I'm on a 5th day of my 7 days water only fast (TellVoat)

I&#039;ve decided to do a 7 days water-only fast. I&#039;ve done couple of 3 day fasts before so i was sure i&#039;ll be fine for the first 3 days and both times the 3rd day, i felt as amazing mentally as i have ever and physically i felt fine (altough a little less muscular strength for obvious reasons).
I need to loose a lot of weight (a lot might mean something different for everybody) and i decided that a prolonged water only fast was the best way for me to change my dietary habits, since a prolonged fast (especially 5 days +) is kind of like a reset for the whole body and especially for the digestive system. I&#039;ve been drinking way to much beer and it basically became a habitual addiction for me. My diet has been mostly healthy (rarely fast-foods and mostly natural unprocessed foods) except for beer. I exercised daily but i knew that no matter what i did, if i continue to drink beer (at least in quantities i have been) i would not be able to loose all the fat i need to and get in proper shape. I remembered that when i&#039;ve done the 3 day fast i felt completely no craving for beer (the only alcohol i drink basically) and also i knew that if i drank any alcohol during a fast it would be very dangerous for me since when fasting the liver is extremely engaged in producing ketons and alcohol would be extremely damaging to it.
I&#039;m going to break the fast in 2 days with beef bone broth only, for the first day and 2 next days broth and a couple of hard boiled eggs.
If anyone here gives a shit.
Other than loosing weight and mental &quot;boost&quot; here are some other benefits:
-reduces probability of cancer through a process called autophagy (some even say they cured cancer with it and it seems highly probabe since that&#039;s what autophagy does)
-resets hormones that work in tandem with digestive system to what you could call default settings
-reducses hunger and cravings for shitty foods (as long as you don&#039;t start eating them again)
If you&#039;re interested in the topic of fasting (intermitent and prolonged) here are some materials i found to be very useful for understanding what is going on inside the body when fasting and a lot of useful and safety tips for doing it:
Dorian Wilson: WATER FASTING: The Complete Guide (an extremely comprehensive)
Dr. Jason Fung (a guy who uses intermitent fasting to treat type 2 diabetes)
Also here&#039;s a 6 part lecture by him where he explains the epidemic of obesity, obesity itself, type 2 diabetes and alsos how fasting and low card diets can help with that. It&#039;s pretty detailed but he explains it really really well:
The Obisity Code (here&#039;s part 1, all part are on jewtube):
