For about the last year or so I’ve followed the 5:2 Diet.

This diet basically has you eating “normally” five days out of the week, but two days a week, limiting your eating to 600 calories (if you’re a man) for the “fast days”.

Beyond the 5:2 Diet, I did a 21-day cleanse/purification in February.  But the last couple of days I’ve fallen off a bit with my consumption.  And I’ve also found myself in a funk I need to shake loose.

So today I’m taking this fast day a step further, and not going to eat anything.  Drink a lot of water, yes.  But in effort to reset my “system” and my attitude, I’m on the fast today.

Sometimes it’s a good idea to shake things up  a bit.  I find this is particularly useful if you find you’re not quite feeling yourself normal, a little off kilter, etc.  Fasting can be a good way to do this, since you leave yourself with more time for other things (since you’re not eating) , and it heightens your senses and self-awareness.

Stay tuned for the results.

Oh yes, and if you’re interested in learning more about the 5:2 Diet, a good resource can be found here.
