Hey y'all! So, I'm participating in a big dance competition on Sunday and I wanna look as thin as I can by then because I wanna look good in pics + feel light when I dance + not look fat next to my competitors (for context, I'm a BMI 18.5-19 with some muscle, but I know there's gonna be a lot of girls that are a good deal thinner than me).

 

I can't water or dry fast, because I have to do several hours of dance rehearsal on the days leading up to/on the day of the competition, and I won't be able to handle that while I'm feeling weak and dizzy. So I'll do the next best thing: Liquid fasting. I'll get in some nutrients while not having to carry around any food in my stomach. 

 

Here's a list of drinks I have available to me currently (I'm open to suggestions on other drinks to buy): water, coffee, tea, sparkling water, coconut Bai (10 cal/bottle), monster energy (10 cal/bottle), almond milk (60 cal/cup), protein shakes (170 cal and 26g protein/bottle), protein smoothies I make myself (approx. 225 cal and 10g protein each). 

 

So... I've started this topic to keep myself accountable and to hopefully get to interact with some of y'all :). I'll post updates every now and then (min. once/day).

 

Btw: It's my first time liquid fasting (I've done a lot of water fasts that were 24-50 hrs tho). If you've got any liquid fasting tips for me, please do share. Much appreciated.

hour 23/100:

 

Things are going great! I'm looking good+ I'm very energized and clearheaded (probs cuz my protein intake is 37g so far today and that's a lot better than usual) + I don't even feel the need to count cals! I know for a fact that I will be losing weight consistently and there won't be fluctuations due to the weight of food so,,, eh I can't be bothered with my usual counting. I've got 2.5 hrs of dance practice tonight hnghhh I'm nervous. I hope the coach won't be too stressed, because when she gets stressed she yells and makes the dancers repeat routines over and over again without breaks. Russian dance teacher things lololol.

 

Since my last post I had:

- a coconut Bai

- 3 cups of coffee

- 2 cups of water

- a protein shake

- a protein smoothie

hour 48/100

 

Ayyy still feeling pretty good! Even though my mom bought a bunch of my favorite foods lol. 

 

Currently at BMI 18.6 and I think I might be able to hit 18.5 by tomorrow! Super excited about that, because that's like the official beginning of the "underweight" category and I've never been there before. For pretty much my whole life I've been on the high end of a healthy BMI so this is a pretty big move for me :).

 

I'm gonna nap for an hour before dance class today. have another 2.5 hr dress rehearsal :/// ugh. Very stressed vibes rn.

 

 

Since my last post I had:

- a pink monster energy

- a cup of water

- a lowcal electrolyte drink

- a protein shake

- 2 protein smoothies

hour 54/100:

 

Wow this is actually quite enjoyable. The light feeling of fasting without lacking all my nutrients and feeling like total death. I should have tried this earlier!

 

My mom is being really annoying about it though. She gave me permission to do this liquid fast before I started but now that I'm halfway through she's objecting??? Tbh I think she just didn't expect me to get this far. Well,,, joke's on her, I have a lot more self control than she gives me credit for and I'm planning on completing this fast :P.

I was a high level competitive dancer for a lot of my life. Liquids are very unlikely to provide enough nutrients to support dancing. If you want to dance well, you have to fuel your body. You can always restrict afterwards but I never recommend starving/dieting before performing

Yeah that's fair, it didn't turn out badly this time but that was pretty risky, I shouldn't and probably won't do it again.

End:

 

Finished the fast and dance competition. Everything went great actually!

 

I performed all my dances well! I'm most proud of my solo. I usually just feel anxious on stage but this time it was different, I had so much fun. I was able to feel the movements with my entire soul. I loved it. It was incredible. I think I managed to put aside the anxiety because I was using the breathing exercises my therapist taught me and the dosage of my meds was increased recently. Also, it landed first place in my category!

 

Ended the fast after with fresh bread and pastries and hot chocolate from my favorite bakery since my mom took me there to celebrate my successful performances. Definitely not low cal but I don't give any fucks rn. I'm too happy. Going back to my usual restriction tomorrow, but tonight I am totally free. 

 

In conclusion:::: Liquid fasting is pretty cool. However, I don't think I'll do it before a dance competition again. It ended well for me this time, but looking back, some seriously bad shit could have went down if I was any less lucky. I shouldn't make stupid and risky decisions like that again. I jeopardized my performance in this really important competition just for the sake of feeling skinnier. I don't know what was going through my head when I decided to do this. In my defense, I was in one of my "delusional" episodes for the past week or so and didn't have much connection with reason.

HOLY SHIT HOW YOU SURVIVE THAT ALIVE I'm Ballet dance student (full time) and when I super low restricted for 2 days was near to pass out (my weird hypoglycemia episode) I don't have words I don't wanna praise you it's morally incorrect cause is a so dangerous thing but my inner failed pro Anna butterfly IS IN SHOCK GIRL HOW YOU NOT ARE DEAD, I'm shocked girl you are SO FUCKING STRONG in your place probably I was passed out, PLEASE DON'T DO THIS AGAIN especially when you performance in Pointe shoes you can have a fatal injury that can ruin your career its like play Russian roulette with your dancer future.

Sorry if this ask is pretty invasive, your competition includes Master classes? HOW YOU MANAGE THAT God give me a 1% of you energy.


I wish you are eating solids nowadays, to these important days (exams/competitions) try to let the high restriction / fasting for the previous days and let the important day as a "cheat day" and ear your body and what needs and in the perfect stage manage a medium restriction always, our bodies spend more calories than normal people 1 day of a heavy deficit can be fatal, please try to do in the opposite way than your recent fast, more activity - -> more calories, Pweeeese pass out dancing is 1000% times more risky than other activities.

Haha thank you, tbh I've never passed out in my life and I think it has got to be a weird superpower of that sort.

 

And nah, the question isn't invasive at all. The competition didn't include any masterclasses, hallelujah.

 

And yes I'm resolved not to do this before a dance comp again. Looking back, it was very risky and could have ended terribly.
