Day 1 of a 7 day water fast.
I've developed some unhealthy eating patterns lately, so I need a reset. I've done a 3 day water fast before. It went surprisingly well. I liked the mental clarity that came with it and feeling reconnected with my body again. I haven't experienced real hunger in a long time - I mostly eat out of habit or being bored. I'll be working out for the first three days, taking a break after that. Time to burn some reserves. 💪💪
@Gina are we talking about nothing but water for a week here? Surely that can’t be good for you.
@kev supposedly it has all sorts of health benefits. We'll see :)
It's probably much better for you to just reduce your calorie intake a bit, but do it permanently. Or even better, exercise.
Aerobic exercising helps you lose excess weight (low intensity burns fat, high burns carbohydrates), it builds muscle and can be crazy fun if you find what's right for you. It's a win-win situation!
I'm sorry to say it but these short lived endeavours are rather pointless. Doing a little your whole life is superior to doing a lot for a short while.
