I intend to do a 30 day water fast. I did a 20 days water fast 2 months ago, but I was resting. I want to do a 30 days water fast this time. The problem is that I work as a high school teacher and this time I'll be working while fasting. Is it safe how can I succeed.

Welcome with your first post dear Riham.

I have addressed the issue of "active fasting" many times on these forums, you are welcome to browse them. In a nutshell, it is generally much safer and healthier to be quite active while fasting, as such activities protect your muscles from breakdown during the fast. But then you should also integrate your activities into the elimination cycle (see five step.. on top of this page)..

I do also advise never to decide on the duration of your fast beforehand, so that you can sense the natural biofeedback to guide you.

Happy and healthy fasting!

Thank you so much André
I will read about the five steps. I also totally agree with you on not deciding on the duration of the fast. I know that the body will send signals to break the fast. Last time I ended it abruptly and didn't listen to my body and ended up not enjoying all the benefits and feeling that I have unfinished business.
