    So hey guys! Im on day 6 of a water fast … except on day 3 I had a few bites of watermelon and a cup of diluted juice. I really regretted it but I thought at the time that I had to quit the fast. I know now that even the tiniest bit of fuel taken stops ketosis and I had to start over again from scratch at that point to get back into ketosis. Now on day 6 I am back over the hump and back into ketosis. I quit smoking on day 2 of the fast as well. I am feeling awesome in fact I dont think Ive ever felt this ALIVE! Hope you guys are helped by my journey and get some good info. By the way I am planning on a minimum of 14 days but if I still can go for it I will go for 21. We will see how I feel on day 14. In 6 days I have lost over 10 pounds! If you guys have any questions for me (for all you fellow new fasters) about what I have experienced or specifics feel free to ask! Thanks for sharing my journey with me!

    Hi angelap, You probably already know that the detox effects of fasting are causing your pain and discomfort. A good, raw diet and long juice fast would help before attempting a water fast. If you need any answers to your questions please feel free to ask! Or, you can search the site too! Welcome and good fasting! Ron

      hi Ron
      thanks for the support ~ actually the aches and pains I listed were previous symptoms > thats partially what gave me the desire to fast. They have greatly diminished since I started the fast. I am now on day 8 I think. Going great and convinced my husband to do a water fast too. He started today. In 8 days I have gone from 176 lbs. to 161 lbs. My goal is 145. Anyhow thanks Ron and everyone for reading!

    That’s great! You are one of the fortunate few who can escape the detox pains during a fast! Good luck with your goals. Ron
