Fast Experiment: Day +4

Strictly speaking, the experiment is over — I am eating for the forth day now — but it is not really over. I am still trying to adjust to the life with food, and it will definitely take quite some time. For the first two days I was only drinking freshly squeezed tomato juice (just as I planned), and didn’t feel any hunger or desire for it. I’ve probably drunk 3 tomatoes on the first day, and four on the second, and even that was too much. On the third day I decided to switch to more solid food and ate some watermelon, and today I ate more fresh fruits and vegetables, but still very little overall (maybe 300-400 calories if not less). Still no hunger, though the mouth sometimes wants to explore different foods.

The day I broke the fast was the worst throughout the experiment. Very low energy, felt quite lethargic. It is getting better, though. I was loosing weight up until yesterday, but today it went up a little (from 130 to 132 lb). It can probably be explained by the contents of my stomach (I had no bowel movements yet). Oh, and my fingernails started growing again!

I need more time both to return back to the normal eating pattern, and to think over the experiment. There is no doubt in my mind it was a great thing to do, though. I’ll write more later.
