I’m new to the community, and so glad to have found the forum!
I’m a 49 yo mum living down in New Zealand, and a reasonably experienced 16/8 faster but very new to longer fasts, which is what I’ve been experimenting with lately.
They’re what bring me here - I just can’t seem to get past 3-4 days! I get to that long, start feeling weak, dizzy, and get weird side effects (like a salty taste in my mouth tonight) then I freak out a bit and stop.
Apart from not getting to the longer fasts that I REALLY want to achieve, I’m doing really well - feeling much better after every fast, losing weight (20 pounds down! Yay!) and so on. But I really want to break my barrier and get through to longer fasts.
Am I just “doing it wrong”?
Any help or tips from more advanced / experienced fasters would be really appreciated.
