Day 1 of a 7 day water fast.

I've developed some unhealthy eating patterns lately, so I need a reset. I've done a 3 day water fast before. It went surprisingly well. I liked the mental clarity that came with it and feeling reconnected with my body again. I haven't experienced real hunger in a long time - I mostly eat out of habit or being bored. I'll be working out for the first three days, taking a break after that. Time to burn some reserves. 💪💪


Hey, I'm doing intermittent fasting, basically not eating for about 18hours and have been doing wonders for me, not sure I would be capable of such an extended fasting thoufg. Just out of curiosity, do you add any salt or other electrolytes to the water to keep you going during the whole week?

@dnegreira I used to do intermittent fasting 18:6 too and it worked really well for me. But then the unhealthy eating patterns snuck in and all of a sudden I was eating huge breakfasts, feeling bloated and overeating throughout the day. That's why I'm attempting this fast, to reset my habits. I'd like to do intermittent fasting again.

I'm reading up on adding electrolytes, but I don't think it'll be necessary yet for the first few days.

@Gina @dnegreira
I have similar issues. My problem is eating in the evening, in front of the TV. I've been doing intermittent fasting (skipping breakfast) for over a year.

Good luck!
