  • Not sure if this will help or have the same effects on others but this is what I learned from my 4 days of water fasting!

    -ALWAYS HAVE WATER NEXT TO YOUR BED!!
    I found that the mornings are always the hardest, with throbbing headaches and light headedness. It should’ve been obvious for me but it was clearly dehydration. Only on my third day I caught onto this and now I know for next time!

    -DAILY ROUTINE!
    My initial plan was to have mind numbing fixations throughout the day to fight my hunger. I planned movies, tv shows, and video games to occupy my time but I realized that I was actually more productive while I was doing work. Time seemed to fly by when fixating on actual work and being productive!

    -LIGHT EXERCISE
    At first I was afraid that I might faint because I was so low energy…but once I actually started to put in some light workout I was able to do it. Obviously don’t do anything heavy and stay put in a safe place. I resorted to an hour bike ride around the city, pushups, situps, and air squats.

    -MEDITATION
    I’ve had so many inner dialogues during my starvation state that my mind was so crowded. It was also evident that anytime I had negative thought, my automatic reaction was to find something to eat! Trying to suppress such thoughts was probably the most challenging meditation I ever had.

    Hope this helps! I’m definitely reattempting end of this year and possibly go for 5 days.
