View Full Version : Breaking week-long water fast... what foods are best to eat?
04-22-2009, 02:32 PM
I just broke a seven and a half day water-only fast. I broke it by eating dried prunes, as prunes seem to be a popular fast-breaking choice. What other fruits and vegetables are best to eat directly after a water fast of this length?
I'm worried about eating something that will ruin the progress I made during the fast and/or make me sick.

BRAVO on finishing the week!
I always was told that watered down juices were a great segue back to eating. Soaking the prunes makes them a bit easier on the system as it gets back to digesting.

congrats on a 7 day water !!!
ive read / heard the opinions on you have to eat proper things upon breaking a fast but dont believe in them , as long as im eating raw i immeadiately devour everything after a fast . but heres a link to my favorite fasting expert whom im sure has an opinion on the matter =
* i wouldnt let the era of this mans writings cause you to not take him seriously as he over saw thousands of fasts and was just as bright as any dic today .

I had 5 prunes (not soaked, sadly), then an hour or so later I had a banana and 8 oz. of Sambazon Acai Juice. This seems to have caused two cases of loose stools so far. Not painful, but very liquid (almost no solid bits). Is this normal after a water fast of that length based on what I ate?

my body could never handle soaked prunes after water fasting. i need a much slower, more gentle break... juices only for a few days and then the soaked prunes...
and yes, you body still had lots of feces in it after 7 days... so there's no concern over having two bowel movements.
