Time for the disappointment. I caved today for lunch. Was moving furniture for 3+ hours and it did me in.
Over 8 pounds down in nearly 5 full days. Not tons, but it's what I expected (around 2ish per day). For a 2-3 day fast, multiple times a month. This is definitely something that is doable. If you aren't that active, it's doable. I nearly did myself in on Tuesday with 3 hours of training in 90+ weather. Today was just like that. As I'm trying to exercise more, I simply couldn't sustain much more of the calorie deficiency.
I don't have much taste of sweets right now. So, that's a good thing. Never was tons into them, but got a Diet Coke and really don't want it. I will be incorporating a lot more fasting now. I did a 16/8 intermittent fast for 2 months earlier, and didn't get much out of it. This was much better to me.
