My goal is to consume nothing besides water for the next 7-14 days. I doubt I will have to end my fast before day 7 but I can't say right now if I'll be able to or want to make it 10 days or 14 days.
I've had a desire to complete a 30-day fast for a while but unfortunately, even though I have the time atm, my body is already relatively lean, I don't think it'd be wise to do this, especially without direct supervision.
My motives for this fast; well, fasting for me is always quite an experience, so I expect good things.
I just want to take this time (1-2wks from the fast and the subsequent 3-4 weeks when I'll be refeeding) to meditate over my life and some things that I'll go through next year.
I want to detach myself from everything that's unecessary, realise how egoistic and egocentered I am. Become closer to God and be grateful for everything I have.
Fasting forces you to gain a different perspective in life, when you abstain from the superficial things, you are left with only yourself.
And there's the more obvious reason, cleanse my body, and hopefully start the new year fresh, not only in the mind but also in the body.
