Is Anyone On This Board An Experienced Faster?

5 posts in this topic

I have a couple of questions about fasting and I can't find any other forums on the internet with topics about fasting. So if you are experienced in fasting I hope you can answer my questions:

1) How often should a fast be performed? I've read some experienced fasters state that fasting becomes easier and more beneficial every time you do one, so how often should it be done? I was thinking of doing a 7 day fast every month, but is that too much?

2) Is water fasting the best type? Cause I've heard good things about juice fasting and dry fasting but I feel like I should choose one and stick to it.

I'm quite an experienced faster. I've been known to go 3 hours without food! ;) Haha, I couldn't fast if my life depended on it but good luck to you if you find it provides you with any benefits.

Hi, why do you want to fast for seven days straight?

Personally, I practice daily intermittent fasting (15+ hours without food) and I find it highly beneficial. I begin my fast in the evening and end it in the afternoon. At first it was very difficult to go without food in the morning, but now I find it very easy and I don't get hungry until about 1300.

Look through the Diet and Holistic Forum, it contains a lot of information on fasting.
