How I Prepare for Longer Fasts
Our 7 Day Alternate Day Fasting Challenge starts on October 11th. If you’re doing an ADF, that’s anywhere from 42 – 48 hours between meals (info on this challenge is pinned in Announcements).
I’ll tell you what I do to get myself ready... mentally and physically.
Knowing I have an extended fast coming up, I plan out projects that will keep me busy. The worst thing during extended fasts is BOREDOM! My fave projects are cleaning and organizing, because I love doing it! Projects like this keep me so busy that I have no time to think about food. I also find that watching tv triggers me (every time I see a DQ commercial OMG) so I try to only watch recorded shows so I can fast forward the commercials.
I set myself up for success by keeping my body moving. Projects like I mentioned above, but also a couple of walks a day, a gym session or doing errands. Being idol is the biggest sabotager when it comes to longer fasts.
