Keeping some of the fasting results.
189.9 lbs 34.75 inches full keto eating.
Decided to press on with the full keto intuitive eating this week. I want to see if weight further normalizes. I dipped into the 34 inch range again even though there was not much movement on the scale. I have been a bit more physically active (and sore heh) so I realize there may be some muscle gain mixed in there. The tape measure is my most important metric, and I would be happy in my 190s with a 34 inch belly. So it looks like the fast was not completely undone.
I have seen this pattern before. After a long fast our appetite increases and our metabolism drops. There is usually significant weight regain followed by a leveling off period. Although I do NOT think long water fasts are the way in terms of weight loss, the other health benefits could yield gains in terms of health and rebuilding the body. I will be discussing this further in the podcast (which should be available tonight if the internet cooperates).
In other news I had a photo shoot over the weekend so I will be a little light on content until I get that finished and delivered. Was a pretty busy weekend. Also I am trying to reduce my hours for youtube production to 40 hours per week which is more in line with the income level. I am trying to do this while still putting out 3 videos and a live stream, so it will require some more efficiency in the production part this will allow me more research time so I can keep up with all the articles, videos etc. I have on my watch/read list. I need to not spread myself as thin, so i can provide better quality content instead of quantity.
Next week I will return to ADF 36 as my default protocol along with my final verdict on the hybrid fast (and long water fasts in general).
You can help me spend more time and resources, upgrade equipment, pay for overhead costs like website and editing software and filming equipment in an effort to grow a channel.
