I’m not one for fads. If you saw my fashion sense you’d know that pretty quickly. I say this because it surprised me to find out tonight that something I used to do from time to time 20 years ago has become fashionable – fasting – or as we in the know like to call it, ‘IF’ (intermittent fasting).
Why am I thinking about fasting? Well, my stomach has been ‘off’ for about a month now and I recalled that in those ‘old days’ back in the 90s I used to fast for a day or two to get rid of stuff like this. The guy who turned me onto this was a strange bird I met in the mountains of Chichibu, Japan, who also highly recommended homemade colon cleansing for health. I went with the easier and less messy of the two remedies, I’m sure.
Anyway, I’m going to fast this evening and all day tomorrow, breaking it at breakfast (get it?) Tuesday morning, which will be around 44 hours in total. We’ll see how it goes after that. The reason I’m writing this though, is partly because I wanted to find out if anyone out there has done this sort of thing. It’s also because I’m starving for blog material.
Here’s a quick little documentary that popped up right away in my research this evening. I Wiki’d this guy and he’s still alive 8 years later, which is always a good sign of success.
Oh, and sorry for the bad Joe Friel reference in the title there. It’s all I could come up with.
