Over the past month and a half, I have had some fantastic results from fasting. Many health benefits, and great weight loss as well.
I started with Intermittent fasting of between 19 and 23 hours per day on February 14.
On March 15 I decided to kick it up and started a 10 Day 24 hours per day fast.
After the 10 Day Fast, I did a 4 Day Fast starting 2 days later.
Last night, I was laying in bed and got motivated to start something new today!
So, starting today, I am going for a 30 Day Fast! That’s right, 24/7 for 30 days. I know a number of people in the Keto/IF community who have done this, it is not uncommon. I will say, I think this will be a challenge, but I think I am up for the challenge. I am looking forward to seeing how it goes.
From the fasting I have done so far, I have seen many health benefits.
- Normal Blood Sugar (in the 80s).
- Not using any medication or insulin for diabetes any longer.
- Normal Blood Pressure.
- No longer using any blood pressure medication (was using 3 previously)
- My skin is nice and moist. My feet, in particular, used to be very dry and cracked.
- I have some skin tags on my body, which are shrinking in size and I think will be gone by the end of the 30 days fast.
- My fingernails and toenails are very healthy now. They used to be very brittle.
- I feel better than I have in decades!
So, let’s see how this goes. I will post reports about the 30 days fasting as they are warranted!
Stay tuned, I have some fantastic posts coming out on this blog this week, starting in just a couple of hours!
Your on to a good thing Bob. Congratulations for taking a proactive stand for improving your health.
Thank you Richard. I agree, this fasting is great. I enjoy it, it makes me feel good… nothing at all bad about it! Like the title of the article says… let’s roll!
I wanted to try a 31 day fast for the MO the of May. How cool is this! I havr some things planned in April and I do t want to self sabotage. But this is totally inspiring and I can’t wait to read your posts! Good luck to tou, and just know that you’re giving us out here a boost!
Firstly, thank you very much for visiting my blog. I’m really happy that you found it inspiring about this, and I wish you the best of luck on your fasting also. Keep coming back, and let’s be talking about fasting and other health issues. Good luck.
I have started IF and have been cautious because my General Practitioner is forecasting all kinds of physical mayhem. She will not tell me which of my heart medications I can ease off of so I don’t have problems taking it without food.
So far, during the week, have one very small meal with meds first thing in the morning, normal low carb at lunch and fasting in the evening. On the weekends when I am home, only one small meal with meds.
So far so good.
Bob, you are an inspiration to kick my current low carb lifestyle up to the next level.
Hi LeRoy – I hear you, my friend! I have been there and done that with doctors warning of dire consequences ahead. Those who say that, in most instances, are not really up to date about fasting. Fasting is a widely used method of getting healthy now. I also had great concern in particular about when to take my meds, since I was not eating. It all worked out, though. Truth is, LeRoy, now that I have been doing this fasting for a while, I no longer need or use most of my meds! I was taking a lot of maintenance meds due to my heart problems last year, but now, I use very few meds! Good luck, my friend, on your journey to better health!
