My experience on the intermittent fasting
I often keep Monday as my fast day, Monday seems to suit me well after weekends eating. I fast usually max once a week for about 24 hours.
I usually drink a lot water, sometimes green tea or other teas.
With intermittent fasting like this I have experienced great feeling states. In the middle of the day I feel like sliding in to ‘in the moment’ state and stay in that, feeling great.
The other major benefit is that when I fast I have so much time to do a lot of work and I really notice how much we spend time everyday on preparing food and eating. Those days you have more time to do some tasks which you may have been putting aside for a long time. Also it is great time for some meditation.
After just these benefits I’m a big fan of fasting and definitely will continue to fast like once a week for 24 hours.
But on top of this I get many other benefits, like many health benefits which of course you may not instantly see, but they will promote longevity.
With intermittent fasting you also get a boost on your Human Growth Hormone(HGH) production, which is going to keep you young and benefit you a lot in exercise.
“Fasting can trigger a dramatic rise in human growth hormone (HGH), also known as “the fitness hormone.” Recent research found fasting raised HGH by 1,300 percent in women and 2,000 percent in men!”
Major libido boost is also to be noted.
One positive thing is also that I save a lot money with food costs by fasting one day of the week, and that money can be further invested into some life improving things.
I learned a lot from intermittent fasting by reading Eat Stop Eat book by Brad Pilon.

Few quotes from the book
“By default, because you do not consume anything while you are fasting, research on
fasting contains very little bias from large food company funding. After all, why would
a food company spend money proving there is a benefit to eating less of their
“Throughout history, various cultures have used fasting in many different types of
rituals and celebrations, and still use fasting within those traditions to this day.
Almost all major religions have a degree of fasting built into them. From political
protests to healing rituals, and even for good-old weight loss, there are many
historical accounts of various people fasting for different reasons. With the exception
of fasting for religious purposes, the practice of fasting has all but disappeared in
“Our ancestors also fasted simply due to the poor availability of food. While modernday
humans in many developed countries are used to being able to eat a solid three
meals per day, animals in the wild eat only when food is available, and most likely this
is also how our hunter-gatherer ancestors ate.”
“And let’s not forget that the majority of the world’s population still lives without
adequate food supply. The fact that we’re faced with a problem of too much food
makes us the lucky ones. Of course, this creates an odd sort of irony in the fact that
you are now reading a book about how to deal with the consequences of the extra
