Really surprised that I am considering not breaking this fast as 14 days was my, what I thought at the time, a rather unrealistic, goal. I just decided not to thaw, and cook the roast beef brisket, to put up in the freezer because the smell of food like that for hours and hours would likely set off cravings.
The only downside is the lack of energy, but I think that is temporary. Our bodies are very insulin resistant because of years of overdosing on carbohydrates, and it takes a few fasts to get the body to repair the damage and start working correctly by burning fat efficiently.
There is a recurring thought in my head. That is the comparison of what could be thought of as the “inconvenience” of fasting, compared to the downright living-hell of going through chemo. As few as two, 5 day fasts a year dramatically cut one’s cancer risks across the board. But teaching people to fast does not make your doctor or big pharma any money, so you see where that goes….. They would rather have you undergo chemo than fasting. It sounds like a criminal enterprise to me. Perhaps proof that the AMA medical monopoly is really a thinly veiled eugenics movement, at least on the chronic care side of the house.
I usually do not not post pictures of myself on the web, much less a selfie of me with my shirt off. But I Just had to make the point of how diet, nutritional supplementation, and life style can make unbelievable changes in your health. If you knew me 5 years ago you would not think that this is the same person.
Feeling lazy rather than me pointing out all of the great things about fasting, I will point you to this book for the time being:
Day 17 has passed, and I don’t feel any strong urges to break the fast. It’s a more enjoyable way to exist in some ways than having to plan and shop for meals. Also like I said above with any of the small downsides to fasting, it beats the hell out of getting body parts cut out, radiation or chemo. Still shooting to go until Sunday. Twenty one days. This is surreal folks but I assure you I am not superman, nor do have great willpower. People are not lying to you when they say that they don’t want to break their fast….. What made it much easier, was knowledge, and that is all that you need to take your first steps into reclaiming your health.
