    diet consists of 10 days water only no food no noting just water

    Water Fast

    You can fast from 1 to 40 days. Try to drink 2 liters of water or more per day.

    The ten day water fast has become a recommended number of days. Ten days on water will cause the same weight loss as 30 days on juice. But water fasting is far more difficult, especially if you have a fast metabolism. Water fasting cleanses the body aggressively removing toxins rapidly. Water fasting can be more beneficial than juice fasting in combating more persistent forms of cancer, cleansing the tissues more aggressively. Water fasting demands mental preparation, the less pressure and responsibility you have during a water fast the better. Think of it a holiday away form the normal patterns of living. Some recommend that the week before your fast, you drink fresh juices and eat mostly raw fruits and vegetables to cleanse the body so that the detoxification during water fasting will be less aggressive. Water fasting should always include two of three days of juice fasting before and after the water fast. This alternating between juice and water fasting is the most effective method of achieving a full cleansing through fasting.

    Water Fasting Tips
    Avoid water straight from the faucet. Distilled water is the best for cleansing because of its inherent, magnetic properties and ability to absorb and suspend large quantities of toxins, flushing them from the body. The perceived value of mineral water is misleading because the inorganic minerals are like huge boulders to the cellular membranes, making them impossible to assimilate. Plants are able to break down the minerals from the soils, allowing them to be completely absorbable to the cells of the body. The best water is distilled, secondly, spring or filtered.

    Proteins & Fasting
    It was theorized that protein loss during fasting was harmful and that a fast should be supplemented with protein. Fasting with protein became known as the Opti-fast. Fasters took nothing but water and a protein drink. Sadly, several people died. Protein digestion during the fasting state created an overload of urea and the blood become acidic. In this condition, the organs become more damaged instead of healing. To the body, fasting is a natural process. During water or juice fasting, the protein levels of the blood remain constant. Although protein is being utilized, a person fasting 40 days on water will not suffer a deficiency of either protein, vitamins, minerals or fatty acids. In the breakdown of dying and diseased cells, all essential substances are available while fasting for reuse within the body. These dead cells are utilized in a systematic manner.

    Protein deficiency is non existent in North America. You never hear of anyone being diagnosed with protein deficiency. Fruit and vegetable juices have water-soluble highly absorbable proteins. The body has a store of protein, and it uses it selectively. Dying cells are the first to be used and healthy and vital tissues are the very last and will only be used as a last resort. Only during starvation is protein being stripped from healthy tissue to be used to survive. This may take 30 to 80 days of fasting on water to reach this point.

    The systematic searching of cells to be metabolized is crucial in the healing of cancer. A cancer cell represents protein and calories. Some cancers are so persistent that you have to force the body to choose between healthy cells and cancer cells. This requires a long fast on small portions of juice combined with days of water fasting.

    You will lose the weight fast but the odds are you will gain the weight back just as fast. You may end up heavier than you were before you started this diet. I am speaking from my own personal experience. I used to go on these type of diets all the time. It is not a healthy way to lose weight.

    This losing fat forum is getting ridiculous, people seem to get lazier and lazier the longer I'm around here.

    Look at anyone who's gotten ripped and stayed there and see if they crash dieted (Velocity, PSMF, Juice fasting, retarded maple syrup fasting, or water fasting). I guarantee you that they haven't. Every single admirable physique I've seen on these forums was created with hard work. If you could just stop eating and get a maintainble ripped body then everyone would have one.

    Life is to short to go through that kind of bullcrap.

    Lots of people starved to death in concentration camps during world war II.

    I think I'll show them some respect by saying, that is the stupidest thing you could ever do.

    There was some guy here that starved himself for a week then for the next week or so, he would eat only a fruit a day. He lost a lot of weight but it was almost all his muscle mass. He complained about how depressed he was throughout the whole thing and contemplated suicide many times. He won the transformation of the week here because of the noticeable difference.

    Anyway, he is now preaching to people trying these starvation diets to NOT do it. He said he regrets doing it so much.

    BTW, does anyone have have a link to his transformation, or atleast who it was? I can't remember for the life of me and I've tried searching for it again but I couldn't find it.

    Try restricting yourself to nothing but water for just five days and see what happens (speaking from experience).
    This is something that no one in their right mind should ever do.

    wow just think of the amount of muscle lost... assuming a maintanace of 3000 usually, dropping down to 2500 without food, x10 days thats 25 000 calories, divided by 3500 for lbs and we see a figure of 7 lb of bodymass aside from water lost in 10 days... then realizing that 60% of that is muscle and only 40% is fat when starving yourself we get a sweet sum of 4.2lb of muscle lost, and 3.8lb of fat.

    In 10 days of proper dieting and cardio you can lose ~3lb of fat with miniscule losses to muscle mass. Sooo...

    Do the math! This is some DUMB **** to do!
    Don't take life too seriously. You'll never get out of it alive.

    look... i don't like to make fun of anyone, or anyone's ideologies. this is not a diet - it's a radical, last-chance attempt to cleanse the body. you're talking about purging the body of toxins and cancers. this is a forum for fat loss. no-one in their right mind would choose this process to lose weight - it's not necessary. like DJohnson said, it's about hard work and eating the right foods. a healthy body is a lifestyle, not a quick-fix approach.

    and as for the comment above... i'm no nutritionist, but i reckon starvation would kick in considerably quicker than 30 - 80 days.

    Thumbs down

    The problem with "diets" (I am trying to use that word liberally here) like these is that they teach nothing on how to achieve a healthy lifestyle, something that was avoided in the first place which caused one to get fat. Hence to truly lose weight, aka fat and keep it off, one needs to adjust an entire lifestyle and basing it on starvation is fool hardy. Learn proper nutrition and exercise and realize that chips, soda, candy etc is the seasoning of life, not the main course.

    Thumbs up Remember Biology, not propaganda.

    Here I will be conservative in my response, as I must once again point out that several, if not most, of these "opinions" stem from fear of the unknown, or fear and lack of study from those who feel they know it all.

    Since I imagine most have studied biology in school, then try to remember that:

    1.) We were taught that the body does not attack itself, unless it is grossly sick (like cancer). The body nurtures, cleans and regenerates itself, attacking only what shouldn't be there.

    If you are a Christian then you believe that Jesus fasted for 40 days, and people in general may fast for Spiritual, Health or other personal reasons... and if they are doing it for losing weight, then their motivation may stem from the same as body builders.

    Muscle is the last thing your body will consume when starving yourself, and starvation takes place after a month or more. Fasting is not starving, though you might hear it as an offhand remark; taking it literally is quite the uneducated thing to do.

    and

    2.) We also learned that the human body gets most of its protein from plants, and it also digests this protein so much easier than what comes from meat. Meat is unecessary to build muscle when you have a superior protein from plants (remember your biology class!!!). And what of Elephants, Apes, Horses, Deer? They eat absolutely no meat and these animals are strong, some carrying trees, ripping their adversaries apart with their bare hands, dragging farm equipment and locomotives all day long... They eat no meat.

    Are we carnivorous like the lion, dog, wolf, cat, etc.? Why do they have so many unique characteristics which set them apart from us when it comes to eating meat? They have a very simple and short digestive system, only 3 times the length of their bodies for quick expulsion of putrefactive bacteria of rotting flesh. They also have 10 times as much hydrochloric acid to digest fibrous tissue because flesh decays quickly, and the products of this decay quickly poison the bloodstream if they remain too long in the body.
    Think twice before stating ignorant propaganda to sell you on commercial goods, and remember that though we enjoy our Western way of life, it is a Capitalistic culture. (Btw, protein is overated, more illnesses come from too much protein, than lack of it).

    People fast for Spiritual reasons, getting a closer feeling to God.

    Some fast for health reasons, the absence of eating leaves that energy to direct itself where it is needed. Don't underestimate the power or purpose of the digestive system, it is the most important thing your body does and digestion comes first (not to mention the hardest thing your body will ever do - nothing is harder for your body - just look at the surge of tiredness that quickly comes when you eat). If you are loaded up with meat then energy for anything else is less.

    And some fast for weighloss, which might seem shallow to some unless you look at what some people do to their bodies to look good, a personal thing for sure.

    Fasting as a spiritual discipline (practiced by most major religions) is completely different than fasting for weight loss. In fact, many religious teachers who discuss fasting will state very clearly that losing weight shouldn't be a goal as it all comes right back on.

    The ten day water fast has become a recommended number of days. Ten days on water will cause the same weight loss as 30 days on juice. But water fasting is far more difficult, especially if you have a fast metabolism. Water fasting cleanses the body aggressively removing toxins rapidly. Water fasting can be more beneficial than juice fasting in combating more persistent forms of cancer, cleansing the tissues more aggressively. Water fasting demands mental preparation, the less pressure and responsibility you have during a water fast the better. Think of it a holiday away form the normal patterns of living. Some recommend that the week before your fast, you drink fresh juices and eat mostly raw fruits and vegetables to cleanse the body so that the detoxification during water fasting will be less aggressive. Water fasting should always include two of three days of juice fasting before and after the water fast. This alternating between juice and water fasting is the most effective method of achieving a full cleansing through fasting.

    Water Fasting Tips
    Avoid water straight from the faucet. Distilled water is the best for cleansing because of its inherent, magnetic properties and ability to absorb and suspend large quantities of toxins, flushing them from the body. The perceived value of mineral water is misleading because the inorganic minerals are like huge boulders to the cellular membranes, making them impossible to assimilate. Plants are able to break down the minerals from the soils, allowing them to be completely absorbable to the cells of the body. The best water is distilled, secondly, spring or filtered.

    Proteins & Fasting
    It was theorized that protein loss during fasting was harmful and that a fast should be supplemented with protein. Fasting with protein became known as the Opti-fast. Fasters took nothing but water and a protein drink. Sadly, several people died. Protein digestion during the fasting state created an overload of urea and the blood become acidic. In this condition, the organs become more damaged instead of healing. To the body, fasting is a natural process. During water or juice fasting, the protein levels of the blood remain constant. Although protein is being utilized, a person fasting 40 days on water will not suffer a deficiency of either protein, vitamins, minerals or fatty acids. In the breakdown of dying and diseased cells, all essential substances are available while fasting for reuse within the body. These dead cells are utilized in a systematic manner.

    Protein deficiency is non existent in North America. You never hear of anyone being diagnosed with protein deficiency. Fruit and vegetable juices have water-soluble highly absorbable proteins. The body has a store of protein, and it uses it selectively. Dying cells are the first to be used and healthy and vital tissues are the very last and will only be used as a last resort. Only during starvation is protein being stripped from healthy tissue to be used to survive. This may take 30 to 80 days of fasting on water to reach this point.

    The systematic searching of cells to be metabolized is crucial in the healing of cancer. A cancer cell represents protein and calories. Some cancers are so persistent that you have to force the body to choose between healthy cells and cancer cells. This requires a long fast on small portions of juice combined with days of water fasting.

    SO true...

    I noticed that my first week here.

    Everyone with a physique that I wanted was not doing these ridiculous diets...It didn't take me more then a coupla days on here to see that the way to get the results was to craft your diet into a LIFESTYLE.

    If you can't make it a lifestyle then it's not for the people coming to the "losing fat forum" anyway...maybe some of this crazy crap might work for a veteran trying to break a plateau or something, but it's just bad advice for fat noobs.

    I mean, you can't make a lifestyle out of maple syrup and pepper, and you definitely can't make a lifestyle out of starving!

    Why are so many people even looking to this kind of thing anyway?

    Is the desperation and impatience out there really that bad....?

    I just don't get it.

    Fat people should be trying to learn to live in co-exsistance with lots of healthy food, and to learn how to do it consistently...how can you do that if you are falling for all of these diets that go ten days or whatever...

    After it's over you STILL have to learn how to do it right anyway...

    My family falls for all of these fad diets like two three times a year, and they NEVER seem to learn, and they are still all fat, and getting fatter...it's very frustrating.
