Time To Detox...

For a long time, I've been experiencing unhealthy eating habits. From chips, to soda, to burgers and fries, I've eaten it all. There are even times when I eat fast food almost everyday, and sometimes I even eat fat greasy foods late at night, past 10p.m. I cant help but to feel so disgusted with myself when I binge on a whole box of cookies in 1 day. My bad eating habits are also interfering with my health, and have caused a few minor problems before. I'm always running to the doctor for check-up's and follow-ups because of some type of infection that occurred.

The only good thing about eating so much, is having the ability to not gain so much weight because of my high metabolism. But the truth is, internally my body is horrible, and I'm out of shape. I always feel tired, sluggish and lazy, and I feel that it's the right time to detoxify myself.

I've been doing some research and found that I can actually detox myself by drinking water! Only water, nothing else. It's basically a water fast. I've read journals of people who did water fasts, watched videos on Youtube, and read articles for months. I have been thinking of doing this fast since last year, but was never disciplined enough to go through with it. Well, now I feel it's time to really cleanse out my body.

Water fasting is very beneficial, because it removes all the nasty toxins from your body, clears up your skin, and helps you drop a few pounds too. People who have tried it felt energized and brand new. This experience also led them to eat healthier, which is what I need to start doing. People usually fast for 3 days or more. There was a woman on Youtube who did for 40 days!

Anyways I am gonna start my fast at 1AM on Monday May 31st to start off fresh. I'm going to attempt to do it for 7 days, so wish me luck. I will keep you all posted with a daily update on my fast. I'm not doing it for weight loss purposes, I am doing it for cleansing. This procedure is very healthy and most Doctors recommend it to their patients. Thanks for reading.

**Update** I will be restarting my fast on June 6, 2010 because it will be the beginning to a brand new week, and I would like to start off fresh.

Sounds like a good idea. I've read in a few articles that drinking too much water can be deadly. Just make sure you're not drinking so much water that you're drowning yourself from the inside out :)
