    ive been reading about this for some time now and i think im ready to try it out. has anyone heard of it or even tried it? it sounds kinda hippieish but it can hurt the only bad thing is that i cant eat solid foods for at least ten days.

    here is a link if anyone knows anythingabout this or fasting in general please help me out ive never done this and my wife and i are wanting to try it

    http://www.thenaturalremedies.com/bonus3/TheMaster.pdf


    day 1: nothing new really a little hungry but not bad at all. i waited till one full day in to wiegh myself and im at 243 lbs. the taste of this stuff isnt good by any means but its not teribble. the good news is that ive discovered REAL maple syrup icant wiat to get this over with so i can have me some pancakes!

    day 2: i lost 6lbs overnight down to 237. im noticing my teeth are almost grity feeling so im brushing about twice as much (hast to be a good thing). the hunger hasnt really kicked in like i thought it would by now but im only two days in. i found out that i cant have coffie which may be the deciding factor in this mess since i work overnight shift and i rely on it to keep me awake!


    day 3: nothing new other than thie drink is getting a little bland tasteing and im having troble drinking as much as i when i started. my wieght is down to 234. the weekend is here and its going to be hard not to eat, i guess ill just try to find something to keep my mind off of it

    day 4: well i came home from work last night at around 4:00 am and my wife had bought a pizza! it was sitting there lookin so good in the fridge and well lets just say i only lasted 3 days and 16 hours out of the ten i honestly dont think that the pizza was what gave me in but it was there and i was so hungry. i sucks too becuase i was starting to notice a lot more energy and i felt a lot more comfortable (not full all the time) i think ill try this agian not soon but i would like to see if i can go farther. i think this would be a good time to "challenge" everyone following me on this fast to beat my 3days and 16 hours.


    thanks for the support and good luck

    the link i posted has the recipe but it doesnt say that you have to drink at least six glasses of the stuff during the minimum ten days like every thing else i read, however since this is the only thing your body ingests im sure that ill need six or more!

    Kinda sounds like the 'South Beach Diet', allowing the citric acids in the drink to cleanse your system and raise your metabolism to an astronomical rate.

    I wouldn't do it. For me muscle mass is generally important and diets like these decrease muscle mass

    10 day fasting wont decrease muscle mass that much
     
  13. I've heard of people trying this before, I've considered it, but I'm a 240 pound man... I didnt get this way by skipping meals...

    This was originally meant to be a 2 day detox, but of course everybody goes to the extreme and now it's a diet! I wouldn't recommend it in the long run. There is no protein, and that is the most important macro nutrient needed for the body. 10 days won't hurt ya .. you'll lose weight, but you might gain some of it back the moment you get back to your regular routine.

    I would avoid any diet that claims it can cure AIDS. If that doesn't trigger anybody's bull**** alarm, nothing will.

    That's nothing..I heard this diet attracts nude women to your home. By day 7..nude women begin to show up at your door begging you to slay them.

    My old boss did something similar. Don't think it was this specifically, but it was a lemonade with syrup. Do some research and check out other recipes.

    The first three days are the hardest, hunger wise, and it is advisable to not work or need to be around people on day 2 and 3. My boss timed that out for a weekend. She wound up doing it for 14 days, and told us she didn't even feel hungry after day 4. Could have kept going if it wasn't a health risk to do so.

    I just did a 3 day fast/cleanse. Just a ton of water and detox teas for 3 days, then alot of raw and low cal foods for an additional 10 days. It's no biggie, as I do it about once a year. I start when I feel sluggish and tired alot, when I start over sugaring my coffee, and start over salting my food. I feel like a million bucks when I'm done, as any craving is gone, and my liver, kidneys, and GI tract got a much needed rest and cleanse.

    TRUE STORY:

    3 years ago I started getting sharp pains in my stomach and started puking bile every once and while..

    I went to a doctor and he told me I had a Ulcer that was in a preliminary stage and I had to quit tomatoes and other acidic foods.

    After this visit I went on a 15 day vacation to Las Vegas. For 15 days..all I ate was restaurant food, and drank an average of 20 to 25 beers a day.

    When I returned..I felt great.

    I went for a checkup to check on mr. ulcer....IT WAS DAMN NEAR GONE!. I also lost 2 pounds.

    The doctor asked what I did..and I told him that I stopped eating any acidic foods and red meat..but I ate everything else as well as drink ALOT of beer.

    he said that he had heard cases before where Beer had helped on Ulcers..but not like this.


    I am thinking about repeating this diet this summer...except that I will do it in the Keys instead of Vegas.

    I had a similar event occur in college. I started vomiting blood, and having an upset stomach. A friend told me it was most likely an ulcer. Said that if I went to a Dr. they would probably tell me I had to stop drinking for a couple months at least. So I never went to the doctor, and kept drinking like a fish. Worked out great! I think...

    I'm sorry but this seems extremely unhealthy. Just a word to the wise, if it says you'll lose 10 pounds in 10 days or something like that, it's probably too good to be true. Even if it were true, it's definitely the unhealthy route to take. If you want to lose weight, then just exercise 30-45 minutes a day, eat 4-5 small meals a day, 3 hours or so apart... drink plenty of water... don't eat 2 hours before bed... and get 6-8 hours of sleep.

    im not doing it to lose weight. im doing it as a fast. im pretty sure the weight lost is mostly um.... removeable weight anyway. many people have done this with no problems and went for more than the ten days that are reccomened. that said this is the first time ive done any thing like this so im no expert.

    Fasting is major in the Middle East correct? I believe thats one of their four rituals or I can't remember what they are called. I don't know how I could do that, ten days is a lot. I'm definitely interested in the outcome of this though. I will definitely check in this thread to see how its going. :up:. Wish you the best with it.

    EDIT: Just got some time to do research.

    My roomate did this for a couple days. Pretty sure its not harmful, it actually flushes your whole system or something like that. I was going to do it with her but...I was drunk when I said I would do it...then I ate a bunch of food. But yea, good luck with this bro.
