who is sticking with the fast?
I am at day 13 - and day 2 of water fast - and I am feeling quite sick
I am freezing, and I have a terrible sore throat, and also my tongue is so painful, what does this mean? I have few spots on my face, and incredibly dry lips. I keep puttin shea butter on them, but nothing works. I drank some lemon water. This morning I have eliminated again two tiny bits at my toilet then went to the gym to swet out some more toxins.
Now I am just laying on the sofa with my douvet on me, but still chilly.
I hope to be better for the weekend, I will go to England for a short holiday, and I want to enjoy my banana for breakfast, so I hope that the sore throat will pass soon!!!!
Anyway, I should be glad about this detox, the only thing is that it is so unpleasant!!
Helen, enjoy your potluck, I am so jealous, all that raw food to try!!!
Hi Fragola ~
I'm still O.J. fasting BUT I am thinking of doing water for a few days to speed things up a bit. Aside from headaches, I haven't really had too much detoxing and I know ther is way more junk in my system. I may try this seekend! That way I'll have time to rest! We'll see...........!

after 11 days of juice fast I am having now a real detox, quite strong, so I really think that water fast is really a different experience!
Good luck for the weekend!
Thanks Fragola, I'm sure I'll enjoy my Raw Potluck. Never been to one before.
I have to hand it to you . . . you sure are a tough cookie to stick with it 100% with the detox you are having. I couldn't handle the detox and take care of a grandson, but even if I didn't have him, I don't think I would handle the detox like you are. I figure I'll detox with raw foods . . . it will just take longer, but I'll get there :) I hope once you finish your juice and water fast that you'll feel like a million dollars (a whole lot quicker then me) :)
I'm hoping to try another juice fast in a month or two, after I've been high or all raw for a period of time. This should cause my detox to be almost nil. I'll see.

I was that way, swore I had the flu...it took me 7 days to get that way and about 3 to feel better. I am eating now, glad to be eating, but I thought I was gonna die !!!! I lasted 7 days on the juice fast lost almost 8.2 lbs!!! You will feel better soon.
That sounds right. Its in that second 7 day period of time that the detox begins. You did speed it up with the water, that was a good thing. I had symptoms like that (also so did Jinjee talifero , you can check out her experience on www.thegardendiet.com It will pass. When it does you will be on another level of health and wellness! Congrats!
How come all you guys are losing or lost so much weight?!?
I was dissapointed to see I didn't lose as much as all of you...
Today is day 6 for me. I am ready to end this fast tomorrow evening. I am so looking forward to eating again. I have felt well all through this and have not noticed any detox symptoms. I will probably do it again in a month or two.
Jay my friend,
You have lost nearly 40 pounds in the last 4 months......what, pray tell are you jealous of .
A once per week water fast with the raw diet and exercise will get you to your ideal weight. :)
What an interesting experience! This morning I woke up feeling great, my throat was fine, I went to toilet again, and my skin is getting better.
I thought that the detox was longer, but mine lasted only one day!! I went out for a little jogging this morning, but I felt so weak, so I had to walk most of the time, my hearth was running very fast. I will take it easy today, is my last day, and I am planning two days eating bananas, persimmon and apples!! Yumm!!
Another interesting thing: I lost 2 pounds yesterday, I couldn't believe at the scale this morning!! I have surely eliminated a lot of wastes during my strong detox.
Jay, the only thing I can say is that maybe you needed to fast longer to see major results, but it is difficult to say. If you eat raw, anyway, you will lose your weight for sure, slowly maybe, but you will lose it!! And Todd is right, the little you have lost is probably fat and toxins, not water, as you have lost so much recently.
Yeah, I suppose you guys are right...
It took me years to gain it all, so I can't expect to lose it all in half a year, I'm just not patient enough I guess...
Fragola, I admire you, you've done so great, I can imagine the amount of bananas you are going to eat tomorrow, hahaha! Enjoy them! Oh and have fun in England, I bet it's cold and rainy, just like here in Belgium, but London is so much fun!!
Edda, congrats on your fast, I'm so glad you've done 6 days already! Whoohooooo!
RawJoJo, how are you doing? Still OJ I read, congrats to you too!!
All the others, I admire you too!!! :)
For people that want to know, I ended my fast today!!!
I did 11 days of juice fast and 3 of water fast, and during the last 3 days I saw major improvements, great detox, bigger weight loss.
I have lost about:
0.4 inches chest
2.8 inches waist
1.6 inches hips
0.8 inches calfs
1.2 inches thighs
0.8 inches arms
I am VERY happy about my results, I couldn't believe it!! I am now going to eat my perfectly ripe persimmon, and leaving for a weekend in England. Life is soooo great!!!!
I hope to be able to manage the post-fast days and not overeat!
I hope you will have a great weekend,
let me be the first to CONGRATULATE you!! I'm sure everyone agrees here with me, you've done brilliant!!
And those results, whoa !! Spledid!!
Enjoy your persimmon and those good 'ol bananas and have fun in the UK of course!!
