I broke my fast just short of 5 days. I was feeling really tired and wanted to sleep but at the office there’s no good resting place.
I wandered around outside aimlessly for a while until I decided I would simply break my fast – with beef soup and grilled beef.
I certainly have more energy as I type so I wanted to share my experience with the group…
The last meal prior to my fast was pork bone soup at about 5pm Sunday. I was already quite full and managed to fill my belly even more – with 2 bowls! I really wasn’t planning that extra meal but… a friend invited me to dinner so I went with it.
Days 1-2 were easier than I expected (seeing that it’s been a while since I’ve fasted) though I did add.a few key supplements, thereby “biohacking” my fast:
- (weak) Coffee w/ MCT and Collagen
- Essential Amino Acids and Ketone Esters
This made the first couple of days easier but then…
Days 2-5 I was increasingly tired and weak.
What I found odd was that I had bursts of energy and productivity here and there – especially at night when I wanted to sleep!
I was hoping to fast longer but, hey, there will be opportunity for more!
And I was hoping to “turn the (elusive!) corner” like so many other report but, alas, I didn’t.
