I gained back most of what I lost on my four day water fast last week. But the welcome effect is that my high blood pressure seems to have reset to a much lower level. I suspended my BP med to keep from going too low. I've settled now for a week at a lower level than I ever achieved with the meds. Definitely an non-scale victory!

I think I've read that many women find that either IF or a day fast is most effective. I think they recommend 36-48 hours over at the Jason Fung centre. So better to do shorter and more fasts than a long one maybe. But congratulation on you BP. I guess you have to monitor is very closely?

What you also did is create new stem cells when you began to eat again! Congrats.

Great result in the BP department. Improving health is the name of the game, ultimately.
