    This is my first time doing a fast of any kind, and I'm doing it as a personal "goal", I guess to prove to myself that I can, and to clean out toxins and see how I feel... (and oh yea, to reduce) I recently lost my job, and during the 6 months of employment there, and now the stress of unemployment, I've been eating non-stop and have gained about 25 pounds since November. This fast was mentioned by a co-worker whom I've admired for her eating disciplines, and I became interested in how my body would function at "it's maximum" and was curious as to what kinds of toxins I would notice being expelled during the fast. I'm not a stranger to de-toxifying methods, as my mother was into nutrition/ colonics/ etc. my entire life, and I've wanted to start employing the intellectual knowledge that I have of nutrition in my life, so here I am.

    I understood from the book (which didn't go into specifics) that all medications should cease during the fast. Was I wrong? I was taking Wellbutrin for depression, Effexor for anxiety, and Levothroid for a low functioning thyroid, and I completely stopped taking all 3 Sunday night before starting the fast on Monday. I just found this forum on-line and started crying reading about some people's experiences of hunger, etc., that sound similar to mine-- so I notice that I'm a tad emotional...

    I'm constantly fantasizing about food, ANY food, even steamed broccoli sounds fantastic to me right now, and the tenth or 14th day seems like decades away right now. Of course I'm surrounded by the usual friends that think that I'm nuts for fasting, so I really, REALLY need advice or encouragement or someone to let me know if I'm doing anything wrong, or everythings right, or whatever.... I haven't broken the fast AT ALL, but I'm wondering if I should, or if everything I'm feeling is just normal, and to hang in there and feel better for it in the end. I do have one friend that is an avid "faster" that said it sounds like I really am detoxing, and I needed this-- he compared it to pouring hydrogen peroxide on a cut-- he said my system was just "bubbling up", which shows that I needed a cleaning out. He said that even if I don't become a wonderfully healthy vegetarian, that the fast is still great for me to clean out years and years of toxins.. is he right?

    sorry for the rambling-- other things I've experienced that I didn't read anyone mention: an increased allergic reaction to metal jewelry, itchy ITCHY skin, itchy FEET! muscular discomfort and "spasms" that make my sleep irregular!!! build up not only on my tongue but on the backs of my teeth-- bad build up. And gaseous cramping and discomfort...

    Anyone's advice or observations are welcome. If you're in this forum then I know that you know at least as much if not way more about this subject than I do!!!
