Baseline Measurements for the Second Fast, Day One

Here are some baseline measurements on the morning of the first day of the second fast.


My weight today is 185.5 pounds. It was probably in the 190s before the first fast a couple of weeks ago. Previously it has been up to about 215 pounds, so I think I am doing well in this area.

Ketone Baseline

I am using ketone test strips to keep track of ketone levels. I expect that those levels will go up by tomorrow as my body uses up the stored sugar and begins producing ketone bodies.

I have not measured this yet today, but I will update this post when I do. (Edit: I didn’t get a chance to take a baseline measurement earlier today, but when I’m not fasting, the reading is negative.)


I feel fine this morning. My head seems clear.


I only got about 5 12 hours of sleep because the psoriasis on my legs has been acting up yesterday and today.

Psoriasis Condition

Moderate, except for the lack of sleep, which was kind of difficult.


At 8:30 AM it is 62°F and sunny. The forecast today is mostly sunny with a high of 83 and a low of 56.
