June 18, 2018. Fasting experiment update!

I did a regular electrolyte fast on Sunday, June 3, and continued with a 48 hour hard dry fast (no contact with water), rehydrated for 4 hours, and then continued my dry fast for another 48 hours for a total of 4 days. After this I rehydrated for two days on my regular routine with a 2-hour eating window each day (no carbs, only strict carnivore/animal-based nutrition) and did a new weigh-in with caliper measurements.

Between June 11 and June 18, I increased my eating window to 4 to 5 hours and ate as much as I could from mostly good food such as rice, meat, and fatty gravy (about 3500 to 4500 kcal as I wanted to gain back some body fat.) Unfortunately, my sleep was very bad that week, averaging 2 to 4 hours a night (with two nights without any sleep at all!) This was due to the extreme toxic load from healing my body during the dry fast (a dry fast is 2 to 3 times more effective than an electrolyte/water fast – so 4 days of dry fasting is like 12 days of regular fasting.)

I also noticed that the part of the tumor that is visible on my left leg has shrunk! With that being said, I gained 1.3 kg and I thought it was mostly fat and therefore I planned a new dry fast for this week. How wrong I was. I just did my measurements and I gained 210 grams of body fat and 1.09 kg of muscle glycogen/water weight. While I’m almost too lean for another fast, I will go ahead with another dry fast to accelerate my healing – and to gain more experience and knowledge. Also, doing a dry fast as this low level of body fat makes you tough as nails!
