    I've been studying your chart. Your body is giving you a steady, incredibly steady, 2#/wk loss. I put my eye at the side of my screen and eyeballed along the curve. I see that after a fast, after your 4 day fast in January, even though some of the weight is reclaimed, nonetheless there is a net deficit.

    And so I wonder: is 2#/wk even possible for me? I'm weighing and charting until I know.

    Fabulous info there @jvcinv

    thank you amflautist. I can't answer what is possible for you, but I've looked at this data in terms of weight loss per day.

    I look at the fasts in terms of starting weight minus final weight of course. But for the number of days I don't just count the days fasting, but I also look at how many additional days it took to get back to that low weight after the gradual uptick after the end of the fast.

    For example: I started with a 14 day fast which resulted in 24 pounds lost in those 14 days, but it took another 15 days for my weight to stabilize and go back down to the low point of the fast. It's like a fast recovery period for the body I guess. So 24 pounds divided by 29 days (14+15) = .83 pounds per day.

    For the 4 day fast it was 7 pounds lost within a 12 day total period or .58 pounds per day

    For the past 64 days doing a very consistent OMAD plan I'm averaging .43 pounds per day or 3 pounds per week.
    So yes the water fasts resulted in an elevated rate of weight loss but maybe not significantly larger than my regular OMAD schedule when you consider the recovery period.
    My biggest question is how long will I continue to lose weight at this rate? 3 pounds per week is fantastic but I'm assuming at some point it will begin to slow down.

    I'm at an average body weight and it is a struggle to get down to my goal weight. So yes it will eventually slow down but if we stay consistent we will get there!

    As the body gets closer to it's ideal weight, I think it will slow down. Enjoy it while you can!

    Oh I am pleased to say the least. Didn't even dream that I'd be where I am now.
    I had given up for at least the past decade, resigned to being fat because "I'm just one of those people who can't lose weight" or "too old" etc, etc.
