I decided to have tea instead of coffee, no cream and sugar, both mornings. So I don't have a caffeine headache withdrawal. I also drank 3 cups of Yogi fasting tea my first day and will do the same today. I had a two-hour meeting to attend so I drank half a cup of tart cherry juice before I went which improved my energy. The fasting tea helped as well. After I passed the 24 hour mark I was no longer hungry and my mind cleared.
I still have a clearer mind. It has given me a much greater awareness of how my food habits, eating habits had deteriorated in the last 2 years. I also became more grateful for the abundance of food in my home and community and the easy access to it, while so many in the world go to bed hungry and don't know when they're going to eat again.

Also, it should be noted that I didn't flood my body with a ton of junk food. I too had the same issue with the sleep as well! I could not sleep! My whole body felt like it had a restless leg syndrome moment. I finally fell asleep around 2 only to be awoken at 3ish. It finally relaxed around 6 am! I've since fasted a week's worth of times and the only thing that continues is my heart beating but, I've had it checked and everything is just fine and my Dr.

I like to do a long fast day once every year to detox, break out of bad eating habits, spiritual reasons, mental clarity, you name it. The one thing that I've learned from fasting is you should drastically tone down with exercise. I mean, little to none. Maybe a walk. Emphasis on "maybe". Exercise, on top of the fast, completely depletes your energy. You have to gradually allow your body to 1 start making ketones, and 2 get used to using ketones for energy.

You can drink plenty of water while on a fast. The point of your fast is to cleanse your body. Your body uses glucose to burn for energy. When no food is present and there is no glucose to burn, your body goes into survival mode and burns the stored fat that we carry around. Doing this puts your body into ketosis. The ketogenic diet is a popular, effective way to lose weight and improve health. When followed correctly, this low-carb, high-fat diet will raise blood ketone levels. On a ketogenic diet, your body undergoes many biological adaptions, including a reduction in insulin and increased fat breakdown.
When this happens, your liver starts producing large amounts of ketones to supply energy for your brain. I feel great thus far. I just remind myself to keep pounding water. I'm not sure if I could do a 60 hour fast. This is my first time doing a fast. You must start slow and work your way up.

I was the smallest kid since middle school weight : 20kg to 25kg untill high school weight : 35kg to 38kg but when I first went to college 1st up to 2nd semester I ate a lot of stuff because I needed energy to keep me up doing this and that so my weight stayed at 40kg or 88lbs.

I weigh lbs and I'm only 5'3" but where I have a low metabolism I find I have to be extremely strict with my diet, but then I crave sugar and go on a binge for a day or two Then I struggle to lose it over weeks with A LOT of exercise and healthy eating, then I crave sugar again and so the cycle repeats itself.
It's exhausting. Every day my life is consumed by thoughts of food one way or another. And then guilt when I give in and eat sugary foods. Thought a fast every Sunday might equal out the calories per week a bit if I do have a bit of a binge but also be a good cleansing tool and give me time to appreciate food, missing it, thinking about how to eat well and starting the week eating basic, healthy options at least. Nothing I've done seems to work. I want to shift 10 lbs too as I have excess on my hips and butt that because of my frame size just looks unsightly to me, even at the weight I am I have a big butt and hips for my frame ALL my fat gets stored there!

Very important is also what you are eating. Fasting is really great. I have been doing IF Intermittent Fasting described below for around a year now. I am starting to move further into fasting for longer periods. So far it has been working great for me. I am obese and diabetic, so i have to be even more careful in fasting. In addition I have lost about 76lbs going from est. So in doing the body fat calculations i estimated. Currently i am weighing lbs give or take a pound from last week. An i was in at I wish you luck in your journey, but be careful of advice based tradition thoughts, much of the research shows that it wasn't as accurate as it was portrayed to be, and that much of the advice we have been given for the last years has really been what has led to the current disease epidemics.

Fasting - losing fat from face at body I'm already thing - I would initially do it for 5 days, if not After reading this, i went and fasted for 30 hours i was shooting for longer but someone handed me the most delicious looking strawberry I'd ever seen. I learned that there's a difference between eating out of hunger and out of boredom. Also, when you're hungry, healthy options sound just as good if not better than junk food. Id like to fast for 7 days to see what your friend was talking about, but that's for a different time. The strawberry WAS delicious! Me not eat 48 hrs and work hard working.

Either that or perhaps a two day fast once a month. Don't know what the best idea is. I did lose a lot of weight although i dont remember how much exactly since i wasn't doing it for dietary purposes.
I however gained it back shortly after as i resumed my normal diet. I've been fasting for 3 days now and still going. I'm doing it for a different reason than you. But I've noticed I've been real mad at the world, dizzy, weak. Earlier today I collapsed in my bathroom floor. It's also causing a toll on my heart too. But I need to do this. And also my body shut diwn on food period because I tried to eat and spit it right back out.
Hi I basically haven't been fasting but I haven't eaten for 5 days and I actually like the fact that I lived on juice or water and nuffink else. Would actually like to do what you did.

I am able to bust out swings with a 32 kg kettlebell and another half hour of snatches at 24 kg Kettlebell. I am on a weight loss attempt. I stress eat and I am a chef so I decided to teach myself discipline and have a kettlebell swing session everytime I stress!! Week one has been pretty good!! Happy New Year Noah, and happy to hear of your fasting goal.
That equals 2, days, or 6. This system of yogic fasting has a duration from sunrise to sunrise. You begin at sunrise on the fasting day or the night before and refrain from eating and drinking at least 24 hours. On the next day, you break fast by drinking lemon water with salt. I drink 2 cups of warm lemon water with at least a tablespoon of salt. The lemon and salt help to eliminate many toxins from your body and 40mins-1hour later you will run to the toilet and be amazed at what comes out.
Next, I'll eat some fruit and Atiba's famous oatmeal for breakfast and hydrate with coconut water, fresh squeezed OJ, or tea. I also have a fresh appreciation for simple foods that I eat every day.

Stay active and in nature, but not 14 mile bike ride active.. Group support helps. When the people around you are fasting too it's easy. When people are eating and cooking around you it's tough. Sleep will suck. I often have trouble sleeping the night after fasting.
I counter this by sleeping in the morning of fasting, and waking up extra early to break fast. If you are in good health fast with no food and no water. If you have health issues try fasting with water first, or only fruits. I just did my first fast yesterday as an experiment to get back into ketosis as fast as possible after a cheat meal.
Besides the stomach muscles squeezing, I learned it doesn't hamper physical strength and action. I expected to feel fatigued but instead found myself full of energy. It felt enlivening to experience hunger. I walked six miles during the day starting from the first moments of the morning. And this morning, I measured my blood ketones and to my amazement, 0. Fasting goes with praying and study of the word of God. If not, it is starvation.

I just finished my fasting today started Monday and ended it on Wed The temptation from food bruh I was going crazy So I just drank water for 2whole days and man did I walk and walk and walk I started moving so slowly U could not get me to hurry any at all Now that I ate I feel sick Like stuffed my stomach hates the food Restarting it fast tomorrow for 48 hours then break for a day then go 5 days!
Wish me luck! I have severe anorexia, and most of you sound lIke you meet the diagnosis for an eating disorder. This is the most fucred up, unhealthy thing I've ever read. Just finished reading this over a bowl of stewed prunes that have almost zero sweetness left because I drank off the water they were soaking in a few times over the last two days after giving up about 46 hours into a planned 72 hour fast.
And it wasn't even a strict fast, I had lots of homemade vegetable broth and a few fresh-squeezed fruit juices. I felt great at times but the last few hours have been hell. My metabolism is really high and I'm thin which is why I never did it before. Ive actually been fasting, im on hour Ive felt really lightheaded, but not that hungry. Hidration is everything! I also drink green tea no sugar, no milk for the hunger pains.
Red tea works too but theres none at home atm. It feels very cleansing to be empty! I often accidentally fast for 24 hours. I guess I must just have a small stomach because I'm never hungry, I get full on a small amount of food and I literally always have to remind myself to eat because I don't notice how long it's been since my last meal. I am currently trying 60 hours to see if I end up hungry or not. I'm 50 hours in and I haven't had a single wave of hunger yet. I also haven't lost any weight, like you did. I guess my body is just happy on only a little fuel? Only thing I have to report is that I do get very slight lightheadedneas upon standing.
Self discipline is great Even though I totally caved and ate oatmeal.
Hahhaha, you funny. I have been fasting for so far 30 and a half hours. I plan on trying for 60 hours but seeing how i feel tomorrow! I don't feel that hungry but a bit afraid because i should be hungry by now, you know? My feet are a bit clammy but i feel as though my body has reset. Good article! I'm going 42 hours without eating as prep for a colonoscopy.
Found your article while searching for what I could do to keep from eating for a few more hours. I'm hangry! I like the idea of the 24 hour fast once a month, or even once a week. Hi, It's been 4 days for me now and I was quite weak even before I started fast due to illness.
Am so weak now I can hardly stand. So I am ready to break my fast. Made sure I had absolutely nothing edible in house. But at this point I am not sure I can make it anywhere to get food. So I will get something delivered am concerned I will pass out in front of delivery person. But anyway, will my symtoms go away simply by eating? Or might there be something else going on? Have you tried electrolytes? Try lemon water, or a tiny bit of Himalayan pink salt in your water, or even green tea or black coffee. I am on hour I will not eat until the pain of having my children unjustly taken from me is less than the pain in my stomach.
Your body was going into ketosis, which is switching over from using glucose as fuel to producing ketones in the liver. Something along those lines. If you want to try this again: Drink more water. Whatever you were drinking, drink more. Supplement with electrolytes. Potassium, sodium, magnesium and zinc. When you're fasting, your body spends all the saved fuel it stores in your muscles and liver. Part of this process is flushing of water - which is why you lost all that weight which all came back in days I'm certain.
It wasn't real weight - it was water weight. When it flushes like that, it takes a lot of stuff with it, minerals you kind of need.
You get cranky and feel like garbage without them - kind of like when you're dehydrated or hung over, sort of. Anyway, 60 hours is nothing, but it helps if you supplement when you're crossing over into ketosis. I am going to try this starting at noon tomorrow. I want to see how far I can go. A minimum 24hrs. What are some of the things you drank while fasting? Only water? I decided a couple of days ago randomly that I wanted to see how long I can go without food. I was gonna set the goal for 7 days. I am at 59 hours right now. I still feel fairly well for the most part. I've wanted to eat at times but I over powered the urges barely.
I'm shooting for 72 hours to 84 hours. People in my family don't like my experiment so I've decided I would cut it short. I'm doing this for mind strength to see how strong willed I can push myself to be. And I wanna feel the experience. I will keep posted how I make out. I'm on hour 36 of a three day fast, which was suppose to initially be a five day fast but since I'm going wine tasting I know, I know, I knoooowwwww this weekend I thought I should probably cut it short two days and ease back into solids. The hunger has come and gone, it's the low energy and fuzzy head that has really been tough.
My poor kids right now, all I can do is literally lay down when I'm not at work. I googled intermittent fasting last night after 24 hours of fasting and am actually pretty stoked to incorporate that into my lifestyle. Anyway, half way done, only 36 more hours to go! I'm currently fasting I'm not hungry at all. I've read so much on fasting over the past few weeks it seems like a good thing to do to get rid of toxins and increase HGH etc Whilst I'm not hungry, I am thinking of my favourite foods a fair bit, boiled eggs, avocado I will try slowly increase the number of hours, I've been doing up to 16 hours the past while so the jump to 24 hours isn't that uch.
I can see me doing it fairly regularly for the rest of my time on this wonderful planet! Happy fasting! Hi , I've been fasting for 2 whole days now no water no food no sleep. I'm in bed now but its like I could stay awake maybe another night. I fast for about 24 hours every day. When I do eat I try to cap it at less than calories.
I honestly tend to eat about 5 times a week with zero snacks.

Down well over 30 lbs. I save a ton of money and if there is ever a crisis where food becomes scarce I will be so set. Well, having suddenly won tickets to a pretty important event I found out yesterday - Sunday - and the event is Wednesday I realised that in my currently overweight state, I was feeling in no way confident to go along and still feel okay about my appearance.
