I have just completed a day of "dry fasting" which means NO foods or ANY liquids and I noticed something. My sole purpose of doing it was to see what was triggering my "hunger" and I believe its my gum chewing. When I read on the water support website about not chewing gum on your fast because it activates the digestive system, I thought they were full of it. I mean I thought the gum chewing kept me going on my runs and I couldn't make it WITHOUT the false sugar rush...LOL BUT this time I did everything I normally did: running 3 miles, powerwalking for an hour, 40 minutes of racquetball, and 15 mins on the treadmill. The difference was I didn't shove a piece of sugarless gum in my mouth and I had no hunger pangs, had no desire to eat or drink water OR juice and had bunch of energy (of course I did all the exercises I just did).
So in conclusion, I will lay off the gum during my water/juice fast. I guess the other folks knew what they were talking about. I have done a 3 day dry fast before for spiritual reasons, but was very weak on day 3, but got the answer I was seeking on the third day:-) Anyhow, this dry fast will lead me back into the water fast for the next three days (now that I know NOT to chew gum...LOL) Then back on juices on Monday. Oh, and I was peeing like a race horse, not sure why since I didn't drink anything....
