The fast absolutely helped, both the 14-day water fast and 90-day juice fast. They were both good for different reasons. I found the water fast easier, but also because it's unsafe to go much beyond 14-days then it wasn't as cleansing to my body as the 90-day juice fast was overall.

I've always liked water. Ice cold water. And I've been on a water only diet for years (no soda, coffee, caffeine etc) which made it easier. Interestingly enough, since I moved to Ecuador, I've started drinking Coke for the first time in probably 8-10 years. It's a bad development...

thanks. were these one right after the other or did was there space between them? reason im asking is, if not, how did you go about eating again after the fast? did you slowly move back into eating like veggie soups and fruits? i figured i would go with a veggie broth soup with only mushy vegetables. then again the next day by adding rice or something.

dont believe anything you hear and only half of what you see

I'm not sure what autoimmune disease you are trying to impact, and I'm not a doctor, but I do very much believe in the power of diet. It's simply our fuel that powers and governs everything in our life, so obviously it has the biggest impact.

I don't know how long you are intending to the water fast, and I don't know your health condition, but if it is safe to do so and you want to see more results you might transition from the water fast to a juice fast after around day 14, and try to go to 30 days on juice.

The juice fast is where I really noticed a lot of health benefits. Some really disgusting stuff getting eliminated from my body in armpits, tongue, just a nasty "smell" in general, etc. It really was eye opening. Most of it didn't start until after the 30 day mark though. It takes the body a long time to process the stored fat and material that is deep in your system.

i was just going to do 5 days on the water fast and then restructure my eating as i come out of it. i have actually been eating really healthy anyways for the last 9 months anyways. quit smoking and drinking as well. this is the diet i was going to try out. What is the Paleo Autoimmune Protocol? | Phoenix Helix juicing isnt out of the realm of possibility either since i think it pretty much fits in with it. my main goal isnt really a detox, but that will definitely be a positive side product of it all. im really shooting for the immune system reset and from what ive read you really need to not provide the body anything other than water which is why i was focusing on the fast.

Yes, start slow on real food. Honestly it was no problem for me eating cooked food again quickly, even the second day. But most have problems so go slow.

After the 90 day I stayed on mostly salads, plus some beans and rice and fruit for months.

My goal was weight loss. I lost 50 pounds on the 90 day juice fast.

i have an immune disease that i have tried basically everything medically to fix. the strong medication family of biologics has helped. i really dont want to be taking these things forever. another thing that started up the last couple years was that my guts were terrible. i felt nauseous all the time and every time i ate. i couldnt poop for up to a week at a time, but it felt like i had to go all the time. if i went somewhere it felt like i was going to crap myself but i couldnt go. made long car rides very scary and paranoia definitely set in. so i had two things going on. both could easily be related. i never had a dr. check out the gut issue as that was a fairly recent thing(couple years). anyways i changed my diet and it literally only took a month to get back to normal. it was pretty amazing. im 6ft and weighed at the most around 190. for the last 5-6 months ive been hovering around the 160-165 area. that to me seems like a normal comfortable weight. though i never really thought i was heavy at 190 and the weight loss was just a byproduct. this fasting step to see if i can improve my first situation seems like a no brainer. in reality i dont want to lose anymore weight, but i know that will happen.

Look up a guy named Dan on YouTube, his handle is life regenerator I think. The dude is crazy, but has a lot of hands on experience using diet to combat disease.

You can email him and he'll reply, or he used to a few years ago, and make specific recommendations.

ok thanks. I've also heard about a book or diet about eating for your specific blood type. I guess certain foods good better with certain blood types than others.

its Autoimmune Paleo/Protocol. basically its a restricted paleo diet that totally removes some foods. then temporarily removes some more for 30 days. you then start adding back the foods in the temporary column slowly and one at a time to see if it affects you in any way.

Idk, seems like a form of self torture. I mean I'm sure it does have some benefits to water fast but isn't it painful to go days without eating? Wouldn't it just be better to choose a better diet and/or just exercise more? Why the urge to go to such an extreme? Maybe I've never encountered an ailment that has persisted that can be healed by it so I've never had the need to do it. Usually when I go without food for a couple of meals my thoughts get really foggy and my mental state starts to deteriorate. To me it feels unhealthy physically but maybe I'm wrong. I've seen a lot of mixed reviews by the health world.
