  • Mark 30 years old male, weighing 103 kg / 226.6 lbs, 70 in /177.8 cm tall, Netherlands NL

  • Doing 60 days of Water Fasting. Starting November 1, 2011

  • Reasons for Fasting:
    Primarily weight loss, although I always like how calm the mind gets in a fast. I set myself a goal to get to my ideal weight this year. 58 days to go as I write this, and about 23.5kg/51.8lbs removed from my current goal. Some would call it unrealistic, I just hate not being able to keep my word to myself. I'll understand if I don't make it, I would just like to try. Cold temperatures, higher metabolism, and stricter fasting protocols will get me close, at least.

  • Past Fasting Experience:
    Done several fasts before, 2 months & 1 month on water in 2010, and 1 month this year. I tried juice fasting, but the time for preparation and cleaning of the juicer tends to demotivate me. Water is just easier for me.

  • Present Diet:
    Semi-healthy. I've been overeating for the past couple of months during training, resulting in more muscles, higher metabolism, and unfortunately more fat.

  • Supplements:
    Vitamins, EFA, and sometimes Proteins.

  • Relevant Medical History:
    Nothing of note. Blessed with a strong resilient body.

  • Present Medication or Drug Usage:
    I've been drinking more coffee at work lately, having a sleeping disorder.

  • State of Mind:
    Tired & slightly depressed (comparing everything I had planned for the year with everything I accomplished does that to me). And messy, like a cluttered desk. In need of structure.

  • Limitations:
    Work, if one can call it a limitation.

  • Questions:
    I would like to hear people's experiences with dry/absolute fasting. Gives me something to compare to, since I'm going to try it in between the water days for the added effect.
