Re: Tea?

If you don't like herbals, why not try water? Diluted black tea will have some caffeine in it, presumably? I don't think the consequences would be particularly detrimental, although it would not strictly be a water only fast. Presumably you would not be adding milk. I decided against herbals or any non-calorific flavourings to water, because I wanted to test my ability to be alone without "props" as it were - to see what it is like to be without these sensory distractions, if you understand me. But there is another consideration. Anything with flavouring may stimulate saliva (part of digestive process, with digestive enzymes) and may also help to stimulate appetite. You possibly risk making the process more difficult for yourself. Another consideration is that even if the tea is organic, there are likely to be various contaminants such as pesticides and although levels are probably not high, this is the kind of thing that Water Fasts are supposed to help you avoid. Finally, psychologically, it was best for me to face the whole fear of deprivation head on, rather than have little substitutes and props which really just get in the way and help to undermine resolve and create doubt before you even start. Depends why you are doing this, in a way, and what your own thought processes and convictions are about the diet. Hope this is of interest. Jane
