    It is all about fear mindhealth. You are eating due to tension and the reason is fear. You have to break down your thought process to see what is really happening. http://obesity.fasting.ws and http://compulsive.ws will get you started.

    Well so far I drank 15 ounces of orange juice and I am going to drink at least 80 oz of water today. That will be my day. I think the orange juice helped curb my non-existent hunger but craving for flavor. I want to do a full water fast tomorrow. Ill update with my weight and difficulty tomorrow. So far so good.

    I wrote this long ago but now I feel slight dizziness and because I have to study nothing is registering in my head. Temptation for food… I don’t think it is a good sign for the first day. I will continue though.
    …….another update..
    I had juiced tomatoes carrots, celery, and beets. too delicious to be good haha
    I also have a few joint pains. This never happened to me before. I know these days you are never to young for any ailment. Is this normal ?
    One question though….. can you take vitamins on a fast? or do you let your body work with what it has?

    Now feeling sad. Somehow I unconsciously made oatmeal with blueberries and ate it. I’m disappointed with myself.

    I think I’m going to postpone my fast and make it a 20 day water fast in December. I will be more calm, relaxed and have time to do absolutely nothing.
