I've been doing 20:4 and 16:8 for the past 2.5 weeks, and am working my way up to longer fasts. This is all pretty new to me, and so I'm definitely here to learn and keep momentum going. I used to get hungry and "punchy" often (confused, irratible, irrational) and eat often, actually overeat often. One thing I truly don't miss is feeling the overwhelming *need* (however real or not it may be) to eat, constantly. <br />
This still new experience has been incredibly transformative already, my mind feels so much clearer - it's astounding. I don't feel cravings (sugar especially, but also those stupid particular cravings for one kind of junky meal that isn't true hunger). I've lost about 10 lbs too (started 100lbs over weight, so have it to lose). No one I know irl is doing anything like this, so I'm really excited about this group for accountability and maintaining and motivating and inspiration and support etc.

Each week I'm fasting from Sunday after supper (so from about 8/9pm) to Tuesday supper (about 6pm). 

It's very manageable. So far I haven't hit the headache stage or the ketosis stage, since that usually takes me at least three days.

I'm also skipping breakfasts the rest of the week, and Wed/Thurs lunches where possible. If I do get lunch, it's salad or sashimi.

So today is day 1 of my mostly water fast. Today's unlimited coffee day, and on day 2 it becomes water-only. I'm pro-enema while water fasting, and I'll be using these too as per need.

My aim is to go a minimum of 7 days, but ideally I'd like to hit that 40-60 day mark. Not going to stress is though, aiming for 7 days and then taking it on a day per day basis.

Goals: letting my body reset in the hopes it deals better with PCOS symptoms, weight loss, blood glucose and pressure need to go down into normal range. Hopefully, by the end of the fast I'll be able to drop the bp meds I'm on.

Things I'm taking: birth control pill, blood pressure meds, vitamin D. I'll be dropping the iron during the fast since it requires food for digestion.

Starting stats:
Weight - 147kg
Fasting glucose - 122
Blood pressure (I'm on meds) - 140/92
Heart rate - 90

I'll add measurements tomorrow.

Starting tonight at 12 midnight.

Day 1:

Going to sleep and then work. Wish me luck :)


So far so good. Had a few food craving but nothing too crazy. I keep thinking about this berry bowl place next to my job and how nice it would be to eat an acai berry bowl. Lol.

Ah well. Onward we go :)
