okay, hold me - I’m going in. I’m starting my 2 week alternate day fasting experiment today! There’s homemade pumpkin keto pie luring with its siren song from the fridge and all kinds of leftovers, but my will is iron! I can do this. I’ve already been going until noon every day, so now I just have to go until 11pm tonight. (I decided to do this at 11 pm last night for sure). By then, I will probably already be in bed, so I might be able to tack another 8 hours onto my first ever 24 hr fast.
So I plan to drink bone broth if I really start getting too hungry. I know I can get on the elliptical or take a walk to help, too. I feel a natural high and sometimes even a sense of mild euphoria when I exercise during my baby fasts so far. I can take a hot bath or play a board game with my kids…They are all out of school right now, so I am enlisting them to help me stay strong.
I am going to skim through the fasting threads here, but feel free to send me any tips for beginners you have!
