I decided to do a water fast earlier this week. I normally do intermittent fasting, but decided to do a 3 day water fast. So this means no food, only water for 3 days. The reason for this choice is I would like to better my health. It's a tough task but I'm going to get it done.
I'm currently on Day 2 of my fast, exactly 40 hrs at the time I'm writing this blog. Last night was somewhat rough for me. Around 27 hrs in i was really feeling the hunger pains in my stomach. It lasted about an hour and subsided, I normally just drink some water when I feel hungry.
At the moment I don't have any hunger pains, but I do have a slight headache. Apparently this is one of the Day 2 symptoms, along with nausea, and loss of energy. My energy level's is pretty fine at the moment. Maybe as the day drags on I might feel a change.
As far as the headaches its pretty much my body reacting to the toxins being released into my bloodstream. I read depending on how good or bad your diet was prior to fasting, determines how severe your fasting symptoms will be. I try eat decent, but I did eat meat pretty much everyday. Gods know what toxins are in those meats.
My ultimate reason for doing this fast is to gradually reverse the affects of my Type II diabetes. I've read that water fasting can help, and the more regularly I do it the better chance I have. I don't like taking medication so hopefully this will help me ween myself of the dependency of medication to control my blood sugar levels.

I will keep you guys posted on my journey. My goal is 3 days but I'll try to stretch it longer depending how I feel. I'll also explain how one should break the fast. Thanks guys
