5 day fast
« on: September 08, 2010, 12:21:07 AM »
So I just completed a 5 day fast and maybe it's because I was forced to fast (I ran out of money 5 days before my pay check lol) but after like 2 days with no food i started getting angry really easy even at the littlest of thing like if the elevator (normally i don't use it but i was trying to conserve calories) took over 10 seconds to get to my floor i felt like i wanted to destroy entire planets lol. normally I'm an easy going laid back person and it normally takes a lot to get me angry. it was weird. Also normally when i watch animal documentaries and see and animal eating and animal i always wonder if it would taste good but during this fast everything looked delicious even a people. It's probably for the best if i don't do long fasts often (i like fasting during the day and eating at night though) I'm afraid ill end up turning into a cannibal lol. strange though the only thing i craved the entire time was MEAT. Anyone else have any experiences with fasting?

Sometimes being ruthless or withstanding brutality is part of the art of self protection. Easy training will not make it possible to protect you from attack and danger. When your life is in danger and you are totally involved in survival you can easily endure severe injuries and hardships.

Not for that long. 36 hours is enough for me and Yes, after a fast I want a big rare steak with a side of sauteed mushrooms.

I do 4 fifteen day fasts a year, helps to keep me healthy and strong. I also help local people in guiding the with fasting. Usually it's a fast using fresh made fruit and vegetable juices. A water fast is a little to drastic for most people because of the toxic crap in most of the food they eat. Loosing your temper on the elevator was probably just a detox sytem, it happens sometimes while fasting. A steak is not the best food to break a fast with, might make you real sick, try an apple next time.
