-and… i had a friend same syndrome (possibly not as bad as me, but pretty bad, he has PTSD, former marine. so i think finasteride and such are v dangerous for people with mood disorders). –he and me, both smoked or took nicotine during our first long water fast. -results don’t lie, we are like 2/100. maybe 200? out of 70000 who are cured. -yes, best water fast ever = nothing, just water. –even swim in the sea for electrolytes also. –you lose fat .5lb avg person has like 34lb, you can go 68d. -that’s pretty drastic. i got work to do, and my family and others would think I’m insane if I did that. BUT I think I’d be 90% cured in 3mo rather than 4-5mo, if I did that. but whatever, take what you can get.
During fasting, the stomach’s production of hydrochloric acid (HCl) decreases because there is no food for it to break down. When you start eating again, your stomach needs to adjust to food again. Eating too much or consuming a lot of high-fat or very acidic foods and beverages could result in an overproduction of HCl and lead to painful acid reflux.
I recommend going on a light walk or doing gentle, restorative yoga if you’re jonesing for some movement.

Thanks for the cool article and the hilarious responses to some of the comments. I read your article and the comments from users in its entirety and I am deciding on a pure only water cleanse the first time I try this. The next time I will do only herbal non-caffeinated teas and see what comes about with each. I was recommended a water detox by a friend who does it twice a year and benefits immensely from it. I am trying to reboot my immune system, try to get rid of eczema and also figure out what my body is intolerant to. I’m hoping I don’t drop too much weight considering I am weighing in at a rough 116 pounds soaking wet. But I am doing this after Thanksgiving day (today) and on a weekend so I’ll be lounging around meditating and staring at the walls. Wish me luck. 🙂
Hey Syed. I remember how it feels from the early days of not getting traffic. Maybe learning about digital marketing might help with your health and fitness blog? Anyway, whole different topic for a whole different post. All the best breaking the 1-day barrier!
I studied this a bit and am prepared to begin the snake diet’s juice by Cole Robison when I ready to rehydrate.
A water fast should include just that – water. Consuming coffee or tea activates the liver to detoxify caffeine molecules, so while your digestive system is getting a break, your liver is still working hard. That said, some experts say if it’s between not fasting or fasting with coffee/tea, use them.
