    Thanks gopintos. After reading Betorq's post above, it makes me want to go a little longer but it seems daunting to go past 4 or 5 days. But I have read that it gets easier after 3 days.

    Me too! I get it now. I thought he was saying I couldnt do another 48 right off the heels of this 48, and while he was probably correct, part of me was thinking... I'll take that bet haha

    You can always download it in its complete form from the BBC site directly, http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b01lxyzc its 1 hour. Then watch it at your leisure in the evening or over the weekend. Streaming on a slow connection sucks up band width & slowwwssss everything down. I found that the youtube vids, split into four 15 minute parts were good for finding certain specific parts for review, but the complete vid on BBC is more satisfying w/out clicking on those youtube vids repeatedly...

Intriguing. Thanks for the article, Betorq.
    Yer velcum!

    I was thinking along the same lines, do a 48 hr fast every week (maybe middle of week, like Tues-Wed). Then twice a year, spring & fall, do a 10 day fast. I could do my 10 day while I'm in Hawaii this November. But it'd be a challenge there (I'm already projecting...), with all the free indigenous strawberry papayas (little apricot sizes native ones), regular papayas from my buddy's trees where I'm staying & all the free avocados & passion fruits I have access to.

    Update: At 42 hour mark now, was a little dizzy 1st thing this morning after awakening & bouncing up off the floor too quickly. It was ok, as I leaned against a chair, & put my head low between my legs til it passed. It reminds me of something I read recently, that the main danger from fasting was bruised or broken bones from patients standing up too quickly & falling down on hard hospital ward floors. Ha! Took a walk to the bank & back after sucking down my BP Coffee w/ 1 tsp coconut oil & 1 tsp cinnamon. Hunger has left me, feeling good, humming feeling has replaced the hunger emptiness in my belly. I did my regular Planks routine, still need to do the Convict Conditioning routine this morning. It's very cool cause it can be done practically anywhere & requires no equipment or being in a gym. I have an appt today @ a gourmet Mexican restaurant, food will be ordered & consumed(not by me!) & I feel perfectly fine going into that lovely odorous & tasty environment... I so love doing this!

    In researching for another post, looks like my numbers are way off. Too high. Not sure where I got these numbers from the other day when I tracked it. I did grind everything up though. I didnt throw anything away.

    Tradawg got it - you can't do a 48 hour fast in one day. Gopintos - I admire you for considering it anyway - that's the kind of not-backing-down attitude I'd expect from the Primal community!

    Annova01 - WTG!

    Betorq - keep us posted on your CC routine. Yesterday I did the horizontal pulls, jacknife squates, flat bent leg raises and straight bridges. Incline pushups were on Monday. I'm taking the day off CC today, but will hike and/or fish this evening. I hiked about 3 miles last night - I have a dog, so no days off from hiking, or I pay for it.

    I'm at about 34 hours right now and have had nothing but water. I'm a bit chilled this morning, but that's because it's in the low 60s in my house. Yes, autumn is coming soon! I have a 6:30 am meeting on Wednesdays, one hour from home. Was really wanting coffee on my drive there but I resisted. I still really want coffee. And I'm hungry, but it's not bad.

    At the 62 hour mark. Can't believe. I'm doing so well. Was not hungry at all this morning when i woke up, and I'm still not. Although, I am feeling a little weak/tired. Any tips of how to beat this? Or is this a sign that I should end the fast?

    Btw, lost 4 lbs so far. This seems to be the norm from what I'm reading
