Intermittent fasting

I’ve decided to give intermittent fasting a go as a part of my plan to shake things up a bit physically, mentally, and maybe even spiritually. If you’re not familiar with the idea of intermittent fasting, here’s a video from Thomas DeLauer that explains the difference between intermittent fasting and time restricted eating (which I was originally going to try).

I did a 16 hour fast yesterday and found it surprisingly easy to do.  Some of the literature says you should only have water during the fast. Other literature says you can have black tea, black coffee, green tea or zero calorie diet soda.  I’m reckoning one thing at a time, so I will continue to drink black coffee alternated with green tea and plenty of good old H2O.  I’ve also ordered some of this Zevia stuff to see what that’s like.

Kevin Rose has an app that helps you track your fasting, either time restricted or intermittent. It’s called Zero.  I’ll get started with it tonight after I’m done feeding. 






I’d be interested to hear your experiences with either intermittent fasting or time restricted fasting. Any tips or tricks I should know?
