This morning I feel ok. I am a little tired, but not overly.
As the day went on I felt really well. I had more energy. My focus wasn’t great. I tested my ketones and I was between 15 and 40 so I’ll say it was 27.5. My headache went away. I decided to read up on the dangers of water fasting… I thought I had before I started, but I probably wanted some kind of cognitive dissonance or confirmation bias who knows what you do when you’re desperate. Mostly, I was competing against a friend of mine, he doesn’t know it, and it may be one of the few times I ever feel competitive. In any case, my brain convinced me to lookup the health effects and while death hasn’t been a factor in staying fat it seems anti-conducive to getting healthy and losing a lot of this weight. I decided to do some more research; I want to lose weight and not die.
I ate some chicken, cheese, and sunflower seeds last night. I chose those foods on purpose.
I decided to look more into a short term PSMF (protein sparing modified fast) where I eat mostly protein during the day and stay under 20g carbs by eating veggies (not starches, carrots, fruits, alcohols, etc). We’ll see. it’s time for bed.
