I have ended. It was almost 73 hours and I almost had to force myself to have a meal. My body seemed to be complaining about the prospect - "I don't wanna eat; I'm not hungry!" But I had begun noticing some other signs that it was time for sustenance, so I deemed it important.

This experience was reminding me of a discussion I had with Talon a few years ago when I did an experimental fast (close to 2 days, but not more). I speculated that the Ghrelin response in the body can be trained and un-trained. That is, if you add a meal to your daily schedule, you will regularly feel hungry at that time. And if you remove a meal from your schedule, you stop feeling hungry during that time. I certainly didn't expect that I would completely kill off my hunger response by going past 2 days. And now I have a unique opportunity to re-train the response as I wish now that I am breaking the fast. Do I want to switch to only one meal a day? The choice is mine, since I'm basically working with a blank slate.

I still have an hour to go. Like you, I'm not having it so bad, but I did in fact attempt this earlier this month. And I regularly did fast earlier this year at least once a week + running to little effect, for two months.

Some people just have nasty genes and have more hurdles to overcome to meet fitness goals. I feel like accepting that is probably the real first step.
