One of the benefits of the Keto diet is that once Keto / fat adapted, you’re able to begin introducing different levels of fasting, without impacting on your hunger levels. I’ve carried out a 3 Day Fast before but they say that the optimal length is 5-7 days.
Supposed benefits from lengthy fasting include improved cognitive function, through damaged cell turnover and weightloss. In this instance I’m going for the latter as I’m currently on my last week of a weight loss challenge at work and am eager to take the top prize out. The others say it’s cheating, I say they could’ve tried it themselves.
On Day 1 I weighed in 91.1kg (200lbs)
The first three days were actually quite easy. I woke up each day and brisk walked for between 60-120mins and faired ok. I even prepared/cooked all my wife’s meals.
Yesterday (the 4th day) was harder though as we went on a more difficult walk and I had to go to the supermarket to carry out the weekly shop. Trying to think ahead as to what food I’ll prepare for the week was extremely difficult.
This morning on the 5th and final day, I weighed in at 87.3kgs (193lbs).
Today has been the hardest day because I know it’s long till I can eat, so consequently, I’ve just been thinking about what I will eat!! (It will be a Broccoli, Cauliflower and Mozzarella Soup).
I am pretty happy with my results but am eager to see how much of this weight loss that I’ll be able to retain. I’ll be happy if it’s at least 1.5kgs..
Below is Day 1 vs Day 5. I think it’s just come off my face ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
