I barely pissed each day. Probably no different from normal days. Twice, I guess? Maybe three times once. Whatever frequent urination is, mine experience appears outside of that norm.You keep calling them fat pads. Literally all you did through this fast is generally dehydrate yourself. You lost water weight, nothing more.
Despite having two meals in the past two days, with plenty of water content in them, the pads remain less firm than when the fast started.
In addition, I know I was damn well into an optimized state on the sixth day, as I trimmed some tree branches while it was about 33 degrees out with a wind chill to the point of failure with only minor struggle, which meant I was able to generate glucose in an optimized manner by Sunday, which was in contrast to Saturday.
I saw some shriveling on the first day, which could be the water. But the apex of losing the firmness that was there for years....was on Saturday. My left middle and ring were the chubbiest. Never mind that toes still had large pads, meaning I could have lasted another day or two running on fat burning but not losing muscle.
I've probably downed 32 ozs of water today, 21 blueberries, 1/8 slice of pumpkin pie, maybe 3 oz sauerkraut, and 2 oz of romaine lettuce.
