I don't but done of my sister's do. What made you want to start?
Mostly to cleanse my system. I've only done it 3 days before. I will try to do more this time, but my mood changes. Day 2 felt pretty good, but after that I felt bad so I stopped. I want to for a week though.

I will drink water and almond milk.

People say after a certain point you start to feel good again.

Definitely don't jump into a week since you just started. Do the 3 days for a while first, then your body will tell you when it's ok for you to do a week. It's a good cleansing method, but there are easier ways of cleansing your system as well.
Like what? And the second date, I felt really alert, but zoned out at the same time. And if that's what it feels like later I want that.

It's the best thing to do, especially if you need something out of life. I always fast in the beginning of the year. This year I did the Daniel Fast, which is a 3 week fast where you can only eat, legumes, fruits, nuts, grains, and vegetables it was difficult, but really worth it. At first people thought something was wrong because I was losing weight and I was already small not too skinny, but small. During that time I had a joy that was rubbing off on everyone, people always told me I was glowing. Even after it, blessings kept coming my way, favoritism with my professors, lead parts in dances and plays, amazing friends, and just so much love even when I didn't deserve it. I thought because I was over-involved in school my grades would drop, like many of my friends, but I ended with a 3.5 every one was jealous, but that was nobody, but god. I also did lent the year before that and again many blessings. I would recommend fasting to anyone who desires to have a more healthy, prosperous, enjoyable life.
