Fasting Journal : Feasting day 1, unusual reaction.

in fasting •  16 days ago

So I held out until about 2:30, which I'm going to call ten days. 236.5 hours out of 240.

But as you can see in the screenshot below, almost as soon as I started eating, my pulse rate shot up to, what are for me, very high levels. I could feel it, I am very sensitive to my body and can tune into my pulse any time I want to, but this was unavoidably present in my neck and upper chest. I also felt a little high. Buzzy.

I use one of those fitbit type things, which I put on as soon as I noticed it, but when I saw the numbers climbing I did multiple tests and also did a manual check and it was all in the general range of 80-100. The highest point was almost two hour later at around 102-103 then it rapidly dropped off in the course of 15 minutes. Normally my resting pulse is closer to the 67 you can see below.

It's lower now but still high for me, steady around 70. I was never uncomfortable or worried, but it certainly is worth recording.

I can't even guess. Until I hear someone say it happened to them too, I don't even know that it's not something unassociated.

Your body got all excited about eating? o_O Might have to check for a pattern there when you've settled into whatever fasting/eating pattern you're going for now XD

Exactly. I had my device off at the time, next time I'll make sure I have it charged and running.
