This experiment is based on Dr. Jason Fung. and his 3 books.
So Ive tried fasting for a while now and have done 6.5 days 3 times. My definition of a fast is nothing but liquids mainly water, club soda or sparkling water. It is not a complete fast because I take in around 100 calories a day using electrolyte tables and the like. So not a true fast! I was also taking cream in my tea a few times a day but have stopped that.
Today I am at day 8 of this fast.
I’m hoping to share this information and document my journey and maybe help others out! Or freak them out not to do it
About me. I started cycling in a June of 2017 at 265 lbs. When winter hit last year I bought a used tacx vortex and quickly started using trainer road. In 2017 I rode approximately 7000 km and this year I will break 12000 km. I turn 50 in February and currently my ftp is at 292.
So here is my last week and a bit.

I’m about to start sweet spot mid base II tomorrow. Thank you to forum users for pointing me in the right direction!!!
My weight tracking is
Nov 9 214.9
Nov 12 211.3
Nov 13 207.2 Between Nov 9 and Nov 15 I was losing a lot of water from my body from everywhere.
Nov 14 205.9 Now that that period is over weight loss has slowed but is progressing well.
Nov 15 202.3 I feel great and plan to continue this for a while.
Nov 17 198.8
Nov 18 198.2
Nov 19 196.9
I see my family doctor this week and will get a quick checkup and blood work done.
A calorie calculator tracked me at 2361 calories per day to maintain my weight. Depending on the day I am negative between 2261 and about 3450.
I’m enjoying this so far. My withings smart scale says my goal weight is 145 lbs. I have not weighed that since grade 5 so I do not think that is possible. But 160 would be nice and I would also like to get my ftp up to 320!
If the ride links aren’t showing up properly please let me know how to fix.
