So I woke up this morning and thought to myself, “you know what would be a great idea? Let’s make this day 6 of my juice fast a water fast instead. I can take all the load of my digestive system, take lots of pancreatic enzymes and see what happens. Yeah thats a great idea”.
Well its not a bad idea but man I feel shite. I am light headed, I have no energy, I am breathing heavily and for a while my heart was beating at a mile minute. I suspect that I have pushed this fast as far as I can/should. Although there could be an element of detox still I have definitely also got to the point where my body is running on stores that should not be accessed. I just weighed myself and came in at 61. Thats a loss of 2.5 kg in the two days since I went from my all juice fast to my just green juice fast, then because that wasnt enough to a water fast 😛
So why did I think this was a good idea. The first time I finished a fast I suspect I finished too early to see what the full affects where. This time I did not want to make the same mistake. I wanted to know that I had done everything that could be done to see what a fast did to my body before I went on to the next stage of my diet. And although I still agree with my logic and instinct this morning, once again, I do feel shite. I read somewhere that the first few days of a fast are meant to be hard. Then you start feeling great, then when you get hungry again its time to break it. Well I am hungry. It is time to end.
But on with the show. I now know what happens when I water fast at the end of a 5 day juice fast. I will wait until tomorrow to decide what the affect of the large amount of pancreatic enzymes has been. Regarding the actual amount I will get back to you in the event that I notice a difference but it was around 4 times the amount I was having. From my research I have not come across a problem of PE overdose. Most people just suspect they stop doing anything. So… until tomorrow then 🙂
