Now that you have all the information you need to start intermittent fasting, you have to now make a decision. This is the hardest part. A lot of people approach weight loss programs like they would when they’re trying to make a decision at a fast food joint. Maybe today you’ll get the quarter pounder and a few hours from now, you’ll get the two-piece chicken meal.
It doesn’t work that way. You have to make a decision regarding where you want to take your life.
Please understand that intermittent fasting is not just about losing weight. If you think about it hard enough and you pay close attention to its inner workings, it really is all about retaking ownership over the internal processes of your life.
Everybody eats. Everybody has an eating schedule. However, the problem is they let these factors take over their lives. Before they know it, their belly rules their brain, and their hunger has taken over their willpower.
They eat, eat, and eat, and they’re never full. They drink, drink, and drink, but their thirst is never quenched. They never feel complete. They’re always feeling inadequate. They’re on edge.
I know this sounds like I’m talking about something bigger than a simple dietary choice, and I am. I don’t mean to be the bringer of bad news here, but your weight problem and challenges are all symptoms of something bigger.
Intermittent fastening, when done properly, enables you to develop self-discipline. Self-discipline leads to self-control. Self-control leads to renewed self-ownership.
It’s very easy to feel powerless when you look in the mirror and you see that you’ve let your body go. It’s tempting to think that there’s really not much you could do about it. It just happened, but you know that’s a lie. Life doesn’t just happen. At some point in time, at some level or other, you let it happen.
When you adopt intermittent fasting and achieve a breakthrough, you start the process of retaking ownership over your life. Who says you have to be the guy or gal who constantly keeps saying, “What happened throughout your life?”
Retake your ability to make things happen. I wish you nothing but happiness, success, and health!
