Report Progress and Seek Support: Hello! Thanks for providing so much detailed and honest information about your fasting experience. It has inspired me to try fasting as well. About a year ago, I came under a lot of stress, and I started to develop unhealthy eating habits. I've been struggling with my weight gain and compulsive eating since then, and your story inspires me to remedy this with fasting.
After about 30 hours of water fasting, I started to get headaches and feel foggy-minded, so I had some carrot and orange juice (12oz). This helped to settle my headache, but I was still very thirsty and out of water, so I bought another cup (16oz) of carrot, beet, apple, ginger juice (it was quite tasty). Is it bad to drink so much juice in a short amount of time? I hope I haven't spiked my blood sugar level too much by doing this.
Also, I have some fruits in the refrigerator (apple, strawberries) that I bought before I made this decision to fast...is it alright to have a little bit of fruit during a juice fast, or will that nullify the benefits of juice fasting? (I don't have a juicer)
Thank you in advance for your support and advice. I look forward to hearing from you.

Editor's Notes: Hi Ann, Anna here. I'm glad you have an open mind towards fasting. When I speak with people regarding my fasting experience, many just think that won't work for them. You may want to check out the article The Weight Loss Battle Is Won Or Lost In Your Mind.
To answer your question, I won't drink too much juice to avoid excessive sugar intake. However eating some solid fruits such as a bananna while having fresh fruit juices to replace lunch and dinner is absolutely fine. Don't forget to drink a lot of plain water for the rest of the day.
In fact, you don't seem to be too much over weight, I don't see a need for a prolong fasting. Short term intermittent fasting may work well for you. You can gain more insights about IF in this website.
I wish you well!
