Fasting, or in other words not eating. This is a cool new tool I’ve been playing with for a few months now. I fast, as I’m recording this episode. The benefits are remarkable.
You’re saving time and money while losing those extra pounds accumulated over the weekend. Your senses sharpen. I can smell fried chicken from miles away. Your brain goes into a survival mode and focuses on important projects, which makes it an excellent practice to rethink your life’s purpose.
Your body cleans itself from the toxins, which have been there for years. Yes, your body needs cleaning too. The hunger will definitely intervene as you fast, but it comes in waves. Survive the waves and the rest of the day won’t be that hard. I usually experience two to three waves during the day.
After a few fasting sessions, you’ll discover that your body is perfectly capable of functioning for twenty-four to forty hours without food. Here’s the way I fast. Stop eating at 10 PM on the first day, don’t eat the entire second day, and resume eating in the morning on the third day, at whatever time works best for you.
Give it a shot. If you’re fearful that your body can’t handle it, consult with your doctor first. Otherwise, have a victorious cheat day then dive into a fasting journey.
