I've not eaten in a few days.
I take that back, yesterday I had a Corona which gave me an instant buzz and then a small cup of Paciugo gelato. I was so stuffed I was miserable for about 20 minutes.
The last food I remember having before that was last Wenesday when I crunched on 2 carrots -- I was stuffed before I got to the 2nd carrot but made myself eat it.
I've been drinking a lot of water with lime, sometimes I may crack open a Rockstar and I know on Saturday I had a 2 serving container of Odwalla Super Food....love that stuff!
I'm not sick and heaven knows I'm not anorexic by any stretch of the imagination. I think that since I have knowingly gone into a fast on a few ocassions before, that this time, my body just slid into it naturally.
There are a lot of people that fast for spiritual reasons -- that's not me. What I have noticed is that when I fast my energy level increases and stays steady all day long; I also sleep less and better. My thinking is sharp, I ride the bike fine with no lightheadedness and my skin feels softer.
At some point I will crave food again and at that time I will eat. It will usually start off with craving fruits or vegetables and then something heavier or more decadent.
If you have never tried fasting, I do recommend it. It's natural and it gives your body a break. The average American spends 1/3 of their calories digesting food -- that's an awful lot of energy. If you are interested in the benefits of fasting, definitely make use of Google and some of these sites:
