Any advice is welcome. I am 62 hours into a 72 day fast. It started out as a 24, then 48. I’m trying to decide if I am breaking the fast today, or going for another day. I am currently weighing in at 235lbs(5’5), I started this lifestyle change at 259lbs on November 15. I started intermittent fasting and semi keto, low carb high protein high fat. I do not crave sugar or carbs anymore. i started kind of fast increasing my fasting window. Started at 12, then 14 then 16. I stayed at 16 a few days and found it quite easy to do 18, did that a few days and did 20, and accidentally found myself at 22 hours not hungry and kept going. My question is should I continue till I know I’m done or break and start another fast, or break go back to 18 or 20 hour fast.
I really need to get healthy and part of that I know I really need to lose weight. my acne has gotten better, my eczema is going any…I know these thing are most likely being helped my fasting. I don’t know if its overkill to keep going or break the fast. I’ve been reading if you are obese you can go longer, my BMI is currently 39. I’ve been reading people say multiple day fast are not good for women because of hormone levels but I know for a fact all this extra weight on me is not healthy either. I dont want to burn out, but I also want to let my body do what it’s going to do.
