Not eating for 72+ hours.

I'm ~28 hours into it. Although I have a desire to eat I don't really feel "hunger" unless my environment triggers me, like walking down a market aisle or being around somebody who is eating. It has been a long enough time period already that my liver should be entirely-depleted of energy storage. Now I am harvesting on my body.

Will give updates.

I have a cantaloupe on the shelf when it comes time to break the fast.

There's absolutely zero point in depriving yourself of electrolytes like sodium and potassium.  Have the canteloupe right now and while you're at it lick some salt ya damn april's fool.

I thought I'd try the 16 hour fasting since I have been a little negligent about my diet. First day, 18 hours but soon gonna drop it and go get breakfast.

That would have been funnier if you'd said:

I know but then it would be a joke. The "sun" diet is not I'm afraid...

And some Indian men too, though in the subcontinent you can also have the not-on-purpose starvation thrown in for good measure. It's the worst of both worlds.

So you've been deprived of your necessary intake of April Fools'. I can very much relate, BBy. But going as far as 72+ hours, that's too much.
An admirable effort though, you shall be remembered.

72 hours is not too much unless you have health issues, like low blood pressure.

A healthy person ought to be able to go without food for a full week, no problemo.

I am now over 36 hours without food and feel perfectly fine. I have no sensation of hunger.

Nah. Lots of people (I imagine more so than in the West) do various fasts.

Too much of Western culture teaches us that we'll die if we skip a meal.

FTFY.

Catholics have been doing fasts since the day we started evangelizing, protestants don't have that self discipline.

That is a true fact but I didn't want to bring that up for the sake of being nice.

Okay, in fairness, there are boatloads of secularized Catholics who also act like you'll die if you don't eat a meal.

Speaking of points, what is yours in regards to not eating for three days?

This is actually quite easy, as long as you compensate by eating at night.
