  1. Fast-5

    Hi I know this is an old thread but I googled fast 5 and this came up. Isn't anyone doing this anymore? I am enjoying this diet. I like the discipline and simplicity of it. I feel that it is good for the body and soul to rediscover hunger.This is actually easier for me than forcing myself to follow someone else's diet dogma. Weighing portions, counting calorie or carbs or fiber etc.I think that kind of dieting became an obsession. I was always thinking about food. The fast 5 way, I get hungry, look at the clock, and reassure myself that dinner is coming up soon.My break fast is very important and I plan it well ahead. It is usually something simple and satisfying , like oatmeal or eggs. I have my break fast at 4:00 in the afternoon and my main meal at 6:30 or 7:00. The first three days were hard but after that my body seemed to fall into the routine and my mind relaxed. I still get hungry at 3:30 but I look forward to my meal. Appetite is the best spice...I've been on the diet two weeks and have lost about 7 lbs. But I have alot to lose and the truly overweight experience faster weightloss than those with only ten lbs to lose. It is easier to fast when you are busy. The day takes care of itself. One caveat though... do not drink alcohol before dinner, your tolerance will drop. I drink wine or port or a coffee drink as desert. A benefit has been that I am very regular.I feel that this will be how I eat forever.
  2. looking for inspiration

    Hi, I'm new and looking for inspiration. I would like a more centered life. A life centered outside of myself. I am a novice at meditation. Does anyone recommend a book or video that can help me?
