Fasting is THE BEST way for me. It nearly always resets my attitude.
I made it to 87 hours, I had a goal of 96 but due to many factors; I really needed a Keto coffee this morning so that was the end of this month’s Zornfast for me! I still will not be eating until my 1pm and 4:30 pm TMAD 20:4 though. Best wishes to all on their continuing Fasting =).
87 hours is nice! I managed 16… But I didn’t eat after 2pm, it’s something, quite unusual. I was borderline hungry at 2am (just before bedtime, I don’t wake up at night) but didn’t eat (unlike usual. I always put a tad more effort into it when it’s Zornfast that’s why I do it)… But next morning I felt odd and my SO had his lunch at 10am (it happens sometimes. breakfast was at 5am) so I ate too (it’s breakfast for me). No regrets, I needed it and strange but my bad headache (not very strong but not my normal one, it’s pressure, I want to get rid of it) disappears when I eat…
Today is TMAD, I could do only this today but it’s fine. Main thing I break my fast only when I have a very good reason for it.
I hope in a nice OMAD day tomorrow, I seriously doubt I can fast longer now. But I didn’t have my best food (proper meat, I mean, not processed or liver and not only fowl. some satiating fatty pork or red meat, that’s effective) and I will have it tomorrow so maybe I can fast on Sunday? I surely will if my body will be cooperative.
Thanks, Shinita. I will try to do my 100 hours that I prefer to do for next month. Things are just really overwhelming me right now, and my husband’s seizures at night have not been helping my sleep so I am tired all the time.
That is great that you are participating and eating good healthy Keto things when you are eating, Shinita =).
I ended mine last night. Just an hour short of 6 days, whatever hours that is. I nearly failed 3rd grade because arithmetic baffled me at the time.
Best fast and BEST BREAK-Fast I’ve done in several months.
I need to get back in the habits that got me to my goal weight of 170. I lost 160# on KETO and fasting, and maintained pretty well for 3 years. The last 4 or 5 months I’ve gotten sloppy. Time for a reset!!
That is a fantastic jump start back into Keto @goldwingnut --congratulations!
I wish you all the success to get back to where you want to be and your goal weight and continuing Keto lifestyle.
Happy you came back to join in @goldwingnut.
You know what to do, so just do it. You’ll be back in good form in no time.
@Shinita, You do you. Hope that headache gets under control.
I’m cruising long in hr. 43, so far so good. Nothing but my usual coffeew/splash of HWC. And DH has been baking so the house is full of great smells, but I have not caved in. So it is all good over here.
OH and I am doing the happy dance over here, got my appt. for COVID-19 vacccine and 1st one is Feb 1, with follow up on the 22nd. So I will be able to roam freely exactly one year after I self quarentined last March. I have only been for rides in the car and had two hair appointments with someone I totally trust so far. I am really looking forward to midMarch.
That is awesome Susan. It’s hard to fast with a system full of Cortisol.
Awesome! That is 143 hours! Welcome back.
I am so happy for you! I got mine on the 16th.
43 hours is great! Keep up the good work.
I ended my Zornfast on Friday at 56 hours.
Thanks, Susan. The encouragement on the forum makes the world of difference, for my Keto and my coping/mental state!!
Congratulations, that is great =).
I had it thru to 66 hrs. ate a meal Sat. evening then continued to make Sunday a OMAD. I am happy with that.
DH had a health issue that distracted me from posting yesterday sorry for the slow report in.
I’m so proud of all of you. I don’t know what I would have done without these forums and learning that skipping a few meals is not going to kill you.
In the end, I had 2 almost OMAD days… Better than my “performance” without Zornfast…
I plan to do better in February, January suffered from the fact it came after a somewhat carby, somewhat shocking December.
I hope that your husband is okay now @collaroygal --good job on the 66 hour fast =).
He is at the dentist office right now. Slight infection plus he go the vaccine on Friday afternoon. Double wammy, he’ll be fine once he gets the antibiotics for the gum infection.
Okay that is good, I am glad that it was not serious and he will be fine soon =).
