Hey, my lovely readers! I’d love to tell you all about my recent 9 1/2 day water fast experience. This was my longest fast ever; I feel so proud and accomplished! The last fast that I did was a juice and water fast, which was for 2 weeks. I didn’t strictly drink just juice, I also drank water too. But technically, this was my longest fast because I ‘strictly’ only drank JUST water for 9 1/2 days!
this is me breaking my 9 1/2 days water fast on a medjool date. I was very happy! 🙂 My face definitely got smaller.
this is me on my water fast. I think it was my 4th, 6th, or 8th day?? I look vibrant, slim & happy! My face was clear and glowing!
Initially, my dad and I were going to do a 3-4 day water fast. But instead, (as you can see I went beyond 4 days!) we decided to go with the flow and not say an exact date on when we would finish. It’s always best for us. Yes, my dad water fasted with me too! We’ve always fasted together, and it’s always fun! But he didn’t break his fast yet. He’s still going strong! I am happy for him. For me
fasting for 9 1/2 days – that’s something to feel proud of. I remember when I first fasted back in October and that only lasted for 3 days. It was my very first time water fasting. But I will say, on THIS water fast, I had way more strength than on the first one. As you guys already know, last month I did juice and water fast for 11 days.
Why Did I Do This Fast?
I did this fast for weight loss, give my system a break, gain mental clarity, detoxing, and detox and cleanse my liver and kidneys.
Anyhoo, without further ado, here’s my water fast experience.
40 FDA-approved ingredients (not surprising to me). MSG is commonly found in soy, seasonings, chicken, burgers, chinese food, commercialized SAD foods, candies, pastas, canned goods, cereal, the list goes on. I’d never recommend buying and using MSG in ANY of my recipes!! If by any chance the recipes in my past posts contain MSG, please DO NOT ADD IT!
- causes blindness (instead of improving ones eyes, MSG damages the retinal cells that help improve eyesight!)
- causes headaches
- damages the brain and brain cells
- leaves to nervous disorders
- fatigue and disorientation
- chest pains
- short of breathe
- rapid heartbeat
- upset stomach
- the list goes on and on!
BUT – there is a healthier alternative to liquid aminos! *drum roll please*…. COCONUT AMINOS from the wonderful company who brought you coconut nectar!! Coconut aminos is way healthier than liquid aminos. As you already learned, liquid aminos contains MSG, coconut aminos doesn’t. Coconut aminos is made from coconuts rather than soy. It naturally contains 17 amino acids, 100% organic, enzymatically raw, gluten-free, non-GMO, and vegan! So it’s a 100% soy-free and MSG free! The benefits of coconut aminos are awesome, as you can see in the picture below.
The benefits of fasting is just amazing! Many raw vegans, vegans and people have fasts such as Jesus, Gandhi, Moses, Mohammad, Buddha, and much more! Many people have fastest for longer periods of time, which you have to prepare for. Before fasting, make sure to have a common goal (just like anything in life) on why you’re fasting and doing what you’re doing. I believe everyone can fast; not everybody has the mind frame to. I suggest you look into fasting and really consider it. Many people have cured diabetes, cancer, tumors, toxic, and anything else that they may have in their bodies. I can go on and on about how amazing and the benefits of fasting. Here are some videos on the benefits from Dan McDonald, The Liferegenerator.
