    I've met one person to go through extreme fasts like that for non-religious reasons. Once a year he'll go completely without food or water for a certain amount of time. I can't remember exactly how long but he described symptoms towards the end of the fast such as an inability to focus his eyes and his tongue discolors. I guess the vision thing is because the eyes lost so much moisture due to dehydration that they aren't shaped correctly anymore.

    He says he feels renewed body and spirit after coming off a fast like that.

    Personally, I think he's a kook.

    It's just water weight lol

    But yeah. I dont go 24hrs without fluid. I have this fear of being dehydrated.. I actually gotta get it under control again. It's usually towards the end of my fast, is when I chug the most water.
    Well, to be fair...

    It's All For The 'Gram

    I started fasting for 22-24 hrs once every week. Mostly for the cancer preventative benefits but Id never deprive fluids. Nothing is beneficial about dehydration

    I have done some drastic water cuts to make weight in Powerlifting. The last couple years i just weigh in and compete at what i weigh.
    I used to only cut my water about 10 hours before weigh in and 5-6 hours of that i was asleep on my cpap. I could rip off 14-15 pounds in 10 hours, make weight, then weigh in and be 16 pounds up by competition time. I believe this is an old college wrestler mentality that has stuck with me.
