Weight: 87.8 Kg.
Height: 188 cm.
What are the changes after about 2 weeks and 5 fasting days? Stats on Sunday morning:
Weight: 85 Kg.
Waist: 99 cm. I started recording this today after buying a proper measuring tape.
A decrease of just under 3 Kg. That’ll do for a start. As outlined in the previous post it’s the blood biochemistry changes that are the real prize. Weight loss and waist measurements are just easy an tracking method that can be done at home.
I got my blood checked for cholesterol, triglycerides and glucose last week. These were non-fasting numbers but will do as a benchmark for checking again in 6 months. The numbers:
Total cholesterol: 5.63 mmol/L. This should be below 4.0 mmol/L for me.
LDL cholesterol: 3.45 mmol/L. This should be below 2.0 mmol/L for me.
Triglycerides: 2.18 mmol/L. The target for me for this is 2.26 mmol/L. Okay on this one.
Glucose: 8.4. This was non fasting measurement. Will get a fasting one done in 6 months.
