Greetings All:

Does anyone get a backache right around the Kidney area toward the latter part of the day? I do. :frown:
Not debilitating but just a dull aching. And I have never had back problems.
Anyone have any ideas what is going on?
One thing, it doesn't persist when I go to sleep, which is helpful.
Maybe I should drink more liquids?

However I read somewhere on line about protein fasting once a week can trigger a type of autophagy which is an interesting take on things.
I started off at the scale at the gym, which measured my body fat different to what I have at the Withings at home. These are the results:
Home 37.2%
Gym 35%
Gym on athletic setting 30%
Well it just goes to show that body fat is hard to measure. I decided just to take it as a point of reference and resolve to get either the first or second one down to under 30% as a start.
I have carried on Fast-5ing, one carb re-feed (I'm only slightly overweight) plus a protein fast. I know now that you can do the carb re-feed and the protein fast on the...
