I've done a 14-day water fast and a 90-day juice fast.

I prefer cold water. And be careful on the lemon juice, when your stomach is empty it is a bad idea.

First 3 days will be the hardest, gets easier from there, particularly after 5-7 days.

It's not that hard really, depending on your motivations.

ya, im at 48hrs right now. pretty good at deflecting the hunger pangs towards other things till its time for bed. in your fast did you accomplish what you were set out for, be it physically or maybe mentally/spiritual?

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...

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.
