I Believe In Fasting

I ended my fasting yesterday after caving in to pressure to eat. Even though fasting has been proven to have good health benefits and was worth a try in helping me overcome my alcohol addiction. But it’s hard to keep it up when you don’t have any support, so I guess I’ll just go back to being a drunk.

Don't quit. Do you have FB ... there's a great group called Delay Dont Deny by Gin Stephens. I intermittent fast, and it has been the only diet/eating change that had ever truly worked for me. It took a few months to get used to but now I feel crappy when I don't fast.

A big grain Pink Himalayan salt and black coffee really help. Some people have better success moving their eating window to another part of the day.

I still allow myself drinks until my window closes but usually won't see any scale loss on weeks I have more than a few drinks.

[@27917,Carver] good luck!
I believe there's a few people here on SW who also fast.
You can do it!!!
I don’t like this post just because it didn’t work doesn’t mean giving up and giving in is your only opinion :(

perhaps take fasting in smaller steps.. like a half hour at a time, or even less.. give your body a chance to adapt

Keep working on becoming better.
Each small step forward is good.

Success isnt always quick.

No, don't drink! You're doing so well. Don't throw that away.
