141.2 on the scales. That’s 4.4lbs lost overnight.

To recap: I skipped a fast day and just ate normally for three days running, gained a shedload of weight and went to my highest weight in I don’t know how long and then one fast day later I go to almost my lowest weight. Weird.

I’m glad to say the bloat has gone and the fasting yesterday wasn’t too arduous, although I was thinking (obsessing) about food when I went to bed. I made such plans for eats today.

I’m wondering whether I have some sort of food intolerance.  I could eliminate all suspects from my diet, see if reintroduction of certain foods leads to a repeat bloat, then eliminate it again to confirm. I could be intolerant of dairy or gluten or any number of fruits but to be honest, when I do this alternate day fasting, I don’t get the symptoms. I only get it if I eat every day. So not only would that mean eating every day to find out what the food intolerance might be (and gaining weight) it also means then knowing I’m intolerant and having to avoid certain foods. I don’t want to be one of those fussy eaters who worry about certain thigns ‘contaminating’ their food. I want to be able to eat what I like without worrying about it.

So, in short, I’m not going to bother. If I am intolerant, I don’t really want know. I like being able to eat whatever I feel like. Fasting seems to prevent the symptoms and since I’m doing alternate day fasting for life, it shouldn’t be a problem. It might be something to worry about if I get to too low a weight and I need to have more food days to keep my weight stable but at the moment I seem to be doing fine as I am. I can still afford to lose a few pounds
