How long do you water fast for? I'm thinking of doing it myself for as long as I can hold out starting tomorrow to cleanse my system of the caffeine from my 12 pack a day habit (coke is my soda of choice) and to jump-start some other issues that I'm having (I have a funny tingly achy feeling where my kidneys are at) So I'm just wondering how long you do this for. I know its a totally personal choice.
I plan to follow up my water fast with juice fasting for a bit too, just playing it based on how my body tolerates this.

are you breastfeeding cause if you are i highly recommend you do NOT fast.
honestly... with the few posts i've read of yours... i would eat raw live foods for awhile before fasting. i believe it would be a healthier choice for ya.
and definitely stop the 12 pack a day habit and replace it with a nice healthy green juice!

Nope not breastfeeding, my youngest is 2 and she weaned to formula at 6 months because of meds I needed to take (that didn't work, big shock that was) Not pregnant either, I have a Mirena IUD so no plans of a pregnancy in the next few years.
So would you think its a better idea to just go raw until say, Christmas break before I fast? If I wait until break to fast then I won't have the added stress of homeschooling for 2 weeks.

Sounds like an excellent plan to me!

I am on a water fast right now. But Ihave fasted for years on and off. I say start off for a few days and see how you feel. The third day is usually hard. You might try a water fast then go into a juice fast. Water fasting has amazing results but it can be intense. Good luck with your fast.
