    Hi Katie
    A 40 day water fast with exercise may be a tough as climbing mount everest. Starvation is when your body uses the first healthy cell for fuel. Green tea is find. With a juicer. Read the juicing section of the web site.

    WOW! Good for you -and good luck!

    I don’t think I’ll be ready for the big step (40day) until the end of year break when I finsh classes… and have some spare time at the parents farm to focus on the Lord alone. I’m doing a three day fast starting tomorrow – Hope you get to the end of this one. If you don’t, never beat urself up. I’ve lost track of how many times I’ve tried to do this!

    Best of luck and let us know how you get along
