I started my Fast on Monday night at about 9:30pm. I am trying for 7 days in total. In the first few days it will be water only, depending how I feel. I may switch to a Juice Fast if my energy level sinks too low.
Tuesday morning I weighed 198. Only water and non-caffeniated tea so far, although I did take some vitamins this morning. I actually feel pretty good so far, decent energy, did a short trainer ride this morning. Have been drinking A LOT of water. Weighed about 193 this morning, and I don't think I am dehydrated. They experts say to expect weight loss of anywhere from 1-3 pounds.
Five pound seems like a lot, but when I consider how many calories I can consume in a typical day (food, alcohol, etc.) and not gain ANY weight, it does not seem so impossible.
I will update later.
