Day 2 of My First Fat Fast of 2018
192.4 lbs 35.75 inches 40 hours fat fasted
Well, the New Year has begun, and I had a bit of a rough holiday. You’ll be happy to know that I remained sober for New Year's despite some serious temptation to drink. I also remained keto, with no temptation. My commitment to the ketogenic diet is pretty solid now. I’ve had no desire to go back to carbs, and sugar since returning from my trip in November. While my weight does plateau on full-time keto eating, I do know that I don't gain above the low 190s, when I remove fasting from my diet.
The seven-day refeed week yielded two pounds of fat loss, as I did not regain all the weight. The tape measure stayed solid at 36 inches. It’ll be interesting to see what happens with this seven-day fat fast, and a refeed, without the involvement of any holiday meals. I am at my goal measurement, so if I were to stay in this range, I could live a long, happy life; however, my curiosity has me continuing the experiment since I still have plenty of body fat to work with.
Today, I’ll be filming a video on my New Year's resolutions, and things I struggled with over the holidays. I need to address a significant depression, and how I really need to work on the mental-health side of the equation this year. It’s been on the rough side for the past month, so I want to talk about some theories, and changes I can work on, going forward.
Thank you all for continued support, and encouragement for me to keep doing what I am doing. It got me through the holidays. I’ll continue to research, work on improving myself, and sharing it, in order to help others facing the same struggles. I’ll put out the first podcast by Friday, along with more video content. Very busy on the side-job side of the house, as well, with a backlog of photo-editing I need to get done. Looks like a 70-hour week is in the works, this week, even with the day off, yesterday. Have to work my DJ side job tonight, as well. However, this is a great way to spend a long fast – keeping busy can be one of the keys to success.
