For this intermittent fast I plan to fast on negligible calories ( entheo-fasting, Water Fasting or green juice fasting)on the weekdays and then eat anything ( I changed my mind about the strict diet) on the weekends. ( By balancing freedom and restriction I'll have a better chance of succeeding with this). I hope I can stick this through for 3 months before I attempt a long term water fast.
If I drop below 80 lbs which I don't think will happen, I'll make the conscious choice to stop before the end of 3 months. My mind presents a bigger obstacle than getting too skinny right now, though I have gotten that way in the past but under totally different circumstances.
I hear what you say about keeping it clean and just doing water and I definitely respect that choice and feel it takes first place when it comes to liquid fasting. I would do the same but I don't quite feel pure enough just yet. I still consider myself a compulsive binge eater and entheogens provide a way to look closer and see these issues in a different light and it makes it a little easier than Water Fasting which tends to shock me. I live in an area with a lot of pollution and this makes me more adaptable. I hope to get there eventually :).
While walking around, I found a church with AA meetings and grabbed their brochure and thought of you! I might try out your idea. I use to get drunk a lot and it might also help to go just to remind myself not to get in the habit again anyway.
I have a friend in LA but don't live there but maybe if I visit him I'll stop by those meetings and we can meet face to face. I feel soooo happy to finally meet someone like you. No one I have ever met shares these quirks andI feel so fortunate to have stumbled here at this time. It makes it so much easier to do this with the support.
Well, I have to get ready to meet a friend. Talk to you soon!
