Day 2 went quite well, not much hunger except in the early evening when I thought I was going to throw in the towel. I had a long hot shower to distract me. By the time I got out the hunger pangs were gone. Thats the thing about fasting. I am learrning how to cope with hunger. I am learning that I can look it in the face without panicking. I am learning to seek other pleasures instead of food. I know I'm supposed to learn that with regular dieting but the problem there is that food is still an option. Right now its completely out of the equation so I have to work extra hard to find distractions and alternative activities.
One thing good though - it sure saves money and time! I'm getting at least 3 extra hours from skipped meals.
Anyway, I didn't feel any ill effects. Just a little weak in the legs, which was ironically sorted out by a long walk. No bad breath like some say. A little headachy late afternoon but that went away on its own. So far, so good really. Tomorrow I hope to add some egg yolks to my fat repetoire.
