Day 5 of a planned 5 days of ‘no solid food’ fasting
Blood sugar 109 mg/dL

Yesterday I 🏃🏾‍♂️ ran 3 miles in the morning, 🚶🏾‍♂️ walked for an hour at lunch, and 🏋🏾‍♂️ worked out at the gym.

I plan to break my ‘no solid food fast’ tonight with a 🍕Quest Supreme Pizza (7 net carbs). This stuff has 17grams of fiber so it is basically cardboard with pizza toppings. However, it doesn’t taste bad, and allows me to have our “Friday Pizza Night” without any guilt. 9 times out of ten I lose weight the day after eating it.

My goal this weekend is to Not-Gain-Fat. Yes, I will gain ‘water weight’ because I will invariably restore my glycogen levels when I eat (my body must retain water to bind the glycogen in my skeletal muscle cells).

What I want to do differently this weekend is to minimize my carbs and protein (because both can be converted to glucose and then to glycogen). The excess gets stored as fat. Now, how I do that is the challenge…

I hate fasting on the weekends, because the ‘mental break’ of eating carbs on the weekend is what has helped me stick to my program for nearly a year. However, we have a late night party planned for Saturday, and the only way I can get through, without ending up ‘binging’ on food, is to ‘not eat’. So Saturday I will ‘no solid food’ fast.

Sunday, I will have one day of ‘letting lose’ 😊

😎 Life is Good! Have a great day everyone!

Have you tried an every other day fasting?

@srossca - Yeah I tried "every other day fasting". My problem with it is that I get 'big drops' when I 3+ day fast. I'm always looking for 'big drops' Haha! However, I DO believe it would work for others, especially for 'weight maintenance'. - - My main 'issue' is that 'fasting' is 'mentally exhausting' for me. That's why I RARELY "normal fast". I'm mean on my 'no solid food fasting' I am usually taking in 800 calories! What the heck is that! You call that a 'fast'?? Haha!

Adef, others call it up day / down day eating. Or Fat Fasting.

@gz9gjg - I will eventually hit a point where I need to do 'weight maintenance' and that may be something for me to try. I have been unable to lose weight when I tried it because I would 'binge' really bad.

Adef, I meant, that's what others call your eating pattern. Eat low cal 2 - 3 days, then a higher cal day, then back to low. Plus your protein shake is made w/ cream, yes? So that's why I called it a Fat Fast.
