Day 7 - One Week Status Report
IF READING THIS ON A MOBILE PHONE YOU MAY HAVE TO TURN IT SIDEWAYS TO SEE THE DATA CORRECTLY
As I complete my first week of fasting, I thought I would share some of the numbers I have been tracking of my health.
PreFast Day 7 of 20
Weight: 191 179.8 - 11.2
Blood Pressure: 138/72. 109/68 - 29
Blood Glucose: 130 78. - 52
WEIGHT - I have been losing about 2 lbs a day this week and expect that I will average 2 lbs a day according to Dr Goldhammer. That will leave me at a weight of roughly 155 lbs when I am done (my ideal weight should be in the range of 128 - 158 for my height).
BLOOD PRESSURE: My blood pressure was slow to respond to the weight loss during the first 5 days of the fast however has dropped on day 6 and 7 to 109. For the healthiest levels I will want to get the systolic number (upper number) in the 90’s. I am very interested to see where this can go with roughly 2 more weeks of fasting.
BLOOD GLUCOSE: The drop during the first week has stabilized in the low 70’s. I expect this to remain at this level for the duration of the fast. As the fat in my cells becomes significantly reduced, I expect that cell wall sensitivity to insulin will improve greatly. It will be interesting to see what my glucose levels are when I beginning the refeeding phase which occurs after the 20 day fast.
