I started a 2 week water fast
« on: September 11, 2023, 08:14:17 AM »
I'm on day three and woke up with incredible hunger. I almost gave in until I drank some green tea. I've been doing intermittent fasting for years: I've done multiple 24 hour fasts, even a few 48 hour fasts. I've done a lot of dry fasting for Ramadan. I actually find dry fasting easier than water fasting but either way, this is my first 2 week fast. I've been getting closer to Allah the past two days. It's a nice cleanse. i went to morning prayer at the masjid the past couple of days and it feels good. I've been taking electrolyte supplements which have lots of sodium, calcium, vitamin D, magnesium;etc. in pill form. I pop the pill off and just swallow with some water or tea. It's actually delicious. Mmmm salt.

This sounds dangerous...

hydration is pretty important to life. Be careful.

Inshaa Allah!

I haven't been hungry all day beyond that initial hunger this morning. Green tea :rejoice

Bro it means I'm withholding food for two weeks. Only water, coffee, tea. No sugar.

Turns out I'm doing the salt and potassium wrong. If you do too much wrong potassium can burn a hole in your stomach lining, leading to ulcers. You have to dissolve it in water. Thankfully I've only used two pills before this.

Eh, you can't get closer to Allah than meeting him in person.

You think someone will die not eating for two weeks?

:heh

Day four: woke up to slight hunger but it's subdued and manageable. Drank pickle juice for "breakfast". Had to check the ingredients first of course. My first can of pickle juice had high fructose corn syrup. In fucking pickles. Fuck this deplorable greedy country at times lmao. Thankfully I checked and bought something different. Pickle juice :rejoice

I was basically telling you to eat more of those pills. You should be able to go at least a month without food barring any underlying diseases.

Yup. I want to do a 40 day fast some time but I think that one would require more medical supervision.

So I'm working my way up to it by doing a two week fast first. Honestly this isn't that bad and easier than expected. I notice that mostly want to eat just to eat at times.

The pills I got have 250 mg of sodium so I need to take 4-5 a day to hit daily value.

I forgot I'm going to a resort next week. :fbm

I have to stop this fast then. I want to take advantage of all that food next week. I will still be fasting then when I go and if I stop this a week ahead of time I'll still have a few days of refeed.

So best to stop now. I'll start over after the vacation. This was pretty easy though. Lost four pounds. Half of it being water weight probably but still pretty good.

If we met you wouldn't be able to look me in the eyes anyways. Out of sight, out of mind. Wouldn't mind talking to your lady though.

Himu and James meeting at the resort like
:mynicca :pika


Anyway, I consulted with the brave Mujahideen, they all agreed that such resorts are a gift from Allah to their devoted followers and not accepting such a wonderful gift would be an insult to the almighty.

Makes sense to me.

James, height is just a number. It doesn't mean much when you're horizontal laying on a bed which is an experience you'll be witnessing as you record me and your woman explore each other's boundaries.

Ironically I only drank water yesterday but for other reasons lol. Today I've eaten already but I'm def curious if I can actually go a week doing only water. I think I could if I lived alone. Fuck it I'm gonna still try.

If you do, get your electrolytes in: sodium, magnesium, potassium. Coffee (black) and tea are allowed and  you can use stevia as a sweetener, no calories to break the fast.

One trick is to put pink Himalayan salt or iodine salt directly into water. Works like a charm. Has to be iodine of some kind. Can't use something like kosher.

Honestly the worst day of this is the first day because you could easily break it and you're hungry AF.
