Barrier Broken! Fasting Crossed 24 Hours.

I have been doing intermittent fasting for the past two years, enjoying great benefits. The maximum continuous fasting so far has been 24 hours, that too a couple of times during the period.

But I just managed to break the barrier and I am into the 25th hour and just had one black coffee other than water during the period.

I am feeling good and this could be the beginning of a new phase where 36 hours upto 72 hours can be looked at for a total metabolic reset.

So it’s a lifestyle of one meal a day (one square meal and some snacks/ soups) during a eating window of 5 hours. In intermittent fasting terms it’s a 19.5 program. Which is 19 hours fasting and 5 hours of eating window.

Now I can aim for an occasional 36 hours progressing to a 3 days fasting once in 6 months.

We have a small group of intermittent fasters and if you want to join send a whatsapp to my number +91 9400056031.

Starting is easy, fast for just 14 hours to begin with which includes sleeping time. And enjoy the wellness.

‘Delay, Don’t Deny’! The Best On Intermittent Fasting.

Intermittent Fasting is perhaps the best in wellness and Gin Stephen’s book ‘Delay, Don’t Deny’ is the best I have seen on it. Moreover, it’s a pleasure to be listening to the book on Audible.

I am now on ‘One Meal a Day’ after reading the book. Well, it’s not exactly eating once, but having one square meal and one or two smaller ones during an eating window of 5 hours.

I have been on the lookout for these smaller meals. The big one, of course eat my heart out, with all the favourite things which are many sweets too.

A friend of mine suggested beetroot- carrot soup. Well here’s what I made based on her recipe.

Two beets, two carrots, one tomato, 5 shallots, 3 garlic pods, 1/2 inch ginger, chicken broth, coconut milk, feta cheese, pepper and salt are ingredients.

Steam skinned and cut beetroots and carrots in pressure cooker for 4 whistles. Drain the liquid into a hard bottom vessel. Mash the boiled and cooled vegetables in a mixer along with tomato, ginger, garlic and shallots.

Put the vessel on medium fire and add the mashed contents. When hot add one cup of chicken broth and bring to boil. (Vegetarians, go for vegetable broth). Reduce flame and add coconut milk and allow it to simmer adding salt and pepper.

Add feta cheese and the soup is ready to enjoy.

I am planning a life style of eating what I want for lunch at around 1pm and a soup like this and two boiled eggs at around 4.30 pm as the last meal of the day.

That’s, just delay and not deny what I want to eat for a sustainable and beneficial intermittent fasting routine.
