i am wondering if it would be dangerous to do a water fast over the next 7 days while im on a cruise. this cruise is for complete relaxation, and there will be a lot of laying by the beach..not much running around. this fast would not be to lose weight or anything like that, and would be for nothing else besides helping my body heal. i figure water fasting and a ton of exposure to the sun would help my health out immensely right now. i slipped into a smoothie fast about a month ago, then ive been juice fasting for a few days now and today ive had nothing but water and just feel myself slipping now into a water fast. this is what i need to heal i guess, as i havent planned any of this...i think if i take it easy and make sure to stay hydrated, i should be just fine. right?
im such a fasting newbie. i wasnt even expecting this..came outta no where. my bodys finally speaking to me i guess

Ahhh a cruise in the sunshine! Lucky you :D
My understanding is that it is very safe for most people to fast on water only, and like you mentioned, near complete rest, fresh air and sunshine are important factors for water only fasts. And staying hydrated.
The part where people can get into trouble is breaking the fast, the re-feeding as it's called. It's important to gradually and slowly reintroduce first juices, then fruits and veg, then full meals.. You can find tons of info in this forum - there are some great threads.
Hope you have a mahvelous time :p

Hi EYB... I'm about ready to do some green smoothies and juice fasting myself. I have done water fasting. It can be very healing. How fasts affect you varies... from person to person... listen to your body... and how you're feeling. Go with that, you can always switch to juices or fruit if that 'feels' best to you.
As for fasting information, there is a thread... 'Fasting Support' that has a lot of information about fasting... including water fasting (on the first page). I'll bump the thread up so you can read about it... that may be wise before you go on the cruise. Have a wonderful time on your trip! :D

i got to 9 days on water only working + running + lifting , and im like 30 years older so this will be a day at the beach for you . ;)
ide just carry a water bottle with some type sweet juice for a sugar kick in case you get any momentary feelings of light headedness .
