I had another shot (this one was with oregano oil) and my "dinner" was steamed and boiled greens.

I couldn't get away with not eating after a day of productivity, but I tried my best to avoid eating by drinking water.

I feel slightly dizzy, but I don't feel as tired as I have the past couple of days.

This is my third 72 hour fast. If you’re dizzy, it could be your electrolyte levels. The second time I fasted, I found that 6-8 ounces of zero calorie Gatorade helped me perk up when I started feeling light-headed.

Thank you.

I might do pedialyte out of preference, but this is a good suggestion.

I had another ginger/oregano oil shot with some coffee.

I've been drinking a lot of water, but the fast seems to hold steady with meds. I keep having to rest, so I'm thankful I took time off of work today.

I had to break fast last night.

I started getting this weird pain on my left leg below my gluteus maximus.

It was like a muscle cramp mixed with this burning feeling.

So I ate a hamburger.

All better in the morning!
