Welcome to CC. :) This is the Introductions forum. Your OP is better suited for the Health forum, where there are several threads on water fasting.

Also, water fasting for a month is very dangerous. The human body can't go without food for more than a few days. And drinking too much water will result in water toxicity.

Are you adding anything to your fluids? I have known people who did 30-40 day fasts, but they put small amounts of maple syrup, lemon juice, and cayenne pepper powder in the water. I did the same for a ten day fast many years ago, and had no problems not eating during that time. I hope you are successful in your fasting goals :)

My grandmother did these all the time, and she never had any problems. Sometimes she did juice fasts.

Currently I am not adding anything to my water... I will if anything irregular from fasting symptoms occur! The longest I’ve fasted is 14 days which also was last year, I didn’t use anything that entire fast. Thank You for your wishes :) faithfully with god I can do this!

I have twice fasted (water only) for 40 days.
Praying in the Holy Spirit during this time of surrender to God and overcoming stubborn sins from the past.
Powerful and delivers results.
Be purposeful with your fasting - not just health needs but seek spiritual victories that you desire from God.

23 Search me, O God, and know my heart! Try me and know my thoughts!
24 And see if there be any grievous way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting!
Psalm 139: (ESV)

Welcome to CC, Ebs24. Make sure your motivations are correct and you are relying on strength and sustaining power from the Holy Spirit. If all that is a 'go', then Godspeed.

Luke
2:37 And she [was] a widow of about fourscore and four years, which departed not from the temple, but served [God] with fastings and prayers night and day.
2:38 And she coming in that instant gave thanks likewise unto the Lord, and spake of him to all them that looked for redemption in Jerusalem.

Regarding the fast I would follow the counsel of Lady Blue. Why a 30 day fast rather than a 3 day fast? This site can indeed be a lot of fun. Glad to have you onboard with us. Welcome to CC.
