Yasemin’s 30-Day Refeed Thread July 2020

I will be logging my REFEED, Journey & Progress meticulously on here from my June 30-Day Water Fast

Stay tuned!

FAQ from my 30-Day Fast

How much did you lose in 30 days?
I don’t know I didn’t weigh myself, and I decided to ditch the scale for a few months to change my focus towards other Non-Scale Victories. I’ll post some progress photos in August when I get to goal

Can you post your before/after pics?
I didn’t take any pictures because my focus was mental health and damage control from a few months of being very under the weather emotionally from pandemic… I’ll dig through my phone, I’m sure I have something to compare to :joy:

Did you workout?
No I took a break and didn’t do any exercise during my 30-day fast! :grin:

When is your next extended fast?
I will do my next one on July 25th, 2020 (after my birthday on July 19th). I’ll be vlogging it on YouTube again! :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

What is your ultimate goal?
I like the 140 range and shooting ultimately for 125-135 which I’ll probably reach by August/September (but not weighing for a while, so we’ll have to see with clothing!

How much more do you want to lose?
Probably another 30 ish lbs since I am kind of a combo of hourglass/pear-shape and I would like to see my legs slim down significantly!

Day 1 Refeed Picture & Macros
Date: July 3rd, 2020

Lifestyle: OMAD + Low-Carb


Notes:

  • Ended up only eating half the celery in the photo (but ate the full 1oz of cashews)
  • Ended up only eating half the bone broth
    ^ These notes were updated in the meal plan tracker Image!
  • No stomach issues - BM’s back (TMI) but important

*BM = Bowel Movements (TMI but important lol :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:)

Quick Tip:
Based on previous fasts, if you don’t refeed properly, you will have the food sit in your stomach like a rock & be bloated with no BM’s. Please make sure to follow refeed protocol and stay AWAY from carbs/sugar under any circumstance!

Notes:

  • Terrible stomach ache ALL night long (humans shouldn’t consume that much of anything, ESPECIALLY not that much erythritol which is the sugar alcohol in the keto ice cream which makes it more “keto” than regular ice cream).
