I'm delighted to say that I've almost finished day #2 of ProLon! It hasn't been easy, but the times I've truly questioned my ability to complete this fast have been few. I've been struggling with headaches since yesterday and needed to take Ibuprofen to help get through the day. I am typically a daily coffee drinker, but I haven't wanted any since Sunday morning. I assume this is why I'm having the headaches. The instructions say one cup of black coffee is allowed, but I've found that I don't really want it so far.
This morning I made some tea and the quinoa soup, and took the rest of today's box to work. Day 2 marks the start of the orange drink. Basically it's an orange-flavored glucose water that provides a very minimal but steady stream of calories throughout the day. For lunch, I had an L-bar and a packet of olives. I was pretty busy at work and had no issue with hunger all day. A little later on, I had the choco-crisp bar. At about 7PM when I got home from work, I noticed the same intense hunger I had yesterday. I made the mushroom soup when I got home, and had a few celery stalks and cucumber slices like I did last night. I hate mushrooms but the soup wasn't bad at all. There's a thickness to the soups that makes them filling. I'm looking forward to an early bedtime tonight and seeing how tomorrow goes. I have a really long day tomorrow, so I hope it goes well. It'll be the halfway point of my fast!
