to clear my system so that I could be sure of what I was feeling without mind-numbing drugs.
(I am also morbidly obese which has caused me no end of physical and emotional stress.). =(
I am encouraged to see someone with a complicated emotional and physical history embark on this type of self-healing! My only concern is that you may find the road really rocky if you try to work AND go to school while water fasting. Your fast should be as peaceful and stress-free as possible, enabling you to give your body what it needs, like lots of rest, fresh air, and quiet. Some of the detox symptoms can be pretty gnarly and may cause you to panic if you don't have the space to work through it.
Whatever you decide, try to post daily and share your journey. You will find caring, experienced advice that is sure to help!
Hey there! I completely understand your concerns. I was in the same or at least similar shoes. I've done several short (week long) fasts for warmup for two longer (~1month) fasts. I had a set of symptoms doctors could do nothing about (inability to sleep, headaches, brainfog, complete exhaustion, near-diabetes insulin resistance, complete impotence, etc...).
I thought fasting is bullshit, a religious activity or something similar, but a 3 week fast eliminated almost all of my symptoms and my body composition changed from 20+% fat to about 10-15 and I felt fantastic. I tried fasting only as a last resort without expecting anything from this stupid method because I wanted to die anyway. Your friend says exactly the same as anyone else would say about fasting: "it's unhealthy", "it's bullshit". Just ask average people if you want to accumulate reasons to avoid fasting.
Here is my opinion about your friend's opinion: How does she know that fasting is unhealthy? Currently Science knows nearly nothing about complex chemical mechanisms of our body, this involves normal functioning, medication, nutrition, etc... We are still just experimenting and finding ways that solve problems because we don't yet have an accurate enough map of the body. This is basically the same primitive method humans have always used. So how does your friend know that fasting is unhealthy? Has she tried it?
Basically everything you do has both harmful and beneficial effects. Your food keeps you alive and poisons you at the same time. The important thing is to choose ways where the advantages outweigh the disadvantages. Making smart investments with low risk and high reward like in any other area of life. Most people avoid risks all the time even if it's very low. It is no different with fasting. A long fast is very difficult and during the fast you may feel terrible but I think not so many people have the experience one can have on the first few days of refeeding, especially if fasting cured some severe symptoms.
Fasting, just like anything else is also harmful. Stressed body, high cortisol, weakness, fatigue, etc... But the gifts you get at the end of the fast by far outweigh the difficulties and disadvantages.
Btw, what do you risk by trying it? Do you use your friends opinion as an excuse to avoid trying something difficult?
Evaluate your risks. If they are low or easy to avoid then definitely try fasting.
In my opinion a two week long fast is doable with light work (eg. In working wit a computer in an office) but more than two weeks is a very-very bad idea. I've made that mistake.
Currently I'm in the middle of the 4. week of my second fast with no major problems because I don't work at all, I'm relaxing or doing whatever I want at home. I think I could do even 5 weeks this way, we'll see...
Binge eating: it's a habit and habits are difficult to change. I can also get into a spiral where I consume the contents of the fridge until it's empty. :-) It takes me about two weeks to shed this habit if I fall to the trap. I've got out of this several times by simply not keeping food at home and buying only what is necessary for that day. This way I skipped my breakfast that made me even less greedy during the rest of the day and I've realised that I'm usually not even hungry in the morning. I think unconditionally eating in the morning is just a habit and mental pleasure for most people.
For me losing fat was far from being the best gift from fasting (compared to eliminating my illness) but it was still a huge boost. I remember that I had some bacon on my belly and the bottom of my back and they were bouncing while I was running. :-P I'm far from being anorexic, I love eating, but I have to say that being skinny or having a lean body is just superior both mentally and physically when it comes to athletic performance. I've tried both settings within a single month to be able to make a comparison.
Sorry for spamming your thread but I have some other thoughts that may worth mentioning.
Your friend told that fasting is unhealthy. What about eating? Look at your body, what eating has done to it? So is eating unhealthy? Eating kills!!! Don't eat anymore! :-)
Anything can be unhealthy if used unproperly including eating and fasting. A remedy becomes poison if used unproperly.
Long fasts (3 or more weeks) are difficult to perform and can put heavy mental and physical stress on you. People do this usually to heal searious problems (like my terrible hormonal imbalances). If your goal is only losing weight than you can choose much lighter alternatives. Anyway, a long fast can not be sustained forever and it is good to lose at most about 15-20kgs.
Weigh loss is fastest in the first two weeks of the fast, I would take advantage of that. On the other hand you can make extremely long fasts and lose weigh by drinking juices. Of course low calorie, mostly veggie juices, not the full-of-sugar fruit juices. Using some apples and carrots sometimes to add a bit of sweetness is ok. You can alternate fasting and juicing periods to make weigh loss even faster if you want but you can go just with pure green veggie juicing. By juicing you can avoid the extreme fatigue that is involved with long fasts, you can fast for a very long period to lose a lot of weight, and you can even do some light exercises to keep yourself fit.
After losing weigh: If you return to your previous diet you gain back your bacon in no time. Eating less or not eating is obviously not a sustainable solution. Here is how to change your diet: Look for foods that have high volume/calorie ratio. These foods stuff your belly, you can eat any amount from them, still add little calories. Look for veggie dishes, salads, roasted veggies (yummm). You would be surprised how many ways you can combine and season/flavour/prepare them.Replace most of your refined Sugar based sweets with fruit based snacks. Don't misunderstand me, I'm not asking you to become vegan. I'm just asking you to replace at least 50-80% of your food intake to healthy stuff and eat whatever you want in the rest of your diet. Go and eat a McDonald's menu sometimes. Go to the cinema and crunch buttery popcorn with cola. Go to a sweet shop and eat candies. Eat a fatty pizza. But not all the time. A rule of thumb for me is eating 0 or 1 crappy meal per day. On top of that I'm moderately active (2-3 light training per week and several kilometres of walk per day). This way I haven't gained back the terrible fat mass I had and still, I can eat any amount - of course from the right foods.
I have 24 days left for water fasting until I have to meet up with friends and family so most probably I'll have to break it by then. I read through many posts and found that for some real hunger did not return after 21 or even 30 days, although I did see some say their tongue cleared after 21 days but all the same, they had not experienced real hunger return just yet.
I initially intended to do this for fat loss reasons, but later I became very much interested in its detox benefits too.
My question is if I ended this fast before hunger returns, or even before the symptoms clear up and refeed, can I expect to be able to complete the process on the next fast? I suppose the toxins in my body will be a little less than before the first one?
And also, I intend to drink a few liters of both spring water and Chinese tea like Oolong, Pu'erh and green tea. I hope they wouldn't greatly diminish the effectiveness of detoxing though. or would they?
You can refeed whenever you want to and redo the fast after you have had equal number of days to refeed as many days of your fast. You will gain/ benefit no matter how long a fast you do. Sometimes tongue becomes pink before true hunger returns and vice versa. In any case fast should be broken in any case when true hunger returns.
I am concerned about your plan to break your fast when you meet friends, the pressure to eat may make you eat wrong foods and too much food. If it was only a few day fast it would have been ok, but you are fasting for 24 days so receding has to be very slow and with juices only.
Please do not drink anything but water during your fast, it is not ok to drink teas. You cannot put anything in your mouth, no toothpaste, mouth washes, nothing.
Hi guys! So it is just after midnight and today is officially day 1 of my 40 day water fast. I have done quite a few water fasts in the past, typically ranging from 7-10 days. My longest was 19 days. Hopefully this one will pass that! Will be updating each day on here to keep myself and others motivated! xx :)
Hey, how's it going? Just started mine about three hours ago...already feeling the detox because i was talking some msm supplements and espsom salt and i was fasting here and there for the past week or so. Would lo ve to have a buddy for this, if youre yo for it.
Hi, My name is Emily and I am 16 years of age! I currently weigh 370 pounds (26 stone) and as you know, I am extremely overweight! I live in a very small house with my parents, My room is about the size of your standard store room - Where I have my bed and a few shelves with my clothes on above the bed - This makes it really hard to manurer in my room at my size. My parents are always trying to put me on diets, but I absolutely love my fat when I am at home, but when I am out in the public its a different story. I have always been over weight, as a kid I was always the "Fattest in the class" etc... I have been bullied for being fat in the past which just made me want to eat more and more! At the age of 14 I was 260 pounds (18 stone) and I have always found it hard to walk. In the last 2 years I never stopped eating as I live next door to a small shop which sells a lot of junk food. The only exercise i get is my paper round in which I ride a bike for 10 mins every Thursday and Saturday which gives me the money to buy all my food! (plus meals from my parents) When I am at home, I don't wear clothes as I find them too uncomfortable when they are holding all my fat in. My problem is that now I have left school and I'm in sixth form, I wear my own clothes! I hate wearing trousers as they show off my fat too much so I wear very loose skirt, but they always start to pull upwards every few steps I take! This reveals my stomach which is embarrassing when everyone is looking as my stomach hangs down to just above my knees which makes it hard to hide! I need a way of holding my belly up so my skirt doesn't reveal my bulging belly overhang and my extremely large thighs. I have tried nets and such as you can see in the photos below but they just are not strong enough to hold my shear weight. If any of you have any suggestions then please leave them below as any feedback is appreciated!
Ok, so a family friend is 42 stone and has been told she has 6 months to live, of course she does not want to die and wants help to lose weight. The doctors told her she has 6 months to live because of her size, and they have pretty much just left her hanging. I have been asked to help her lose this weight and of course I will, I was thinking a juice fast for 2 months? I am not a nutritionist, expert, personal trainer or anything of the sort I am just an 18y/o girl willing to help save this persons life. I am also very familiar with fasting and weight loss do's and don't as I have invested a lot of time in researching health, big pharma, cures for stuff etc in regards to my own health issues which I am overcoming.
I believe you have to be supervised medically when carrying out a fast for longer than 30 days especially if you are of that weight, am I right in thinking that? If so should I call her local doctor to help supervise her on this fast?
Is 2 months long enough? I think it would be hard to do a fast for any longer than that amount of time, especially if you do not have much control over food to begin with.
If it is ok for her to do this fast with my help, my plan was to get her to eat healthy meals for a week - no fish or meat just complex carbs veggies fruit nuts legumes and then the next week replace a meal with a juice (20% fruit 80% veg) and then after 3 days replace another meal with a juice and then on the Monday of the 3rd week go full juice and start the juice fasting for 2 months. Then after that do parasite/liver/colon flushes to allow the body to release all those toxins that would have built up over the years from that way of living.
Is it safe for her to do a 2 month juice fast for that amount of time considering her weight and will that be enough time ?
Any help and advice is welcomed and will be much appreciated !!
right now its like 11;30 it'll b tommorrow in 30 min's so the way i see it its been two days of me fasting already lol i know im way ahead of myself but.......lets see hello im new but this is not my first time to fasting i fasted for up to 7 days b4 and as soon as my family found out they basically threw food at me.....so this time im fasting again and im not telling anyone the main reason im fasting this time is because im starting to feel more depressed then ever and i hope fasting can stop me from being sad all the time and get my mind off of it and on 2 other things and mostly i want to loose weight im tiered of being fat ):.anywayzzz i plan on fasting for 26 days. why 26 you say??? well thats my favorite number lol
so here i go it's day 2 lol wish me luck!
Hi... I am just completing my second day.... whoops... its now 12:18 am... so I am officially on day 3.... I would love to keep in touch. My weight is more than yours but just about the same. I am very hungry right now and it sucks. I am not certain how this website forum works, but, I sure would love to talk to you OR anyone who is also going through this... its not that fun right now.. but, I am desparate.
Best of luck to you. One of my main reasons, besides losing weight (I'm like 100 lbs over what they say I should be) is because I have been severely depressed lately. I mean everybody experiences some minor depression throughout life, especially in these hard times, but I haven't been this bad since I was a teenager.
I am also hoping fasting will help me feel happier and I know the weight loss is a big part of it. Seeing the numbers go down so rapidly will increase my mood, and keeping it off or continuing to lose weight on my own after will be an absolute joy. I can't wait to buy smaller clothes, or fit into the ones in my closet at least LOL
I just recently found out that we have our own "INBOX"... it only took me a week to find that out!! It was awesome to see a letter from you. I hope that you are still here so that I can personally express to you how thankful I am to you for reaching out to me.
I am on day 6 today and I am down 11 pounds. I was binging up so much up to the fast that I knew the first pounds would come off quickly. THANK GOD.... now the last 15 pounds will most likely come off slowly. I am so sick of being a "YO YO" and having my weight go up and up at the end of each episode.
Thank you for your prayers. I am praying for each one of us too. Its been interesting, really listening and feeling my body. I am still struggling with the hunger... weird.... OR is that just an empty stomach??? I just don't know. All I know is that I am experiencing something good. I can't seem to diet, but, it seems that I can just turn it off as I am doing now. It isn't easy, that's for sure. But, this seems to be the ONLY way that I can be successful. Does that make any sense???
I still don't know how long that I am going to fast. When does one decide that????
Again, thanks for writing to me. Please keep in touch. I will get right back to you now that I know where to look.
You might all wanna try Markizza Passion Fruit Juice that's packed with all the healthy nutrients we all want for our kids! Or you might as well read the healthy benefits of passion fruits and you'll understand what I mean. I get my Markizza passion fruit in Amazon.
Hi, there are new treatments available but the knowlidge is not commonly shared. I would like to deliver and receive the most up-to-date information with you guys. Help me to create the number one resource of the latest news from the lipoma field. I have created a lipoma board you can Google, just type lipomaboard. I hope to start conversations of alternative treatments and also cures.
I'm sure there are cures available that we just don't know about. One possible cure might be the oxone infusion therapy.
lipoma's are a capsule made from fibrin,which are easily dissolved with enzymes, such as bromelain,nattokinasse and serrapeptase.The body stops producing enzymes when we reach our twenties,so we need to supplement.
Hi,I was interested in your comment on Lipomas. I also learnt about the use of enzymes in this regard I found there is a MD in USA has a Lipoma clinic,using enzyme injections also I think radiofrequency or resonance on the lipomas his succesws rate is around 80%. .Sorry dont know his name though Are you a doctor or are you a Lipoma sufferer?
I have a very large lipoma on my rhs of neck has grown over th last twelve years,I am scared to death of having excision on it as believe there must be a safer approach. I am trying to get alternative treatment on the NHS but is extremely hard trying to find out if these approaches are usede anywhere in UK ,if you know I would be grateful if you could pass it on to me.I need examples of successful cases so I can approach my local health authority,with this info to get them to accept alternative approaches. Thankyou. Greenman
Usually, treatment of a lipoma is not necessary, unless the tumor becomes painful or restricts movement. They are usually removed for cosmetic reasons, if they grow very large, or for histopathology to check that they are not a more dangerous type of tumor such as a liposarcoma.
Lipomas are normally removed by simple excision. The removal can often be done under local anaesthetic, and take less than 30 minutes. This cures the majority of cases, with about 1-2% of lipomas recurring after excision. Liposuction is another option if the lipoma is soft and has a small connective tissue component. Liposuction typically results in less scarring; however, with large lipomas it may fail to remove the entire tumor, which can lead to re-growth.
There are new methods being developed that are supposed to remove the lipomas without scarring. One of them is removal by the use of injection of compounds that trigger lipolysis, such as steroids or phosphatidylcholine
I new just joined up last night. My fiance has a lot of Lipomas on her thighs and arms and even one on her head. She has had some surgically removed but I am searching for other ways to help her.
So far this morning, I read that enzymes might work. It as mentioned to use :
Bromelain, Nattokinasse and Serrapeptase. Nutrition from the inside could make sense. would be interested in anyone who have used this?
I read about a product from Thailand in a gel but several said that that gel was "BS"
Saw several comments about a product from UT called H-Factor dissolve But the link for the web page does not work. I emailed the address listed on the Facebook page but it came back as non forwardable. Anyone have any information about this Trent or his product.
I have read about people using Turmeric but that could be messy.I was wondering if anyone has used it?
I have read about Chickweed and wondered about that?
I have read even on this forum a few have used Castor Oil packs. Anyone have any information on this?
I am just trying to sort through all of these things and find what may actually be working? Thanks Guy Cooper Phoenix, Arizona
Basically background story. I have a pot belly for aslong as i can remember (goes back til my youth). When i was a teenager, i ate ALOt of junk food/convenience food. But for the past 7 or so years i've become quite the health nut. I've never been fat. I had a bit of puppy fat, at one point but that goes back a very long time ago. I'm pretty slim. There have been times when i've been overly stressed or had a bad break-up and lost quite a bit of weight. I'm about 4'9 and at one point, weighed 42-43 kilo's.
I'm normally around the 45 kilo mark. (99.208 pounds/ 7.08629 stones)
My point is, i'm a very slim person. But i have this huge pot belly which has never disappeared no matter what the weight or diet. (As a new user I'm unable to post a picture, but have some)
I'm not sure if it's fat, water retention, permanent bloating or god knows what! I'm not sure if it's normal. I've never seen anyone else (at the beach -ect) with a body like mine. I look pregnant! My gut looks ridiculous.
I'm a healthy person. I avoid processed foods, takeaway. I eat really well. I have a very varied and balanced diet. I include ALOT of superfoods and fresh nutrient rich foods. I usually walk for an hour, about 5 times a week. I was mostly vegan for a year, previously, but now include organic meat in my diet. I have grounding shoes, and wear my zapper regularly. I recently did a 3 day juice fast, and a gallbladder/liver flush. I'm not sure why i still have this belly.
If it's purely fat, then maybe i should invest my time doing 200 sit ups each day. But the question is, why do i have an unnatural fat deposit over my belly? Could it be something more sinister (parasites, a deficiency, a sluggish intestinal track, an allergy- ect?) If so, i'm open to hear about suggestions. I'm willing to try anything!!
With Spring just around the corner here in the Algarve I would welcome anyone who wishes to spend some time away from their peer pressure or home responsibilities who wants to try juice fasting at my farm/forest. I have a log cabin for you to stay in, a good garden for intro and fast breaking organic food, the glorious weather associated with southern Portugal and as a personal trainer for many years I can get you fit too.

I am looking to start a water fast on June 11th 2013 and am looking for someone to do it with me. I am a single mother and after work and taking care of my son I have no time for the gym and just dieting doesn't seem to be helping! Motivation is the key to success right? I am currently at 217 lbs and just looking to lose weight and cleanse my body of all the toxins I have been eating for thebpast 3 years and I am in need of someone to do it with me for just a little extra support. Any takers??
Hi! I'm a 38 year old, single mother of two boys who are 20 & 6...(oldest is married)...
For about 3 years now I have been battling an acne that comes and goes, but when it's here it stays for months.
My health problems gave been many as I had a gastric bypass in '03, (pushing 400 lbs)...Within about 10 months I was almost 115 lbs. weak, and 17% body fat.
I didn't have a nutritionist until I was already extremely I'll... Huge hernias made it hurt to bad to way so I chewed food and spit it out. If I are it I usually ended up throwing up. :(
Anyway, I went through 10months of having to wear a PIkk line in my arm and hooked up to an IV back every night to get protein.
Had to have my stomach stretched a couple times, and blah blah blah blah...
After I started to get we'll it seems like more things begin to happen...too much to explain...Including finally having a hysterecyomy after 8months of menstrual agony. In my heart I know that all these things weakened my immune system and for the past 2 years I have been now been fighting problems I believe strongly have to do totally with demised mites.
What i'm going to tell you may sound crazy, but it is SO true...it's the while reason I started researching online myself to begin with.
We'll, about a yr ago while crashing at my parents house one night ,I was sleeping in my dads comfy recliner and had a dream about myself lying there ...
I Drembt that there were these worm like creatures that kept going In and out of my face and some in my arms and around my neck...
I Drembt that they had Lil
Arm hooks etc... And it was just a really freaked out dream because I could feel it as if it was really happening...worms busting through my cheeks and coming out my nose. When I awoke I was tripping out, and there was something...(I personally believe it was God showing me) in my head saying "Go look up face parasite on the computer..."
I was SO amazed when images of worms looking like what I had seen in my dreams appeared on my computer screen...
I began researching, cut as much Sugar as possible, and started taking Black-Walnut hull, wormwood, And Echinacea. I also did a body colon cleanse...
It helped a lot for a while, but soon I was not paying attention, thinking the herbs had killed it all.
In June 2012 I had an allergic reaction to glue the used to close me up during hysterectomy. I ended up getting that Metro gel, and I can't even remember why, butI started using a Lil on my face...It started to help, but wasn't long before it was back.
The past 3mthshave been incredibly discouraging. I really want to get a test done and get products I need to deal with stuff, but things are so expensive.
I wish I could post a photo...my face id covered in acne... And big bumps on my cheeks that aren't acne,.but more like books are full of clear fluid and lots of white dry skin and etc. The white stuff deep inside made my mom even ask if it could be merca.
I also had a pap smear done along with any std's or etc...blood work and all,..came back clean EXCEpt for a bacteria that none of the Drs even knewwhat it was. (same prob happened before and afterhysterectomy as well)
People think i'm just picking at my face, and I won't deny that it's hard not to. I need help. I just found out i'm allergic to wheAt,.and wondered if that had any
I'm tired, embarrassed, humiliated, and feel all alone... I WAS trying to dte a bit, but have had to turn guys down because i'm embarrassed aboutmy face. I any to hide away in my house and not see anyone. I got new couch because I kept feeling the creepy crawlies on my neck,fax and.hair while lying in the recliner at night.
I found n awesome sight called shakespearean.com, and got info... But that Lotion is $50 a bottle. :(
I'm going to er rid of my mattress and shampoo my carpets...using a blow up mattress if I can find one cheap.
(by the way, there is a comforter and pillow now that Costco had been advertising, and it actually kills the mites....I can try to get more info if interested.)
Not sure how this will all look when added to site, because I have to do all on phone...hope it's understandable. My phone thinks it needs to change my words air of times...
I would surebe grateful to get a bottle of that stuff the guy a few comments up had if possible. I would like to even get to know people on here more personally..it helps to know i'm not.alone in this. It sure feels like it. -can't remember if that's allowed I not though. Don't want to breakkm rules...I really appreciate whomever started this site.
I really hope you can help me... I feel old, and scarred up... Only down to wearing mascara,.lipstickand SOMETIMES eye liner. It really bothers my eyes though. My face is...well, it's looking like a woman on crack who picks her face. Even my chest...and I literally have felt like I've seen white worm looking stuff.come out of around my neck at bottom. My face won't heal...everyone keeps asking if I could have gotten a disease from my ex.
I'm hitting rock bottom hard...want to start out fresh. I'll find a juicer someway,.and get whatever I need. Please someone,.help me to know what things are most important to do and spend money on. Could I have worms in my gut and not know it? The Drs didn't understand where the bacteria came from...they said probably a cyst...but could the cyst be from a parasite???
Thanku for listening...
Sounds like you've had a miserable time of it. A few people I know have used Barefoot's Sprays like 1 11 and 111 being the hottest. That will kill skin parasites very well. It's good for everything. Go to http://www,oldfashionedspices.com
and order some if you wish. I like the Spray 111 with red pepper in it that kills parasites. To me it's not hot and tastes good. Nothing in it will hurt you. He's the herbalist with the best home-made stuff on earth, in many of our opinions who have used his stuff. Lots of products on teh market now are exoensive and there's a lot of advertising hype out there, too. The body is reveling on the skin the problems that may be going on inside it. For sure, if yo've had a hysterectomy, your hormones are messed up.
People who get fat have some kind of metabolic disorder or they have some kind of problem they can't put their finger on that is an emotional thing. Most everybody has low thyroid these days and no usual medical test really picks it up. Most people have parasites these days, too, in the gut and perhaps in the liver, too if they have been poisoned enough by drugs, OTC and doctor's drugs, etc, and environmental stuff.
I went through Doc Sutter's cleansing program. Http://www.DocSutter.com.
That can get rid of the emotional as well as the physical problems and no more diseases, either. Sometimes the body makes fat just to have a place to put the poisons.
Bacteria can indeed be carried by the larger parasites that infest a person.
Lots of oosmetics on the market today have poisonous substances in them. Allergies point directly to a congested liver. You mentioned wheat allergy. Try doing a detox program and I think you will come out of it feeling much better. Your dream was on of reality for a lot of people now. Maybe The Almighty was trying to help you find the truth so you coudl get well.
I recently started my water fasting journey and lost close to ten kills in 1 week. I went to the shops and got me some chocolate and i was so dissapointed i ate close to 200 grams if the thing and my detox was all for nothing. I joined the forum to find fasting buddies till the need of the month i do not have ppl to talk to about my weights all my friends here are less than a size. I hope u read this and know the water fasting journey is rewarding but it needs alto of self control and dedication .
You have been lied to your entire lives about fat and how to rid yourselves of it. The body creates fat for a reason and that reason needs to be addressed before the fat will go away. Certain foods create acids in the body. Those acids will harm the body and the vital organs in the body so the body keeps those acids away by creating a storage place for them and that place is in fat. In other words the body creates fat to store acids to keep those acids from doing damage to that body. When those acids are creATED FASTER THAN THEY CAN STORED AND THE ACIDS GET TO THE ORGANS DISEASE OCCURS AND THOSE DISEASES ARE DIABETE,CANCER,HEART DISEASE,ARTHRITIS AND OTHERS.SO WHAT IS THE ANSWER? WELL ITS NOT SOME STUPID DIET, ITS NOT RICHARD SIMMONS, ITS NOT RUNNING 5 MILES, ITS NONE OF THE BS YOU HAVE BEEN TOLD. THE ANSWER IS SIMPLY ELIMINATE THE ACIDS AND ALKAlize the body. sTOP EATING ARTIfICIAL SWEETENERS, STOP DRINKING DIET COLAS AND AVOID ANYTHING THAT SAYS NO SUGAR, AND ALSO STAY AWAY FROM ANYTHING THAT SAYS SUGAR, BECAUSE THE ARTIFICIAL SWEETENERS WILL MAKE YOU EVEN FATTER THAN THE SUGAR. aVOID BREAD BECAUSE it TURNS INTO SUGAR, AVOID ALCOHOL BECAUSE IT TURNS INTO SUGAR, and Sugar is acid. Artificial sweeteners are even more acid than sugar. alakalize, alkalize, alkalize. contrary to popular belif animal fat is needed by the body and it does not harm you, Sugar do and acid does. Another the body does to keep you safe from the acids is create cholesterol, so when that doctor give you those useless statins those drugs are acidic and cause heart disease. The no acid foods will lower the cholesterol naturally by eliminating the acids. Betonite is one of the best acid reducers you can take.
So here are a few links which will make a difference in ur life style change and helps u not only to loose extra weight but also improve ur health dramatically!
Here is a link (one hour interview with a guy who was 400 pounds initially b4 he found the way to get back to his normal shape again... Just plz make sure u will watch it shortly coz it is free promotional now!)...
50 oz Acaí Mango Zinger Herbal Tea
6 oz Milk Thistle Tea
6oz Bengal Spice Tea
50 oz SmartWater w/splash of lemon
Today (so far):
50 oz Moroccan Pomegranate Rooibos Tea w/splash of lemon
6 oz Milk Thistle
50 oz Green Tea w/splash of lemon
Whenever I say I am consuming 50oz of tea I am only using 1-3 tea bags depending on the flavor. Green tea I only use two tea bags for 50 oz versus the Zinger teas I tend to use 2-3 bags.
Recently I don’t really like the ‘fruit’ teas. I might forgo them and stick to green tea and milk thistle. I love the mellow taste of milk thistle and it’s really good for the liver. That fear people usually have of getting a fatty liver due to excess fat loss during a fast is minimum with Milk Thistle.
My energy levels feel about the same whenever I eat. So sadly I don’t feel much of a difference but random pressure in my knees (which might be due to it raining soon).
I am measuring my ketone levels. Someone had once said drinking tea would lower the ketone levels. I have seen no such results! My ketone levels on day two were at 40mg and today was the same. I hope the levels stay at this level the whole time. I think anything higher is dangerous.
Yesterday I walked 2.29 miles. I felt a little out of it but I was not sure if it was the heat or the fast. I plan to walk about the same mileage today till I don’t feel I can be active. I am not hard-set on a schedule but I do think physical activity helps clear the mind and just overall makes me feel better versus laying in a bed all day. I plan the days I cannot walk to at least lay out on the deck and get some sun.
For most of us, our belly is our number one trouble spot. Forget six-pack, how do you get rid of the spare tire? While you may think starving yourself and hitting the gym 2 hours a day will get you that six-pack, you’re in for a surprise. It’s not quantity of food or gym time, it’s quality. Exercise the right way for less time and just cut out certain foods and you can earn a slim and sexy stomach in no time! ~ Health Freedoms
Burning calories is not easy—it takes a lot of energy and effort to remove huge amounts of fat, but with the help of green tea extracts you can easily speed up the burning process. Researchers have discovered that drinking a cup of green tea daily will boost your metabolism from 8 to 14 percent, that’s why they highly recommend it to those who are looking for a quick method to lose fat.
Tea is made from Camellia Sinesis and has three main varieties: green, black and oolong. The difference between these types is their concentration levels of polyphenol antioxidants. The more polyphenols there are in the ingredients, the better the fat-burning effects and benefits will be. Green tea is a rich source of this particular antioxidant, that’s why it is considered as one of the best weight loss alternatives available in the market today.
Green tea originates from Asia, mainly from China and other neighboring countries like Japan and South Korea. Asians in general have slim bodies, good skin complexions and higher life expectancy rates, and this is because drinking tea has become part of their culture for several centuries. In the past, this herbal beverage was normally consumed for its healing qualities, but ever since more benefits have been discovered, it has become an all-around remedy. So if you include it in your diet, you’ll not only be reducing fat but you’ll also be cleansing and protecting your body from various diseases.
Exercising will help you burn calories, but if you exercise and take green tea every day, you’ll have more chances of getting your body in shape. Your friends will be surprised the next time they see you because you’ll look much younger and sexier. They’ll want to know what supplements you took to achieve those results, and when you say you only drank tea, they’ll be desperate to try it out themselves!
So if you want to have a healthier, slimmer and more youthful body, go ahead and get some of this amazing tea today! For just a small amount of money, you’ll be able to enjoy all the benefits that this beverage brings. Compare that to all the expensive weight loss supplements that do not really deliver the results they strongly claim. With green tea, you’ll not only save a lot of money but also attain a great-looking body within a short period of time!
