TT Update - Day 41

Day 41
Week 6, Day 6

Today I trialled the ‘Eat – Stop - Eat’ approach, fasting 20 hours from 8pm last night to 4pm today and it just wasn’t hard – in fact I was more productive than usual and made good progress on my current assignment. At first the very concept of abstaining from food messed with my head quite nicely, thankyou. I remembered the long fasts I used to do when I was studying naturopathy and when I was also somewhat E.D. The longest fast I did was 14 days of ‘hanging in there’ and I don’t have fond memories. Then there is the other side of it. I’ve spent the last 7 years being sure not to skip any meals in case my metabolism drops like a stone. Then along comes Brad Pilon (Brad with abs? Brab? Brabby?) with a bunch of studies showing that this is just a myth. Is it any wonder if a girl gets confused? This is a radical departure from the norm, readers.

Anyway, it all went quite well, no disasters, no rebound snarfing when the fast ended and I will do it again next Saturday. Once a week is enough for me. I really need to be at home if I’m not eating. My work is kind of fast and stressful and the only time I get a break is when I’m eating.

  1. Where do you find these things? More to the point, where do you find the time to do all the reading and research you do?

    Do you sleep?


I love to hear from you! Tell me what's in your brain, your heart or your dinner plate :D.
