I have decided to stop/put on hold my 36x36 hour Dry Fast Rotations, one set short of my goal of 7 sets.

My main reason is that I feel overwhelmed with too much fasting and need to step back and think.

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

It's always best to listen to your body so you can adjust your fasts accordingly.

Thank you, Cory.

Though I think my body was ok, but my mind is freaking out.
I have hard time distinguishing between my body and my mind right now.

36 hours Dry Fast - #7 out of 7

I did my last planned 36 hour fast (in a set of 7) on Monday, August 29.

My body reacted very well and even though I felt mild hunger throughout the day, it was quite manageable and by the end of 36 hours I was in deep ketosis (80mg/dL).

I am now finished with my 36 hour rotations and ready to start doing a series of eight 48 hour dry fasts (I did one 48 hour dry fast last spring already, so now it is 7 more).

I would like to review my goals for this 7 sets of 36 hour dry fasts as stated in the very first post of this thread:

My Objective:

1) To keep my gum infection in its dormant state which allows me to eat comfortably during my eating days in the anticipation of longer fasts which will eliminate the root of the problem.


This was working very successfully until I 'fell off the wagon' and breaks between my fasts became longer and longer. Of course I don't feel any guilt whatsoever about it since it was really hard for me to manage my fasting and my responsibilities associated with the Woodstock Fruit Festival in the end of August. I am glad that I was able not to sabotage my festival duties by excessive fasting.


2) To keep training my body and mind to go through 36 hour dry fast comfortably which will enable me to get more out of my longer fasts in the future.


This objective is achieved. This last 36 hour dry fast went very comfortably even after a long break since the previous fast.

3) To further integrate 36 hour fasting in my daily life and make it a part of my regular experience. To keep training my mind tuning into everyday sensory pleasure and happiness of being alive whether I am fasting or eating.

Well, I wasn't exactly able to make a 36 hour dry fasting rotation totally painless, and it is still far from being pleasurable. At this time I don't really want to integrate fasting into my daily life. I feel a lot less 'spiritually inclined' at this time. I think that people should fast only if they tried absolutely everything else (as far as healthy lifestyle goes) and it didn't work. I don't see any honor or 'achievement' in fasting. Fasting for me is a quest for health, and nothing else.

My gum problem is now progressing back to the state where it was before I started intermittent fasting and I am now going into my second 48 hour fast.

On the fruity front - I am now trying to let go all of all the 'should' and 'should not' rules in regards to eating raw vegan fruit-based diet and doing lots of experimenting based on my cravings and biofeedback from my body.
I am hesitant to say anything else, because I don't have any solid conclusions at this time.
The only conviction I have is that raw vegan fruit-based diet is the way to go if you are already there, but not necessarily for people who are not there yet (there are so many modifications that can have place).

Happy fasting to All ♥♥♥
