August 7, 2021. Fasting update – 117 hours, 42 minutes

I started on Monday, at about 10am, and broke the fast today, Saturday morning at 7.42am. That’s 4 days and almost 22 hours.The reason I didn’t go a full 5 days or more was simply that I wanted to hit the gym again, and I felt I needed something as a pre-workout. So, I ended the fast with a tablespoon of fish roe, followed by a small 40-gram whey shake and some rice cakes. …

My previous fast last week was meant to be around 5 days, but ended after 3. So, I decided to do two in short succession. I will begin my second fast today, …

October 25, 2020. The days after the 5-day fast.

The day after: First off, my body weight yesterday before breaking the fast was 70.2 kg (154.4 lbs.). Anyhow, I slept pretty well.
