A Study of Prolonged Fasting (Francis Gano Benedict)

Fasting has been around for thousands of year.

Fasting Books


  1. Hi Anna!

    I also want to start "eating one meal a day". I just started this three days ago, eating only dinner. But for some reason, my stomach hurts too much disabling me to eat two or even one bite....

    How were you able to transition to eating once a day?

    Also how many calories do you eat in that one meal?

  2. Hi, if you are a beginner, eating one meal a day everyday may be difficult. Try to do it twice a week or whenever you feel comfortable. I didn't have much difficulties druing transition as I had been terribly overloading my stomach for many years. Fasting allows my whole body and stomach to rest and made me feel much much better. As for my one meal, I never count calories, but it's just any normal meal.

  3. Yeah, you're probably right, I may be transitioning a bit too quickly, since my body has been used to eating many meals throughout the day.

    I'm trying to overcome my compulsive binge disorder and i think this is the best way to fix it.

    So is that one meal large? small? or normal?

    And from the looks of your food blog, you definitely aren't restricting anything. But do you actually eat all of that (the plates of foods you took pictures of)??

  4. Good question. You're really go through my blogs. Trust you are very committed to weight loss. My one meals are usually normal, unless I'm doing festival or celebration. But after that, couple of fasting will bring me back to normal. Re my food blog, I eat anything except human and 99.9% of the photos are taken from my dining table. ie. I actaully eat them.
