48 hours. Just drank black tea or water. May have lost a bit of weight but it didn't stay off.
However, it did give me a sense of being in control of myself, like knowing I'm not going to die if I can't eat for a few days.
I remember feeling quiet uplifted on the second day.
Fasted from 9pm Friday to 9pm Sunday. Decided to eat as didn't want to go to work on Monday fasting.
I would like to do a longer fast one day. Maybe take it to four days. It's meant to be healing.
When I was in college (many years ago) I would fast occasionally for a week or more. I think the longest I went was 10 days and I broke it with a burger and fries. My GI track was not happy! Always break a longer fast slowly and with lower fat as richer foods made me so sick after such a long fast. I must admit that I loved the control I felt and had no ill effects along the way - lost a lot of weight, but we all know that it comes back when you go back to eating junk!
