28 Days of Survival Food: Day 22

Quite a few days have passed since I last wrote. Overall I'm doing OK, though I've been pretty spacey and slow with the thought processing recently. My energy level is pretty good though, and my limbs haven't ached since day 4.

Day 4 was the last day of the complete fast. I broke the fast with a ripe banana around ... more »
