Stuff to Read While You’re Pretending to Work: 9/6/2011
I literally just got back from Martha’s Vineyard this afternoon…………yes, it was fantastical. I spent two days doing nothing but taking power naps, eating dead animal flesh, catching up on some reading, and making fun of all the dudes on the island who wore sweater vests.
Anyways, it’s back to reality, and because I was away for the extended holiday weekend (and subsequently, Lisa forbade me from bringing my laptop with me), I skipped out on posting anything yesterday. Sorry. But, because I love my readers so much – and because I didn’t want to leave you hanging for two straight days – here’s a little sumthin sumthin to keep you occupied until tomorrow.

Three Methods of Intermittent Fasting – Nia Shanks
Recently, I’ve been getting a lot of inquiries concerning my thoughts on intermittent fasting. For those who have no idea what the heck I’m talking about, it’s essentially a fairly hard-core way of dieting that is generally performed in one of three ways:
- 24 hour fasts one to two times per week
- Daily 14-16 hour fasts
- Daily partial fasts for 20 hours with one big meal
In the post above, Nia drops some MAJOR knowledge bombs and breaks down each scenario. If intermittent fasting is something you’re interested in and/or is something you’ve been contemplating, I’d highly recommend reading this first.
