second update posted 1 day after I wrote the above...
SO yesterday I woke up and decided to do my first fast. Lasted 34 hours. Didn't eat anything after 9pm on Saturday until 7 am this morning other than a cup of black coffee yesterday morning and water throughout the rest.
Went pretty well until about 9pm last night. I started to get pretty hungry, but I just toughed it out and was in bed by 11.
Anyone have opinions on this? I think next time I will just do a 24 hour fast. Might start a weekly basis type thing? Maybe bi weekly? Should I have eaten when I was hungry?
Thanks so much in advance. this site has been such a great well of information.
