Fasting Update: Three Months In

On DROdio

It’s been 13 weeks since I wrote the in-depth post on my fasting experiment (read that first if you haven't already), which I originally only expected to try for 8 weeks. But the results have been so life changing that I’ve decided to continue doing it through at least the end of the year, and possibly indefinitely. Here’s what I’ve learned and experienced over the past couple of months, along with the pro-tips I recommend for others interested in trying it themselves, and answers to the questions I get most often.

The main thing I’ve learned in the past couple of months is that fasting is deeply misunderstood by people, including the reasons for doing it, the science and nutrition behind it, the actual experience of fasting, how it makes you feel, and how best to be supportive of someone in your life who’s giving it a try. Fasting just isn’t mainstream enough to make sense to people, and they often immediately respond with “I could never do that” (which is how I used to also feel before really diving into it).

From my fasting experience I’ve also become convinced that the obesity epidemic in America can be solved by integrating fasting elements into our culture. I don’t know if fasting will ever reach that level of cultural prominance, but I do now know with certainty that there’s a solution out there that works, and although fasting is a very individual thing, I’m convinced that it could be codified into an approach that could work for anyone. This also means that if you are unhappy with your current level of health, fasting is something you can do to fix it. It may not be the only thing you can do, but from experience I can tell you that it is absolutely an approach that will work. If you’re serious about trying to become healthy, fasting will work.

Why The Slow Carb Diet Simply Can’t Fail

On Imported Blog

In a society of greedy CEOs and persuasive marketing, how does one fully trust the messages being displayed to them?

This is not a problem if you’re simply looking for a new pair of running shoes but when your health is the issue at hand, you need answers. Let’s be honest, those who profit from many of today’s popular diets and nutritional supplements are in no rush to let you know whether or not their product works.

It is situations like this when one must see through the bells, whistles, and celebrity endorsements and take a more critical look at things. Where better to get an unbiased, reliable opinion than your old Biology text book. If you were to review any of the fundamentals of how the human body works, I`m confident you`ll quickly see why the Slow Carb Diet can work for you.

The Diet:

The Slow Carb Diet utilizes the knowledge of the Glycemic Index which is a scale to measure how quickly and sharply a food with raise blood sugar levels. With the Slow Carb Diet, you avoid foods (including some which you may have initially perceived as beneficial in your weight loss journey) which rank high on the Glycemic Index. It promotes the consumption of lean proteins, vegetables, legumes and healthy oils.
