Can you eat during a water fast?

I've heard about 3 day, 7 day fasts and so on so, is eating permitted? I think drinking water and not eating for more than 2 days sounds dangerous.

    No. It's a FAST meaning you go WITHOUT FOOD.

    7 days is reasonable I think.

    It's very commonly known that you can last for three weeks without food, but only three days without water, because of dehydration. Your body needs water to survive, so you're living on the edge after two days.

    So yeah, not drinking water is bad, but you can survive without food for quite a while.
