I'm looking for some people who would like to do a 5 day water fast with me... Water fasting can be a very great way to just start your weight lose.... I really want to do a longer fast but 5 is a really good if your interested I'll post more information on water fasting
I tell everyone to avoid those types of diets. If you are trying to flush your system of toxins rather for weight loss ok. But the weight you lose like this will be gained back almost instantly. There are no shortcuts for healthy living. But to each there own.
Five days of no water? Where did you hear of this?
Sorry but this is total BS.
Exactly what "toxins" does distilled water bind to? !!!
Fasts lasting a day or two are unlikely to be dangerous for most healthy adults. But high-risk people, the elderly, anyone with a chronic disease, pregnant women, and children are advised against any type of fasting.
The real danger lies in staying on the fast for prolonged periods, anywhere from three days to a month.Dangers of Fasting for Weight Loss
When you dramatically reduce your calorie intake, you will lose weight. But it can also cause all kinds of health problems, including muscle loss. Further, when you start fasting, your body goes into conservation mode, burning calories more slowly.
Keep in mind that the initial weight lost on a fast is primarily fluid or "water weight," not fat. And when you go back to eating, any lost weight usually gets a return ticket back. Not only do most people regain weight lost on a fast, they tend to add a few extra pounds because a slower metabolism makes it easier to gain weight. Worse, the weight that is regained is likely to be all fat -- lost muscle has to be added back at the gym.
Side effects of fasting include dizziness, headaches, low blood sugar, muscle aches, weakness, and fatigue. Prolonged fasting can lead to anemia, a weakened immune system, liver and kidney problems, and irregular heartbeat. Fasting can also result in vitamin and mineral deficiencies, muscle breakdown, and diarrhea. When you drink laxative concoctions during a fast, there is an increased risk of fluid imbalance and dehydration.
The risks get more complicated and severe the longer you stay on a fast, or if you repeatedly go on fasts.
*** my opinion? If you wanna fast you shouldn't be on a workout APP coz your body is gonna be to ****ed to do any kinda training!! ***
This is extremely unhealthy, unsafe, and frankly insane. For all of the reasons that have already been listed, do not do this to your body. No shortcuts to healthy living.
Do you know anything about science, nutrition, human anatomy or physiology? It kind of seems you are just refuting these scientific facts based on what you want to get out of not eating food for five days. You will lose weight by doing this fast at the cost of actually physically damaging your body and metabolism.
So are we just drinking water ONLY...no food for the 5 days? or drinking more water WITH meals?
...um hehe, pardon me if I may, but, was this not a yes or no question?... :)
Sounds crazy....hope people don't go for such dangerous diets. It can have serious repercussions on health. A day of fasting can be understood but 5 days. Do you guys want to end up in a hospital bed? When you don't eat your body breaks down your muscles and take that energy to survive. At the end you will end up losing a lot of muscles and strength and would feel lethargic. People need to abolish such practices of weight loss which will have a negative impact on your health.
I wouldn't go to this extent in my opinion. Starving your body from vital nutrients and vitamins is never a good thing. I suggest you have a look at your diet as of this moment: then change it, reduce a lot of the inessential food and try that for 5 days. People always try to go for short/ quick fixes to a long term problem. Think of it this way: thst body you have is so any years in the making (your whole life) you can't expect to change it in a matter of days. Be patient, reduce sugar, fats and some carbs for the 5 days and see how you feel from that.
Agreed *nodding my head*
Let's go back to this whole toxin flush thing. Toxin is a vague word that doesn't really hold any bearing or meaning to on this or any case. Toxins could refer to the foods that you eat (I.e. wheat, soy, eggs, etc.) that cause joint aches, enzyme imbalances, water retention, weight gain, lack of motiv a tion, and even depression just to name a few. If you do not consume these things for several days and are only excreting the remnants of what is in your body, you may gain a false sense of what is actually making you feel better. Once you begin eating these things again old symptoms will return.
A much healthier way of ridding your body of these "toxins" would be to do an elimination diet (These are difficult and thus less popular) in conjuction with blood tests, stool samples, etc. To find out what is actually causing your body to ail and to permanently remove these "toxins" from your body.
Don't tie rags around the leaky pipes, fix the damn pipes.
Starvation more like...this isn't healthy at all, sorry just my opinion. Just curious though, how are you guys going to use this workout app to train without the energy?
Hey... just wanted to see how it was going. ... Did you end up doing the fast and what did you benefit from it.... if you did the fast too,feel free to comment......if you didn't do the challenge and just want to comment something nasty .. Do not comment under this post.
So what does your muscles eat during this faste? I may be cleanse ur body but you will lose muscles in the same proces, and muscles eat your fat so I cant see how this can be healthy? Fasting a Day or two is healthy but not 5 days, thats just destroying the body
I'm in , water fast a week before my big fights and usually fully recovered and start peeking a day before the fight plus awesome for weight ins
It burns fats and toxins as a fuel source and lowers heart rate so the body heals
Workout, eat clean healthy foods, drink plenty of distilled or alkaline water.
Sweat is my detox.
Be very careful with these kind of extremes. 5 days is a very long time when you think about it. I would see a doctor on your own personal health before starting.
You might want to look into more of a lifestyle change in eating wisely. If it's a detox your wanting then try the shakeology detox. It's for one to three days but your still getting your essential vitamins. I would do just a one day thing. It'll flush you out in one day. Three shakes to replace each meal of the day then green tea in between. A light salad for dinner with either baked chicken or white fish. You can try that but if you do that I wouldnt detox for another 6 to 8 months. Just do one day girl and see how you feel. The whole starving your body for 5 days and only drink water sounds scary. I don't think our bodies are made to do that. See your doctor first. If he says you are healthy enough to do that and you want to then by all means do it...but safety first. You wouldn't want to pass out while driving or something.
Good luck! Just watching out.
