I agree that breaking the fast on the 23rd would be prudent so that I could enjoy a more normal Christmas experience and spare myself any surprises. Although, to be fair, I've read a lot of accounts of people fasting for 30-40 days and breaking their fasts with, say, a cup of milk. An hour later, they eat like a pound of meat, haha. I hope I'll be in a position to eat more or less normally after the fast. A day or so to get used to eating in small amounts is probably a good idea, certainly, but I hope my body will be able to handle a decent meal when all is said and done.
I don't honestly see the point in an enema, to be honest. Although I understand that it would clean me out, I think my body's quite capable of doing the work on its own. Moreover, so long as I continue supplementing, I think I'll be OK so far as nutrients go. Thanks for all of the concern, though! I appreciate the suggestions.
I'm nearly to the 96 hour mark. The cravings for food have been intense. It probably doesn't help that I had to stop by the grocery store, haha. They were offering free samples of stuff and the smells coming from the bakery were mind-numbingly good. Staying strong, though. Headed to bed soon. Can't believe I'll be crossing the 100 hour mark soon. Each time I think to myself: "Huh, I haven't eaten in three or four days" it's a little surreal.
