Keep your mind distracted when your feeling shitty, don’t dwell on it too much and also drink lots of water! I’ve had some slight headaches which I’m thinking is no sugar and caffeine related, but haven’t had hunger issues just yet, which I’m thinking will make tomorrow a nightmare
Also what time did you have your last meal yesterday? I’m over 24 hours in now!
I think that the first day might be the most challenging when it comes to mood swings and/or headaches. I also have a slight headache now, but it might be because I didn't sleep well (or maybe it's because I didn't consume caffeine?).Started of easy, then felt awful when I was hungry.
Surprisingly felt amazing for a good hour or so there, now I'm back to feeling like shit and a little dizzy and a slight headache.
Do they know that you're fasting? If they do, they really love taunting you, don't they?Work was F*cked! took all of 10 minutes for one of the waitresses to ask if I wanted some cake.... Straight up said NO. They where all eating it in front of me. Then another chef drops some stuff on my work bench, here have this!...
I love these types of lessons as they make you realize how many little things in life you do unconsciously (and they add up).Not finishing off my boys dinner was the hardest for me so far, goes to show how much of a habit I’m in of feeding him and eating half of it myself along with my own dinner!
I only told one of them about the fast as I got asked so many times I said this is why because I'm fasting...I think that the first day might be the most challenging when it comes to mood swings and/or headaches.

Haha had the same thought when taking pictures.took some pictures (Ugh! That was ugly).
Haha was just talking with my girlfriend on the balcony, smelling someone's dinner. I'm pretty sure you wouldn't notice them if you weren't on a fast.Man, do fresh, new strawberries smell fantastic. Big thanks to the store for placing them right at the entrance.
Coming back for them saturday!
How much caffeine do you consume daily?Started the fast off at 198.8lbs as of this morning. Have a headache from caffeine withdrawal, otherwise I feel fine. Been roughly 16 hours, but I'm used to OMAD so no problem. I've been reading more about Stoic philosophy and this challenge is a great opportunity to practice.
I drink usually drink a 16oz black coffee for breakfast, and some times a 12oz around lunch time. Whatever that equates to, I'm not sure.How much caffeine do you consume daily?
As for Stoicism, it would be a pretty cool idea to think of other uncomfortable challenges and practice.
I'm 25 hours in now. I had a slight headache since I woke up which transformed into a throbbing bitch of a headache by noon. When I have a headache (it's a recurrent thing, at least once a month) in the end I always have to take a painkiller because it doesn't go away on its own.
I didn't want to take it today consid
I didn’t know how to word that myself, but put it this way, I cancelled a round of golf this afternoon, I don’t trust being stuck out on the course if I get the need to go right away33 hours in, I feel good....
But dam what was dropped in the toilet this morning was ungodly disgusting...
The tea I drink contains about 60-70 mg of caffeine (and I only drink it once a day in the morning) vs 90-100 mg in a cup of coffee (180-200 in 16 oz), so your consumption is definitely much higher than mine.I drink usually drink a 16oz black coffee for breakfast, and some times a 12oz around lunch time. Whatever that equates to, I'm not sure.
I am curious to continue pushing myself and practicing self-control. If you think of any new challenges for a newly stoic minded, I would be very interested.
I took a couple Aleve when the headache really set in around 1pm. I still need to be able to work, and the headache was making it too hard to think straight. It wasn't as bad as your experience, though.
Same for me, I like counting stuff when exercising (reps, sets, percentage done, etc.).When I was younger and played a lot of sport I used to break trainings down into percentages and focus on that instead of how hard it was (or how unfit I was!)
Get some mineral water, it might be easier to drink because it has a different taste than tap water.Going good so far, need to up the water intake. Don't think I've had as much as I should have today. Going to end up feeling like shit soon
Sorry to hear about that, but it's best to listen to your body and if you felt it was too much, it was too much.Well guys, I failed. Right around 24 hours in, when I would normally eat, I got home from my workout and was feeling really sick, nauseous and my head was still killing me from not having caffeine. I decided I have enough on my plate right now and don't want to jeopardize my other discipline challenge, so I ate some chicken and a salad.
I had a feeling I was piling too much on at once and tonight confirmed it, I'm going back to focusing on one thing at a time. I'll revisit extended fasting some other time.
Best of luck to you all.
An ice cube salad was specifically forbidden!I just had to breakfast this morning. Am I still in?
Definitely, and it's cool that people from all around the world participate.36 hours in.
It's really nice to do this with other people and to have this thread to see how it goes for everyone.
Good job everybody!
Yeah it's funny that things come in waves. I was cold yesterday evening, fine in the early morning, then cold again later, and now fine, but a little tired compared to just a few hours ago.35 hours and still going.
Hunger noticably hit me around the 24 hour mark, but I pushed through and don't feel it this morning. I have a slight headache, but not as bad as I thought it would be. Also a little head congestion today. I assume it's just my body clearing out some of the crap in my system.
The final stretch!I’m about 49 hours since my last meal now, feeling good and ready for tomorrow!
