Today beings fasting. A process that goes back very far into history, hindu’s practiced fasting, Jesus did, Buddha did, even Mohammed. I too will fast for 3 days and rinse my body of the old and begin a new cycle. If you are fasting too, drink lots of water, at least 2 liters. Make sure to stay hydrated.
One thing I won’t give up on his my hope to see Ana again. She was a casual vegetarian. I have nothing against soy products, I had some soy food while in Portugal. It tasted a lot like bread but if you get the right condiments around it it is tolerable. I wouldn’t handle it every day.
