I have never done a water/electrolyte fast.

However, I have done a cleanse occasionally over the years. Your H2O/electrolyte fast sounds more like a cleanse to me.



If you donít mind can you please elaborate more about it.



Thanks.


Itís pretty simple, I just drink water and add electrolyte solution to keep those in check. I guess you could call it a cleanse? Iím doing intermittent fasting sprinkled with extended fasts to treat various chronic health problems. Since one of those problems is insulin resistance, a juice cleans wouldnít help me much.

Yes, I understand that. My question is what is the science behind it and the benefits?

There are many and much, but I really donít want to spend a lot of time repeating it all. You can google Dr. Jason Fung if you are interested in learning more. There are plenty of other doctors but he is my current favorite.

Re: Juice Fasting anyone?

I'm just saying, if I don't get red meat at least 3 times a week I am fairly certain I would need to be institutionalized.

Re: Juice Fasting anyone?

It's day 4 and I'm still not hungry. I just feel...normal. I'm also considering extending the length of my fast depending how I feel on day 7. I'm thus far not starting to get that "glow" back to my face I had when I was all raw, instead (sorry if TMI) I'm breaking out I know it's to be expected with this kind of deal but I was really hoping it wouldn't happen to me My skin cleared up completely when I quit drinking dairy and first went raw vegan and lasted even after I incorporated some plain cooked foods back into my diet. Skin issues seem to be the only "detox-related" issues I'm having thus far (naturally, the most visible and hardest to hide one!). I think I'll do a *shudders* face mask and take a ginger bath later to help draw out the toxins further. On a positive note, my face and fingers seen to have lost the puffiness, so YAY!

Re: Juice Fasting anyone?

Tami2- think I've seen all of those except the last one too.

One I didn't see on your list, if you haven't watched it yet, you really need to! It's on Netflix and called "What the Health". VERY eye opening about the big "non-profits" that are being funded by the meat and dairy industry to push meat, egg and dairy heavy diets on sick people who may benefit more from reducing or eliminating meat, eggs and dairy from their diet. Very sickening.

Yes, GREAT movie & it is on the list.

I couldn't agree more. It is absolutely disgusting. If the American ppl really understood how the Gov is subsidizing our chronic illnesses they would be outraged.

Yea, My face broke out every time I did a cleanse, not so much with the juice fasts tho. Good Luck

Hi Aquila,

Sorry to hear this.
Will you share w/ us the fasts that you have done? B/c every fast & cleanse I've ever done have Always yielded positive results. I'm interested to hear about it. If of course you want to share . . .

So, I looked him up last night and WOW!

I've never heard anything about this process. I am a registered nurse and we were taught that starvation only leads to your body storing fat when you begin to eat again. So, this is news to me. I will continue to research this and educate myself. I haven't gotten to part where you reintroduce food and how the body responds.

Interesting stuff indeed.

Thank You!
