Week 3 of Weekend Fasting. Warning: Belly Pictures.

Sunday, February 25, 2018

Decades ago when I first heard about fasting, people were talking about fasting 3 days, 7 days and so on. SImilar to people talk about running the marathon. I happen to think that running the marathon is harmful to you. More is not always better. Same as fasting. You only set yourself up for failure when you set a marathon-like goal. I was doing intermittent fasting of skipping Sat breakfast for months before I get to this point. I think it's better to set a small goal like 1-day fasting. I got lucky that I was able to do a 2-day fasting for 3 weekends in a row. My plan is to continue and see if I can get rid of the belly fat. I'm posting the pictures to keep track of the progress. My apology if the pics gross you out. LOL

    Thank you all for stopping by my blog. In two days I'll start my Weekend Fasting again. I'm looking forward to it as I know that any hunger pangs can be ignored quite readily. As I have mentioned that I was plateauing for several years. At last, this is the answer to my prayer, the magic bullet of fasting.

    emoticon You are totally right about working up to this. ...if you ever do intend to go longer, I found that not setting some "magical" end, but listening to your body and life and doing what works for you seems to make it easier. (I just finished 12 days. - My first ever long run.)
