I am in it not for weight loss but for autoimmune stuff. And while it makes a lot of things better, it doesn’t seem to solve some issues completely for me (after about 6 months). I am not done experimenting.
For reasons I will go into when I am done with my experiments (not yet), I want to lose some kilos temporarily. Now, I already have a healthy weight and doing OMAD or 2MAD I can keep my weight steady (doesn’t seem to make a difference). When I try to go for 48 hours without food, I just get cold. Which is normal. Sometimes hunger comes up and then it goes again. No problem.
But when I reintroduce food, I can’t eat much of it and I get heartburn for days. Apparently my stomach forgets how to produce acid. Since from an evolutionary perspective not having anything to eat for 48 hours occurred frequently, I don’t get what’s wrong here.
Any ideas how I can handle that? Currently I am trying OMAD and eating less calories every second day. But this is going really slow.
