I Drank Only Water for 20 Days, See What Happened to My Body

What is water fasting? What are its benefits? Intermittent fasting is gaining huge popularity as a dietary option, but what actually happens to your body when you fast? When I first heard about water fasting, I thought, “No way am I doing this!” But after doing some research and finding out about the benefits of this process, I changed my mind. And now I’m going to tell you what I experienced during my 20-day water fast.

The first 2 days were going to be the most difficult. And they were indeed! I felt incredibly hungry — almost as if I had missed several breakfasts, lunches, and dinners. My energy level dropped, and my mood left much to be desired. I was increasingly irritated, and my patience was wearing thin.

SUMMARY:
– When your body can’t get access to carbohydrates (its favorite source of energy), it starts to use stored fats. As a result, you can lose about 1 lb of fat every day. This makes water fasting one of the most effective short-term weight loss methods.
– Water fasting can also help if you have digestive problems like irritable bowel, diarrhea, gas, gastritis, constipation, or loss of appetite.
– The first 2 days were going to be the most difficult. I felt incredibly hungry — almost as if I had missed several breakfasts, lunches, and dinners.
– On the third day, the second stage of my water fasting began. By that time, the much-awaited process of ketosis had started. That’s when your body gets down to burning the fat it has stored as it has no other sources of energy.
– After the first week of feeding myself nothing but water, I experienced a kind of “fasting high.” I felt great, happy, and impressively energetic. But what pleased me the most was a particular clarity of mind.
– When I got to the fifteenth day of my water fasting, I was incredibly proud of myself! I knew that very few people reach this stage. I also knew that this was a period when I had to be immensely attentive to my condition and visit a doctor if I felt that something had gone wrong.
– Believe it or not, I felt at my best after my water fast. I lost some weight (though not as much as I’d expected). My vitals were impressive in a good way, and some health abnormalities were no longer a cause for concern.

  1. I went for a fast for a year without grains, pulses, or non vegetarian food. Also i fasted during Shiva’s month on 1 liter of milk per day.

  2. Useless Way to reduce weight, unnecessarily disturbing body’s metabolism is going to ruin your health later. Rather Go for Yoga, and Workouts in order to loose weight.

  3. Did this 20 years ago for 22 days! Not for weight loss. But I loss 13 lbs. Did it for spiritual enlightenment! Broke for warm milk and a slice of bread.

  4. There are numerous ways to reduce weight. If reducing weight becomes your obsession, then you will definitely reduce your weight anyhow. The hardest part is to maintain that weight. So make a smart sustainable diet plan that you can enjoy and maintain your weight for lifetime. Maintaining weight is all about calories intake and calories expenditure.

  5. Lies. Exercising during the last stages of your fast…too far fetched. Did you put something in your water? I have fasted with water only before for 14days n I had no energy so exercise was not an option for me.

  6. You commuted, went to the gym and did your usual activities on work whilst not having no solid foods for 20 days?….. hmmm…. unless your job involves a lot of sitting and your walk from home to the train station and then to work totals 4 mins and yiur gym time is 5mins that sounds a little far fetched…..

  7. IF U WANT TO LOOK LIKE A MUMMY GO AHEAD…..
    20 DAYS……
    2 days is enough
    And I don’t remember with how many days u do detox but 20 days? 😐😐😐👎

  8. Life is so short 😅 no thx I prefer to eat and drink only what I like 🍫🍬🍸🍔🍟🥨🍞🍜 🥤short and happy …not long with no pleasure 😈

  9. No One:-

  10. I’m going to start water fasting.. I’m 103 kgs.. If anyone interested tell me.. We’ll start together.. That will help us stay motivated..

  11. I’m gonna do it but only for 3 days right now, starting today 😭 ask me how it goes if I forget to update

  12. The eye of Horus, the oriental meditative worship of the Sun says volumes. As a spiritual man, I see much deeper the intended destination.
