As expected, I had to abandon the water fast on Sunday, but kept consumption of carbs to a minimum.
From Monday to Wednesday ( today ) I have been ADF ( alternate day fasting ) and find it suits me well so far.

My weight has remained fairly stable, I've lost 1kg, but that is not really significant, so possibly the amount I am eating is about right for me now. The main effect is the loss of four inches on my waist, but that could be the swimming. So it has been successful for me, despite the slip-ups.
Pity nom is so busy, he always has an interesting analysis.
That cold sounds awful, @Baruney
, not a good idea to do a lot of running before you shake it off. Walking would be ok, though, important to have good wool socks, I always find. Alpaca, if you can come by them. Are you persevering with the apple cider vin? And all those vitamins and supplements? I read somewhere that they should always be taken with food for the best effect..
On Thursday, I will get the HbA1c report, as I had the blood test on Monday. Expecting a good number- it is strange how so many doctors still cling to the belief that T2D is a progressive, chronic disease with unavoidable complications requiring more and more medications. My doctor is better than most, I think, and often asks me about what I am doing, though still remaining sceptical about whether anything will make a difference in the long run, especially anything emanating from the Internet! And so far has not offered me any meds, like Metformin for example.
Fastember may not be possible for me as there are six family birthdays in that month, but ADF would be ok.
Catch you later, keep well, everyone!
