Day 10 of the fast and since yesterday I have felt crazy thirsty. My tongue just tastes dry, no matter how much I drink. But not necessarily actually thirsty. Just a very dry tongue. What's this about then?!?! Anyone any ideas? How to fix it? Drinking like a fish... green tea, water, watered down juice, coffee. Nithing seems to quench it.

Getting skinny or die trying.

This happened to me. I needed something besides water/tea in my system. I drank a little bit of powerade. A tiny amount.
