How can someone go for 10 days without drinking.
I thought one would be dead in 4-5 days without fluid intake.
I was totally dry last night and had to have some water. Without fluid intake, I would have gone ill. :sick:
I love fasting, and recommend it. But dry fasting... :dry:

Every day of a dry fast is equal to 3 days of a water fast. There is a very long history of doing this in Russia and it is the way our forefathers in the Bible fasted. If you are interest in learning more about it, please follow my link and you will get lots of information about it.

Just wondering what sort of damage will happen to the Liver, water helps clean the system out and get rid of toxins. Even though it states it also does that by dry fasting, it would stop me doing active things.
For example, I can fast for weeks and upto a point can still work out, run, go to gym, etc. Even after over a week of fasting, can still run, but have trained until exhaustion - but that is dehydration draining me. Drink, and I'm fine again.
I suppose Russia is cooler, and keeping dorment can put the body in semi-hibernation, under the right circumstances.

Esmée, another instance in the Bible where "dry" fasting is explicitly mentioned. You might want to add it to your excellent article on the subject. It doesn't say for how long, but Ninevites were commanded by their king to "dry" fast, in order to invoke God's mercy and avoid national demise. But again it doesn't say for how long they fasted this way:
www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Jonah%203:7-10&version=NIV

Also when Jonah was inside the belly of the fish, most probably dry fasted:
www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Jonah%201:17&version=NIV

I'll let you know if I come over other instances. It was an interesting study for me, didn't realize "dry" fasting was actually so common those days...

I don't follow a particular religion. Nothing wrong with doing so, what was written then, is not documented from a professional point of view.

By the way, in the case of Ninevites the "dry" fasting edict was enforced not only on humans but also animals...

By the way, I have a male cat who gets into a lot of fights with other male cats, wild animals and such. Sometimes he is victorious sometimes he gets it real bad. So bad that he can barely drags himself home. Each time I watch him, he "dry" fasts for a 1 or 2 day, and after that he is completely back to normal - it's unbelievable. The food that he cherishes the most, he doesn't even want to look at, until he heals himself.

Also forgot to mention Jonah being inside the fish for 3 days and 3 nights, he most probably "dry" fasted for that long.

Thank you, Greg. I added these references to my page. That is very interesting about your cat. Animals are so much more in tune with what is best for them.
