Water fasting weight loss is the quickest and result-guaranteed weight loss method. If you want to practice intermittent fasting to lose weight, you would need to do two days of either water fasting or juice fasting in a week.

Many people want to do fasting but fear to kick start. Don’t worry. We are not talking about prolong fasting. We are talking about short term fasting of 24 hours which is absolutely easy. However if you are new to this practice, please do manage it carefully.

I have been doing periodic water fasting in the past four years. I’m here to walk you through some basics about water fasting.

General Water Fasting Weight Loss Tips
To begin with, I recommend your doing water fasting for a full 24-hour cycle once a week.

Try it out once and the success will increase your confidence and often lead you to venture out to twice a week or even more. In my case, I have been doing it averagely three or four times a week.

Pick a day for your first 24-hour cycle of not eating any solid food. For experienced fasters like me, I can fast on any day in any activities conditions. But for beginners, please pick a day when your schedule is least packed, with the least physical activities.

Water Quantity
Try to drink 2 litres of water or more per day. When hunger strikes, drink a large glass of water. If plain water is boring, add a few drops of lime juice or lemon juice.

Water Quality
Cool water help to loss weight better than warm.

Distilled water is the best for cleansing because of its inherent, magnetic properties and ability to absorb and suspend large quantities of toxins, flushing them from the body. Spring or filtered is also fine.

My 24-Hour Water Fasting Notes
I do water fasting every now and then, and I do write supporting notes to my readers.  Below is one of them.  Hope it will also cheer up your waster fasting day.

Hi there, I'm glad to write this note to support your water fasting project. Actually I'm on water fasting today, though it is a 24-hour one. But this happens at least twice a week. Things go on as usual - work, workout...and others.

My work demand (in terms of speed and quality) as an executive assistant at a top notch executive search firm won't decrease because I'm fasting. And of course I won't stop exercising because I'm fasting. However the sun in Hong Kong is shinning severely in summer, I've therefore moved my swimming session to the evening, i.e. after work. I only had dinner after my 30-minutes daily swim.

I spent my lunch hour wandering a bit, just to exercise my legs and had my eyes relaxed. I don't and I seldom go to the pantry to do lunch hour social networking as that will make me see and smell food which I don't want to during my fasting day.

You may ask 'how can you survive on water only and deal with your hectic daily work and only eat after swimming in the evening?

Well, water fasting (sometimes juices) has been part of my life in the past four years. If you make it emerge into your life and let your body get familiar with your fasting eating habit, everything can be possible. In fact, water fasting isn't something scary.

To be honest, my longest fasting period was six days. Over the course of my fasting days, I tried my best to stay calm and avoid stress. I think you should do the same.
