In a synchronicity, I received an email yesterday about the amazing benefits of fasting.   

Dr. Jason Fung's website (Intensive Dietary Management) and book (The Obesity Code) explain thing very clearly I think.

Game on. My waist measurement this morning was an eye opener and a motivator. My visceral fat is a good number for my age though.

I fasted 15-1/2 hours before having my breakfast. I have errands to run over the course of the day so that should keep me occupied. I made me a nice Virgo Moon list of what to eat and when. I'm writing this to keep me honest until this becomes a new normal for me.

It was really easy until 3:00, I just had to give up and take a nap because I was weak, trembly and hungry. They say you won't be weak and trembly but I was. I may only have the protein drinks on Sunday.

I lost 2-1/2 pounds of water and I wasn't hungry at all this morning which surprised me. I have only eaten some oatmeal with almond butter. Food is really salty, wow.

Last post for awhile. I just wanted to say that it is 90% easier if you wait until lunch before having any kind of food.
