Day 1 of a 7 day water fast.

I've developed some unhealthy eating patterns lately, so I need a reset. I've done a 3 day water fast before. It went surprisingly well. I liked the mental clarity that came with it and feeling reconnected with my body again. I haven't experienced real hunger in a long time - I mostly eat out of habit or being bored. I'll be working out for the first three days, taking a break after that. Time to burn some reserves. 💪💪
Fasting stats. I still have 153 hours to go.
 
are we talking about nothing but water for a week here? Surely that can’t be good for you.
 
Can beer be considered a type of water?
 
You can do without food for 40 days, without water for only 3. Especially, ahem, if you have some reserves like me.
 
supposedly it has all sorts of health benefits. We'll see :)
 
I'm also anxious to hear how this goes. I could see where it could be beneficial or detrimental. It's not something I've tried before.

I’ve don’t intermittent fasting in the past, when I used to lift weights. But I’d keep my cal count below 500/day so I still had something.

I don’t think I could ever go a full week.
 
I've never really done it to be honest, but I feel like if I did, it would be easier for me to go all the way. I'm not good with moderation.
 
There are vitamins that can be stored as fat but vitamin C is NOT one of them. You will ruin your immune system. At least get some of your water from eating 1 orange a day.
 
When I read "water fast" I thought you meant "no water", and was concerned until I realized you meant "only water". Now I am less concerned.
