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.
I'd stay away from Diet Coke in general, but it is also is not considered fasting, only water and black coffee
