adefwebserver's Journal, 12 May 2018

Had my expected weight gain from vacation. Good thing I only do this once a year. My real problem was staying up past my normal bedtime. I consumed 50% of all calories after 9:00pm and I normally go to bed at 9:00pm.

Anyway, I plan to do a 5 day liquid only fast from Monday-Friday. I then want to do a 14 day fast the following week.
200.0 lb Lost so far: 7.0 lb.    Still to go: 36.0 lb.    Diet followed poorly.

#FutureGoals You are my fasting role model. I'm still only able to do 24-36 hours at a time. Made it to 46 hrs once. Anywho, hope you enjoyed your downtime. Welcome back to the grind!

@MillaLite - It was to hard t stick to OMAD when our large group of friends was on a 7:00am-2:00am "party" schedule. So I found myself eating French Fries at midnight because my choice was to either sleep or eat. Once my body gets on that high-low blood sugar roller coaster I'm done :( even while I was eating basically out of control I missed fasting because I felt better. But, it is only the 3rd day+ of water only that I hit that zone of no hunger and max energy. So my planned 5 day fast (liquid only for 2 days then water only for 2 1/2 days) is only to get myself ready for a longer one. Even when I hit my goal weight, I plan to still do 5 day fasts regularly.

Yeah, I know what you mean about the blood sugar high/low rollercoaster. Once you feed the beast (with junk especially), the beast keeps growing!! I should try your method, liquid for a few days allowing for some broth, teas & coffee. Then switch to water only after all food is processed out of my system. I can do omad pretty well for multiple days. But I'm sure that one meal takes longer than a day to work itself thru the system. So I should figure on probably 48 hours of liquid while digesting past solids.

There's a typo. Was supposed to say "the beast keeps growling!" But growing also works in that sentence, lol.

@MillaLite - You are my inspiration for consistency :) You have had Incredible progress since February! But yeah, going liquid only helps me get my calories down and to get used to not eating solid food. My blood sugar is still high. My "true Fast" only starts the morning of water only. So this coming week that is planned to be only 2 1/2 days. Now, honestly there is no reason I could not go 20+ days (I have 25+ pounds of fat to lose). I only want to break it up because my wife and I have social events around eating on the weekends. I know you may have already seen this, but this is my "Fasting Bible": Fuel Metabolism in Prolonged Fasting – What Happens when You Stop Eating

Thank you for the kind words & the web link. I wasn't familiar with this specific book & author. Although the information presented was not new to me, the simplification of the process is, thanks!
