Finding your way
What is the point? I mean, we are living in some crazy times! Who would have thought that in this year, TWO THOUSAND AND NINETEEN HUNDRED YEARS, yes, 2019! (and if you are a Christian, let's also add "IN THE YEAR OF OUR LORD" -- who would have thought that a self-admitted sexual deviant, a known pervert and wife-cheater, four-time bankruptcy filer, and Fake Charity peddler: is now THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

I started "intermittent fasting" back in late September 2019 because my PCP (Primary Care Provider) told me to try it in order to wean myself out of rice (Asian Staple Food).

Of course, you are going to the bathroom more, but I also try to not succumb to the urination urge right away. Maybe wait about 15-20 minutes before succumbing to the urination urge. At 6 hours, I am ready for my first solid food. Instead of eating a full meal, I ate figs ( about 3-4 pieces).
It is amazing what the body can endure. At this time, your body actually loosens up and relaxes. It senses that you have food, but not a lot, so it also adapts. You settle back into your work or whatever you are doing. An hour after , again I drink my bottled water. Now the fasting is in full swing. We have reached almost 8 hours: one bottled water each hour plus 3-4 figs at the 6th hour mark. On the 10th hour mark, I eat 2-3 figs with half-a-bag of
