First blog post! I apologize in advance for my broken english, as I'm not a native speaker...
Soo... This week, I decided to go for a little 3 days-fast for two reasons:
1) I didn't eat very well the past few days
2) I wanted to see how my anxiety disorder goes when I have no potential "anxiety-provoking stimulants" in my body
I had already done a 6 days fast 2 years ago so I knew more or less what to expect but it's always interesting to reproduce the experience...
Huuungryyyy all the time and ALWAYS thinking about eating and about how long and boring those three days are going to be...
Not much change in my energy level. 2-3L of water during the day.
Tired... I had some grapefruit juice for lunch to keep me going through the day because I had tons of things to do. I've noticed that, during my both fasts, grapefruit and fresh OJ are the juices I craved the most.
I didn't think as much about eating as during the first day.
Not hungry anymore and no cravings during the day. Feeling awesome!
Around 10pm though, STRONG craving for a good smoothie!!
I woke up knowing that I could eat but strangely... I was not hungry at all and not feeling like eating anything! I weighed myself: I had lost 5 kilos!! Dammnnn
Although I thing I could easily have fasted longer, I didn't want my body to get used to the "starvation mode" and to become a fat storer so I made myself the smoothie I had been dreaming about the past few days and it felt good :) No digestion problem.
Later, I had a light cooked HCV meal (stuffed pepper with rice, tomatos, garlic etc) and another smoothie and now here I am, writing this blog post and feeling good :)
This fast definitely was a good idea as I feel much lighter and better buut... it hasn't solved my anxiety problem at all so I guess it's not related to food but only to psychological reasons.
Go for a little fast, people: it feels really good to regenerate your cells and your immune system :)
