Day 2 of a planned 2 days of water fasting
Blood sugar 102 mg/dL

First day of fasting was easy. I woke up and drank a 5-hour energy drink rather than my 300 calorie “Protein Coffee”. I then went on a 🏃🏾 3 mile run before work. This meant that I did not experience any ‘drop’ in blood sugar through the day. This meant I did not experience any hunger.

I also did my normal 30 minute walk at lunch, and had 4 cups of Decaf Green Tea with a TON of granulated Splenda during the day.

Apparently my body feels that ‘no solid food’ fasting is practically the same as 🥛 ‘water fasting’. During the week, my body is used to ‘not eating’. It is also used to ‘no carbs’. What it is not getting is ‘Fat’ and ‘Protein’, but, there must not be a ‘switch’ for it to use to ‘complain’ so, I just feel like “everything is fine”.

I am careful to take plenty of Hi-Lyte Electrolyte Concentrate in the morning and the afternoon. I am actually not drinking a lot of 🌊 water (it would dilute the Electrolyte Concentrate). Ironically a ‘water fast’ does not mean I ‘eat water’, it means I only ‘consume water’. But, water doesn’t provide much, and I actually don’t need a lot of it. What I *do* need is Electrolytes. I normally get them from food. If I am not eating, I need to use a concentrate.

I will ‘water fast’ today, but, I go to the 🏋🏾 Gym on Thursday so I plan to go back to the 🥛 Protein Shakes. I should be able to do a decent workout if I pound 1200 calories in Protein and Heavy Cream. It may slow my 2-3 pound a day weight loss, but, lifting on 3 days of water fasting is a waste of time, I would have *nothing* to bring to the 💪🏾 workout.

I plan to break the fast on Friday and eat normally on the weekend.

😎 Life is Good! Have a great day everyone!

@Keilin_4, @CrashtestDawnie - Thanks! Decided to have a Protein shake tonight. I'm not hungry at all, just tired of not consuming anything but water :)

I know that water fasting or dry fasting is faster than protein shakes all day "fasting "

@Keilin_4 - I agree a water fast is faster, but it always seems to tire me out 'mentally'. I may do just 1 day next week... but only if I'm 'feeling up to it'.
