Hello @irishred, @Helewisa and everyone. I am back to fasting today, after waking up with a 5 lb weight gain and a bg of 214. I had been waffling between starting today or tomorrow, but today it is. I will be busy this morning with a meeting for work and taking my daughter to get her splint replaced with a real cast, running kids to performance camp this afternoon, and playing organ for church tonight, so it should be a relatively quick day. I plan to fast until Friday around 8 PM (that’s about the time I finished eating yesterday, so count that as the start of the fast). That gives me a little time to recover before I have to be anywhere Saturday afternoon. Sunday we have a birthday party here, and I have a doctor appointment Tuesday.
I was thinking it would be best to have a few days off of fasting before that doctor appointment. Does anyone know how many “eating days” there should be before having blood tests done so as not to throw off the cholesterol count etc.?
