View Full Version : Completely confused and frustrated (poss TMI)
Okay. I am totally frustrated with this fast. it is the close of day TEN and I STILL have hunger. I have double and triple strained my juice. I have had diarreha for SEVEN days so far. I have been able to keep my spirits up til I got on the scale today. When I got on the scale on Sun I hadlost7 lbs in the first 4 days (water weight) and tonight I checked my weight and found that since last sunday, almost a WEEK AGO I have lost exactly ZERO--not an ounce!!! I have only been drinking 1-1.5 quarts of juice a day, the rest is water. WHAT THE HECK IS GOING ON??? The only thing I can think of to maybe stop the diarreha is to switch to water-but I totally suck at water fasting. I am so frustrated. I HAVE to see these 40 days thru, but I'm losin' steam. :mad: I could really use some advice....and a hug :(

It could be your body healing something serious inside of you that you're not aware of yet. As for the hunger, that's the problem with juice. Juice won't completley shut off digestion, but water only will. Sorry if this isn't very positive lol.

Why? Winter is not the time to fast; spring is. Maybe your body is telling you this and you need to eat. Why fight what's natural? Fasting is natural when one is ill.
Give yourself a break and stop forcing the unnatural. Show yourself some love.

If you weren't going for 40 days I would suggest water, but that is too long unsupervised IMO (unless it is purely spiritual). Maybe you can do a couple days of water to kick it off. Usually my hunger dissipates after day 3 on a liquid diet.
I don't know what to suggest, maybe the MC (although not raw) or try juicing more greens.
I did have really bad diarrhea on my last fast, but I believe it was from salt. I was using veggie broth and salting it too much and it was causing really bad (and unexpected) runs!

... maybe stop running into walls. If it's not "working".. do something differently.
thank you. I was called to a 40 day spiritual fast. I ate a couple of bananas and I made 2 shakes out of Rice Dream (not raw-:o ) and carob powder and ice. I read that rice and carob can help. Now I feel bloated, but at least I'm not going 3-4 times an hour. :eek:

I am on day 7 of the Master Cleanse right now. I lost like 5lbs in the first four days, but since then, nothing. I haven't had diarrhea, except for the salt water flushes which is to be expected. I haven't been able to figure out the weight thing either. My idea is that my metabolism has just slowed down to compensate for the lack of food. Just thought I'd share that at least the weight part is happening to me as well.
Best of luck on your journey,
