One Month Numbers

Okay, here goes… I am going to post things that I never thought I would about myself.  Hahaha, just not the pictures.  I may share those on my Facebook group, but I still have to work up that courage!  For full disclosure, the data presented below come from the following days of this process:

Initial weights, measurements, blood pressure and pulse – Day 0 (after evening meal)

Final weights and measurements – Day 32 (this morning)

Initial blood work – Day -6 (before vacation)

Final blood work – Day 29 (Wednesday morning)

Final blood pressure and pulse – Day 29-30 (Wednesday average)

What I did:  6.5 days water only fasting, followed by slow reintroduction of real food items (no preservatives, GMO, etc), with some poor decisions thrown in for good measure.  I started the introductions with intermittent fasting utilizing an eating period of ~8 hours and a fasting period of ~16 hours.  This continued for ~10 days.  For the next ~15 days, I mixed in a couple of longer fasts in addition to the 16/8 pattern, the longest of which I’m breaking soon, and that was ~58 hours at the time of the final weights and measurements (will be ~62 hours when I break it).  The other four were 24-40 hours fasting.

Without further ado… The changes:
