Day 1 - waster fast 5 y
Very smooth, different from my previous fast
I was hungry when I woke up, but the feeling went away after drinking 8 oz of water.
I had to cook 2 dinners tonight, was afraid that the smell of the food might trigger the hunger, to my surprise it was not bad, whenever the hunger feeling comes, the water quickly calm it down. My first day seems to be easier then previous WF experiences. The only different I did this time was I have been following 75% of Eat to Live diet by Dr. Fuhrman for few months, and the past 2 days were 100%. will see what happen tomorrow. The 3rd days seems to be hard for me... Anyway, I learned that the body ... read more
