How I Lost Weight On The Water Only Fast (Diet) – My Personal Journey and Lessons Learnt

Not another one, I hear you shout. Well, perhaps a little different.

There are lots of different types of fasts out there and I am not going to ramble on about these nor suggest any that I have not tried.

In August 2018, I thought I would experiment with the Water Only Fast and hence I can share with you my “lived experience” of what I did, what I learnt and what I achieved.

I must give credit to Dr Alan Goldhamer for his excellent YouTube Video which gave me a lot of useful information.  This is the full 80-minute talk by Dr. Goldhamer explaining how and why medically-supervised water-only fasting can be so beneficial to your health. Dr Goldhamer is a world authority on the subject and if there is anyone you should listen to on the “technical aspects“, it’s Dr and learn.

So, what exactly is Water Only Fast

The water fast “diet” is a period when a person eats no food and drinks only water.

We know that throughout history, people have undertaken fasts for spiritual or religious reasons.

There is no set time that water fasting should last for, but medical advice generally suggests anywhere from 24 hours to 3 days as the maximum time to go without food.

But, water fasting is now popular in the natural health and wellness movements, often alongside meditation…so, I thought I would experiment and in my video journal below, I share with you my experiences.


There are considerable risks if a fast is carried out for too long, or by someone whose health or age puts them at risk of damage to their body.  Water fasting will not be safe for everyone. Before you set out to do this, you should consult with your Doctor or a medical professional and also consider undertaking a fast under supervision.

Enjoy the videos…subscribe and also listen to the many podcasts on a variety of subjects.

In August 2018, I thought I would try the Water Only Fast because I wanted to rapidly lose 3Kg. It’s an “xtreme attempt” and not one for the faint-hearted.

It’s not for everyone and takes a strong willpower to succeed.
