The Fasting Challenge

The Fasting Challenge

Back in January I wrote about a challenge I was taking on to master one thing every month. Last month it was walking. This month it’s beginning a program of intermittent fasting. Based on the ebook “Eat Stop Eat*” I’m hoping to get some of my blood numbers back on an even keel, and I also hope it will help me lose weight. With my thyroid situation I’m not holding out much hope, but hey, it never hurts to try. I’ll be fasting on Mondays and Fridays (These are my two rest days for marathon training, so it won’t be so hard on my system), just for 24 hours – from supper to supper. This means I eat every day, and stop the fast before the starvation mode sets in, but after the fasting benefits begin.

If you’ve never tried intermittent fasting, I can recommend it. Now that I’m off the wheat I don’t wander around the kitchen in a crazed fury desperate to shove carbs down my throat, so it’s much easier! 🙂

For the purposes of prayer, starting next month, I’ll also be fasting for three full days the first full weekend of every month – Saturday, Sunday, Monday. Once a month won’t be much of a problem here, and the rest it gives my body will be quite the gift, I’m sure.

Have you ever done regular fasting? How was it for you? What’s the longest fast you’ve done? Have you done intermittent fasting?

I’d love to hear your comments and responses below!

  1. Every januari I offer my first fruit of fasting and prayer for 21 days. I start in december by slowly detoxing from coffee, so that I don’t get the horrible headaches.I practise the Daniel fast. The spiritual and phisical benefits are tremendous.


  2. That’s ok.
