Juice-only Fasting : Can a Skinny Person Do It?

Can a skinny person go on a juice-only fast?

Most literature out there seems to say 'yes', although I ran across a few that say 'no', especially if one has anemia or eating disorders.

For the studies that say 'yes', it is counterintuitive and surprising to read that a thin person can actually gain weight after a fast!

I have several contacts in Raw Food in the Philippines (most were overweight and one who was skinny) who have gone through juice-only fasts and came out healthier in the end. Very interesting eh? :)

I am going to a do a juice-only fast for a week beginning tomorrow. I am 5'1 1/2, 104 lbs. Skinny :) I'll let you know how it goes :)

For exercise, I will stop going to the gym and badminton courts and just take walks and do simple stretches for my back.

I know at least three other people doing the same thing and we will check in with each other daily.

Here are a few before pics:

No running...

No badminton, no gym... (sniff, sniff)

No late night socializing...

Just energy conservation, devoted to things that are Most Important.

An update soon!
