Can the body draw Potassium from internal reserves to replenish losses after sweating when on a water fast?

I started a 2 week water fast with a jog up a mountain. I lost a lot of sweat, and now I'm concerned that I don't have enough potassium to go 2 weeks without issue.

Is there enough stored potassium to cover one night's sweat , factoring 14 days without food?

iv done long fasts before, but rested.

That was a horrible idea. Eat a banana, man.

Wow! How do you get your electrolyte minerals and keep them in balance during such a fast?

It's a quite a common practice in longevity and ON diet circles, people do much longer fasts on a regular basis. I did a 10 day fast back in march, felt great after.

A two-week fast with nothing but water?! Are you serious?
