Thanks Jenny :)
I was at work and snatched a few moments to reply to this thread.
Sorry if I came across as preachy or something harsh(ish) :)
Certainly not my intent.
Fasting is not an eating disorder.
I am not one to ever suggest anyone under goes a Water Fast
long term for weight loss.
I do know some that have done it for spiritual purposes and have had remarkable experiences with it. However both of them prepared for this, and were followed by their Doctors to watch for health issues.
I have done a long fast and achieved great results. It was based around The Master Cleanse
drink. Remarkable weight loss results, spiritual and cleansing results.
I now use fasting short periods both to drop a few sneaky pounds
that creep back on, and too cleanse toxins from my body.
Fasting takes so many forms, and is a huge challenge, physically, mentally and emotionally at times.
I think the best advise on any subject is to educate yourself as much as possible and never take any one source of opinion as the fact.
As for bones :)
Oh yes! There are certain bones I do want to be able to tell are bellow my flesh.
Wrists, ankles, collarbone. These among my favorites.
I say with a warm smile and sincerity that I am far from Anorexia.
