just drink some water - slowly. In my opinion it does not have to be any particular amount - just as much as you want. It's probably not going to be that much.

May compassion to yourself and all beings guide you in your eating, fasting, and lifestyle choices.

Dear Lisa,

Your 72 hours dry fast falls into category of the long fast hence needs to be treated accordingly. Here's what you do. You drink your first glass very slowly, no less then 10 minutes to 15 minutes and mix each sip with your own saliva. The best water to use for breaking the fast is melted water. What you do is you put spring water in the freezer, let it freeze completely then take it out and let it melt. Melted water improved metabolism, helps further detoxication and rejuvenates the body. You can combine your drinking with taking a cool shower. Then you brush your teeth. After the shower you can take a warm bath but for no more then 8 minutes. You can drink more water while taking your bath. After that your transition to water fast is officially over...:)

May the Energy you free from digesting serves your Body and Spirit well!

Dear Milena,
I just finished my short 2-day dry fast (more than 50 hours) today. I have to break it short because tomorrow I need to attend a dinner invitation. Do you think I can already eat a rather-big dinner tomorrow night (less than 24 hours after I break the dry fast)?

You should not really have a problem provided you eat appropriately between now and then. Based on Dr. Filonov's system I would drink some kefir (or other probiotic dairy drink), then make myself some veggie soup follow by fish broth (just boil fish, you can add some spicies but nothing else). Have those three and you should be ok. Remember 2 days is a good length but not long to be too critical. However, watch how much you eat at the dinner you are going to and do not add any salt at the table.

Thanks for the tips Milena. Usually I break my fast with papayas and bananas. I don't have a juicer, so I just slowly chew them thoroughly. It really tastes heaven :) (fasting really makes us appreciate food in a positive way -- they're such blessings!)

Btw, I'm just surprised that I could go through the 2-day dry fast easily, without any hunger and immense thirst. I hope it gets easier and easier next time.

It does get easier and easier. I am on my 7th day and feel great!

By the way keep in mind pancreas does not like raw fruit after the fast. Too much stess. So the list you can do is boil some fruits such as dried apricots, prunes and raisins then drink that soup to break the fast. Dr. Filonov does not recomment any raw fruits until day 3 post long fast. Since you only did 2 days, you should be ok within 24 hours.

I will surely bear that in mind. Maybe because during fasting there is no sugar-stabilizing activity by the pancreas. Once anything loaded with sugar enters the system, the organ has to be abruptly called in from its vacation --- just a layman's way to understanding why. :)

I had a question and would be happy for some advise.

I started fasting on Friday and today is Monday. On Friday and Saturday I had water all day and then from Saturday at 9:30pm until a short while ago at 2:30pm, I did a dry fast, my first ever...41hrs!
I broke my fast because it was almost 90 degrees today and even though I am not outdoors, my thirst became unbearable.

So my question is, I read somewhere, that if i resume my dry fast within 6 - 10 hours of breaking it, it is considered a continuation of the previous fast. Is this true?

Thanks

I know the Fast Doctor says that if you do another fast within 6-10 DAYS of a previous (water or dry) fast, it is a continuation. I wonder if you meant that? Congrats on your fast. That is quite an accomplishment. I think that if you feel like switching back to dry during your water fast, that's great. It's good that you listened to the biofeedback telling you to drink water. Sometimes I'll do dry and then just when I feel like I want to break the fast, I'll drink a liter of water and feel much better. Actually, you have inspired me to do some dry fasting. I do intermittent fasting every week and I was just trying to decide whether to do water of dry fasting. How long do you plan to fast?

Thank you for responding to my post, I had feared this thread had gone cold. I'm glad am I able to provide someone with inspiration as I need much of that myself.

As regards how long I intend to fast, well, I haven't had solids since Thursday night as I explained before. And because I was feeling much disappointment at my inability to complete the five day dry fast I really wanted to, I did some more reading and I found under the dry fasting forum "Cascade of Lavrova", so I'm going to do that counting today as my first 'dry' day and not bothering about the days that have passed.On the 'wet' days, I'll still avoid solids and do mostly soups(without solids), broths, coconut water and water.

I realized that at this rate, for me to get to the five day dry fast and therefore take myself to the first healing crisis, it will take exactly one month.

Ultimately, I'd like to take my body to the first and second healing crises.

Grateful for any support I can get. Thank you!

You did inspire me. I started my dry fast 1 hour ago. What do you mean about first and second healing crisis? Is that somewhere on this site?

I've gotten through 70 hours dry fasting (broke it 2 hours early due to nearly passing out) Hmm...that gives me a bit more motivation to complete day three.

They say 3 days dry fasting is as effective as a week of water fasting and that 9 days dry equals a month. I don't know if that's true, but I do know as far as weight loss, dry fasting is much quicker. But then I think, hmm, am I just dehydrated and that's why my weight is down?

Great! Congrats on joining the fasters!!

I read the link below, along with all of the information under the dry fasting link in this form before I even started.

www.fastingdry.blogspot.com/p/what-is-dry-fasting.html?m=1


What got me snooping around was that I noticed that on Saturday during the day, I wasn't really drinking much water,it was as if I wasn't thirsty at all and water seemed repulsive which is so unlike me, so I wondered if I was doing myself harm by not drinking water, then I came across the concept of dry fasting.

While I do understand each day of dry fasting is equal to 3 days on water, I do share your concern that we are only losing water weight. I'd be happy to get some input on that.

Hi Milena :)

Do you know why this is? I cannot think of why raw food would put too much stress on the pancreas, I would have thought it would be the other way round as the pancreas would have to release less enzymes if the food was raw.

I'm not disagreeing, I just don't understand why.

FiMel,
Thanks for posting that link. I liked the idea of the cascade fasting. Very interesting. Lots of info. Esmee used to post a lot on this forum, last year or so. The article was well written.

Blackout, I agree with you. I believe raw fruit is very gentle on the digestive system. But I'm a "Fit for Life" girl when it comes to fruit. Harvey and Marilyn Diamond taught that fruit is the easiest food to digest and that's why you should eat fruit only on an empty stomach because your body doesn't need much energy to digest it. The Fast Doctor also recommends eating fruit after a fast, as does Joel Fuhrman who recommends oranges for refeeding. I am open to other points of view, but I mainly go by my own biofeedback. My body loves fruit for refeeding.
