    Well done @bulkbiker. Did that pesky VF shift any at all with that shift down in the poundage?

    You need a DEXA scan. The VF of 11 astounds me.

    It is 2 weeks since I ended the 64 hour fast. I know there is another March fast thread, but this seems to be the most relevant place to update.

    I have generally been sticking to just having coffee, or water until afternoon, when I have some yogurt or cheese. Twice a week just have one meal a day, early evening. I had hoped for autophagy to take place on the long fast. I missed it if it did, as I have had a chest cold that I am having trouble shaking off. With accompanying leg pain and headaches and sore throat, and fatigue. Correlation does not mean causation, though, so I don’t blame the fasting. More the snivelling wretch who sneezed in my face.

    The good news? I only regained 0.5 kg. Ketone levels became neutral after 3 days. Blood glucose levels are down on average of 1.2 points, seeing 4s and 5s rather than 5s and 6s, with lower early morning levels than of late, they had been in the 7s now 6s. The not so good news? I don’t have much of an appetite, and feel I could take or leave food, but despite very little consumption, sometimes 24 hours or more not eating, no further weight loss. Though I guess lots of duvet days haven’t helped. I need to shake off the lethargy, and get moving as my exercise regime is almost nonexistent.

    Thank you buikbiker and ziggyw for your encouraging comments, as a result of which I'm currently undertaking another 48 hourish fast in hopes of improvement.
