Water fast coaching and how it helps:
Hello, I’m Dr. Tallis Barker. In addition to the many articles and videos here on this website, I also provide more private and personalised support as a water fasting coach.*
I’ve successfully guided hundreds of people through fasts of 3 to 40 days

Fasting by yourself can be lonely.
Some people need accountability.
Some people need a partner to keep them company through their journey.
Some people need sound advice, especially when fasting to heal health issues.
You can find all sorts of answers on internet forums – but are they right for you?
Whatever your needs, I’m here to help hold the space for your fast.
If there’s one thing I’ve learnt over the years, it’s that the emotional security provided by working with a coach makes the experience of fasting much, much easier. That security even tends to decrease the severity of detox symptoms – and when they do occur, I can help you find the most appropriate ways to relieve them.
I offer the following online services:
- (1) Full coaching (see below)
- (2) Single online consultation (see below)
(1) FULL COACHING FOR ANY LENGTH OF WATER FAST
(1) Preliminary video call (Skype, FaceTime or WhatsApp) before the beginning of the fast (@60 min.)
(2) Daily check-in video calls to discuss how you’re feeling (15-20 min. per day, every day except Sundays).
(3) Unlimited email contact every day for the full duration of the fast.
(4) Continued daily contact (video calls and email) after the fast, through the refeeding process.
(5) Access to my personal phone number in case of emergency.

HOW DOES IT ALL WORK?
Before the fast:
Once you’ve filled out the sign-up form (by clicking one of the buttons on this page), I’ll contact you in order to set up a preliminary video call. Ideally, this should be at least a week before you plan to begin your fast. That way we can talk about how best to prepare for the fast, both physically and psychologically, as well as discuss any concerns you may have (also taking into consideration any relevant medical issues, if any).
During the fast:
Once you actually begin your fast, we’ll stay in contact via daily video calls in which you can let me know how you’re doing, and I can offer suggestions to any problems you may be having: anything from detox symptoms to sleep problems to cravings for food. The simple fact is that most people do encounter difficulties while water fasting. A recent study by the National Institutes of Health (2018) showed that over 89% of people experienced some kind of adverse event during their fast, ranging from mild to severe.** Having an experienced water fasting coach can obviously help you avoid or reduce the severity of such problems! Once things are going smoothly, I can also offer tips to help you go deeper into your fast, both emotionally and spiritually.
In addition to our daily video calls, you’re free to send me unlimited emails about any issue you’d like to share. In case of emergency (which is highly unlikely!), you’ll also have my personal telephone number.
After the fast:
For many people, the refeeding process after their fast is the trickiest period: both in terms of resisting the temptation to overeat, as well as in making sure you don’t overload your digestive system. We’ll stay in contact via video calls and email until both of us are confident that you’re back on course to your everyday diet.

- A single consultation is also the place to start if you’d like full water fast coaching, but aren’t sure how long you want to fast. In this case, our video call will help you decide.
