I have some very tasty teas for my fasts now. I do not find myself hungry on most of my fasting days. I still eat too much on my eating days.

I am losing slowly but that is still good for me. I just find food too appealing.

Easter has put my weight loss plan on hold for a time. I am trying to fast but it is hard to do just now.

I am still fasting three days a week, but sometimes I eat a little something on a Friday night as that is the day that is hardest for me. It used to be a Monday that was the hardest but that is not the way it is now. Good luck to all who are trying to get to goal.

I am still fasting three days a week. On Monday I made the mistake of tasting some soup that my niece made and it was way too spicy for me, my tongue was so sore that I needed to eat something that was like bread. I had a 140 calorie fiber bar plus some cantaloupe. Not a bad down day in the up day down day diet.

I have been fasting three days a week, though some days have been about 400 calories. I know that the expertise's say that a 500 calorie day is a fast but not in my book.

Today is not a controlled eating day! It is a "shoot my self in the foot" day. I am eating way too many cookies today as well as lasagne, cereal and a sandwich. That makes it almost 2000 calories for the day.

I am finding it hard to stay with a water fast just now. Today I had 2 cups of watermelon, for just over 100 calories. But I am able to stay with that for today. I need to weigh myself tomorrow and see just where I am now.

I did my Monday and Wednesday fasts well but today has not gone as nicely. I made Low Fat Italian Almond Cookies and ate some, just as I will have some more soon as they smell so good. They are low calorie so it could be worse. I put the recipe on Spark Recipes if you want to try them.

I did not do well yesterday so today was a partial fast. Fasting until dinner time anyway. I find it hard to do three days of even partial fasts, but that is the way this week is going to be. Tomorrow will be a total fast. I am up in weight since coming here to Minnesota, as the food is more to my taste here at my youngest sister's house. Chips and dip are calling my name right now!!

I did my fast well on Monday and had partial fasts on both Wednesday and Thursday. I had dinner both of those days. Today has been a fast except for one cookie that called my name way loud!!! I find smelling things I love to eat hard on my fasting days. I will have to go out more on my fasting days so as not to be tempted.

Wednesday was a good fast for me and today will be one too. I forgot to weigh myself last Saturday so I need to do that tomorrow. Fasting is only possible for me with the help of jasmine green iced tea.

I am doing my Monday fast, with good cheer having lost over a pound last week. My weight will hold on for two or three weeks of fasting and then drop for me. It would be nice if it was more regular but our bodies do what they will.

I lost 0.8 pounds this week! After not losing anything last week I am happy to have lost some.

I got lots of sleep last night. I had trouble finding a good Jasmine Tea here in San Antonio but I did find one that works well and does not cost a lot.

This week has been odd for me. I started Friday as a fast but then we went out for dinner and that was the end of fasting for Friday. Today I did my fast with little trouble and I hope to be at a lower weight tomorrow.

Too busy to fast on Monday but I did it today. Did have soup for supper. I have a cold so the tea and soup were good. Heading for bed after some herbal mint tea.
Good luck with your job search. I know that isn't much fun.

I had a taste of the black bean soup my Mother finished today and that was a mistake! I am hungry now even with iced jasmine green tea to drink that works wonders for me most days. I am glad that you are finding fasts work for you, I lost over 30 pounds in the months before Christmas with fasting. I plan to stay with fasts until I am at my goal weight, and use fasts to stay there as well.

Apple pan dowdy sounds good in this cold weather. My fast yesterday went well. I did have toast and half a banana and did fine with just that and tea. I was down to 169 this morning...first time I have been below 170 for a long time. Fasting again tomorrow.

I did have some apple pan dowdy for breakfast today and it was great. These old-fashioned foods are fun to make and eat. I am cooking black beans tonight, to make soup for the rest of my family to have tomorrow when I am fasting.

Protein is sometimes a better choice when you are trying to eat little and when you add vegetables that can make it even better. I find that green tea kills my hunger any day I drink it.

My fast went well today, too. But I am very hungry tonight. I may have an orange before I go to bed or I won't be able to sleep. Guess I was a little too busy today and needed more energy. I have to plan better. emoticon

Typically it's 1 t loose (or 1 standard tea bag) at 140-170°F (up to 185° for Genmaicha) for 3-5 minutes. If you boil your water, let it stand a few minutes before using it to make green. The higher temp releases tannins, which can make the tea bitter and astringent (that licked-a-stick-of-deodorant feeling.)

I'm trying to work up to a liquid-only diet twice a week -- it's supposed to really help diabetics. Right now I'm making a healthy smoothie once a day with my new VitaMix. When I get settled in to that, I will up it to two meals a day, and then three (on the days I fast only).

Could somebody please remind me of how to properly make green tea, as opposed to black tea? Thanks! emoticon

Hi, Monica...This is timely. I have been thinking of trying fasting because I can't exercise much these days after hurting my knee. I would like to join you in your green tea fast. Had taken a little break from SP the past few months and I think this will be a good way to get me back on the losing track. Sounds like a good idea. Count me in. Thanks.
