I’m working on a 30-hour fast today. My first 2 were 24 hours. This will end around 4am tomorrow morning–that’s the plan, anyhow. I have food with me just in case. My blood glucose got down to 61 after my first 24-hour fast. Since then, I have cut my blood sugar medication (metformin) in half, so I’m thinking that I have less in my system now and my sugar may not go that low. In any case, my partner and I spend 2 nights apart during the week but I figured for my first 30-hour fast, it would be better to have him around just in case.
I’m doing zero calories and supplementing with magnesium and potassium. I’m also drinking salted turmeric tea, which I really love and tastes kinda like soup! So far ZERO headache. The first time I felt sort of stoned, but today other than my stomach growling, I feel very normal and go for a few hours at a time without thinking about the fact that I’m fasting. I am really encouraged by this!
Any thoughts and encouragement welcome and thanks for being here
