    Day 5.
    Fasting bg 5.7. By 2:00pm it was down to 5.2. At 7:00 pm I got 6.2.
    I did break my fast this evening as I felt light headed and nauseous.
    I will however do more 16 hour fasting over the next week to see if it helps my bg's.

    Had you been supplementing extra salt? Sounds like classic low sodium problem..

    Yes, I added sea salt to some water 1x/day. I in the end just listened to my body. Bg this morning was 7.0 so I'm not feeling bad for ending my fast.
    I will continue IF and do another extended fast in early August.
    My weight this morning was 185lbs. Down 11.5 but I'm sure a lot of it is water.

    For 5 days that's pretty good. and good idea to stop when you feel ropey.
