Hi

I am new to this site and your thread was my first read.

I have been on three fasts in my life: once I did 10 days on only water. And for the past six months I have done two 8 days fasts with 3 days without water. Both were in a group with Akahi's pranic process.

I am living mostly of fruit now and I have long periods at a time where I only need 4 hours sleep a day.

To me it makes sense. When I eat heavy stuff like cooked foods of vegetables and even a bit of meat, I get sleepy. I have read many times that digesting food takes a lot of energy and it seems to be the case.

So much more time available to enjoy life there is when eating less. Very Happy

Thanks for your reply Wink I actually need more food intake because I train quite a lot, and if not I lose muscle tone. But I have mostly a vegetable / fruit diet. I have meat only twice a month or so.

I am currently during a 48hr fast which is going by very smoothly. I have no hunger and I have been able to train. I also find that, the more I fast, the less food I need to fill my stomach Smile I am full with a salad!

True, when fasting I just need 4hr of sleep.
Cheers

... the stronger the detoxification feels, the less I want to do.


That was one of the missing pieces in my puzzle.
Because I once went direct from three-meals-a-day to water-fasting, felt great and stayed that way for about a month, I expected to be able to do the same thing now... 45 years later!!!
Small wonder I've now crashed several times and have considered giving up the idea.

I would need to find a way to blend fasting into my lifestyle.


That's a tricky one.
When I was 19 it never entered my head that fasting might create a social problem; now that I'm 64, get-togethers with friends are always in a pub, coffee shop or restaurant.

My family had a wonderful meal today and I shared a glass of water with them. It was hard because they had my favourite meal.


Hats off to wilson85 for not caving! Again, I remember my co-workers of long ago eating every kind of fragrant lunch around me, and I didn't have the least desire to eat. Now I have to shut myself away when my husband starts cooking.

I wonder whether anyone else is presently attempting the Stepdown Method.

I suggest that you read about properly performed fasting in this book:
