I’ve done it, I’m coming towards the end of the last day and I will start eating again tomorrow, although the diet will be sparse for a few days while I get the body used to food again.
As for the rest of the day, it has been a hard day again. My energy levels have been at zero. Every movement seems to take such a lot of effort. I think I am well and truly detoxed. I think if I were to do longer than two weeks I would need to be on a tropical island spending the day dozing on a hammock looking out over the sea. Life is too busy for me to do more than two weeks.
Water is getting increasing hard to drink as I am starting to taste the chemicals in it. When you start eating again after a fast the taste of food is incredible. Fruit and vegetables are so sweet, and you realise why sweet corn is called sweet corn! Although the water I am drinking is filtered it is limited to what it can filter out. We used to have a reverse osmosis system which was fantastic; it would even take the fluoride out the water. Unfortunately we are unable to plumb that into to our current house so we have had to go back to our old ceramic filter. Anyway I can now taste the chemicals and I don’t really want to drink it. I have even started having a few problems with my clothes! I am now reacting to the soap powder that we use. As you fill your body with rubbish you desensitise to the bad things, your body learns to cope with it, which is not necessarily a good thing. The same thing goes for anything that goes on your skin. How much poison can you take for things to be ok? Fluoride is quite a nasty poison, but it is added to our water, we do not have a choice in that. The build-up over the years of these poison does have an effect on our health.
After my first fast, a few weeks after I had started to eat again I had my first beer, it was quite disgusting, put I persevered, I thought it was worth it. Over time I started drifting back into my old ways, and this Christmas I realised I was back to square one, hence the fast.
Well this is the last fasting blog, the eating blog starts tomorrow and I am so looking forward to it.
