    10 day water fast completed today

    Guys I put together a helluva log of a 10 day water fast which should be published in the next week or two with daily pictures, almost hourly updates and a complete story. There really isn't anything like this anywhere on the internet so this will be the first time someone who isn't some health hippy or average joe has done this and logged it.

    Basically I wanted to see if a seasoned athlete who has been lifting for years what would happen. This isn't my first rodeo with water fasting. I did a 5 day water fast earlier this year and typically do 1 24 hour fast weekly. There are tons of health benefits to fasting whether you are an average joe or a gym rat etc.

    and yes I did not eat ANYTHING for 10 days. and no I didn't die from it.

    All that will be explained in my log but I wanted to give you a sneak preview of one of my final pics. Also I wanted to destroy this ridiculous myth that you MUST eat every 2 hours or that you MUST get in 2X your bodies protein a day to keep muscle. Do I look like I lost muscle in this picture? just asking

    Fasting seems to be growing in popularity now. The Eat less principle is all the rage on social media now. I think people are finding out that we have been lied to by the food companies. Eating a lot of food causes a lot of problems with gastro, diabetes, cancer, and other diseases. If you are one of those people (like I used to be) that depends on carbs to function daily or to get in a workout you can train your brain to not be like that. I trained 10 days during my fast and I actually had great workouts during all that.

    Awesome!

    Ive tried training whilst fasting and only recently i have been trying to do it on a regular basis, i found Extreme benefits from training whilst fasting, benefits such as:
    1. Better sleep
    2. Leaner mid section
    3. Feeling of more energy throughout the day
    4. Easier breathing
    5. Muscles actually recovering quicker

    I feel assif it gives the body a break from all the food we eat and allows our body and digestive system to sorta "relax" and i done some research on fasting and there was so much benefits including the body repairs cells in a fasting state.

    Also sometimes i dont fast, and i abstain from meat for a day or two and i get the same feeling.

    Hope they come out with some more research into this topic, as it's very intresting!

    This was a great experiment. I think once the articles come out a lot of guys will be interested in trying it. I think I will try a 24 hour fast here and there first and see how it goes. The challenge for me is having a family so I cant have zero food in the house. It will require a lot of will power.

    That's interesting. Did you not at some point become greatly weakened?

    I was weakened during the fast a bit.. I wasn't able to really put 100% into my workouts, but my energy was very high and never ending

    since I have come off my fast my strength is actually HIGHER than it was prior.

    there are reasons for this, ironically when you fast you increase ghrelin which is your hunger hormone. so you can actually use fasting to bulk up muscle

    I actually miss my fast, I felt great during it. my next one will be a 2 weeker

    This is awesome! Very interested to see what your results were. You're right there's not much detailed info when it comes to this type of prolonged fasting and exercise.
