I'm fairly new to this myself but recently completed a 6 day fast ..

1. I added lemon to mine but trying to stay away from it. I heard Andre (the fast doctor) said that taste will cause you to get hungry. So, I only plan on doing that for emergencies.
2. I heard toothpaste is fine if you don't swallow it. I switched to baking soda as that is preferred by some.
3. Most people don't exercise. I read that you should keep it light if you do and watch out for dizziness.
4. Your supposed to break the fast with diluted juice and gradulally strengthen it over a couple of days.
5. Sorry, can't answer the spiritual question.

There are a few of us fasting in the 'Badly needs a mentor' post/thread, you are welcome to buddy with us if you like. There are some fasters much more experienced/knowledgeable than me there.

Hey Nedarain, How is the fast going? I hope you are able to overcome and get through. If you don't manage to get through 7 days, don't worry, just pick another day and start over. You will be amazed at how it does get easier. The first time you fast, you are likely to experience more detox than later fasts, simply because it is the first time your body is given a break from eating and can get down to business housecleaning.

It also helps a lot if you can get some support. If you can't find support in the people around you, make sure you come to this website often to get inspired and encouraged. That is what we are here for...as well as to be encouraged ourselves.

Spend some time reading some of the articles and even the old posts on the forum. The best way for me to break the fast is to use the most easily digested food on the planet: Fruit. Joel Fuhrman recommends eating half an orange every two hours the first day, Eating a whole orange every 4-6 hours the second day and the progress to larger meals the third day. I recommend from my own experience that you eat something that is high in water and fiber content as your first few days of eating. This will help to get the bowels moving again. Good luck with your fast and I hope it is going well. If not, brush yourself, start over and keep trying. It is worth it.

Dear Nedarain, don't forget to congratulate yourself for getting through 3 days fasting. When I first started fasting, before I knew anything about this forum or had read more than one book on the subject, I had a difficult time just getting through 3 days. It does get easier each time, I think partly because you won't be as toxic and partly because you know what to expect and because your confident level increases. Why not try again in a couple days and plan to go maybe 4-5 days. You might surprise yourself. Try to make sure that you don't let more than 6-10 days pass before trying again. You can do it!

To possibly begin again tomorrow I'd love to help support each other.

Hey Nedarain, That diet will probably make it easier for you to fast, as your body will do some detoxing on that diet. Let me know how it goes. I never did well on raw, except the 80/10/10 which is mostly fruit. But I couldn't sustain it more than a month. Check back when you're ready to fast. You can also post about your raw food diet in that section of the forum.
