Up to date results
This post is a continuation of the first post where I talked about how intermittent fasting can help reduce weight and reported about my progress. Today I will provide some status updates.
The projected weight and body fat for the 5th week were
- 84.1 kg (185.4 lb), and 27 % respectively. What actually happened check in the table below.
My current weight as of 2022-07-22 is 81.3 kg (179.2 lb) and body fat 26.2 %.
The projected weight and body fat for the beginning of 7th week are
- 80.7 kg (178.35 lb), and 25.9 % respectively.
|Week||Fast hours||Eating window hours||Weight||Fat percentage||Waits||Waist to height ratio||BMI|
|1||16||8||90.6 kg (199.7 lb)||30 %||N/A||N/A||27|
|2||17||7||87.6 kg (191.8 lb)||28.7 %||100 cm||0.55||26.4|
|3||18||6||86.6 kg (190.9 lb)||28.3 %||99 cm||0.54||26.1|
|4||19||5||85.1 kg (187.6 lb)||27.7 %||98 cm||0.54||25.7|
|5||19||5||84 kg (185.2 lb)||27.3 %||95 cm||0.52||25.4|
81.3 kg (179.2 lb)
|7||20||4||80.7 kg (178.4 lb)||25.9 %|
By the way, in accordance with the book The Complete Guide to Fasting by Dr. Jason Fung the average daily body fat loss is about 1/2 pound, which is about 0.23 kg. I see exactly this thing happening.
What I observe is
- The slope of the fat loss line is – 0.5 pound/day.
- Also 0.1 % of body fat loss a day corresponds to 0.5 pound loss a day. This is how I was able to project the values of weight and body fat loss.
Good resources to reference
Since the beginning of the fasting I’ve finished reading all the books I recommended in this post, except for The Case Against Sugar.
Meanwhile, I bought another one on the subject. The book is Metabolical by Dr. Robert Lustig, which I recommend.
The BITTER TRUTH About Sugar & How It’s DESTROYING Your Health by Dr. Robert Lustig.
