Friday Fast
« on: August 30, 2012, 03:27:46 PM »
Okay, I did this all the time in college w/ my fraternity, and my wimpy-ness factor since then has increased by a factor of five. It is high time to get back on the road to badassity, and kick my need for food. I will be fasting tomorrow, 24-hours. No binge eating before or after. All I will be having is water.

Interesting idea.  A variation and less difficult version that I consider is dusting off the old war theme of "Meatless Mondays."  Pick a day of the week without consuming meat.  That pretty much forces you to save money and eat healthier in the process.

I've been playing with this and I like it.

A good book on different fasting styles.

You fasted on Friday's with your fraternity. Sounds like a recipe for a drunk disaster come Friday night ;)

Challenge accepted, Yolfer... even if I was doing it anyway. Extra hardcore challenge for those inclined: no drink, either.

It went pretty well. How was yours? I think it's badass that we've been doing this for 4000 years and the rest of the MMM community is just catching on :)

It went smoothly, glad to hear yours did as well. My people are actually a bit late to the party, but we're finally starting to get it. You know what's said, though... nothing new under the sun. ;)
