Warning. This method of weight loss is very dangerous. You should consult a doctor before attempting such extreme weight loss techniques. I am not a doctor. Proceed at your own risk.
A key to my weight loss was the need to know what the real weight of my body was. The real weight. The weight of my body minus food and water weight. The only way to arrive at that real weight is to go on a liquid only fast from solid foods for a few days. Then on the last day, abstain from liquids. As the body eliminates the lasts of its solids, and excess water weight: the weight on the scale will be a closer measurement to your actual body weight. Just the simple, no exercise, act of doing this will cause you to lose weight fast.
There are ways of managing this process to make it easier. If you get the timing just right, the last leg of the fast will end a few hours after waking. Meaning most of the last leg – which is the hardest part – is done while asleep.
Extremity of weight loss is determined by how often you do this. You must know… if you abuse this, it is sin. It is a sin that is very heinous, grave and could kill you. You can fall into gluttony over losing weight, fall into anorexia, and get very sick. Don’t do that. If you do that, that means you have learned nothing from me. And, it most certainly means you are not walking with the Lord in it.
Use the “true weight fast” to get healthy, not make yourself sick.
Most people weigh in before they do their business in the morning (#1). You are weighing the weight of you, plus everything you had before you went to bed. In this “true weight fast” you want to eliminate excess food and water weight before you weigh in. Do this when you eat once every 24 hrs. Eating once every 24hrs is a mini “true weight fast”.
Do the true weight fast once every three or four weeks, while you do the 24 hour fast as often as you can until you reach your goal weight.
And, it is okay to take days off and eat like a normal person. A normal healthy person. After eating like what is written above, you will never be able to live with a “Gluttonous you”.
Comfort vs. gluttony
Yesterday, hunger was so uncomfortable for me. It felt like a coat of some sort. Like it was on me. It made me feel crowded, and at times I found it hard to breath. Maybe, I was panicking. I desperately wanted to take the feeling off. Not by eating, but like… take it off. Like removing an oversized coat that is getting in the way.
I have to say, at times I felt claustrophobic. I thought eating would help, but when I did, I overate. I didn’t overeat in the sense that I pigged out. I had four slices of a very small pizza and a few bights of salad. It was overeating because my stomach was empty and I probably should have only had the salad. The feeling was made worse by eating.
Over the next few days, I want to dive deep into when desire for comfort becomes gluttony.
