It Keeps On Going and Going

I'm still in the middle of the fourth fast of "Fasting February" which is definitely the longest fast of my life. As I write this I'm over 266 hours (over 11 days) fasted.  NOTE:  Fasts over 7 days should always be monitored by your physician. I'm pretty psyched about accomplishing such a long fast.  But it really hasn't been that hard.  I've been very diligent about keeping up on my salt, magnesium and water to keep my hydration and electrolytes normal.  I am also officially in the 230's although I expect that when I start to re-feed I will go back into the 240's for weight.

I'm  not sure when I will break this fast, but it will probably be today or tomorrow.   I will only have another couple of days to fast to meet my goal of 20 days fasted in February. In any case I consider this quite an accomplishment.  I've also gotten my largest blood ketone reading of 6.7.

I also have the next meetup for the Minnesota Ketonians group scheduled for March 10.  I'm also working on some projects to make it a valuable group to all of its members that I will announce when I'm further along.

That's all I have for today. Keep Calm and Keto On!
