Many people ask me, how can you do it? Not eating for 1 or 2 days at a time? Don't you get angry? Don't you get hungry? Don't you feel faint?
Well, often, I'm so busy that I don't notice. But, sometimes there are days when I am facing food, writing up recipes, friends talking about what they're cooking, walking in a shopping centre and there's a food court, so many situations present us with images of food daily!
How do I manage this? There are some simple tips to follow when you're fasting:
- Follow a dedicated nutritional program that provides support throughout your fasting days
- Go for a walk in nature
- Take a relaxing bath
- Play some music
- Read a book
- Make a cup of herbal tea, ensure you have a pretty pot to make it in, make a ritual of it
- Go to the movies
- Pamper yourself as a reward
- Have an allowable treat (I have a dark chocolate infused with Green tea)
Easy when you have a plan
