I finally found something from my past. A thread I was a part of six and a half years ago that I had almost forgotten. I believe it's most likely the reason WHY I gave up being the water-only fasting forum monitor and wanted it to go to chrisb1.
I had almost forgotten this until a few moments ago when somebody brought up the word "ketoacidosis".
PLEASE, read this thread.
I did remember that there IS a darn good reason why I strongly urge people to be monitored when fasting, or at the very least GET monitored on your first fast.
However, I had already 'been there and done that' on a fast PRIOR to this thread-link's posts.
Fasting is not something to be taken lightly.
Not by a long-shot.
Embarrassed enough to NOT give you the information?
Do NOT make the same mistakes I have done and (potentially) kill yourself or cause irreparable harm. I am most grateful for having just been reminded WHY it is SO IMPORTANT to KNOW about fasting before you even start.
