While never experienced it myself, from what I understood, real hunger is felt in the throat, not the stomach. Grumblings/noises are nothing but movements, contractions, that have nothing to do with hunger. We were taught to associate hunger with such sensations. Perhaps you didn't fully let go of that false belief?

I think eating/drinking could also be somewhat tricky, as you may be thirsty but eat something packed with water. I really have no idea how you guys drink plain water during a fast. I really don't. Not only my body doesn't wants it, I don't want it, but it actually dries me up, as plain water does dehydrate the body on a cellular level, hence why so many people on water fasts report being dry despite drinking large amounts of water. Don't you feel that plain water is dehydrating? I don't feel thirst nor hunger anymore, but I can tell when my body needs water, and it directs me to a certain fruit in order to extract it from.

Well, fruits are expansive anywhere, I believe. Depends on the season, availability, country of origin etc', but in general it's not a cheap business. However, I believe it is such mostly for those already eating a western diet. I had any disputes over this manner before with my family, them accusing me for eating a very expansive diet (organic, all kinds of special foods), but what they didn't take into consideration is that meanwhile I don't buy all the junk that they do, I didn't buy meat, eggs, dairy, soft drinks, snacks, candies, breads, didn't make takeaways, etc'. Similarly with fruits. It may be expansive, but you don't buy anything else, you know? As for the fruits being "dead" where you are, I don't know what to say about that. Shocked

By the way, this whole discussion and my general transition thread has become alot around fruits, and so I'd like to mention that I'm not suggesting it is obligatory or something or is the right way to make the transition, but it sure seems like it is the most balanced, middle way, gradually transitioning by assisting the body with the detox & elimination process. It's so personal, everyone with their own mechanisms, their own bodies, their own physical traumas, their past conditioning, their held beliefs, mind games, emotional dependencies, environment, etc' etc'. Anyone should just do whatever it is works for them by the most natural means possible, in their own pace.

I never knew that about hunger.

After my initial fast I didn't drink very much water at all. I thought I would drink more water than usual this time around, and while I've drunk 3 litres + I feel incredibly thirsty! More thirsty than usual while going through this fast. I will experiment with this to find out if the days I drink less vs the days I drink more to see what changes (if anything).

I was going to do a 40 day water fast but I feel ambivalent to it. In the sense that I can't decide if that's actually what I need to do next ~ I want to detox & get the cravings/hunger gone. I want to gain self mastery through this process and I'm not sure on my next steps. I guess I have to meditate on it.

I get what you are saying. Like I said before, this journey is very much an individual journey. You are all over the fruits! I was all over the juice! I could probably be all over juice again, lol

Turns out I was just getting sick with a cold. This happened after my last dry fast too. And it makes sense ~ I worked hard 9 days straight, during with the last two working days were dry days and water ceremony right before I hop back into a regular work schedule. Gotta be hard on the body.

I want to stay home but contractors are scheduled to work today and there's gonna be a lot of hammering and sawing and all the noises that grate the edges of my nerves so I'm going to work with some santasapina bon bons and a euchinecua(sp?) throat spray and some herbal tea. I am so incredibly cold though, and this is following the same pattern the cold took after the last dry fast, which is sore throat, lowered energy, chills and being cold. I was wearing 2 sweaters and fleece lined tights in 25 degree weather last time!

Anywho. Just wanted to update that - not sick because of water intake. Wink

Currently going through my 6th dry fasting, three of which in the past month. The latest one was for 5 days, the current on the 3rd and ongoing.

There's a significant change between the fasts. I give the credit to daily SWF for roughly a week & consuming only fruits, mainly juices, for the past month. What changed from the latest fast is quite dramatic:

First, the bad taste in my mouth is gone as is the white coating on the tongue which indicates on toxins. While my muscles are still heavy I don't feel much weakness in general and was actually very active yesterday, compared to the previous fasts when I could barely function and felt somewhat dead inside, lacking the will to be anywhere or do anything. It is somewhat difficult to talk, though. Also, my face isn't as pale & the blackness under my eyes isn't showing anymore, and my urine is not as clear as it was, sometimes even completely yellow. Moreover, similarly to the 10 day dryfasting I conducted last year and unlike recent fasts, I couldn't sleep last night. I sleep less with each day passing by. Another significant change is the amount of weight I lose nightly: consistently for the past 4 months since began with weight tracking, I lose 0.5kg a night regardless of fasting or not. Yesterday & today I lost about half of it - "only" 200-300g. Mainly due to lots of urination (losing about 200g each time) I lose around 1kg/day consistently while dry fasting. I'm still dissatisfied with the weight loss as I'm already way too skinny, but that gives me hope I'm on the verge of switching the direction to gaining. The only obstacle on all of my fasts is the weight, it drives me quite mental to be honest. Too much pressure around looking normal to keep on going with this transition.

Further development is in the mind games with cravings. They're gone. If I do randomly crave anything, it's fruits, and it's fleeting. All other emotional cravings I had in the past 4 dry fasts, are gone. I lost the bodily need to put anything inside me and realize that when I do want to consume something, with conscious visualisations I realize there's really nothing I want to ingest: I go first by tastes (Do I want sweet? Salty? Sour?) and try to sense how I'll feel with that taste in my mouth, and then to the actual food, trying to imagine myself drinking it and then by eating it, reaching the conclusion I don't really want anything. I feel much more conscious about the real energy of the ingredients; juices I drank for awhile between the dry fasting smell much less appealing, heavy & contaminated now. Just smelling it makes me imagine/feel how it would affect my mind badly with a brain fog.

Several questions still bother me, one of which is why the body can't find a proper solution to eliminating the accumulated intestines instead of going to an unnatural aid such as enemas. I dislike this procedure, it feels too invasive to me. And besides, doing it while dry fasting doesn't seem like a wise idea. If I weren't dry fasting I would do a SWF, something I actually like doing & thought about doing today only after gradually intaking back fluids to not shock the body. I just couldn't make myself drink though, and the thought of consuming that salt and added lemon in such large quantity didn't cut it out for me. Makes you wonder if the body has other plans for whatever is in there, perhaps discarding it later on after finishing other more urgent processes. In my 10 days dry fasting I didn't evacuate in 9 days and didn't feel any ill effects, although afterwards when resuming eating I suffered from constipation for quite awhile. I was regularly constipated before the fast, though.

Another baffling question is why do I keep urinating so much while all the testimonials written tend to report on very low quantity of dark yellowish urine. Mine is in large quantities and usually closer to transparent than yellow. It seems like my body is breaking lots of matter (glycogen/fats/muscles) which in turn gets rid of the water stored within that matter. Moreover, the dry mouth issue I don't experience whatsoever, on none of my dry fasts. Everyone talk about being so dry, I even read about people walking around with ice in their mouths. My mouth is not only wet but over producing saliva which forces me to either swallow it or spit it out, while the former is my natural inclination.

All in all, the only problem I'm facing now is the weight. The moment I see even 50 grams of gain, I'll be thrilled. Despite things going great, I'll consider alternating for the time-being between dry fasting and juicing & SWF, to get maximum cleansing results without risking losing too much weight.
