- Tomorrow I’ll try a day of fasting then. As I don’t get hungry or think about food very much, it didn’t ought to be too hard! I reckon it might be productive in terms of my bloating tendencies. If I eat nothing for a whole day, it’s gotta be good for the cleansing process, right? I’ll drink loads of water, obviously so I really won’t suffer at all, I’m sure. Krisztina has declined to join me… as she is about a size 2 already I think she might become invisible altogether if she eats nothing at all….
Im also gonna subscribe to the SCD diet ( which isn’t far off what I do already, anyway, but the health benefits ( for those that suffer intestinal problems ) are significant, according to their testimonies anyway. We’ll see what happens – in my case it just means dropping potatoes ( which I don’t eat many of, and not having any porridge or milk chocolate- tho you can have dark chocolate if you want, and drink dry wine if you like – so it’s hardly punitive ).
Initially the fasting is supposed to be a bit difficult, but the theory is that it sharpens your brain, because our caveman predecessors had to think pretty sharpish about finding food, when there was none to eat, a problem we don’t have in the West.
A day a month is ok to begin with, but more is fine, and a whole week or 2 separate weeks per year is fine also.
So let’s see – im up for it, for sure. I’d say that anyone that vehemently disagrees with the concept is in the main part a bit food obsessed, which dictates their thinking – but that’s me being provocative, perhaps!
