So yesterday marked the last week in a 4 week fasting period. What I had done was for three (3) consecutive days each week, for 4 weeks in row I would not eat any solid or liquid foods for 12 hour spans.
For those of you who didn’t read the article in my first post, I’ll post it here again.
I may have not read the whole article in its entirety, however I believe (hah!) I followed the basic protocols.
This last week was a lot harder than the previous 3 weeks I must say. In the first 3 weeks the impulse for hunger was manageable. But man the 4th week it was…interesting.
EVERY time I saw food the thought of eating it flew into my mind. It got maddening sometimes.
But whenever this happened – it didn’t feel…odd. These thoughts of food felt almost like…a challenge. A challenge to resist them and to follow through the original plan – which was to not eat for 12 hours straight.
Funny that the first two weeks of this fast was easy. If I only feel the temptations for food 4 weeks in, would I have to have more of these 3 day fasts to test myself?
For now I’m just glad that I’m back to eating normally.
