If you remember, a few months ago, I was having problems getting rid of "these last extra pounds" even if I was eating "TWO ZC meals per day". This is when I tried to do a "ONE ZC meal regiment a day", eating once in the evening and fasting the other 23 hours which was, at the end, an "intermittent fasting" way of eating (IF).
I had great success then, putting weight off, but a long flight with severe jet-lag consequences broke my routine and I never could go back "on my one meal per day" way of eating that I maintained for 6 weeks.
I was sort of upset about this and did some research to discover it was probably time for me to go on a "TOTAL FAST regiment", a way of doing a RESET of my metabolism.
The idea of not eating at all scared my in the beginning because as many of us, hunger is an emotion I do not handle well. But in my readings, I founded the testimony of one guy doing a total fast and it was enough to convince me to give it a try. He was saying:
"I came to realize hunger pangs are short-lived and pass quickly, making it very doable".
So here I am, at Day #2 of a TOTAL FAST.
I feel quite relax, and have already lost 5.0 lbs of the 25 lbs I want to loose.
Hunger sensations do come, here and there, but nothing I cannot deal with. A little sip of sparkling water seems to be enough to kill it.
I sleep much better, I do not feel weak at all, and I am very positive about this experiment.
My readings taught me the first 3 days of any TOTAL fast are the worst. Well I am at Day # 2 and if it stays like this, it should not be too difficult to continue.
I have to admit choosing a quiet moment of my life to embark on this total fast and everyone around me were told not to stress me with unimportant stuff. I know this is an essential requirement for me for succeed.
So I am quite excited and, of course, will keep you all posted.
