I did a 24 hour fast yesterday, having eaten Friday night and not eating on Saturday until the evening. I think I managed about 900 calories around dinner time, eating slowly from about 5:30 until about 8. Around 8, I started again.
Yesterday's fasting was easier than I expected to be, but knowing both what the experience is like and that I can endure the hunger for one f'ing day, made the day not particularly difficult.
What has surprised me about today's fasting, however, is the lack of hunger I am feeling. I was expecting today to be incredibly hungry, but, nope, not really. When I think about the question, "Am I hungry?" the answer was no until about 4pm. This surprised me a bit, until, well, I realized the body adapts to many things, and hunger is one it is evolved to withstand.
I'm uncertain how many days I'll do this. I suspect tomorrow will have a huge hunger backlash and I will want to eat everything in sight. I might switch to every other day if that happens. We'll see.
Tonight, however, I'm having buttermilk cornbread from a new-to-me recipe, and chili.
