I think it was in the first half of the 1990s that I met a vegan woman called Karen Williams, living in northern France, who was regularly fasting once a week. I think Thursdays, although it may well have been Fridays..
Anyhow, I pondered on it for a while, until deciding that it was something that I wanted to try out for myself..
So I did.. although many of my first attempts met with little success, as I regularly would find myself mid afternoon feeling so hungry and tempted so much by food that I chose to break fast and eat as normal...
Eventually though, I sort of broke into the rhythm of it, and my weekly fast became a regular habit that I've been especially consistent with during the last 5 or 6 years..
Now I look forward to fasting each week, and today is my none food day again today.
I strongly believe it has great benefits for the body.. giving it a welcome break from that constant onslaught of digestion and assimilation it otherwise must contend with daily.
