Greetings,

I am an 18 year old college student embarking on a 14 day water fast! I have previously completed a 5 day water fast, so I decided that it was the right time to progress to the next level. I am hoping to (eventually) be able to take on a 30 day water fast, so I am gradually preparing my mind/body for such an endeavor. Perhaps I will venture and attempt a 30 day water fast during the month of December, if not, then during January. For now, I will focus on my 14 day water fast!

Today, Thursday October 18th, is Day 1 and all is going well. My fast will end on November 1st, and I plan on updating this thread at least once a day to journal my way through this wonderful experience.

Please feel free to post questions/comments; I would love to share this experience with others.

Take Care.

This is an admirable endeavour and you are setting a great example.
Please bear in mind what I mentioned a few times on these forums: Detoxification consists of 2 steps:
(1) Mobilization and
(2) Elimination.
Now (1) is achieved by fasting, as soon as you start breaking down fats, toxins are released into the tissue fluid and from there via the lymph system to the blood. I like to be quite active during the fast to help this process and I find it easier to jog or work out, than when eating. Your tender age might imply that there are not that many toxins(yet) but there might still be enough to make you feel rather ill, therefore,
(2) is essential: We use a 5-step cycle of activities to make sure that the toxins, after moving into the blood, is eliminated from the body. The kidneys cannot handle fat-souluble toxins so we use mainly the skin, by performing in quick succession, a cycle consisting of
Exercise -> Massage -> Heat (Sweat) -> Cold -> Rest.
and repeat this at least 2-3 times per day. It makes you feel and function a lot better. You can do these all at home: Using any form of activity (running up stairs for example), follow this with a rub down (if you don't have a masseur handy, use a loufa or rough towel or massage machine), then a very hot shower or bath, followed by a cold shower or bath, then just lie down or go to sleep..
Please keep us posted!
