From: Mr. Polyphasic (
Subject:         Doug, can you advise on juice for breaking a fast?

Hello Mr. Graham,
First of all thanks for writing 80/10/10, it has helped me
immensely over this past year.

I developed terrible asthma a few years back after 26 years
of terrible eating and foolishly accepted the traditional
medical model approach of simply taking inhalers. I was
introduced to the concept of water fasting through one of
your youtube videos and was excited at the prospect of being
drug free again. I have completed two fasts so far (1 year
ago and 4 months ago) of 11 days and 15 days. After each
fast my symptoms were all gone and I was grateful.

Unfortunately being a new vegan I kept going back to junk
food (still vegan but definitely not the healthy kind) and
each time symptoms returned. I wrongly justified it by
thinking 'at least i'm not eating meat/dairy)

Each time I broke my fast with fresh squeezed organic orange
juice drank in small amounts throughout one day before
eating small portions of whole fruits from day two onwards.

Here is my question: In general, you recommend whole fruits
instead of juices (as this is refining out the nutrient of
fibre), does this also apply to breaking a longer fast? I
was concerned that my stomach wouldn't handle it well but
i'm also aware that juices are not ideal for me also.

The reason I'm asking is that i'm on day 3 of new fast and
whilst taking it one day at a time I intend to fast for
three to four weeks ideally so that I can once and for all
knock this asthma out of the park and then stay LFRV from
here on out.

If anyone else has any ideas/thoughts/experiences on this
issue I would love to hear from you as well.

Thanks again,

P.S. I look forward to experiencing your costa rica retreat
soon (saving up money whilst spending so much on organic
food in Sydney is challenging!)
