    First Fast..... What to expect?

    Primal Fuel
    Decided to try a long fast today. I had a good breakfast, and now I'm three hours in to what I hope to be a 24hr fast. I'm stuck at school all day.

    What should I expect to go through this first time?

    Yikes. For a first fast, doing a 24 hour one is tough... and doing it breakfast to breakfast is even tougher. Keep yourself busy!

    Next time do a fast starting from dinner to dinner, cos you get to sleep thru the first 8 hours.
    I then find if I haven't eaten breakfast I have no hunger triggers for the rest of the day.

    Let us know how you go!
    Cheers

    I'm going to be the anomaly here and say-not much.

    I ate at not quite noon yesterday, bacon and eggs, and didn't eat again until noon today.

    I was hungry, but in the 'must be getting close to lunchtime' way, not "OMG I need to EAT and NOW and make it a large wellfed STEER please!!"

    Lots of water, and it was no big deal. I didn't have a headache, no growling guts, nothing.

    Will likely do it again Wednesday.

    5:30pm. It's been about six hours and I'm doing fine so far. I was hungry around 3ish, but it passed. I'm in this zone now of not really thinking about food, and unless it changes I think I should coast just fine till tomorrow morning.

    Question: Does anyone feel bloated when they're fasting? I'd think that it would make me feel skinny and light, but I've been having a self esteem battle with myself all day for some reason :\

    11PM and still going! I'm going to sleep soon, so I'll only have a few more hours in the morning to hold out! I'm feeling better now too.

    Good for you. I've never found them that hard to be honest. I did 6 months of fasting every monday a few years ago. Drinking water when you start to feel hungry is good, actually just drinking lots helps before it even gets to that.
