First Day of 40 Day Fast – Water Only Fasting – 1st of 3 Forty Day Fasts – YouTube.
When I found the pictures of this particular woman on wikipedia, I wanted to know what medical condition would require not one, not two, but three forty day water fasts to accomplish. I also wanted to know which doctor put her on this extreme regime.
Turns out, she did it to herself. Which brings up a very big question. What kind of God would require that she starve herself for 120 days? I don’t recall that requirement anywhere in any bible I’ve ever read.
I have patients who have done this to themselves. But at least they acknowledged they had an eating disorder and sought help.

Thanks! I think everyone should see this particular journey and not go down it.
you are a total asshole. Olivia cohen is a heroine and deserves recognition for her extraordinary work. I hate you so much.
As a fellow faster, I’d say she has overdone it to the point of losing focus. I’m sorry that we disagree, but I neither call you names nor do I hate you at all. I hope you are maintaining medical oversight on your fasting.
Olivia Cohen is an irresponsible lunatic.
I wish it ended there. I have had a number of people write to me that they were inspired by her model. On the west coast there are last-ditch medical clinics that do fast people with life-threatening blood sugar and blood pressure levels that have responded to nothing else. But those fasts are done with round-the-clock medical supervision and the person is restarted on food as soon as they can.
