Clear starting points are often important for making real changes. This can give you a powerful boost, which can continue to carry you even after you have stopped fasting.

Thus, if a person fasts for 2 days in a week, he/ she may consume more calorie dense, unhealthy foods than the remaining 5 days. Long-Term Obesity: During intermittent fasting if a person ends up eating more than the prescribed energy goals, then it may lead to weight gain rather than weight loss. It may also give rise to other health conditions that are associated with weight gain and obesity.

Many people, including me and Lauren do not like to fast. For me and Lauren, fasting was difficult. Often times we might forget that we are supposed to fast that day or other times we are just so hungry that we break down and eat a snack or a sandwich.

It’ s more difficult to focus and recite what you have taught yourself when studying , because we only remember the distractions.

Introduction I want to congratulate and express my utmost gratitude for downloading the book, “Reflexive Spirituality: Mind, Meaning, and Modernity.” Have you ever had that one moment in life when you just stop, sit for a while, and stare how the world endlessly and quickly flashes against your eyes? You look at how everyone was busy chasing moments of life as if they will always be left behind; How everyone is too preoccupied on the same stubborn demands of the latest fads; How the world constantly changed from its primitive mindset up to a much broader horizon of thoughts.

Independent Reading Reflection At the start of a new quarter, I challenged myself to read more.
