I’ve been seeing a lot about intermittent fasting lately on the Paleo blogs. Typically I skip the articles because they are usually long and I didn’t want to be bothered. But I finally decided to read one yesterday. And I was enlightened.
The basic premise is to fast a couple of days a week and break the fast with a low calorie meal. While doing the research I came across a couple of books The Fasting Diet and The 5:2 Diet.
After reading the samples and looking at a couple of different websites I decided to go for it. I have made Mondays and Thursdays fast days. So I haven’t eaten all day and I’m planning for a dinner at about 5:30 pm or so. The non fasting days, I will eat a typical Paleo day.
I hope I don’t go crazy when I finally do eat tonight. Do you fast for weight loss or spiritual reasons?
