Rowanfair's Journal, 22 February 2013

Second day of fat fast accomplished. 178.9 but I'm guessing with only a 3 lb loss in two days is water that I'll gain it back. My descending colon is still cramping and my intention is wavering. But I went to a reception for the opening of an exhibit last night and I drank sparkling water instead of champagne and ate one small goat cheese filled mushroom cap. I was well within 1000 calories and it was 91% fat for the day. I am dying to go have the low carb plate at the local diner for lunch (salmon, spinach, asparagus) instead of more cheese and nuts but I will try to hang on. I'm about 40 on the ketostix.

You go girl! One more day, you can do it. Once you set your mind to something never look back.

Thanks, Sunkeeper! I really appreciate the encouragement. Just logging my breakfast brie I saw collards as a possible choice and something inside me went "GREENS!!!!". Man, I will be glad when I am back on real food.

You are doing really well. I did the fat fast for 10 days, about a month ago. And I remember being amazed that I was craving vegetables. One word of advice, that you can either take or ignore at will, when you do reintroduce vegetables, do it slowly to minimize the potential weight gain. I only put a pound back on - but it did reset my metabolism and I'm now losing at a steady and regular pace.

Wow, 10 days! I thought it was a 3-5 day thing and got unsafe thereafter. I hope the reset works for me though. I will be careful with re-entry though.
