Started the Snake Diet on 1st November 2018 which is almost exactly 2 months ago and have lost 44lbs in that time. I've done lots of 3 day fasts, 4 days, 5 days and a 7 day fast. Although I've lost plenty of weight I'm pretty sure that I'm retaining quite a bit of water as my measurements are reducing fast and my friends, family and work colleagues have noticed the difference in a big way.
I did do a keto diet for the first 4 days which made the transition to fasting so much easier and also noticed I did not experience any caffeine withdrawal symptoms which I've had before. I was a little light headed on the first few fasts, but this soon passed and I always refeed by eating low carb. My appetite has become greatly reduced and I find that I can't eat much during the re-feeds which has saved me a ton of money over the last 8 weeks.I drink almost entirely snake juice and I use the latest recipe as I find the pink salt too salty for me. Drinking the water cold is definitely much more palatable for me and I've bought an insulated water bottle to keep the salt water chilled when out of the house.
I stopped taking my thyroid medication from day one and haven't missed it and my health is so much better. I walk faster, train at the gym 4 times per week and have noticed how much more alert I am. I've found that anytime I tell someone I'm fasting they immediately tell me it’s dangerous and I could die. I laugh my balls off especially when the trainer at the gym said that fasting is a fad. I asked him how many years would need to pass before it was no longer a fad? Is 5000 years enough! Apparently I'm losing muscle doing this, according to him, but I've put 2 inches on each bicep and 3 inches on my chest despite losing fat. So much for his wisdom!
To sum up all I can say is how happy I am to have watched that first YouTube video of Cole Robinson insulting us fatties and inspiring us to get results.
