Day 1 of a planned 2 days of water fasting
Blood sugar 84 mg/dL

I went on vacation for two days, ate like crazy and gained the expected weight. Now it's back to the diet :)

I decided to start off with a two day 'water fast'.

I haven’t ‘water fasted’ in many months. This is different than my usual ‘no solid food’ fasting that consists of 1,000 calories in protein drinks.

After my recent analysis of the past three months I came to the conclusion that consuming so many protein drinks provides ‘weight maintenance’ but not much ‘weight loss’, so, I decided to cut back on the protein drinks. However, my water fast for the next two days is based on a desire for a ‘spiritual cleansing’ rather than weight loss.

😎 Life is Good! Have a great day everyone!
177.0 lb Lost so far: 30.0 lb.    Still to go: 13.0 lb.    Diet followed poorly.

Yes, I have read that protein not used by the body for nutritional needs will actually also store as fat

You've always known that your protein drinks "stick" though... I thought it was the cream mostly though for you.

If you're lifting, you'll use the excess protein for muscular repair since you're tearing it down. With running, protein might not be the best choice for an energy source though. Most runners use carbs or fats for fuel (and I know how you feel about carbs 😜).

Hope you are enjoying your water fast. I never want to start one but always feel good when I do 🧘‍♀️
