Day 2 of a planned 2 days of ‘water’ fasting

Got through day 1 of water fasting. Only coffee and green tea. My stomach was still full of food digesting, and I had a massively busy day at work, so it was not hard-at-all.

Today, a different story. I won’t be ‘hungry’, because for me, when I wake up, I am never hungry until ‘after’ I eat (when I have falling blood sugar), but, I won’t feel ‘full’.

It is ‘not feeling full’ that I have to ‘grind it out’ for the day.

I am not surprised I gained a pound yesterday even though I was fasting. Also, over the last 7 days I have a 2,000 calorie deficit.

The problem is I took in over 600 carbs over the weekend. Other people can burn that much glucose, I know from experience I can’t. This is why I knew that to balance out my weekend excess, I needed to fast.

😎 Life is Good! Have a great day everyone!

@rgaDawg - Thanks! I thought today was going to be harder, but so far I feel no hunger or low energy. From past experience I know I will hit a 'crash' that will last 2-3 hours and after that I will be ok.

Adef- when you say 600 is that grams or calories?

I get like that, too - I'm okay until I start eating and then I want to eat for the entire rest of the day. Good job getting a handle on what works for you :)
