30 Bananas a Day!

I broke my fast after one week. 3days DRY, and 4days WATER.....
We hear about the amazing benefits from fasting, and we hear about the disadvantages from Sincere, but "Sincerely Wrong" people. I believe with Millions of people Starving in this world we can handle a one week fast or until completion.

This wasnt easy for me, as some people claim. I felt i had a persistent desire to eat (same like we have before a mealtime) on day 5, 6, and 7 half the time. I loved how DEEP i slept on this fast. It took an hour or two to fall asleep, but it was DEEP.

I lost 12 lbs total and feel lean and light and at my BEST. My staff infection has healed up. My ankle was sprained and has healed. Some challenging decisions have been made. Some built up anxiety has been dealt with nicely, and many more advantages....my skin is soo soft and clear....yadayadayada...

I had to keep watching inspirational videos from other fasters on Youtube, like YogaYak and random fasters. To perservere i read Shelton's book "Fasting can save your life" and Arnold Ehret's Mucusless diet and his Rational fasting book, and I also had to watch videos from Michael arnstein and see his lean physique and his determination on ultras and to watch Durianriders lovely ranting and to watch documentaries on marathons and Ironmans about pushing through the hard times.

Granted, this is a small fast compared to the many that have done longer. I love noticing that first watermelon digest and hit my stomach. I felt it move through me. I love eating! I really am appreciating refeeding....my second meal was tree ripened Organic Rolinea, Can you Dig it? (hehhe, Dan's phrase).

Energy is low, but building each hour. my desire to find durian soon is building hourly. noticing the contrast from fasting to feeding is interesting..i felt my body was preparing to go without food and survive for long period, but I had not enough purpose to keep going this time.

The Taste change with eating now is so obvious...i got it with rolinea, after eating enough it began to taste not so good....i love how sharp this is now.

I have blogs covering the first 40 days--was not supervised, which made me nervous about blogging about it--because beyond 20 days should be supervised. My goal was 59 days, when things went from GREAT to rapidly not feeling right, I started breaking it.
The last 3 days of the fast and especially breaking the fast was traumatic, and I do intend to cover it--but not yet. I guess that I'd have to say I should have had the breaking the fast supervised.

The fast easily made my body 20 years younger, and did at least $60,000 worth of therapeutic healing to 20-30 problems I had mostly related to the spinal injuries.

I noticed things that were short of being healed at the end of the fast, that was still healing 2 months later, but that is about when the benefits started waning,,,

So, my answer is that it was not supervised, I'd do it differently next time (most likely never more than 22-25 days). For instance, somewhere where I'd be in a forced relaxation situation--like on a HOT tropical beach where activity is unpleasant.

I have considered doing a fast at 18,000 ft at Gorak Shep (three week hike from trailhead, an hour or two from Everest Base Camp), but not when my wife is along, as she has no interest in doing more than 30 day cleanses.
I hope to climb Aconcagua next spring (23,000 ft, highest mountain outside of the Himalayas) which is now made more possible by the fast. We intend to do it unsupported for the 27 day climb, no porters or guides beyond 16,000 ft. (my wife is younger, only 50 years old).

Oh yeah, and congrats on the fast, it's a great start, sensible to start at a week and then lengthen them--I'm 30 years experienced, and have only in the last two years exceeded 22 days...
And really glad to see that you read books on the subject, because getting over a week can permanently damage your health if not done properly--I wish more people would research before doing (and resulting in improper, unhealthy practice)
So, congrats on all aspects, and the great attitude!!

I live in high desert, even 1 day dry can become life threatening--unless, of course, I was clean enough and experienced enough to explore breatharianism. (but I am not, though I did complete 49 days water only this last spring, MUCH healing).
Where can I learn more about dry fasting?

Super! Way to go. It is nice to be free of eating though, or knowing that we do not need food in the way we often perceive we do right? ....not saying it quite right. Although in one of my fast I was superobsessed with food the whole time, planning what I would eat when thru!
I dont understand dry fasting...can you expand on this? Why you choose that and how was it?
Comment by DURIANRIDER on November 4, 2010 at 5:37am
dry fasting???

staffies happen from a weak immune system and being dehydrated makes it even weaker.

During your fast, what kind of physical activity did you do? Did you mostly rest/meditate, or were you active, and how did that feel?
Comment by Jesse Purtle on November 4, 2010 at 2:03am
Good job! Fasting for a week is a great accomplishment in and of itself, let alone three days dry. That is quite incredible, I don't know very many people at all who can do that, even among some very seasoned fasters.
