Okay, so I started my water fast yesterday and it went pretty well. Nothing unusual and only occasional hunger pangs. I've done a lot of short fasts (mostly whilst trying to do long ones) t hat these symptoms are like old friends.

I also did a series of blood tests yesterday and one of the interesting things was that when they took my blood pressure they asked if I was hypertensive. I said that I wasn't and so they took it again ten minutes later and were happier with the results.

Today I slept in pretty late. I guess that when you consume lots of carbs and caffeine, when you come off them, everything shuts down to repay the debt. I took my blood pressure this afternoon and it was 150/80. That's really high for me, normally it's not much higher than 140 and during a fast it's often much lower than this.

Apart from that, nothing interesting to report. Although the BP is high, I haven't had any other signs that I should break the fast so I'm keeping with it for now...

Just a guess, the stress of missed meals elevates cortisol which raises blood pressure?

Interesting...

Maybe the monitor of the place you did the test is no the same at home, they normally tend to have discrepancies (even within the same machine). But it's a great idea to keep a chart and let us know, It seems like all elements do improve with a fast, but the more I read the answers of the doc, it seems we are all so unique and there are tons of elements to consider.

but do you "feel" different? if it's the withdraw of the caffeine, I would of guess it will go away in a couple of days, but it's a great question to ask the doc...

Happy second day fasting...!
