Starting in 2012 I began regular fasting, first with one day a week (36 hours) and later 2 days a week. My weight went from 95 kg to 70 kg and stayed there until I got into a bad relationship which devolved into alcohol and stress (but which was kinda fun as well). I stopped fasting for the 2 years it lasted and my weight crept up to 85 kg. I've started fasting again (3 days a week) and it's down below 80 for the first time in a year. I record my weight every day and have done so since 2012. Fasting works like clockwork for me. I can predict what my weight will be in 6 weeks (f.ex), depending on how many fasting days I decide on. I lose between 220 to 230 grams per fast.
