I’m on the fence about doing a fat fast. I’ve been finding it more and more difficult to fast for more than a couple days. I don’t know if it’s physical or psychological. I’ve been wondering if my body fat is too low to successfully complete a water/tea only fast. I have about 33 pounds of body fat and my BMR is estimated to be about 1,100 (though I doubt that’s very accurate; I’m fairly sedentary other than walking the dogs, a little resistance training here and there and an occasional tennis game - plus, I’ve maintained my weight on an average of 1550 cals a day doing very little exercise).
Before I dive into a fat fast, I’d like to hear about your n=1 experiments with fat fasting:
- How long was your fast?
- Did you lose body fat during your fast? (My goal is loss of body fat, not necessarily body weight)
- What did you eat?
- How many times have you done it?
Any information you can give me will be helpful so I can decide whether to try it.
