Well, since this is back up at the top…
I have been fasting now for 11 days. I have thus far lost 31 pounds, and feel great. No hunger, no cravings… it’s like it has completely reset my (extremely unhealthy) relationship with food.
Today I had a CT scan. I had just had a full abdomen CT scan last month, so I asked them today if they could make sure they got my liver and if they would compare versus last month’s scan, and they happily said yes. So within the next day or so I will have an idea as to whether or not this is having a beneficial effect on the NAFLD.
My plan currently is to finish out to 14 days, see how I feel, and if my weight is not quite where I want it, push towards 21 (or my target weight, whichever comes first).
As of now, my belt has moved in two notches, and my clothes are getting baggy- jeans I haven’t been able to wear for years are now fitting great. It appears that most of what I have lost/am losing is likely just the visceral fat, which I had a TON of (CT scan last month showed multiple fat-containing inguinal hernias). I still have excess subcutaneous fat, but I’m not terribly worried about that- after I break the fast I’m going to start hitting the gym daily and sticking with a keto diet, and try to get into better physical shape.
