As this evening closes, I've completed a full week of fasting. At this point, the hunger has almost completely subsided. My energy has picked up quite a bit. I think this is due in part to getting over the initial slump, but I must also contribute my growing energy to adding more juice to my diet. I've added between 2 and 3 8oz. glasses of juice each day. I've picked higher end juices from Odwalla. I've noticed better mental clarity, and overall I'm feeling very good.
My fast remains open-ended with no set conclusion. I will simply stop when my willpower gives out.
The basic purpose of this fast is to recharge my self-discipline. As I see it, fasting is one of the greatest challenges in discipline that I've ever experienced. Completing the fast is an encouragement to myself that I can master my passions. Other challenges in discipline that I will face will likely pale in comparison to what I am experiencing currently.
