I completed a 14 day water fast 2 years ago. I am 5ft 10inches and went from 11 stone to 8 stone. At the end of my previous fast I was hospitalised for low potassium in my body. I was very tired during the fast and had to spend the last 7 days of it in bed as I had no energy. I experienced dizziness, diarrhea, problems sleeping and extreme dry mouth.

Although my previous experience was bad, the weight loss was worth it and although there were many bad effects, I was never hungry and after the fast I continued to maintain my weight at 9 stone. It is only now after 2 years that I have gone up to 10 stone and wish to go back down to 9, therefore I am going to start my new water fast now.

I will be commenting daily on how I am getting on with my fast.

Well i'm feeling fine so far, no adverse affects have started yet so thats good :) . Hunger pangs are starting to kick in and i'm craving food, but I know they will go in the next few days so i'm trying to push through them. I'm struggling though, I can't remember feeling this hungry the last time I did this. I'm feeling guilty for feeling like this so soon into the fast, has anybody else experienced this?

Well I had a restless night and didn't get much sleep. My stomach is really cramping today, hopefully it should ease off soon. Feeling quite nauseous today and light headed. I've only been drinking about 3 cups of water a day, maybe I need to drink abit more, it might help with the sickness :unsure:

Hey xkimx,
Hope things are going well for you. I didn't make it through my day yesterday. I'm quite disappointed in myself. I'm happy you were able to push through it. How I feel on day one of a fast depends on how I ate the day before. I've totally overeaten and then didn't even feel hungry until day two. I've also eaten normally and felt totally starving day one. I'm learning, with more fasting experience, that every fast is different and probably depends on many different factors, such as what you ate leading up to the fast, how active you are, how toxic your body is. Sometimes I find it harder to fast at home since there is always good food around compared to if I work and can't get to the type of food I like to eat. I try to keep myself busy to pass the time quicker. Sometimes water makes me feel sick. As a matter of fact, I have even been known to drink a huge quantity of water straight down to make myself feel a bit nauseous to prevent myself from eating.
