Rich I have noticed significantly higher heart rate doing my cardio in a fasting state. Is this normal? I have long records of all my workouts via Garmin and can compare on the same machine (step mill or elliptical) at the same intensity. Iím talking like leveling off at 145 on the elliptical vs 135 recent average.

Hey TR. That is great that you watch your body that closely. That makes sense to me as cardio is harder for me while fasted. I wouldn't think it's dangerous. I would do lower intensity cardio though while fasting. Really listen to your body. Are you in Ketosis? Are you drinking the ER water?

Yes it is. What's crazy is how much better it feels to workout when you are slimmer. It's a cycle that builds on itself.

Yes, pretty much have not been out of ketosis in about a month now. Drinking huge volumes of ER water when fasting too as I get cotton mouthed really quick. I've never been one to take a bottle to the gym figuring I can make it through an hour workout easily but not since I started these extended fasts. I'll get so parched in 10 minutes that I'm considering actually using the public water fountain (did I mention I'm a germophobe?)

Scale fluttering around 208/209 right now. Not far from my hunt goal at all.

Default I just won the 6 month long TBH biggest loser contest !!!

I started doing this last Wednesday. I did a three day fast followed up by a two day fast. I ate keto Friday night and Sunday night. Iím down 10 pounds. My energy level is decent, but I wouldnít say itís great. Iím hoping to kick into that ďenergizedĒ mode that I keep reading about. When I first came across this here couple weeks ago I thought the idea was nuts, regardless of how much weight Rich lost. Honestly I thought it was nuts because of how much weight he lost in the short period of time. I tried to do a fair amount of research on it, reading what I can find and watching videos online. There seems to be an awful lot of benefits to it outside of just losing weight.

It is supposed to be excellent for helping lesson inflammation in the body. I can tell you something that I noticed yesterday that really caught me by surprise. Iím 55 years old, overweight and out of shape. I think all of those things contribute to me having stiffness in my legs and feet when I try to stand up after sitting for long periods of time just watching TV or driving. I know when I get out of bed I feel like Iím trying to loosen up the tinman those first few steps. I started noticing that yesterday and especially this morning getting out of bed that all that stuff this is pretty much gone. Thatís pretty dang amazing to me.

Over 60lbs lost and still dropping using keto and IF. A year ago I was scheduling epidural steroid shots and on the verge of surgery due to debilitating low back issues. Didn't do any of that and decided to try healing myself first. I started golfing again in May and have only had 1 back spasm that I can think of in over 6 months. (last week due to gym stupidity with 55lb dumbbell)
Didn't think I'd ever be an avid golfer again, two doctors told me so

How quickly did you notice the change in your back? I was honestly shocked when I noticed my legs 4 days into this.

I was probably 30lbs down before I began to realize I wasn't in constant pain anymore. Lived with it for so long I was nearly numb to everything and self medicating with large volumes of whiskey, flexeril and ibuprofen.

I don't ever want to fast to lose weight..I like food and don't want to starve myself to look how I want.

Old school eat every 3 hours, drink lots of water and be active. It's what I was taught with my degree, my training background, and strength training.

How the clothes fit and muscle is more important to me.

Congrats on the journey man. That is a heck of an accomplishment without your stomach stapled.

Does anyone get bad headaches during the fast? If so anything that helps? I tend to get headaches without eating 12-14hrs or so.

Hey Yella. I think I got you added. This is normal detox for some. Probably mostly from sugar. The ER water will help immensely with this. It won't last longer than 24-48 hours. The harder you detox the more you need to do it IMO.
