Water Fast Day 1

written by Steven on February 26, 2013

This is day one of this journey. I hope you stick around and take this ride with me.

I started a water fast yesterday. This is where I don’t eat any food and drink anything except water.

I’ve sort of been training for this for sometime, I’ve become accustomed to eating very little and I’ve skipped eating for a whole day a few times recently, so day one went fairly smoothly. I was only hungry a few times and when I was I drank some water, not much, just until my thirst was quenched. It was a busy day yesterday which was a nice distraction from food.

In the evening time I found that I had more energy than usual and I was able to perform better interacting with the kids and helping with homework and whatever they were into last night.

By 8:30PM I was pretty tired and fell asleep for a few minutes, which I often do closer to 6:00PM. I felt chilled during the afternoon and while trying to fall asleep. I was in bed at nine and read for an hour. By the time I climbed into bed I had a bit of a headache and I labored to fall asleep at 10:00PM. Finally I took some aspirin and put on warm socks. Shortly after than I felt cozy and ready for sleep. Falling asleep on an empty stomach is always hard for me, but I slept well and woke up this morning feeling good.

Tomorrow I’ll start explaining why I’m doing this.

I’m guessing you are following a planned water fast that keeps you from dying, but salt, potassium, and other electrolytes are necessary. You won’t even get salt with a multi-vitamin.

It takes about a week to run out of salt and you’ll start having serious life-threatening issues. Unfortunately I know this from experience as I went on a super limited diet few years ago, that among other things, lacked salt.

Good advice, Ben. I’ve done an eight day fast before, so I know what to expect for that long. Beyond that I’m looking forward to, lol.
