Starting now 8 y
Not really anything to report yet but it helps just writing here to keep me going the first few days.
Ok, I have had it. My fasting starts right now. Itís 4:30 pm 5/9/12. When I break it, I will break it at the same time 4:30 pm of whatever day. Hope to go at least 3 weeks or more.
Throwing out anything edible in my house. I really got to just do this not matter how awful I feel and get it over with.
Day 1 starts in 30 minutes at midnight. Just start by counting tomorrow as day 1 instead of worrying about the 4:30 thing. The first 2 days are the hardest for me to get through but here goes. Canít sleep much at night, so Iíll be up probably cleaning.

Day 2 Fasting 8 y
The food cravings where really strong today, I almost ate, drank a diet coke. Itís going to be a imperfect water fast as I struggle to stop drinking it. I am going to keep going with my fast and battling the urge to drink any diet cokes. The more I can go with out drinking it I think it will help reduce the cravings for it.

Fasted Day 1 8 y
Juiced and ate a little raw fruits and some celery yesterday.
Made it through my first day of water fasting. I am using filtered water since itís hard to find distilled water in my neighborhood. Had some food cravings in the evening. But otherwise I felt fine. Wasnít used to drinking plain water at first but if I drink it with ice itís ok.

About 8 y
Have a serious diet coke addiction besides a food addiction. I got up to drinking about 4-5 2 liter bottles of diet coke a day!
Starting out with a lemon water fast to help me ease into pure water fasting. Because I am so used to only drinking diet cokes all the time, lemon water fasting should make it easier for me to start with, then after a few days I will do pure water fasting.
The hardest thing for me is going to be not drinking diet cokes more than going with out food.
