I’ve lost 7.8 kilograms, which is 17.2 pounds!
Has it been hard? Not so much. Because the fasts are intermittent, there are plenty of days where I eat normally, and can eat pretty much whatever I like.
Started fasting: 20 April Today's date: 8 May Weight lost: 7.8 kgs / 17.2 pounds BMI: Was 33.2 currently 30.8 Days fasted during this period: 11 days
HOW WERE THE FASTS STRUCTURED?
My fasts during this period were all between 1-4 days. While fasting, I drank LOTS of water with a little lemon juice added for flavour, but ate no food. I also drank a sugar-free electrolyte drink when I felt I needed to.
When not fasting, I ate normally, but tended to avoid carbs because that’s just how I eat. I’m not much of an exerciser, and didn’t leave the house much, but did get some walking in and lifted a few weights but not much else.
HAS THIS BEEN A POSITIVE EXPERIENCE?
Absolutely. I’m right at the start of my journey, and looking forward to more fasting to come. When I fast I feel healthier, clearer-minded and just “more myself” (I can’t explain it any better than that).
More to the point, fasting feels natural. Once you get over the big mental hurdle of believing we need to eat 3 meals a day every day, you’ve opened the door to a wider, healthier world.
I’m looking forward to continuing my journey.
