do dating with a trans woman make you gay reddit

Intermittent fasting is pretty easy especially compared to not eating for 40 days! My hair started to shed like crazy but that might have been due to stress rather than the fast. Now I’ve got plenty of sprouts coming back in and I’m taking lots of supplements like Vitamin C and at least 4 multi-vitamins a day.  I’m not a morning person so skipping breakfast is easy and not really hungry by lunchtime so my one meal a day is dinner. Oh, I’ve managed to keep the weight off from the fast and lose some more.

Also with this plan is some pilates for better posture and spine health and in no time I’ll be rockin’ the skinny again.

vintage strawberriesI really wanted to keep going until real hunger set in and my tongue turned pink but alas, it was not to be. Persistent nausea hounded me day and night threatening to bring up whatever emptiness was lurking in my stomach. Maybe the lining, who knows but the taste in my mouth was awful.

The nausea and foul taste also keep me from getting my solid six hours of sleep and keeping my head propped up on a couple of pillows didn’t do much for my neck either.

So, this evening I started off by drinking diluted orange juice because it’s supposed to be the best for easing back into solid food but still it seems too acidic, even worse that the lemon water I’ve been drinking. What do experts know anyway?

I switched to tomato juice also diluted with water and it tastes really good! So good that I have to pace myself or I’d be slamming it down like Tequila shots. I’m not doing my own juicing so that leaves me with Bolthouse but that’s OK. I once owned a couple of juicers and it took about 5 minutes to juice the fruit or veggies and about 20 minutes to clean the thing. Maybe this isn’t the case with a vita-mix or one of those expensive models that cost a couple of grand but there is only so much room on the kitchen counter.

Tomorrow I’ll make some broth from potatoes, cabbage, celery, carrots and beets. I’m actually considering making cole slaw because cabbage is supposed to be really healthy. Yeah, I’ll muck it up with some mucus inducing sour cream but the good outweighs the bad, right? The only beets I’ve ever had were from a can so long ago that I don’t remember what they taste like so cooking them fresh should be interesting.

I’m not done with fasting since I’ve only lost 26 pounds and I still have arthritis to get rid of so I’ll take a break for a couple of weeks, drinking lots of juice, eating very light meals and then try another fast for five to seven days. After going forty days drinking water and/or lemonade a week without solid food should be a walk in the park.

menu graphicI like food. It’s a sensual pleasure but over the years I’ve developed an attitude towards it that I can take it or leave it. Right now I’m leaving it which is turning into a crashing bore. I have the luxury of being able to stay home and lay in bed while by body puts itself through the paces of detoxing the various organs. Can I have my mouth back, please? Oh, the taste! Awful!

Half the time if I get up too fast I’m dizzy and have to take a moment before I can proceed but it’s short walk to the kitchen to get my bottle of filtered water. Do I notice the organic eggs on the shelf below? Of course not! Do they remind me of the already cooked bacon strips in the freezer? Impossible! Why are starchy potatoes taunting me?

I should probably spend more time on the patio getting some fresh air and sunshine if I can get my nose of the books. I’m reading the Poldark saga by Winston Graham. There are twelve of them and I’m midway through The Four Swans which is number six. Demelza, you ignorant slut! I can understand how a man might lust after a married woman but to act upon it shows a clear lack of self control. Mind you I am not easily forgiving Ross for his transgression.

So, the menu for today is the same as it has been for the past 32 days. Lay in bed and read some, sip water and work on the continuing romance of Brian and Julie who are both novelists. They write a little too but spend more time in bed than I do actively between the sheets. Dear Brian has been awakened by the sex fairy after a long sleep with an unresponsive wife and now makes up for lost time. Are there really mature men with such libidos operating without little blue pills? Let’s hope there is a legion of hot blooded lusty Celts that know how to please a woman. Go big or go home.

In a week it will be forty days and nights of just water. I won’t be ending the fast until my body tells me to by exhibiting extreme hunger and a pink tongue. It’s doubtful that a week will make the difference because I’m a long way from being emaciated and well, I’m in it for the long haul regardless of well meaning relatives who think I’m crazy and who don’t understand the difference between fasting and starving.

Day 25 Water Only Fast

corset with rosesWell here we are at Day 25 of the really boring water fast. What’s for lunch? Water. What’s for dinner? Water. I’m not really hungry but I do think about what I’m going to have after the fast breaks and I get past the transition period of juice and fruit. Cheeseburger and fries which is something that I don’t normally eat. Or maybe I’ll reward myself with a perfectly steamed artichoke with melted butter. Yum.

I’ve lost 20 pounds which mostly shows in my face that has lost it’s puffiness exposing my high cheekbones.That in itself is encouraging and inspires me to press on. Not that I need it. I’m all in and will see it through to the end whenever that is. What if it’s 60 days? Oh the boredom! That’s really the worst part is the limited diet of water and the horrid taste in the mouth.

See you next week when I’ll have crossed the 30 day mark and much to the surprise of my family I’ll still be kicking not having starved to death. Well meaning relatives are the enemy of the long fast!

40 Day Fast with Master Cleanse Lemonade

The fast started with a moment of synchronicity. First, the interior tremors started with all my nerve endings suddenly alive. Then came the loss of appetite over the next two days and finally a release of emotion from a very deep place came to the surface during meditation.

So, I decided to fast since I wasn’t hungry anyway and that was 11 days ago. I’ve fasted before just on water for 21 days so for this go-around 30 days seemed doable. If 30 why not 40 according to ancient rituals?

I’ve lost 8 lbs but I also feel cleaner which must be a reflection of the inner me revealing itself externally. The important thing to remember about Stanley Burrough’s Master Cleanse is to keep things moving and that means emptying out the intestines. The cleanse calls for a salt water flush where you gag down salt water and then wait for it come through. Not doing that. Or drink a laxative tea at bedtime which I’m not doing either because Senna gives me La Grippe. I’ve opted for Triphala and Psyllium husks that work slower but doesn’t chain me to the toilet.

Lemonade Fast

2 tbls fresh lemon juice

2 tbls maple syrup

pinch of cayenne pepper

10 oz. filtered water

Drink 6 glasses a day or up to 12. You can drink extra water but it’s not necessary. Coffee and tea are not allowed but I drink two cups of coffee three days a week and Yerba Mate the other days. Coffee is acidic but not toxic. I also supplement with 1/4 tsp of baking soda and 2 tbls of Bragg apple cider vinegar in water occasionally just for some extra alkaline goodness.

In the past I’ve used a magnesium based cleanser, Mag 02 and I think there’s Oxy Clean that does the same thing. Not recommended unless you can surf the waves of nausea while your guts spill into the porcelain receptacle. It’s like the worst colonic ever! However, afterwards the clarity is incredible. After 40 days of fasting I expect to have the same clear head that is nothing short of spiritual.

If you try this, do not even think about farting. Just don’t do it. You’ll have enough shit to deal with without that extra cleanup.

Oh, the fast is in conjunction with the Dr. Joe video I posted prior so all the time I would normally spend shopping and preparing meals can be diverted to meditation where future reality replaces what I currently perceive as the present.

Update: Day 14 I’ve revised  the fast to be water only after reading Dr. Herbert Shelton’s books. Dr. Shelton ran a fasting clinic in the 1930s and observed thousands of patients repair their bodies through fasting. He advocates not putting a time constraint on the length of the fast but letting the wisdom of the body determine when it’s over by producing a clean and pink tongue and real hunger, not simply appetite.

So how much water? Dr. Shelton says to drink only when thirsty and forced liquid overburdens the system by waterlogging the tissues. Bed rest is recommended unless you are trying to lose weight then activity is beneficial for quicker weight loss. He also avoids the use of enemas and purgatives claiming the body will rid itself of waste naturally when it’s ready to let go of it which may be during the fast or afterwards when food is resumed.
