So I’ve got some extra “me” to lose, actually around 48 more kilos worth, and I decided that to get rid of the weight needs one thing: negitive calories + more exercise = slimmer K-Mom. I’ve started eating less (I’m only about 50-75% raw, which is as about as raw as I can be where I live) of the cooked, high-calorie foods and I’ve cut out almost all the sugar from my teas (and we’re talking TEAS! I’ve never seen a bigger bunch of tea drinkers than my in-laws) and I’m really, really trying to cut out sweets but I have a weakness for chocolate and coffee.. Which might help explain my perdiciment.
My biggest thing is I have started fasting (the Islamic method of fasting) two days a week, BUT, I feel I need to do more and I want to try a 1-day water fast every week.. However I have no clue what a water-fast involves? Is it really just a water free-for-all and I just drink only water all day to my heart’s content or is there a true method to this and I should be drinking a certain amount at certain times? At first I thought “Water-fast.. how hard can this be? It’s just having water for a day and there ya go” but the more curious (and sometimes anal) side of me started waving red flags and telling me that I need to ask some advice before I go drinking like a fish and causing some damage..
Ssssooooo here I am and if anyone does water-fasts and/or has info about them and can share this with me before I jump into it I’d very greatly appreciate it
Oh and there is just one more question… Where I live we don’t have running water to the house, our water is delivered every day by a tanker and kept in a metal tank on the roof… that being said sometimes the water has kind of a funky taste to it, sometimes metalic, sometimes fishy, sometimes a bit like I’m licking a frog.. If I’m doing a water-fast on one of those “funky water” days can I add some fresh lemon juice or orange juice to the water? Will that defeat the purpose and benefits of the fast?? Or is it cool? I can live with it but I find if the water tastes funny I’m less likely to want to drink it very much.
Thanks for the info in advance!! All posts are welcomed!
