17/7 Intermittent Fasting

This is my 19th week since I began intermittent fasting. That means I have done it for over 4 months now. I started with the 16/8 method, where I fast 16 hours a day, but recently, especially since the 4th month, I have been fasting about 17 hours a day. This is because people like Dr. Mindy Pelz say that it is more effective if you fast for 17 hours.

The 333rd Post and the Updated Version of The Ikigai Diet

I am so excited to announce that I have updated The Ikigai Diet book on my 333rd post.

Yes, this is the 333rd post since I began this blog.

As you know I started doing intermittent fasting in February, and have incorporated autophagy in the Ikigai Diet since then. Therefore I decided to update the book to add that element. 

Autophagy Boosting Spermidine filled Fiber Rich Super Natto Dish

I had a special natto dish. It is steamed vegetables with kimchi and natto.  It has ginger, garlic, carrots, onions, broccoli, Shimeji mushroom, burdock, daikon leaves, and hijiki seaweed. I mixed them with natto and kimchi, and added olive oil, hemp seeds, and soy sauce. 

Hare and Ke Intermittent Fasting

It has been three months since I began this intermittent fasting and I have kind of figured out the optimal way of doing it.

I decided to call it Hare and Ke Intermittent Fasting.

Autophagy Activating Vegetable Fast

Now that I have completed the first three months of my intermittent fasting, I began a new phase. I started having only vegetables for lunch on Wednesday.
