As you know I started the Lemonade Fast on June 18, 2007. This is my report for Day-3, June 20. I slept very well the night before. The day started off quite well. I had no headaches or any body pains as I did on Day-2. I had a total of 8 glasses of the lemonade. My energy level was good throughout the day and was able to handle work stress quite well, though by evening about 5 pm, I felt that I needed some rest.
As I observed my body the whole day, I realized that my body was not in such a bad shape as I thought it was before I started the fast. All the cleansing happened on Day-1 and Day-2. Today, my body was functioning normally, though I felt a bit lighter than before I started the fast. After listening to my body carefully, I decided that the 3-day fast was enough and I did not have to continue for 10 days. So, I have now decided to break my fast.
My conjecture is that may be my being a vegetarian throughout my life, contributed to my body being sort of clean. I cannot say. I don’t have any reference point, since I have never eaten any animal derived product except milk products. For the past two or so years, I have consumed milk products only sparingly, after I realized that they were the reason why I got mucus in my throat causing a lot of discomfort. Only thing I can say about the result of my fasting is that I feel lighter than I was before the fast. My body did not have undesirable reaction of any kind.
If you are non-vegetarian who went on a fast or cleansing of some kind and would like to share your experience with me, I would be very happy to hear from you.
DISCLAIMER: Before you embark on any fasting of any kind, first consult your physician and do it under strict supervision. In this article I discuss my experiment and experiences from it. If you fast after reading this article, you do it at your own risk.
