Things went super well fasting wise But I overate lately and had much carbs too (I had a recipe to perfect to avoid very bad things at certain holidays) so no wonder it was easier than usual Still. I needed the mental preparation
I passed the 24 hour mark easily. I am not fully satiated anymore and I just started to feel the usual dizzy “need for fuel” signs so I am prepared to eat a small, very fatty meal (to have a low-cal OMAD at least) but we will see. I feel pretty well apart from this borderline dizziness. Even my headache went away.
It’s so very enjoyable to fast when I feel like this I love food but I love fasting too. I just can’t do it for very long and sometimes the temptation to eat is bigger than the temptation to fast. I usually do whatever is easiest. It’s still the fasting now. Zero effort this far.
I had a water fast for the first 20 hours, then I felt miserable with my headache since several hours and had coffee and tea. I never should try too hard, that doesn’t work with my personality. And I have priorities. Quitting coffee is a nice plan and I will go back to it but if I need to indulge, I drink coffee. Or tea but it’s coffee when I feel a tad miserable due to a headache. I started drinking it at 3pm, it’s not that bad and headache is a valid excuse to me. It doesn’t happen so often. (I drink coffee without a good reason then. I want to get rid of that.)
