16 Jun Day Three of Three Day Fast by Debbie Peterson
I made it through three days (will head to bed after I finish writing). Overall I feel good. I had no ill effects: no headaches, odor, aches or pains. I suppose that is a testament to my clean living. I woke up today not feeling very energetic, but as the morning progressed, I had a lot of energy and felt great. My hunger finally dissipated, though not completely, still, which surprises me and makes me wonder. The last time I did this I remember not being hungry after the second day (though I don’t know how accurate my memory is). I have lost about five pounds, and I do feel like I lost some extra fat. I’m glad I stuck it out as I was thinking I may end this fast early because I had tennis matches planned today, originally, which probably wouldn’t have been the best idea, but they got rained out and I benefited in that I could finish my three whole days.
Tomorrow morning I will break my fast with some raspberries. I don’t know if I’ll eat anything else in the morning, but I plan to have some steamed greens of some sort for lunch. Now that I’m all clean, I don’t want to mess things up. I will stay away from grains for a while, and try to be 100 gluten free (at least with food) for a while. I’ll also avoid dairy and, of course, sugar. I’m experimenting in finding out if I’m sensitive to particular foods by introducing them one at a time.
I highly recommend doing a fast to anyone, really, but especially for anyone who has a chronic condition or disease. A one day fast once a month is very doable for most people and has multiple benefits. Consider it. And if you want more details or guidance, please contact me at email@example.com
