A great assistance to fasting.

I usually add a zero calorie lemon flavor to my water and recently I started to add cayenne pepper to my water. It’s dramatically improved my fast experience. It makes things easier. There are lots of suggested health benefits to having cayenne pepper to your diet.

Blood pressure help

Chronic pain


And many other things.

I am not a doctor but I have noticed a difference in my experience using it more regularly.

If anyone has a great suggestions for use of cayenne pepper or any family recipe that would be great.

Have a great day!!


Intermittent Fasting

I am currently doing a 23/1 Fasting window. It’s been great. On the weekends I’ve been doing the 20/4 though. I have been losing on an average of 1/2 a pound a day. I’ve also learned that even if your weight fluctuates it’s good to keep track of your fat content.

Have a great day, I still have about 6 hours till dinner time.

Happy Halloween

I want to wish everyone a Happy Halloween. I hope the treats are better than the tricks. Halloween is always the first step towards family fun and good home cooking for thanksgiving and a wonderful Christmas season.

Halloween is always fun and games for me. Have a great night.

This is one of my favorite resources on Intermittent Fasting


I’m not directly affiliated with the YouTuber but I’m just sharing this video because his videos have been helpful to me.

I know it’s unusual to think about but.

I love food and that’s why I do Intermittent Fasting. I choose this lifestyle because I get to choose to fast longer if I know I’m going to eat out and enjoy a big meal with family and friends.


I get to enjoy steak and other meals like pizza. I usually try to stay away from pasta, breads and grains while I’m trying to keep the weight down but like I said I love food. And occasionally I get to enjoy a good meal.


I found that because I fast consistently I can eat some of these foods on special occasions and I don’t gain weight back. Now I’m not saying that I do this every day or week but I am human and well food is something that we all love and especially we socialize when eating.

I honestly don’t crave these foods all the time but it’s nice to know that if I want to it’s not a big deal.

One thing that I am happy about is I don’t have acid reflux anymore. After I lost the first 10 pounds I didn’t have the problem anymore.

My experiences have shown me that it’s very beneficial for me and I am much healthier. I always listen to my body and I never do anything that gets me out of sinc with it.

When I first started I started with the 18/6 schedule. I felt comfortable so I switched to 20/4 schedule and I started to shed weight like crazy. I was getting ready to go on a big hike with my son and I needed to lose as much as possible before I went so I did a 5 day water fast. It wasn’t as difficult as I thought it would be. Before I went on the hike I lost a total of 30 pounds. After the hike I lost about 15 more pounds. Which is almost 45 pounds. I’m trying to drop a little more weight because I still have to much fat percentage so I’m pushing hard this week. I have been just going with 1 meal per day this week and it’s working great. My meal is a little bigger than my usual meal but it feels great. So far this week I dropped about 4 pounds. It does fluctuate because I drink lots of water. But I’m positive that I will be able to get to my goal body fat mass.


(My disclaimer is that you should always study before you try anything new and consult your doctor about any concerns you have.)





I really miss the islands this time of year.

Check out this hike in Oregon

Wow this looks like a fun hike. Maybe I should plan a hike in this area. I’m not affiliated with the people on this video but it looks like a fun place to go.

What is Intermittent Fasting?



The Obesity Code

I have been doing Intermittent Fasting


I have been Intermittent Fasting since May of 2017. I already have lost from 227 lbs to 182. It’s been a great journey and because of it my acid reflux is gone and all my levels from my blood test show everything in the healthy zones.

If you have any questions about Intermittent Fasting let me know and I can help you decide what would fit your lifestyle.

All I can do is recommend things to you and help you find something that is and can work for you that isn’t uncomfortable and fit’s your lifestyle.

I highly recommend reading this book cause it explains Fasting in detail. Doctor Jason Fung explains everything very well.
