How I lose an insane amount of weight by Fasting 7 Days.
For the past 6 months, I have been training my body to burn fat for energy. Our bodies were designed to store energy in the form of Fat. Learning how to burn your fat for energy means you can be any weight you desire and maintain that weight relatively easy. Intermittent fasting is the tool to teach you this skill. Your body already know’s how.

This blog post is about my experiment Fasting to lose weight. PLEASE do not try this if you have a medical condition. Consulting a physician or watch some of Dr. Jason Fung’s Youtube videos to understand the principles and preparation needed.
Many athletes and celebrities use intermittent fasting for weight loss TERRY CREWS ON INTERMITTENT FASTING
The main ingredients are (1. learning Intermittent fasting, 2. Exercise, 3. Healthy Eating habits.) Your ideal weight can be achieved with intermittent fasting alone. However, I believe a good exercise regiment will create a strong muscular system.
Fasting – No Food, Only Water and once per day add Salt to water. Fasting has been used for thousands of years it a Proven technique even Jesus did it for 40 Days.
My reasons for wanting to reduce my body weight are 1. I want to live to over 100 years old. I am using the latest and safest techniques to rejuvenate my body starting at the cellular level. I am also recycling the fat gained over 30 years, some from questionable sources. I will replace it with 20% body fat from a high-quality source. 2. I love to run. When sprinting your explosive start generates forces in excess of 4 times your body weight. The problem is once you are over the age 40 your muscle strength is reduced. I am now 53 years old. Over the past 6 years, every time I get is shaped I end up getting injured always caused by muscle weakness. Reducing my body weight means less weight for my muscle and a more enjoyable long run on Sundays. My Goal at the beginning of this challenge was a 3 Days of Fasting. After day three of fasting, I revised my goal to 7 days with a Target weight of 160 LBS or LOOSING 16 POUNDS IN 7 DAYS. This would be a body mass index (BMI) of 24. I am 5 ft 10 1/2 inches. My weight went up to 176 lbs over the Holidays from a stable 173 lbs.
My goal is perfect health or as close to perfect as possible and maintain A lean fit body FREE of all medication.
Did you know it is easier to run a Fast 5K or 10K with a BMI of 19 – 20 and 1 pound of water in your stomach than to run the same distance with 50 lbs of fat on your body! Marathon runners typically have a BMI of 19 – 20. See BMI table bmi_tbl
Start of Challenge – Fasting started Saturday 12/9/2017 at 7: PM 176 lbs
Sunday Morning while doing my 1-hour cycle on a stationary bicycle. I watched a Youtube video Intermittent Fasting for Weight Loss with DR. Jason Fung, MD. Since I had been doing Intermittent Fasting for the past 6 months. I decided at that moment I would do a 3 day fast or 72-hour fasting while doing all my usual daily activity. I had been preparing my body for this for 6 months.
My preparation: There are 24 hours in a day. I choose to eat only 8 hours between 11:00 AM to 7 PM each day. I fast 16 to 18 hours each day from 7 PM until 11 AM or sometimes 1 PM with only water. I do my workout in the morning while fasting, gradually my body starts burning fat for energy before I eat each day.
12/10/2017 Sunday 7AM (12 hrs or 1/2 day Fasting) My weight 176. – Exercise Workout 1 hr cycle plus 45 Minutes running (Hill Training) Then I go to work. I am a realtor in Miami FL. Or more exactly Kendall FL Realtor. Today my workload includes
1. Final closing inspection for my listing after 59 days the lender is finally ready to close. 2. Show rental property to my client and end the day by submitting an offer for rental.
The point here is with Fasting you can do everything you usually do. You will have more energy and an unlimited supply of food already stored in your body. AS LONG AS THERE IS FAT ON YOUR BODY YOU CAN CONTINUE.
Many animals eat to get fat before winter, then they hibernate or just hide in there cave all winter without eating. In the spring they emerge eat some leaves to break their fast and let the hunting for food begin. I am happy to inform you that! Our bodies are exactly the same. The medical experts & doctors should be all lined up and shot in front of a firing squad for not telling us and teaching us that if you want to lose weight JUST DO NOT EAT ANYTHING.
When we eat our bodies store sugar in our liver for energy. The problem is our liver is like our refrigerator it is limited. Our liver can store about 24 hour supply of energy. The solution is all the excess is converted to fat. The great news is our bodies can store an unlimited supply of fat. If you have some medical issue you may need medical supervision while fasting. (So let’s not shoot the doctors as yet. Let just say it a part of their big plan of making money from overweight and obesity) Our bodies have the cure for obesity, and it is FREE. Why don’t we use it, is the question?
12/11/2017 Monday 7 AM (36 hrs or 1 +1/2 day Fasting I Lost 2 Lbs ) Weight 174 Rest day – Sit ups, Push up, stretching and lunges – basically floor exercises no strain just relaxing. Next, I need to work. My closing is delayed a few hours. The lender wants to do a final quality control before sending the title company the closing information. Both buyer and seller have requested time off from work for an 11:00 AM closing. The Title company informed us it may be 3:00 PM. As soon as they have a confirmation from the lender they will contact us. The life of a Realtor is complicated you could be the best Miami FL listing agent or the Top rated real estate agent in Kendall and your deal dies on the day of closing. There is no guarantee that you will get paid for your work. Fasting gives you more hours in the day to do whatever you like. No need to prepare meals or eat meals you could gain at least 2 hours
12/12/2017 Tuesday 7 AM (60 hrs or 2 +1/2 days Fasting I Lost 5.5 Lbs ) Weight 170.5 or BMI of 24. Today is a training day. I first drink 32 ounces of water followed by 16 ounces of hot tea before workout only hot water with ginger flavor. Total 48 ounces.
Before my wife leaves for work her advice was: Please do not faint while doing your workout. This is the first time I have fasted this long so she was concerned. My reply, do not worry I drank my usual 3 pounds of liquid, so I am fully hydrated.
My workout 1 hr cycle + 45 Minutes hill running. My weight was 169.0 at the end. This shows I did not replace all liquids lost during the workout. I know I burned some fat for energy during the workout which could account for the 1.5 lbs, but I doubt it. I think I need more water. I have not eaten for over 60 hours. It is imperative that I keep adding fluid to keep my weight above what I weigh when I first wake up in the morning. For this experiment to work I need to drink water constantly all day long and keep my body fully hydrated.
After my work out, I went to work: 1. I visited the Title company to pick up my commission check. Once the check is in my hands I can say the home is sold. “Hallelujah” In the real estate business the file/buyer could fail final review and kill the deal on closing day. 2. I made multiple appointments for other realtors who wanted to show my Listings. 3. Followed up with the potential landlord who wanted to rent their home in Kendall. 4. Made appointments for realtors to show my listings in Kendall Gate, Kendale Lake & West Kendall. With fasting, you can do all your normal activities. Your body has all the stored fat for the energy you need.
While visiting my office today my broker asked have you lost weight? Are you training for a marathon? My answer was remembered I am a sprinter. I run the shot races. I am training for a long distance. I am also working on a special plan. I write it all on my blog. I promise to tell you all about it. PS. My weight for the day was 169 lbs
12/12/2017 Tuesday 7: PM (72 hrs or 3 days Fasting 169 lbs I Lost 7lbs ) This experiment was originally planned for 3 days or 72 hours. That time has come and gone. I feel normal just like any other day. I am fully energized I have not felt hunger in the past 3 days. (3 days without eating any food or liquid nourishment only Water). Today I honestly feel I could do this fasting for 40 days and be very comfortable. The only problem is I do not think I have enough fat in my body to burn for all those days plus doing physical training workout.
12/13/2017 Wednesday 7: AM (84 hrs or 3 +1/2 days Fasting I Lost 7.5 Lbs ) Weight 168.5 – Rest day: My resting workout for today is 3 minutes of continuous Planking in the morning and 3 minutes in evening plus sit-ups. For work, I had to visit a new listing to take interior pictures as well as followup with customers most of it was on the phone. This year I sold fewer homes than last year. But, One thing I can say for this year I sold all my Miami FL listings. NONE of my Miami listings expired this year. It is approaching the end of the year and I am sure I will have a BRAND NEW BODY for the new year. Fasting is great!
12/14/2017 Thursday 7: AM (108 hrs or 4 +1/2 days Fasting I Lost 10.5 Lbs ) Weight 165.5 Today I had a hard workout lasting 3 hrs: 1-hour cycle to warm up I covered 19.67 Miles. That was a little too fast for a warm up. The reason is I am so excited and just can’t hide it, I am about to lose control and I think I like it! Next, I did my 45 min hill running today it took me 55 minutes My legs were a little tired from the cycle so I had to take extra breaks. If you are wondering how I do hill workout in Miami when all of Florida is very flat it is simple. I use a thread mill and a 15% slope. Finally, I ended my work out with a 1 hour and 5 Minutes cycle. Tomorrow is my wife’s birthday. I need to remember to get all the items I need for her surprise.
The rest of the day was spent relaxing. To rest my tired muscle, I went fishing with my fishing partner. His name is Stan. He loves Bass fishing. I eat all I catch as long as they meet the legal size. PS. I did eat that Bass in his picture. Stan does not eat fish. So, he is a great fishing partner. He is also very funny. Visit his Youtube channel SSFishingI picked up Stan and he informed me he had lost 5 pounds in the last week. I said great. I was very happy to hear. He had been riding a lot lately he is now down to 240 lbs. I asked him do I look any different? He is not able to see face only from the side and I am wearing large cloth. It is winter in Miami 65-70 degrees is very cold for us. We get dressed in our warm cloth. Stan’s answer was. Oh My God what happen to you. It has been 6 days since we went fishing and I had lost a total of 10.5 LBS. This is where I made my first mistake. “Telling him about my fasting”. If you are planning to fast for more than 3 days. Please do not tell anyone who does not understand the principle. I was sure he would understand. For the past six months, I have been telling him I only eat between 11 AM and 7 PM. Every day I fast from 7 PM to 11 AM “This is intermittent fasting” Every week we go fishing at least once sometime twice. I am always fasting the only difference is for this week I am not eating anything. This is a picture of our catch two weeks ago. I cleaned all of it and gave half to my mom. I do not mind cleaning them. I LOVE to EAT FISH.
While fishing Stan asked. Are you hungry I said? NO! Bro, you look like you need a Stake. I heard this all evening. Please eat something.
12/15/2017 Friday 7: AM (132 hrs, 5+1/2 days Fasting I Lost 12.5 Lbs) Weight 163.5 Lbs. This is my wife’s birthday. My number one objective today is to make her smile. I started by making her favorite Breakfast. Can you guess what it is? The ingredients are below.
I usually make her breakfast on the days she goes to work very early. I prepare a variety of meal while she gets dress in the morning. So, I know what she likes. I am sure she will be greatly surprised. My wife is a health nut. She never needs to lose weight. We went on a 2 weeks cruise a few years ago. It had the best and healthiest food. I return about 7 pounds over my usual weight she about 2 1/2 pounds. She knows when to stop eating. In November we went on a 7-day cruise I gained 5 lbs my wife NONE
Do you have a clue about what I am making?
I Think you should be able to figure this out by now.
It is 8:30 AM I am fasting so I will not be eating with her. I usually only eat between 11:00 AM and 7 PM. So, My wife will understand.
If this was your Birthday Breakfast what would you do?
Leave a comment below. Please be nice.
Let’s see if my princess does the same as you.
PS. She does not know I am taking this picture. It’s our little secret. Promise not to tell her.
The answer to the question is ***see below***
I think the picture speaks for itself. My wife knows exactly how much she can eat based on her size and caloric needs. Some of us have to learn to fast Intermittently or a total fast to safely lose weight fast or maintain our ideal weight.
Her exact words were. Honey, it’s too big. You know I cant eat so much.
PS. She loved the display, the flowers, my choice of garnish. Well, let say there were no complaints. I did make her smile with the Breakfast presentation.
12/16/2017 Saturday. I am tired of being asked when will you eat? or Did you eat yet? If you are planning a long fast do not tell skeptics. They will kill your fun and reduce motivation. I will not communicate my intent to anyone until I am done
12/16/2017 Saturday 7 AM weight 162.5 I Lost 14 Lbs This is the last day to complete this 7-day challenge. The Final day is here My final weight in is actually 36 hours from Friday’s weight. I usually weight in the morning. The challenge ends evening at 7 PM. This gives me an extra 12 hours to prepare for weigh in. My workout was a 2.5-hour cycle totaling 42.94 miles
12/16/2017 Saturday 7: PM (7 full days Fasting weight 161.5 Lbs Lost 14.5 Lbs)
From my experience Fasting and exercising is by far the fastest way to lose weight. I Lost a Grand Total of 14.5 lbs in 7 days. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to lose weight fast.
I missed my goal by 1.5 lbs so I will continue my fasting.
You need salt to help your cells function properly. Minerals can be absorbed into the skin with your bath using Epson salt, Ingredients for my chicken soup includes carrots.
The most important thing when fasting is drinking lots of water. (Hot water, Warm water, Water with salt, Water with lime/lemon, Hot ginger tea, Hot organic tea)
Breaking the fast – I need to be care full and eat only small portions until my stomach realize the vacation is over. I know my body will still be in the fat burning mode for the next few days. I am sure I will see some more weight loss in that time.
Once this fast is over I will spend the next few days enjoying my favorite chicken soup. My soup is very special the main ingredient is Pumpkin followed by chicken. It should be called Pumpkin/chicken soup.
Ingredients Pumpkin, Chicken (remove skin and all visible fat), Chayote Squash is also known as “cho-cho“), Malanga root (This is gluten-free and an excellent potato substitute), Carrots, Okra, Garlic, Radish, Leeks, Onions, brussels sprouts, scallions also known as Green onion. Three of these ingredients are very similar and give a similar taste and flavor. However, I have not eaten in a while and I want my first hot meal to be very memorable, nutritious, full of flavor with all my favorite soup ingredients.
Breaking the fast will have to wait, I missed my initial goal by 1.5 lbs so I will continue my fasting. I will end before Christmas with 155 lbs & 23% body fat
