I don't think I could manage a week without food!!! But may play it by ear. I am playing 36 holes of golf on friday so was planning to eat between rounds so only fast today tomorrow and thursday really.
I was only thinking of doing it for today but now I feel fine I want to extend this.
Thanks again Michael
I hope some other folks will contribute--I'm not expert on the topic. I did do some research and reading before taking on the long fast. And, people have fasted for various reasons for thousands of years.
Of course, I'd always recommend talking to your Dr. before doing any of this (not that I ever did) but a week seems pretty reasonable and from my experience didn't get into the muscle cramp issue. Do drink lots and lots (and lots) of water it that's the way you're going. I think you'll really like the feeling if you keep it up.
