Curious re RPDers reports on long-term water-fasting
« on: June 03, 2018, 07:34:44 pm »
I was wondering if RPDers here could report on how fast they lost weight on an RPD diet while doing long-term water-fasting(7 days or more)? I myself am starting  a long-term  water-fast, while using my infrad light therapy machine to help boost my metabolism. I am also doing some daily kettlebell training. I am avoiding all supplements, all food, just drinking water.Not even using essential oils in case they might disrupt ketosis/fat-burning.Anyway, I suspect that people on a RPD diet tend to report losing weight at a faster rate on a long-term water fast if overweight, compared to cooked-food-eaters.

I've read that you don't loose as much weight when fasting as if you ate a little bit. The theory is that you're body goes into some kind of starvation mode and tries to conserve it's self. But then this could be bogus. I also read you were supposed to loose weight on a keto diet and was under the impression you could eat all the fat you wanted as long as you were under 50 grams of carbs. I found out the hard way that this is totally bogus and gained a ton of weight. I've lost close to fifty pounds since then after realizing it has to do more with calories in, calories out and that keto is only
"supposed" to decrease your appetite. My guess is that you will loose weight faster, fasting than eating a well balanced diet because the calories in, calories out rule is the truth but that it may trigger an eating urge after you come off the fast. If I may make a suggestion, I would suggest not putting any time limit and go with what your gut tells you and fast till you feel you've achieved the reset you are looking for. There are just too many bogus rules out there to follow and I feel strictly following them over common sense just gets people into trouble. Just go with your instincts. It's not like you are in some kind of contest to see if you can make it a week or not. Unless you actually are and trying to test your will power. Rules were meant to be broken. Look at politics for example. Or even driving where it says you are supposed to dim your highbeams at 500 feet. Black and white can not be 100% accurate in a world of color.
