Solenn and I were looking for a challenge this year. We decided to do a 7-day Water Fast. The premise is simple: 7 whole days with no food, just water. NOTHING ELSE. No juices, coffee, tea, broths, vitamins, etc. If it’s not just water, it’s not a water fast! 🙂

Some people say it’s good for you, some say it’s bad. I think we are smart enough to know when something isn’t working. So if you feel like this isn’t for you, don’t do it.

WARNING: please don’t do this if you are underweight, have/have had an eating disorder, or any medical conditions. Talk to your doctor first before doing any sort of diet.

Before you try this, read up on fasting with these sources:
