Folks, day 7 was WATER-FASTING DAY! Something I have never, ever done. The entire day was spent consuming nothing but plain and/or coconut water.
Started out pretty well until I got to around noon time. The growling in my stomach began. To rectify that, I simply drank more water until I was full.
A wonderful flush for the kidneys for sure. Many, many, many visits to the bathroom.
I stayed away from pictures or discussions of food because I knew that being as hungry as I was, it would have been easy to grab something...anything in sight.
Carried on until around 6:00pm then I started getting a slight headache along with a lethargic feeling. I simply told myself that the best thing to do at this point was to go to bed early.
I did exactly that, so by 7:00pm I was out like a light!!
I woke up the next morning feeling so proud of myself for sticking the process out and for rewarding my body (particularly as a woman over 50) with this wonderful flush and for allowing my stomach muscles to relax for a day.
The next go-round is the fruitarian segment, where I eat only raw foods--nothing with any form of heat applied to it--which would mostly be fruits, vegetables, and nuts.
