Fasting on the Water Day 21: Results and Reviews

Daily weight loss stabilizes up to 500 g per day. Oddly enough, but all the natural secretions will be preserved and even intensified, for example, sweating. Excreted substances will acquire a harsh acetone odor. It means that toxins have gone from the body.

Manifestations of chronic pathologies will become more noticeable. That is how it should be. Neither today or tomorrow will come the turning point when the body begins to adapt to new conditions.
- Then the process will go more fun. You feel the physical lightness, good spirits. Continue to lose weight by 100-200 g per day.
