After prolonged fruit fasting I no longer had patience for pots pans cooking lugging, or paying for food that tasted like old shoe leather or dirt (vegetables/beans) when I cooked or ate it, that is when I began researching breatharians as viable.
I found in water only fasting it is very hard to work around heavy food addicted people and stay on a water fast, the food addicted have sooo many bizarre thoughts about putting foregein objects in thier mouths, they count b-12s?, and claim they must have, eat thier pound of flesh a day, covered in something gooey and offensive smelling, even though they have an extra 50 pounds of flesh and goo already hanging off of them, or they eat chalk and call it amino acid vitamins and they emit such stressed chaotic food energy emissions, I find I have to break a water fast and eat food just to get grounded, a bit sleepy, internally distracted with digestion, to tolerate, absorb the food addicts crazy vibes and the 'eating things' addiction beliefs and appetites they have, to get work done.
Water fasting is best done imo, in quiet calm stress free natural environments with other non food addicted people around. People who live to eat are always making up fantasticly complex silly stories about why they must shove non bio compatable foregein objects into thier mouths.
They remind me of unsupervised 2 year olds that eat the lead paint chips, dirt and dead flies off of window sills and then make up fantastic childish stories about why eating lead paint chips, dirt and dead flies off the window sill is something they 'need' to do. Nonsense! And these are big mis-shapen forgein object clogged ill 40 year olds, not 2 year olds!
Will try attempting another water fast next or following week when I have more peaceful time.
Thanks for your post N.H., am not surprized you note the time waste of food, I am surprized you enjoy the weight of food again in your stomach, in my experience if i eat 4 pounds of food i eliminate 4 pounds of food minus a quarter ounce of acid bile food mixed fluid my intestines squeesed out through peristalis and left to sit into my abdomen cavity until it disseminates and flows through my circulatory system and bloodstream for a day or two until my phagocytes eat, remove the forgein matter or it is deposited somewhere internally to sit.
