Also no booze this week.

Fingers crossed eh!?
No booze!

Ha ha--yeah, I've had to scale WAY back--just too many calories, and it keeps the liver busy with the alcohol instead of processessing fat. Plus, I found out the hard way that losing 100+ pounds will cut way back on your tolerance. Drank two half gallons of my favorite micro brew at camp back in November, started the third and the next thing I knew I was face down on the table.

Three days should be good--really about the shortest fasts I've done were around a week. I know Jason is right into the 24 hour thing (I know, I know, it's not "one meal a day") and I see the merit in that, but with all due respect, doesn't seem like "real" fasting, if you see what I mean.

Let us know how it goes--you just might feel so good you want to keep going.

Regards,
Michael
