Up to day five of starving myself with a bread roll for breakfast and a couple vegetables for dinner. I’ve lost around 1kg per day since I started. I’m taking stimulants during the day to keep my metabolism up and appetite down. I take sedatives at night so the hunger pains don’t keep me awake. I don’t have the energy to exercise like I did before and I find myself struggling a little bit at work in spite of the stimulants, but I’m a third of the way there. Only a couple more weeks, I should be able to shed 10 kgs if I keep this up.
I don’t think this constitutes an eating disorder, but I’ve been trying to lose weight with little success for ages, so I decided to do the only thing guaranteed to work. If I don’t eat, I’m guaranteed to lose weight. Otherwise, I’d starve to death with fat on my body and whoever heard of that happening?
The idea is to keep going till I get back down to 70 or 65 kgs, then gradually build up my protein intake and start going to the gym again. With any luck, my weight will increase again, but with muscle and not fat. That’s the plan anyway.
