Can Fasting Help You Lose Weight? – My 24 Hour Fast

Alot of the VERY reputable trainers and nutritionists i am in regular contact with started trying Planned Fasting. . i was like huh? Yes, even i was skeptical. . Fasting?! How can not eating anything be good for you? Well it turns out it is! I knew about Brads Product but i hadnt invested in it and wasnt fully versed in the inner workings of it. . But i bit the bullet and bought Brads Programme . . It opened my eyes to a lot of interesting facts!. . I know you have probably heard of ‘fasted cardio’ and not eating anything before your morning workout. . i admit i used to feel like bashing people for doing that. . i still kind of do because the REASON behind it doesnt make sense. . and i never once said it would effect performance. . did i?

Getting off track. . So after a long hard think about it (30 seconds or so) i decided to give it a try! Last thursday i decided to do a ‘small’ fast. After my late dinner (about 11pm) i stopped eating. .  Water and green tea. . thats it. So i said i would do an 18 hour fast, leaving plenty of time to get fuelled up for training and give myself a ‘taste’ of this fasting business. I thought i would be starving and letharigic, i feared i would just eat everything in sight after the 18 hours, and i would not be able to get back into a routine. .

Nope! None of that, i felt GREAT and I had unlimited energy all day! No fatigue, very little stomach rumbling. i was actually disappointed in myself that i didnt complete the full 24 hours after i ate. . i wasnt even hungry! HA

So I done the full 24 hours on the Sunday-Monday then. Great! From now on i will have AT LEAST one strategic fast in the week. . it completely eliminates cravings and teaches you alot about how your mind works. . how some food makes you want more. . The Fast resets the craving switch and puts you in control.
