Hey, how long did you fast for after?
Broke my fast.
I puke yellowish green bile which a lot of fasters experience.
I broke my fast with watermelon.
Anyways, ima fast again maybe at november if not, maybe at january.
Anyways, im going to fast throughout my life.
Did you notice any effects on your skin?
I did 6 almost going to 7 days of water fast. It was just about 3-4 hours before the 7th day.
Effects.. I'd say my skin look brighter and has a glow. During my water fast, my skin peeled. My marks got a tad lighter. Yep.
I dont know about the scars. Probably not a significant difference since it is just a 7 day water fast. If it was more than 14 days of water fast though, then that'd be a very different story.
Anyway, my next fast im aiming for 20 days.
So far, this is my longest fast.
I think the only way to convince people is to actually take a before and after photo (if you make it, that is) and show us the results. That's a way to end the debate.
I was nearly hospitalized when I tried to fast for only a few days when I had an eating disorder, but my body was already weak. Anyway, you should compare before and after photos.
Well, fasting isnt really recommended to those with eating disorders.
But yeah your right.
I dont know about other fasters here but, im not really interested in convincing people. Actually, i have no motivation or whatsoever to convince someone to fast.
I just dont like when people bash water fasting with all the jibberish they came with based on their fears,etc. if only they'd do a research.
When i was young, i thought i'd faint if i skipped break fast. And my mom said, my body will eat my organs if i dont eat for a dat. Lol. And then i water fasted 7 days. Like it's fine if they'd disagree after they present some legit information.
Before and after pictures. Im very sensitive when it comes to that. You see, i have this scar, not from acne. If i would post a picture of me then people who knew me can i dentify my with it.
In addition, i have a phobia with cameras and photos ever since acne and scars happened.
So really, all my purpose in this thread is because i wanna see other people's experiences and ask questions. If other people would like to try it, by all means go for it. I just hope they do know what they are putting themselves into before they jump in.
Do it with someone supervising you if you must.
