The power of paleo for extended fasts.

I’ve been feeling a little itchy in the throat lately.

In an effort to ramp up my immune system and hopefully stop myself from getting sick, I’m pulling off an extended fast today.

Why would I do such a thing?

I already told you about the benefits of fasting [here]. It goes well beyond simple calorie restriction or fat loss, and extends into hormone ssecretion and immune system effects! Many studies even show it has beneficial effects during cancer treatment, resulting in higher cure rates.

So far I can tell you it’s going very well. My last meal was 6:00 PM last night. I haven’t consumed anything today except 2 cups of black tea. It’s now 1:00 PM. I have not felt one hunger pang all day. I could easily eat, but I don’t need to.

I’ll probably carry this all the way out to 5:00 PM, without thinking twice.

All thanks to my regular high fat, nutrient dense diet.

I don’t feel tired. I don’t feel fatigued. I actually feel very normal and “balanced”. No mood swings or anything. I’m on a nice even keel. And very clear of mind.

It’s all about nutrient density!

Get Stoneage!
