Hey friends! Thanks for all the kind birthday wishes! I had a super birthday weekend culminating in a (blurred for fasting folks) giant fatty rib eye slathered in Roquefort cream with grilled asparagus After I calculated my macros from that I realized it was a perfect fatty feast from which to launch a fast! So I fasted Monday, Tuesday, and I’m still fasted today! This is my longest so far. Previously I made it to 47 hours before stopping due to period related migraine. I read everything anyone writes about their specific fasting experiences so I can understand what might or might not happen and it’s been SO helpful! I have been using heavy cream in my morning coffee so it’s not a strict fast, but I’ve been using lots of pink salt and water all throughout the day. I’ve had almost no hunger even when I fixed my husband something for dinner last night! Astonishing. And no headache. Maybe just a little bit of blood pressure related light headedness when standing up too fast. I haven’t had too many psychological struggles with missing food either though it will be nice to eat again eventually lol. I was a bit nervous because pre-keto I’ve always felt nausea when drinking water on an empty stomach but that hasn’t been an issue while fasting, I’ve no idea why.
I’m not fasting for weightloss per-se though I’ve probably got 25 more pounds to go. I did want to reset my set point if needed, improve insulin sensitivity, and maybe get some autophagy working on this flabby skin suit I seem to be wearing nowadays
Anyway, hope everyone is well, love checking in here to hear your struggles and triumphs. Everyone sharing their experiences makes this a wonderful place!
