  1. So I have gained a lot more fat / weight under my skin following fasting and I don't know why .
    I originally did water only fasting for 3 days. Then a month later I did the 7 day water only fasting (this was very difficult, especially last 3 days.)

    After this I decided to follow the 16:8 routine. But I when I started eating i felt overweight and lethargic .
    So I decided to do a 3 day fasting again to get rid of any excess weight .

    Now that Iam back to eating normally, I try to stick to the 16:8 routine or omad.
    However, everytime I eat now, I find blood rushing to the surface of my skin throughout the whole body, and I start sweating even on a cold day ! This happens everytime I eat, unless I eat a very small tiny meal, then I don't sweat.
    Also I find immediately after I have a meal if I then rest or sleep then I don't sweat, I feel rejuvenated and stronger. But it's not a good idea to sleep immediately after the main meal, right ?

    The other problem I have found is that my muscle mass has decreased significantly , and all I see and feel now is soft flabby fat instead of muscles. I..e my muscles seem to have turned into fat !

    My skin has become more fattier and flabby. When I look in the mirror my skin looks fattier and looser than before, doesn't look nice.

    I have also gained a lot of fat around my waste. Even though this had decreased a bit following the 7 day fast.

    I don't know why this has happened, when the whole point of fasting and controlling diet is to lose weight and become more healthier.

    But it seems to be worse than before.

    I feel more weaker, i.e less strength. Probably due to lack of good sleep.
    And the fat under my skin has increased.

    Does anyone have an explanation for this ?

    I have also started drinking ACV with lemon juice first thing in the morning, but after a week of this it seems to have destroyed my muscle mass and turned them into soft fat ?

    Also one other astonishing thing I have noticed is that I don't go to the toilet to poo that often. In fact not even once a week. ! The last time was 12 days ago. This is shocking since Iam still eating and normally I need to go poo at least once every 2/3 days.

    Sleep has not been that deep either. Uncomfortable sleep.

    Tiredness and fatigue has also increased.

    I don't know what's going on. Any thoughts / opinions / explanations will be appreciated.

    Maybe Iam eating the wrong things.
    But iam eating a lot of protein as well as drinking a lot of water. Hardly take any sugar.
