I’ve been on a pattern of fasting 3-6 days, then eating 8-11 days or thereabouts. I also track my weight every day, and as you can imagine it’s showing a very clear zig-zag pattern where I’m losing a lot when I’m fasting and gaining a lot (although not nearly as much) when I’m eating. After my last fast I decided it was time to see where my weight topped out and to sort of get a baseline reading on my weight loss, so for the last 20 days I have been eating (except one sunday when I had forgotten to buy food). My weight climbed steadily with losses only on a few days until 5 days ago when it started going back down. I want a decent baseline with at least 15 measurements before I start fasting again so I’ll be eating for at least 10 more days.
My issue is I’m still not entirely sure I’ve reached my “eating weight”, or maybe I’ve passed it some time ago. The day to day variance makes it hard to judge. Those of you who have been doing less frequent fasts than me, how long does it take for your weight to normalize?
