Water fasting? ?

I did a 3 day water fast before now I’m looking to do a 7 day fast, I was doing some research and found some Insights about taking salts with your water or drinking Pedialyte if I’m gonna be going that long. Just curious have any of you tried the salts or pedialyte and what would you prefer? and how often ? Thanks

    The salts (and Pedialyte) are there for electrolyte balance. Since you're not taking any nutrients, you need those to keep you from feeling light-headed or dizzy. I survive with just salt in my water.

    Better to use Pedialyte because it has potassium and sodium, nutrients your body needs to survive.
