Anywho, here I am doing a(nother) fast...My last one was back in April, so 2011, and it was your bog-standard 24 hour lemon-honey-water fast.
I'm aiming for 30 hours-maybe 36, this time round. I'm not ready for 48 hours just yet. I'm at hour 25.5 now. This time I'm doing water only. I started with lime ( I have no lemons) honey and water. Then, moved on to water with a pinch of Himalayan salt in it.
Why add salt to water? Pure salt helps to pull toxins out of you, while helping your body to stabilize itself.
Here's a great link I found about the pros of using natural salt vs. the evil cons of using processed "table salt" http://innerwealth.me/2012/06/
Right now, I'm not too hungry, but yesterday and last night were killer. So, what did I do? I watched "Come Dine With Me", naturally! I stayed up as long as I could, so I'd be really tired and sleep without feeling hungry. Kind of worked.
Here's another interesting link all about Himalayan salt; how to use it, what's it's benefits are, and such like.
Right now, I'm closing in on 26 hours. I'll see how much longer I can go. I feel kind of lethargic, and it's a task to not focus on food.
Well, we'll see how I go, and more importantly, how I feel when I finish.
A belated Shana Tova to all, and a pre-emptive Yom Kippur!
