Awesome for you bro. I'm looking at just under five hours left (I started at 6:00pm on Thursday). I'm most surprised right now at how good I'm feeling.

My cognition seems a bit foggy too, but I'm really not that hungry at all. I've got a sense of, "Yeah, man, some food would be really good right now...", but I'm not feeling nearly as strong a sense of hunger as I did yesterday.

It's as though my body has now shifted into, "low power mode". I have been busy all morning with my family too and I'm wondering if that may have helped.

Last time I fasted like this I did a 2 mile run at hour 65 or so to see what It would feel like. It's 25 degrees out here and I won't be doing it today, although I am going ice skating with my kids.
