Hey! You did a great job! Five days is a major success, gives your body much rest. I can only imagine how those apples must have tasted. I totally agree with working up to longer fasts. I've been fasting for over a year or so...mostly 3-5 day fasts, with one 10 day, and now the 18 day.
I am so relieved I broke my fast when I did. I can't wait to taste apples again. Fresh OJ is freaking incredible coming off of a fast, isn't it?!
I think anytime we give our digestive systems a rest, it is a powerful and transformational practice.
