I shared this on Quora, because it gave me a good chuckle. You would not freaking believe some of the comments it got. I had introduced it as having given me a chuckle, you posted a disclaimer, and you bill yourself as a humorist. And STILL, there are people who didn’t get it. Thank your lucky stars for any sense of humor you have, people.
I haven’t seen the movie, but that looks very much like the Automat. They were around for a long time: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Automat
Thank you, Susan! There seems to be an overwhelming positive response to fasting for at least a minimum of 18 to 48 hours a week. Anything that makes us feel that good, can’t be bad.
A week or so ago, I had been fasting and worked out in the pool. During one fast burst cardio interval, I felt as if I never had to stop. It was great.

Thanks, Harvey! Sometimes it’s easy and sometimes more difficult. If there’s anything else going on, like if I didn’t sleep well, being hungry just makes it worse. But all in all, I really enjoy eating this way. I’ve lost more weight, but it’s a struggle.
I frequently get hangry! I’m thinking I want to eat a big meal, but as soon as I eat an apple, or a few of bites of cottage cheese, I feel better. That’s not strictly “fasting,” I guess, but why suffer?
Have a cup of bouillon or something. It takes a while to sip and in the meantime, you might feel satisfied.
Thank you, Katya! I’m glad you found it helpful. I think you’ll enjoy doing this after you get used to it, or maybe you’ll like it from the very start. It took me a little while.
I have found, after many experiences, that it’s better not to discuss fasting with people who don’t have any input in your life. Despite all the…
I have found the same. Low calorie diets always left me hungry. Eating breakfast means I’ll eat more all day. If I just wait a bit, I can wait until noon or later to eat. This obsession with breakfast always seemed insane to me. Most of us aren’t farmers up at 4 am and working for hours until lunch.
