RE: Currently doing an extended post-Thanksgiving fast
What mental health benefits are you experiencing with your fast? I've read there can be positive mental health outcomes such as less fatigue, better sleeping patterns, clear headedness and lower anxiety. Has any of this been true for you?
After a couple of days, you start to feel almost euphoric. Definitely less brainfog and more energy.
However, I do think it actually messed up my sleep one night. Late at night, when I'm usually asleep, I had boosts of energy that disrupted my sleep. That was really just one night, around the 48 hour mark, though.
I actually ended this fast last night, a few hours after this post. I was aiming for about 3 days and decided to end it last night instead of today because it just felt right.
