Discovered a superpower

This entry is part 38 of 179 in the series Ketogenic Soylent

Yesterday for kicks I did a little experiment and didn’t eat anything from 21:00 the night before until 18:00, so 21 hours without eating just to see what would happen. I had read that doing a ketogenic diet my body would cope with fasting extremely well, and it did. I still drank water and some zero calorie flavored things, but I didn’t get hungry at all for the entire day. Then I chowed down on some Keto chow, a bunch of cheese and some beef jerky. I’m trying it again today and so far it’s worked extremely well. The next 3 days I’m working at a trade show/conference all day and I’m not going to have ready access to refrigeration for bringing keto chow. In the past I’ve just brought an insulated lunch bag with a cold pack which has worked very well but frankly I don’t want to be bothered with transporting food and all that. Anyhow, my plan is for the next 3 days (bringing the total to 5 days): I’m going to eat when I get home and fast the rest of the day.  On Saturday that will probably take me beyond 24 hours since that’s the pack-it-up day. It feels a little weird having not eaten for so long, especially since I’m still not hungry. I didn’t have any problem at all doing the elliptical this morning either. Anyhow, it’ll be an interesting experiment.

For my own reference, I started the day yesterday at 224.7 and this morning I was 222.8.

    I was going to give the Keto food a try, but after discussing it with my endocrinologist, it’s off the table. Being diabetic, I’m already prone to ketoacidosis and he says a ketosis diet put me at too much risk if I get sick or don’t mind my hydration, etc. Phooey

      Dietary ketosis and ketoacidosis are completely different. There are hundreds of people on http://www.reddit.com/r/keto that are diabetic and not only doing keto just fine, it often helps the ‘betus significantly. You should do a post on /r/keto explain the concerns and get some feedback from peoples.

    I’m down 30 lbs since I got the shipment in January! Each “meal” leaves me extremely full for many hours. So much so that I only take in two a day, and I’m fine. One change I’ve noticed when I’m hungry is that I’m extremely ravenous and I get angry really quick, whereas before starting this, I’d get fatigued and depressed when I’d skipped a meal and was hungry. “Hangry.” I’ve developed hangriness, and woe betide those who leave a ham next to me…
