Hey Mocha Family,
Have you ever heard insanity defined as doing the same thing over and over, while expecting a different result? That was me. Despite my troubling symptoms, I continued to eat in the same way day by day. I am so grateful for our yearly progressive fast (every January), and finally being able to consider the possibility that I should try something radically different.
Intermittent fasting is being discussed regularly on Youtube. I was able to find a slew of videos along with articles online. In fact, the volume of information may be overwhelming. Since January, I've been trying a number of variations of when to eat and fast. I have finally found my sweet spot. I share about it all candidly in this longer than usual video.
Initially, I was hesitant to reveal so much because of the controversy around choosing not to eat. As a social work professional, I know all about eating disorders and the dangers of developing a distorted body image. My journey is about helping my body to gain enough time to process my food, and managing my sugar so that I have enough energy to make it through my day without a caffeine crutch.
I can't lie, though. The weight loss is a wonderful bonus.
I am sharing my story for the other "me" out there, struggling to make it through their busy life. Maybe this will work for you too.
