Hunger Free Fasting Plan

After a bit of trial and error, I have seemed to have come up with a fasting system that avoids the uncomfortable feeling of hunger.

Day 1 - (less than 1000 calories) - No solid food, but I drink whatever I want. This is the time for Starbucks mochas and small McDonald's vanilla shakes. A lot of home made beef broth (must be home made). Exercise a lot and drink a lot of water.

Day 2 - (less than 500 calories) - No solid food. No vanilla shakes, but squeeze in mocha's and beef broth. Exercise a lot. Really important, EXERCISE A LOT. Otherwise fasting can be a 'chore'... and drink a lot of water.

Day 3+ - (less than 60 calories) - Exercise a lot and drink a lot of water. The only calories come from beef broth. The only reason beef broth is even being consumed is that it provides a "lunch" and a "dinner" for psychological reasons.

During the water fasting part I feel I must walk at least 15k steps and 1/2 hour of weight lifting to have high energy. Otherwise I feel sluggish.

During this entire time I am not hungry. I only feel hungry after I start eating solid food.
