Hey there Catyrpel :) I'm with u starting up the 40 day fast today ... I did a 40 day fast about 2-3 years ago .. It was the most amazing feeling I had ever experienced. I probably lost 40-45 lbs during that time .. kept it off for a while , but thanks to a car accident and Depression I gained it back. I too work out quite a bit and hope to keep it up throughout the fast. So with summer approaching and the spiritual benefits I know that fasting gives me i'm willing to do whatever it takes to complete this fast. Granted my body is accepting it. So i'll be here for ya if u need that support ! happy safe fasting !
