Hi, I just found this forum so I joined. I have been planning a long term fast to start tomorrow for some time. I have fasted before for 7 days a few years ago and felt virtuous! Last year I fasted for 5 days. I want to extend my fast to 10 days or more. I would love support. I hate days 1-3 also, but I think it'll be easier if we keep in touch. For me, water only is the way to go. I did a juice fast last time and I'm an all-or-nothing kind of person. The flavor int he juice is too tempting for food. I am starting tomorrow morning. That way I have 8 hours already under my belt. Have you fasted before? Why are you?
