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.

Some math

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

Books

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.
