Well I guess I discovered last night 3 days is the maximum I can do a total fast. And it is NOT because I was hungry…

I am suffering from a problem called “Restless Leg Syndrome” which can be a nightmare of pain in the legs in the evenings and nights….

With a ZC diet eating mainly fresh lamb, chicken and fish + butter and cream, the RLS pain had DISSAPEARED since a long time.

But this is my second experience with total fast and each time in the night of Day#3, the leg pain comes back in full.  So last night, as the pain was out of control and there was nothing I could do to calm it down, at 10 pm, I decided to have a regular ZC meal. AND I REPEAT IT: I WAS NOT HUNGRY…..!!!

I knew this could happen and the explanation is simple: total fast has many main effects on the body hormonal system, reducing insulin, increasing growth hormone, BUT also increasing ADRENALINE levels (keeping your metabolsim going), which explains this HIGH a lot of folks get on total fast.

Except that adrenaline is conterproductive for the lacking dopamine, the basic pathology of the RLS.

So I guess I will have to plan a total fast of 2 days maximum with some refeeding days. I was thinking of 2 days FAST periods followed by 3 days of refeeding on a ZC menu.

Anyway, I lost 6 pounds with this experience and even if I had a ZC meal last night, the weight is still off this morning!!!

So I guess Intermittent Fasting is on the program for me but with a possible longer fasting schedule.

Zero Carb has really help me a lot with many health issues and improved my quality of life but I am convince I need to find the perfect feeding schedule to get even more benefits… and these last extra lbs off…!!!!

Keep you posted.
