OMG, so this weekend was really hard. Basically I sat around and ate all weekend. Not good. I’m getting back on the wagon, back on my idea about fasting.
Have you heard about the Snake Juice Diet? It’s this very obnoxious guy who claims that you can lose 100 lbs in 60 days by fasting and drinking his “snake juice” which is salt and potassium to keep your electrolytes balanced.
His videos are pretty motivating though: Why Fat People Don’t Need to Eat
He says that if you are 100 lbs overweight that you can loose 2 lbs a day. I’m sure that slows down at some point, but DAMN!! 2 lbs a day!
If I can just make it through the first 3 days. Those are supposed to be the hardest. I only made it 36 hours, but I didn’t have any type of electrolyte replacement.
It’s just getting yourself in the right mindset to do it. It’s like running. I used to run every single day. I would get so frustrated because I would talk myself out of running before I started and then the whole time while I was running. It’s a constant battle.
Your body can handle a lot more than your mind can.
Fasting is the same for me. I’m just constantly talking myself out of it, making it way harder than it needs to be. I just need to gain a little bit of control over what goes on in my head. How does one even do that?!?! If I figure it out I’ll let you know.
The only thing I have found that even half way works is just waiting. Wait for a minute, for a few minutes, then a few minutes becomes and hour and before you know it its been 5 hours. It’s supposed to get easier at some point though. We shall see.
