    Why? What are the benefits supposed to be?

    Seems like a bit of a waste of good fruit, vegetables and herbs to me! It would do you far more good to use those ingredients in your meals than infuse water with them.

    By the way, Cider Vinegar is not going to help with anything regarding health or weight loss or ‘detoxing’, ‘cleansing’ or any such thing that you’ve read on the internet. It is great as part of a salad dressing or marinade though!

    For what purpose are you doing this?

    There’s no reason for water fasts other than for medical tests or religious purposes.

    Infused water is great if you are having trouble drinking plain water. Except vinegar. That has no benefit and tastes awful, except on a salad.

    the last water fast I did was for a colonoscopy procedure. and that is the only time I would do it again!

    In addition to what's already be said, I can't imagine you'll get any flavor out of whole, non mashed or macerated, blueberries in water. Also what's the point in the watermelon in water. Just eat watermelon - sure it defeats the "purpose" of a water fast (whatever that purpose is), but this is watermelon we're talking about. It's like a vehicle for water.

    Enjoy! Sometimes I throw some strawberries and lemons in my water to switch it up or a little Apple cider vinegar with lemon. It does help when your getting bored.

    A water fast would tank my energy levels, not allow me to work out and make me cranky! No thanks.

    But your bottles of water and fruit and very pretty.
