To make a long story short… I’ve done keto on and off for probably 5-6 years for now whit various success/setbacks.
Last year, I lost my way again. Gained all the weight back. (Damn you Chocolate chip mint ice cream)
I’m back on keto for the past ~ 3 month, unfortunately I have not lost any weight beside the initial 4-6lb since starting keto again.
So… to get things moving again, I decided to try an extended fast. Right now I’m in day two of my fasting journey.
I do Water /coffee fast, as I really don’t want to have coffee withdrawal headaches while fasting.
Day one I had two coffees whit cream, but now I just switched to black coffee, let’s see how it goes…
I don’t have concrete plan on how long I want to go but my previous record was 5 days, where my tennis elbow magically disappeared. I would like to push past that if possible.
Here are my observations.
No real hunger as of now, except the occasional “I feel like eating something” feeling.
Generally feeling good, more energy etc.
Working during fasting really helps, I’m dreading the weekend.
Mental clarity, this is a strange one. I feel like just as many people reporting it, heightened awareness, mental clarity, but whit a twist. Let me explain. I have the feeling that my head is lighter but it feels like there is a pressure inside my skull. I don’t know if it makes any sense but it feels like a balloon inflating in my head, very strange feeling. Another thing is, my mind feels much clearer but I have the attention span of a goldfish. I cant really focus on anything for extended periods, and I feel jittery. I’m going to start some slow exercise and see if it will help. I have read many peoples fasting experiences but never really heard someone describing what I’m experiencing. Any thoughts?
Starting weight is 107kg.
I wish I had @Karim_Wassef dedication to record keeping but I don’t.
