June 27th, 2017 (Fast Day 1)

I began a 3-day fast starting at 9:30pm last night. It’s an experiment to see if there are any positive effects on a skin allergy I have been dealing with for over a year. Goal is to track mood, hunger, weight, inflammation, and energy throughout.

7:15am weigh-in 180.6    1:15pm weigh-in 177.2

Took in 3-liters of smart water, 3 cups of coffee, 2 tablespoons of coconut oil, a pinch of salt, and some regular water.

Energy was normal, especially during training. Started to fade a bit around the 4pm mark. Nothing detrimental or severe, just noticeable yawning.

Mood felt good all day, it’s currently 7:45pm and still in a very good mood.

No significant changes in inflammation, though being only 22 hours in, I didn’t expect much.
