Fourth Weekend Fasting a Success, Now a New Goal

Sunday, March 04, 2018

So this weekend there was a little more protest and hunger. No big deal now that I know human can survive at least 60 days without food. With the success of the trial run, I feel that I can go for the long run. So my goal is weekend fasting for the next ten weeks. Last meal is Fri dinner and breaks the fast on Mon morning.

Thanks to the situation at work which had threatened my weight goal, I solved the riddle with fasting. I made lemonade out of lemons.

    WOW! Great chart! I'd appreciate a direct link to the chart if you have it... I can't seem to get it big enough to actually read.

    Also, if you don't mind, I'd appreciate a link to the source of your comment that a human being can go 60 days without food. I've been looking for information along those lines, but haven't been able to find anything that states any hard parameters.

    Thanks for sharing such good information!

    Right now I'm blogging my journey back into ketosis, if you're interested:

    Fantastic! I agree that you've definitely solved your problem. I don't know if you're aware, but the two-day fasting raises your hGH levels (human growth hormone) so, if you add some strength training on your weekend fully fasted, you could probably see some great cutting and muscle development, as well as increase your rmetabolism overall. Body Builders have known this for years.

    Best wishes!
