No “3-Day Fast Results” Without This?

There is no reason to talk
about the 3-day results if you cannot finish the 3-day fast in the first place.
And a 3-day fast is a tough one. But there are ways to make you more successful
in fasting, so you can get the 3-day fast results.

I was not successful a
couple of times fasting for any amount of time, till I learned a few things.
You know how with real state you always hear the saying “location, location,
location”. Well if you want to see 3-day fast results the saying is
“preparation, preparation, preparation”.

Here are some preparations
you can do, that will really help you succeed. That way, you can see those
3-day fast results that you are looking for.

Keep in mind no matter
what you hear the 3-day fast results are, they may not be the same for
you—-they may be better, or they may not be as good. When it comes to the 3-day
fast results, remember, some people fib. The only way for you to know what the
results will be for you is to succeed at the 3-day fast.

Why do a 3-day fast or any fast for that matter

Spiritual or Biblical

If your religious, you know
that Christens fast to get Gods attention. Jews where commanded to fast once a
year, but there fast was to eat nothing not even drink water on that day.

Jesus didn’t eat for forty
days. He did this so to have the strength to resist the devil. Christians believe
they should go without food and water whenever they feel the need to seek God. Sometimes
we need to be strengthened spiritually so that we can petition God for the good
of others.

There are many other
religions out there that practice the same ideas.

  • There is a huge
    influx of people looking at fasting, but why now?  When it comes right down to it —— it’s for
    our health. Here are 8 items that science has shown to be 3-day fast
    results:    

  1. Helps with blood
    sugar control
  2. Helps fight
    inflammation
  3. Helps with heart
    disease, blood pressure, cholesterol, ect….
  4. Boost brain
    function
  5. Aids in weight
    loss and boosting metabolism
  6. Increased GHG or
    growth hormone
  7. Delay in aging
  8. Cancer prevention

As you can see there are
lots of reasons to fast. So, are you ready to start?

How to help guarantee success with the 3-day fast 

Have you ever been hungry?
Well of course you have. But have you ever been hungry for a long time? —-
that is the question.

One way to help yourself prepare
for success?  Learn about Intermittent
Fasting. If you have not heard of IF or not done it before, it’s more of a time
thing than a diet thing. But, there a few different programs to help you
progress slowly.

Starting with the 8/16.
This is where you fast for 16 hours and eat for eight—simple enough and a lot
of people do this anyway. You would eat dinner and then basically skip break
fast and eat at lunch.

Than you could graduate to
the 5/2 program. This is where you eat regularly for 5 days out of the week,
but 2 of the days of the week you don’t eat for 24 hours—–oh! That’s a
little tougher. If you think of it, it’s not that bad.

Just like the 8/16 just
instead of just skipping breakfast you skip lunch to and wait till dinner.

After you’ve done this a
while, you’ll start to be ready for the 3-day fast.

Another thing that will
help is if you love caffeine, go off it for a few days before you start the
3-day fast. Unless you’re going to drink during the fast. Which is fine, it’s a
great hunger suppressant.  A lot of
people will get low grade headaches when going off caffeine. Having no head
aches will increase your odds of seeing 3-day fast results.

Some people are mightier
then thou, and will say, “that is not a real fast”, but it is and don’t let
them dictate to you what to do.

The plain fact is whether
you drink coffee or not the 3-day fast is still good for you.

Pick an optimal time to do
the 3-day fast.  Believe or not there are
better times to do a 3-day fast then others.

I would make sure you are
going to be really busy, it makes time go faster. Time is not your friend in
this endeavor.

Telling friends and
relatives and co-workers, probably not a good idea. You can’t choose your
relatives, but real friends are hard to come by. So, you don’t want to lose one
over them saying something derogatory over what you are doing. Especially when
they don’t understand.

If your co-workers find
out, you will be hit with a bunch of questions;

  1. Why are you doing
    this
  2. It sounds like it
    dangerous—if you’re hangry you might say something like this “it is dangerous,
    for you if you don’t mind your own business”. Of course, I’m just kidding. For
    you out there who don’t know what hangry is, it’s someone who is mad because
    they are hungry—hence “hangry”
  3. Bet you don’t
    make it
  4. Oh, come just
    take one bite of this it won’t hurt

Is it not true that those
co-workers are always bringing in snacks?

The middle of the journey, the actual fasting first
day and looking for those 3-day fast results

If you’ve started
preparing yourself by doing some IF then already know what to expect.

I’m not one who takes any
of this easy because I’m hungry all the time and I feel for the people out
there that are like me. This may because my job is very physical and I’m active
even at the age of 61.

The thing about the first
day is you know what to expect. But it is a little dis-hearting when dinner
time comes and then goes with no food, on that first day of the 3-day fast.

I don’t check anything out
on the first day, like blood pressure, because I’m just focusing on getting
through it. The 3-day fast results you will see at the end of the fast.

2nd day of the journey to the 3-day fasting
results

I usually feel alright in
the morning of the 2nd day, but it doesn’t last long for me. The
hunger hits and then I physically start to get run down and tired. I also find
that even though I felt like I had a good night sleep I get very tired and
sleepy throughout the day.

So now on the 2nd
day I’m physically tired, sleepy and hungry. Wow this is fun.

I’ve read quit a few of
other people’s experiences. Some say that they feel more focused then
ever———–this not my experience —- unless you’re talking focused on
food. My focus is on one thing food, oh did I mention, the only thing I’m
focused on is food.

I remember my brother
telling me that he felt more focused then ever on his 24-hr. fast.  He said he was so focused that he stayed up
all night and couldn’t stop thinking of all the things rattling around in his head.
He never said how he felt the next day, I could only imagine.

I do have a physically
demanding job and I’m almost worthless by the end of day 2. I find myself
looking for any reason to sit or deliver things, it sucks.

I can start to get
lethargic and little head aches can start even if I’m off the caffeine for a
while before the fast. I know what some people say about caffeine and I’m of a
mind that, as long as you are not drinking caloric drinks, what ever helps you
complete the 3-day fast to see what the 3-day fasts results are for you “DO
IT!!!!!!!!!!!.

You will get better and
better at fasting. Every fast is different, some you’ do well at and some you
will not.

On the 2nd day
exercise is a little harder. I seem to get physically tired very quickly when
it comes to cardio. The weight lifting is not so hard. I don’t push any exercise
to hard, at my age my body is under enough stress with the dieting.

At my age my feeling is
that you don’t want to push to hard because if something goes wrong, it could
be a life changer or even a life taker. So, if your older, you can push………. But
watch and listen especially when you are exercising.

I do drink a lot of water
with fresh lemon and even sometimes Mothers Apple Cider. I hardly put any in at
any one time because I don’t want to break the fast, but could help to cleanse
the colon.

By the end of the second
day I’m not staying up late because I know me, the longer I stay up the more
likely, I’ll not make it and I’m usually very sleepy by then anyway. So, it is
off to la la la land I go.

3-day fasting results of the 3rd day

The morning of the 3rd
day you can see the light at the end of the tunnel, the question is will you
make to the end. By now it’s a question of will power—do you have it or not.
I’m hungry, tiered, lethargic, have headaches (sometimes), no energy, and I’m
so focused on food it is not funny.

One time (the first time)
I even stopped at big grocery store and bought some stuff to eat for when I got
home, it was about $200 worth of stuff. I’ve learned a thing or two since then.

One of the other things
that is hard, is not to over eat. On a fast you are probably going to burn 1800
a day, this is different for everyone and women and men. 1800 a day on a 3-day
fast is 5400 calories and believe or not, you can eat that number of calories
from the time you get home and go to bed.

I will tell you that you
over eat at the end of the 3rd day won’t sleep well, poop well and
you are going to be very disappointed in yourself. But it’s alright if it
happens——–learn from it. You had 3 days of great discipline, now we just
need to get the end of the 3rd down.

I try to be very strict
all week on what I eat but every Sunday the grandkids come over and we have
pizza. I’m going to tell you, it kills me.  I find it very hard not to over eat and I
usually fail miserably.

I’ve got to the point that
I must make my own keto pizza anymore. Which is fine because I can make it
almost as good as the pizza from the “Dark Side”. Then we rap up the left over
pizza and it goes back with the grandkids.

This is just a little
story of interest for us fasters. I have a friend who is 6’5” or so and he is
very heavy, like 350lbs heavy. He has been on 4, 30 day fast——yes you read
it right, 30-day fasts, and he has told me that the 3rd and 4th
days are the worst days for fasting. After those 2 days it gets easier.
Interesting hu?

How to break the 3-day fast for the best results

In my mind I think this is
the most critical part of the 3-day fast. Because why go through all that just
to blow it!  Right?

So, at this point you will
be surprised at how little it will take to satisfy you. Once you get that
feeling you might go to bed early one more time, so you don’t feel gratified on
that 4th day.

What to eat that 3rd night

Eat something light like a
salad or a couple of eggs. You might want to start out with a broth, although
to me that wouldn’t be filling. Maybe after the broth in 20 minutes or so you
might want to eat a little something else. Just not too much.

Everyone is different, and
you won’t know what is going to float your boat till you eat it. It might be
nuts, salad, vegies, chicken, a smoothie. You will have to play it by ear.
Every time you fast, you’ll know more and more of what to do.

I went from 162lbs to 157.
I don’t believe too much of this to be long lasting.  I’ve always felt, that some of that weight
loss, was just not having anything in the digestive track and a little
dehydration.

But on the 4th
and 5th day I lost another 2 pounds. This was the first time of all
the 3-days fast that I kept the weight off after the fast. I was a little
stricter this time. I also started being stricter on my Keto eating.

In conclusion it does suck
doing the fast there is no doubt about it. But Fasting can be addicting and once
you’ve done it you want to do it better. It’s a little like golf. After you’ve
played that first round of golf, at least with me, I thought the game sucked.
But, after I had thought about a little bit, I knew I could do better and
before you knew it, I was playing again.

Fasting is like that,
because after your done with the fast, you’re thinking that stunk. But, after a
while you start to think “I could do this better”, and you could, unlike
golf…….ha ha ha,

That facts are that the
science, testimonials and studies, tell us that it is good for us. I only wish
the information would have been there when I was younger so I could have taken
advantage of it.

Maybe the physical issues
I’m having now could have been avoided or at least prolonged.

There is no reason to talk
about the 3-day results if you cannot finish the 3-day fast in the first place.
And a 3-day fast is a tough one. But there are ways to make you more successful
