So as many of you on here know, I water fast for 36-40 hours twice a week.
I find 36 hours with no food much easier than trying to count calories and have a small meal during a fast day. In fact, I find it so easy I intend to do it for the rest of my life, albeit reduced to one day a week when I reach my target weight. I have experienced wonderful benefits which I bang on about quite a lot all over this board.
I've also done two 60 hours fasts before - last meal on Sunday night and nothing except water right through until Wednesday morning. The first time I did it was almost by accident.

I also did double duty on Friday but didn’t quite finish the second workout as I was feeling a bit wobbly towards the end of it and I didn’t want to compromise my form. All this training is a bit unprecedented for me.

This is all very strange for me but I have to say I rather like it.
Today, my resolve was back and I liquid fasted until 6.30pm when I ate a calorie counted prepared salad from M&S. it feels good to be back in control - and although I am still hungry I know it's an emotional hunger rather than a lack-of-food hunger.
I am going to fast tomorrow as well - for me, the second day is always easier than the first day of fasting. My stomach...
