    Just wondering if anyone would like to volunteer for the May Fast 2018

    I think we sort of agreed to start it on a Sunday ( I could be wrong)

    Any takers add your name the more the merrier

    Bulk maybe you could do the honours and start the room when required......

    Happy fasting

    Edited to add @bulkbiker 's post #36. Please take note:

    "Ok just so everyone knows we're going to start the next group fast the week starting Monday 21 May (I'll be having my last meal sunday night).

    As a quick disclaimer if you feel odd and extremely hungry and you're new to this then please eat something. Its not good to over stress when fasting. Also make sure you keep hydrated and maybe have some extra salt.
    I'll start a new thread for the actual fast when I get back from the PHC conference on 21st May with a hopefully suitably witty title!

    I'll try and tag everyone who has said on this thread that thy want to join in. So if you want to join and haven;t said so yet then add names to this thread.!"

    Some do 24, some 48 and I think someone did 5 days (I did 62 or 64 hours one of the 2). I think this would also be good for someone maybe doing their first 16 hour.
