Last time we heard from Xavi, he had just finished a marathon after three days of fasting.
In that experiment, he avoided cramps by taking in electrolytes in coconut water. But coconut water contains sugar as well, and he wondered if the glucose kept him going.
This time, he consumed only distilled water, while working and exercising. It was a disaster.
- It turned out to be an awful experience. Nothing went as planned. Hypothesis couldn’t be tested, and the fasting lasted only 6 days.
Fascinating to see how his body raised the alarm as the Brain Fuel gauge neared E.
- It is no secret that food gives us comfort, but in this experiment it became crystal clear to me. Most of the time I wouldn’t describe my feeling as being hungry, but my desire for food was immense. Sometimes so big I couldn’t think of anything else.
He lost four kilograms during the fast, then gained six after.
