Exciting Health Times
Series of 5 Day Fasts
Yesterday I told you about how my son and I have been doing a series of 5-day fasts, followed by a 4-hour eating window and back into another 5 days of fasting. This follows on my 28 day fast which ended in mid-June. Here are my health goals.
6 Week results
I have been seeing great results. In the past 6 weeks, I have lost more than 30 pounds. Much of that weight loss happened during the 28 day fast between mid-May and mid-June. My weight loss has slowed in the past 2 weeks or so, but I am still happy.
Recent Results with my Health Goals
As I said, my weight loss slowed in the past couple of weeks, but it has picked back up in the past few days, which makes me happy.
I am even happier that even though my weight loss slowed down, it is obvious to me that I am losing a lot of fat. It is very possible to lose fat and even gain weight by putting on muscle weight and also from water retention. Because of that, I am not concerned about the very slow weight loss.
I have noticed that I am losing fat in areas of my body where I was not losing the fat last year. This is very exciting for me.
Tomorrow, I am going to give you a report about some great autophagy benefits that I have been experiencing in the past week or so. Come back for that, I am sure that you will be amazed at some of the things I see happening with my body, I know I am amazed by it!
Plateau in the 220s
Last year, I got into the 220s with my weight, and then I found it very difficult to break below that level. This year, I am experiencing the same.
I mentioned that my weight loss had slowed considerably, the fact is that it stalled. This is also in the 220s. I stopped fasting for 6 months and put on a bit of weight (mostly water weight), but when I got back into the 220s, my weight loss basically halted. My health goals require that I beat that halt!
In the past half of a week or so, though, I am losing between 1 to 2 pounds each day. By the end of this week, I feel certain I will be below 220 and into the 2teens. 🙂 I am very excited about that. Perhaps my health goals are moving forward now.
In the past when I plateaued and then started losing pounds again, I rapidly lost a fair amount of weight.
My Health Goals
My current goal is to break through 220. When that happens I am going to be so happy.
My longer health goal (but hopefully not too long) is to go below 200 pounds.
My overall health goal (although I might adjust this downward) is to get to 180 pounds. I am 5′ 10″.
At this time, I am already at the lowest weight that I have experienced probably since about Grade 8 or so, maybe even earlier than that.
Interested in Autophagy?
A big part of my health goal is tied to autophagy. I know a lot of people on a journey to lose a lot of weight are very interested in autophagy. It is something that was unknown until recent years, so it is all still experimental. Tomorrow, as I said, check back for a really exciting autophagy experience that I have seen in the past week or two!
Well done Bob

Thank you Norman.
Excellent Bob, keep going!
Thank you very much, Jeff.
You are doing very well. Fasting really is a great help when the weight loss stalls. I’m on day 2 of a fast today, and my blood sugar readings are near to normal.
That is great! Congratulations on bringing your blood sugar numbers close to the normal range!
