I have never really looked into this before but an app came up on Facebook and I was curious. Downloaded it and it was a subscription so deleted it immediately found a free one that was a tracker ( it’s called Life Fasting Tracker) and did my first fast 3 days ago. I did it overnight from last meal to breakfast, thought if nothing else it would get me out of the habit of snacking in the evenings. Worked out as 15-16 hour fast, a lot of which I was asleep for.
I had weighed myself that morning and I was 77.1kg next morning I was 76.1kg. Hey I thought might do it again so I have done 2 more and I’m down to 75.7kg.
The app shows you when you go into ketosis and other things. I’ve done 11 hours of ketosis in 3 nights.
I am not feeling hungry, I have drunk a river of water and I actually feel quite good.
I am going to do 2 more nights to see how it goes but I think 5 on and 2 off is a good ratio.
This sort of fast is quite natural and gets your body into a rhythm I cannot say that I agree with the longer fasts people go on as they are not natural and some people do seem to get a bit obsessed by it.
In the end I think it’s a useful tool if used wisely.
