Just finished my second two-day fast. It went great! This time I started on Friday. I did work about 3 hours today but my job is super demanding and a regular 12 hour workday, conference calls etc was too much on Day 2 last time.
Last time (2 weeks ago) I needed a LOT of electrolyte supplement. This time I took my EZ Melts multivitamin & B1 daily and I needed 1/4 less electrolytes. The first day I drank a 1.8 liter bottle of bubbly Smartwater, the 2nd day I didn’t and I noticed a difference. I also put a big bottle of Evian by my bed. Both contain electrolytes but taste better than the jigsaw mix which is kind of like Gatorade lemon lime flavor. I still had about a 1/2 dose of the jigsaw supplement over two days also. Had about 1/3 teaspoon of pink sea salt daily too. I just put a little right in my mouth, not in water.
I broke my fast with an Atkins vanilla shake and 2 slices of cucumber.
An hour later I had a cucumber/raspberry/watermelon/lime/coconut water shake (Daily Harvest). Also a packet of Macadamia butter (about 1 oz). Maybe the nut butter was too much fat but otherwise I’m doing ok.
Seems to get easier every time I do it! My feet are tingling it’s REALLY improving my circulation.
I was down about six pounds before I started this fast probably will lose another pound of fat from this one. I lose more but regain it, probably some is water and some is muscle rebuilding. Which is great, my muscle is really ravaged by Celiac disease.
