    good fasting to you. I know it’s a rough but incredibly rewarding journey. You’re a far more focused faster than I am. I definitely respect your endurance.

    oh, that ethereal point where the fast starts. Is it the moment you swallow the last bite of your food? The moment you poo out the last bite of food? I usually call it the morning when I wake up after eating “normally” the day before.

    “I love fasting, do it eight hours a night!”

    If you pick your nose and eat it, does that count? (ew, I was thinking this while watching a small child on the city bus) What if I am riding my bike and a bug flies in my mouth and i accidentally swallow it, do I have to start over? What if i am dry fasting and water gets in my mouth when im walking in the rain? Just some of the questions that have entered my mind while fasting. But, seriously, it is one of the best, cleansing, healing, getting in touch with how you REALLY REALLY feel things you can do for yourself Oh, and my fasting coach says it’s cool to use essential oils, as long as you don’t eat them :)

    EDIT: moth, will it be a water fast or something more elaborate?

    One more thought: Fasting helped me through quitting smoking cigarettes and fasting got me to go raw vegan, FINALLY.

    Just a little water fast. ;-) I’m playing it day by day. To see how long I can go.

    I take it she died. Fasting is bad news.  Nothing good can come from starving yourself.

     Like all things, it's good in moderation. Intermittent fasting may help kick start the immune system.
