You get loads of energy, you feel light and not bloated all the time. Try 36 hours, (24 plus a sleep) you know its working cos youre hands and feet get cold (body conserving energy). Make sure your first and ladt neal are healthy and clean

Just one or two more days people... a full feedback of my month of fasting is comming...

Ok so here it is...
As far as Fasting goes, for me, I had some good things to say and some bad...
1st of all, I ejoyed eating 2 huge meals.
2ndly, The pumps and the performance in the gym recovered fast.
3rd, I was able to sleep for long time and deep sleeps.
4th, I got back on the track while eating BS foods everyday without adding fat.
5th, To be honest I feel that I have lost some fat and vascularity also got improved a bit.
1st, living without water all dayliht hours especially in this heat SUCKS BIG TIME!
2nd, Some days I got hungry and wished to eat a lil bit.
3rd, I also got dehydrated on like my 14th fast or so which was bad! and also on my 23rd or 25th or 27th fast. and also after my fasts were over.
4th, Getting bloated with those big meals was a f-u-c-k time problem for me.
5th, making myself eat everything I could get was a lil unsatisfactory.
All in all it was a good experience... these were religious fasts, I decided to use em for my bodybuilding advantage too, that's why I was not able to stay hydrated all day long....
I really enjoyed em and they gave me a good advanatge... I will definately fast again sometime and will start a new topic then... Hope all the guys will follow and support me on that too.
---Thanks and Cheers!

Can I recommend, next time round, you do a none-religious fast, as I strongly dont agrree with these 'no water fasts', afterall we are essentially 90% water as humans. Im betting you got as low as 45% water, which cant be good for anything.
You need to flush in to flush out, its the same as washing your car, collecting up all the dirty water and washing it with that, you just dont get clean!
This is why you also went into dehydration, youre body was not getting enough, theres no cals in water so its not a fast breaker.
Ive just completed another 36 hour fast after a week away last week eating in restaurants and drinking lots of ales (admitedly, real ales with lots of nutrients, but still!) and i feel really good for it! The euphoria you get at about 20-22 hours is worth the wait in itself!
This will also help your bloating issues, as you will grab onto any liquid you can after a water fast or bought of dehydration
Also, water can swell the stomach, so if you feel hungry, downing a hot drink or pint of water can get you extra milage. If using fasting for slimming, when it does come to the feeding window, just eat slow and small and work up as your stomach is tiny by this point, again this will make it more comfortable.
With all the above, you should have removed all the negatives, meaning fasting can be a lifestyle change opposed to a one off
Good work sticking at it though!

Good ideas. I was thinking about keeping the little eating life, but right after eid I went to Ihop with my friends and had a nice big steak with a serving of corn and mashed potatoes. No more diet for me lolOriginally Posted by RogerBob

Yeah I should have removed the negatives because if we remove the religious factor! fasting has NO -VES in my sight!! but still I wanted to write down all the +ve and -ve things I felt for THIS fasting I did...
Your replies were v v informative and v v much appreciated!
Thanks for following on!

u know I can relate to that! al the 3 days of eid! I also had some cheat foods every day :P
it was awesome!! but I still didn't got v dirty! I wanna eat more junk now :P
no tight dieting for me too for some days :P
but to be honest I keep my diet not too clean and not to dirty... I SHOULD diet strict!
