I actually have done this twice. First in my early 20′s for cleansing and the second time about 5 years ago. The real trick is to get yourself off of the fast slowly. Think about what you want to eat and then think about what is good for you to eat and there will be crossover.
I’d actually recommend cutting the fast shorter than two weeks and ween yourself back onto food carefully. By doing that you are still exerting immense self control and you’re teaching yourself to enjoy healthy foods. Trust me you’ll enjoy any food after less than a week. It’s really quite an amazing thing to do, you’ll know what I mean. It does things with your mind and gives you a sense of control over the world that is yours. I hope you don’t mind the unsolicited advice…
I wish you luck and I’ll be reading.
Thanks for the advice, Jim.
At this point, I’m thinking two weeks is a little ambitious. Actually, two days seems ambitious right now.
Kind of a bitch that the things are best for you are so unpleasant, isn’t it?
Oh honey, I was laughing my ass off while reading this!! Poor baby! you’ll do fine i’m sure~in the meantime the rest of us will be mightily entertained!
Keep it up, don’t worry about being strong. I find that challenges like the one you’re choosing to endure show you your weakness more than strength. Not to say you should succumb to your weakness. The good thing is your weakness is yours and you know yourself better for it.
Yes, the most difficult things in life are the ones that test us most but after which there’s a private pride of having endured. Keep it up. I love the blog, you should think about being a writer. You have a natural flow of thought and really are funny.
Keep going… oh yeah it does get much easier after three days or so…

Recently I have fallen into a slump. I sit on my fallen love-seat because my house does not have room for a sofa, and I think, What Would Katie Say? [enter Nylon Bracelet Here]
I have fallen into the depths of alchoholism. Now, in my attempts to sober up, to say, tonight i Will ONLY have six Beers, and then finish the last of the liquor bottles i have from here and there, i wonder what would Katie think?!
I am sad. I have been for along time. i smoke my cigarettes with my windows open or closed depending on the season, and I think, why on earth would I ever go back to the alumni event at my fraternity
life is hard. I realize this. at this moment, alexis meade is making [her] way. i am gay, though i do not idenitify as such.
I have gained fifteen pounds since march, and lve watching urine flow thorough my penis.
