Idiot raises his paw, er hand... But seriously folks, I am hard headed to an extent and committed to my health and the health & well being of those I love and those who are my clients, hopefully while avoiding falling into unteachability mode, rigidity, superiority or dogma.

And sometimes I pull that off too. Hence my quote from Gandhi in my MDA & email signature....
Anyhoo.... If I'm ever fasting & it feels more 'right' to end it 'early' then so be it. Or to bail on or amend the idea of a 10 day fast being advantageous (I still think 48 hours is optimal though). There's no door prize or cash reward for going an extra 2 hours or 2 days.... Is there? Ok, so being the idiot I can be, having said that, I'm not opposed to exploring & discussing with others who have personally done long term fasts like 10 days as to what are the pros & cons, & the risk & rewards... Those experienced long term fasting people are out there, just have to make the effort to reach out to them & contact them. But I haven't been motivated or given the time/effort to do so quite yet...
