It's fun to do this with other folks. I have been weighing myself everday, but yesterday was an interesting day. One Guinness draft beef, some grapes and raspberries (which I NEVER eat) and a lot of roast chicken. Ok. I roasted one of my own chickens, and I have never successfully roasted a chicken, but this boy turned out SO GOOD. YUM!
I could deal with the hunger, no problem, but this morning I woke up at 8 with "funny" vision--like you can get pre-migraine and a mild headache (I rarely have headaches/migraines.)
Is this a normal symptom? Like detoxing? I've never had this before on my 16-20 hour IFs.
The funny vision went away after eating. Still have a slight headache.
could be an electrolyte imbalance.
As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.
Yes, possibly. I did drink lots of water & homemade chicken broth & I took extra Magnesium (to avoid constipation.) Maybe my Potassium was out of whack...? Anyway, I'm fine & taking it easy this morning.

Paleobird, I have not heard of that particular version of IF, but really I think the point is that it is not that great for us to keep our intake the same day after day week after week. I mean even if you take into account the types of foods that are available for each season we would have to do some version of alternating right?
Yeah, I can see the merit in the "mixing things up" reasoning.
I did my first fast yesterday, along the lines of it being only 500cal over 36 hours. It was suprisingly easy, more so than last time I tried - perhaps because my thyroid is better medicated these days? When I got up this morning I didn't have a raging hunger, which I had kind of expected, so I went for a walk pre breakfast.
But on the DDs you are not really fasting. Lower calories are still enough to make the SIRT1 kick in?
Apparently yes. Dr Michael Mosely did the 5:2 regime for 5 weeks, and halfed his levels of the S1RT1. I think that was the thing they were measuring - lower levels decrease risk of cancer etc? And he stuck to 600cal or less on his down days, but not a complete fast.
