Intermittent Fasting- For Beginners

Curious about fasting but not sure where to start?

I get it! 

There is a wealth of information available about fasting on the interwebs, and it can be overwhelming.

While fasting may seem to have gained popularity recently, it goes all the way back to biblical times. 

There are so many health advantages associated with fasting, as well as the spiritual benefits. 

Three years ago, I decided to delve into the fasting world.

6 Reasons You Should Be Fasting

What do you think of when you hear the word, "fasting?"

Having to give up certain foods?


If you check the Bible for details on fasting, you will find kings and prophets fasting with a purpose—the purpose of clearing their minds, and their stomachs, so they could be in a position to hear from God to receive direction for decisions they were facing.

3 Myths About Losing Weight- Debunked

There seems to be a new diet out every day claiming to be the "miracle" that will help you lose weight.  


They promise if you eliminate this one thing or add that one thing or do this one exercise, you will lose weight and maybe have rock hard abs.


If losing weight and getting abs are that simple, how come none of it works?  I mean if this is really the case shouldn’t I be able to make a few tweaks and add an exercise and have those air-brushed abs? Hey, it’s about to be summer, after all.

Oh, that’s not what how it works? Dang it! If only…

Well, now what? What's the TRUTH?  

Ok, here’s the deal, what you eat matters.  There, I said it.  Ugh!  Why must this be so?!?! 

I know, I know.   I wish somehow magically I could make this reality disappear, but it is FACT.  What we put into our bodies makes the majority of the difference in how we look, feel and function.  NUTRITION MATTERS.   

We have been fed lots of misleading information over the years about how to lose weight and be healthy.  Eat less and exercise more, right? WRONG!  

Yes, ultimately on some level calories matter, but to only focus on the number of calories you eat is doing your body and your brain a disservice.  I want to bring to your attention a handful of other, more relevant, things to pay attention to and the related myths we hear.

Have you ever made a commitment but decided to throw in the towel?

You started to believe the lies in your head or came up with reasons to justify your indulgence?  

I’m no expert on nutrition, and thankfully there are experts in the Tribe that can give you qualified advice. What I can do is speak from personal experience from my ongoing health journey and pass on some tips to help you overcome some roadblocks on your path to a healthy life.   

There are many great books, websites, and podcasts that have helped me learn more about nutrition, exercise, and overall healthy lifestyles.  Instead of going into all of that now, I want to share with you how I was able to make one good decision because that is what I feel God calls us to do--make one good decision at a time, humbly walking towards him.

I was able to say no to this delicious box of Duck Donuts that a friend surprised me with last weekend, and this one good decision is part of my journey to humbly walk towards God, one step at a time.
