What are the effects of a 10 day fast with only consuming water?
As part of a spiritual ceremony, I plan to partake in a 10 fast. For those 10 days I plan on only consuming water. I was just wondering as to the health effects that this would cause. Rest assure I am not doing this to lose weight. This will not lead to any lifetime illnesses or anything, right?

Thanks for the help!

Dear "aconfusedman," fasting for ten days could be life-threatening.  While brief periods of fasting may be safe, fasting for ten days is not recommended.  I recommend seeking spirituality in conjunction with a healthy diet!
