So last night I completed the 3 day water fast, i could of lasted another day or two. Being that it was my first time doing, I figured 3 days was plenty. It was a great experience and I plan on doing on a regular basis.
So day 2 was pretty rough I had an headache pretty all day, which was expected. I didn't feel to hungry. Day 3 was surprisingly good. I had a lot of energy, so much that I went to the gym. I had a nice back and chest workout, I also did some cardio. Being that I haven't eaten in 3 days I didn't want to overdue it. I didn't feel hungry either.
Like I said earlier I could of stretched it a couple more days. Even though I wasn't hungry, the thought of eating stuck in my mind. I think as I do this more often I could master the mental aspect of fasting. I also didn't help that I had to cook dinner for the family. I made them baked chicken thighs, with red potatoes, tomatoes, and garlic. I baked it all in the same pan, I also made them yellow rice. I did well in controlling myself, because I usually taste the food when I cook. This time around I didn't it was tempting.
Although it was tempting and the family said the meal was delicious. I couldn't break my fast with such a heavy meal. I would of overworked my digestive system. When it was time for me to break the fast, I first drank a cup of warm water with lemon juice. I then had a small serving of fruit, strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries. For my main meal I made a salad. I had mixed lettuce, avocado, cashews, coconut flakes, dried cranberries. I drizzled some olive over the salad and added some garlic and herb seasoning and some pink sea salt.
I could of did without the cranberries because it had 14 grams of sugar, but its natural sugar not added. So I felt it was okay. The salad was delicious. I must say I did have an headache a little while after the meal. I googled it and found it that was a pretty normal occurance after breaking a fast.
So today I'll do an intermittent fast to gradually ease myself back into eating solid foods. I read that you shouldn't eat solid foods until the third day after fasting. So for dinner I will have a fruit smoothie, and the same salad. I might add some chick peas to the salad.
