Day 1 of 10 Day Fast from kaleidoscopeiiis's log

Day 1

Weight: 153.4 lbs

Good morning! Today is Day 1 of my 10 Day Fast (which is also going on as a Group Fast, so join us if you want to). I somehow gained back all of the weight from my 4-day fast last week, plus 1 lb, just from 3 days of normal eating. I was at 149.2 yesterday, so just from yesterday to today, I somehow gained 4 lbs on the scale. My stats from last week were:

Starting Weight (Sep. 19): 152.4 lbs

Ending Weight (Sep. 22): 145.6

I did have a lot of carbs and some alcohol Saturday and Sunday, so maybe that explains the re-gain, but still it always sucks when the number on the scale goes in the wrong direction. I already hit the gym this morning, and did 10 minutes of moderate intensity on the elliptical, and did some light weight lifting (legs day). I am going to do resistance training on most days during this fast to maintain muscle mass. I will also be taking the following supplements:

- multi vitamin

- magnesium

- potassium

- veggie broth (for sodium)

- biotin (not in my multi, and don't want to lose hair...)

Glycine (an animo acid, needed for collagen production--trying to promote skin elasticity)

- BCAAs after lifting weights for muscle repair


So yeah, that's a lot, but in my experience, this is what keeps me feeling good on an EF. I am also going to be trying to drink 100 ounces of liquid per day. Feeling happy to be fasting again, especially since this weekend was fun and I ate good food, but I feel like the more I lose weight, the more easily and more quickly I put it back on.

I'm willing to bet it was the carbs and drinks, and you'll lose that water weight easily enough! It sounds like you really have EF down to a science :D
