I used to be a Mormon so from ages 18-25ish I did a dry fast for 24 hours once a month. I tolerated it fine, but I was a lot younger then.
Here I am at age 56 and I am anxious about this. I have a lot of food anxiety from a half century of dieting (my mother put me on my first diet when I was 3yo) and have had many experiences when I restricted food on one day and binged the next.
I have been doing the keto thing for about a month steadily. Even though I’m only 12 hours into this fast, I have hunger pangs (I woke up 4 hours ago and usually would have eaten about 400 calories already) and a headache… but I’ve had a headache for a few days since I almost entirely stopped eating sweetened foods, so it may not be due to the fast yet.
Just looking for a little encouragement and support as I try to make it through to tomorrow morning! Thanks
