In answer to your question, yes I am on a fast. It is the evening of the 7th day,, and I feel great!
When I first started being interested in fasting,I had many questions, like everyone does. I somehow found this forum, and this is where I got and continue to be educated.
Asking questions, and checking out the answers, (I am a natural skeptic)is how I've become comfortable with the process of fasting.
ChrisB 1 is "The Man" on this forum, his advice is spot on, and his personal story is very compelling. He promoted reading Dr. Shelton's book on fasting, and I too would recommend doing that.
I think,and talk about food all the time when I am fasting. I believe it is normal, something that I have been physically and emotionally attached to for more years than I care to admit,is missing. Sometimes this thinking about food can be mistaken,(at least by me)as hunger. I think my taste-buds sometimes act like spoiled children, they put up a fit when they aren't getting what they want, and try to trick you into giving them what they want...haha
