Good afternoon- I restarted my water/juice fast today as well. I have been enjoying water with lemon today- I like to make fresh orange juice and will enjoy that tomorrow. I do not have a juice yet so will have to stick with simple juice until I get one- hopefully by Monday. What do you consume when you say liquids??? I have completed a 7 day water fast and loved how I felt afterwards.

hi - thanks for your reply.
i tend to drink lots of water, and then green tea as well. i also have natural apple juice. and, i even had about a 1/2 cup of chicken broth last night. i don't have a juicer, so i need to keep things simple and easy.
i just wondered if others have done liquids only for this long, and what those liquids might be? ... to get some ideas.
i did a 21 day fast years ago with only water and apple juice. it was hard, but i made it.
am really looking forward to this month ... sure hope i can make it!

I've done a day or two on what is called a monodiet...where you eat just one fruit for every meal. It's also called banana island or whatever island you are on. I've also heard of doing all brown rice as a cleansing diet. I've also done juicy juice before I had learned as much about health as I know now. At the time, I thought it was healthy because it's 100% juice with no sugar. Now I'd probably leave it alone because it's pasturized and I know that you shouldn't cook fruit. But I think it would give your digestive system a rest if that's what you're looking for.

Sorry I couldn't be more help.

thanks Lisa!
i have appreciated your posts and information. i've been reading some of your posts along the way.
i am really trying to stay with liquids only for this 31 day fast during the month of march. so far so good. i drink a lot of tea and water. i have done a couple of shakes (100% juice, some berries, protein powder, blended smooth) to keep up my energy.
i'm amazed at how well i fell ... and, today is day 6, and my stomach does not seem to be rumbling as much as the first 3 days.
thanks again!

That sounds like an interesting idea. It would also be easier to tell people about because most people can imagine a "detox" diet rather than a fast. I think for me, it would be harder to do than a fast because of the fact that after the third day, you lose your hunger on a fast but not on a liquid diet, I would think. Please share how it is going. I'd be interested in trying it if it works well.

Have you heard of the lemon cleanse? It is a detox where you make up a lemonade using fresh lemons, water, maple syrup and cayenne pepper. You drink that for however many days. They also recommend salt water flushes for bowel movements, although they have never worked for me. You could google it. I think it's called master cleanse. Also, Paul Bragg recommends using Apple Cider Vinegar, water and maple syrup during a fast as well. I've tried that, but I think the maple syrup made me crave sweets and I ended up breaking the fast.
