I'm on a water fast, it's my fifth day today. You are not allowed to eat anything at all durin the period, only water is allowed. I didn't drink water yesterday, and now today my heart is pounding, and beating very quickly. Is this normal?

  • No. Water does not have the essential nutrients required for you to live.Your electrolytes are probably low. If you are going on a liquid fast, you should do it with Gatorade, so you don't die or something.
