Counting Down From Zero

Yes, I WILL take another Dew but I am gonna need you to add a Zero, cuz I'm trying to watch my figure.

Let's get this out of the way right away so I can label this a review.  I don't know what sort of witchcraft is going on over at PepsiCo, but this Mountain Dew Zero is Mr. Bombastic.  Nearly all of the taste of dew with none of the gut rot.   Each can takes me on a magical journey.  Just remember this important piece of advice as this blog is nothing if not educational.  Take that little slice of heaven out of the fridge and place it for EXACTLY 11 minutes prior to consuming.  You can thank me later.

Review over.  Oh, by the way...I refuse to believe that Pepsi Zero is in fact Pepsi Max.  Conspiracies abound because it tastes better.

Time to put on my big boy pants.  No, not metaphorically speaking...like seriously I don’t fit in my pants.  It feels like a tipping point where it will be a lot easier to just let go.  I need only walk towards the light of the fridge and si…

Hunger strike

Intermittent fasting.

I am hungry just thinking about it.

So.  Much.  Suffering.  And yet...here it is coming up on this road to nowhere.  By all accounts there is some solid science around the whole idea of starving yourself.  Sound fun?  Let’s see where this goes.

So a few months back I decided to experiment with intermittent fasting.  I mean it feels a little bit like a cure-all.  A way to turn back the clock.  A way to cleanse that bruised liver.  A way to be twenty one years old forever!

Fasting is hard.  Like seriously hard.

Still, I need to make this work.  We were trying it as a team and it held promise but like all things that are hard, we bailed.  I deleted the fasting app which is sort of the death sentence for my latest "fix my life" plan.  Perhaps I was hasty.

I plan to start one  tonight.  See, I have many reasons to do this.  It worked for Phil Mickelson and he is my age.  Dude dropped like 10 percent body fat and looked at least 4 weeks younger.  I need this.  I am sort of an "all or nothing" sort of guy.  Food, beer, spending money...it all becomes a frenzy I can't pull out of.  That is why fasting is appealing.  It offers me nothing.  I can get behind nothing.

If Phil can do it, I can do it.  Be the Phil.  10pm tonight the fast starts.  Be sure to tune in tomorrow to see how it is going or which excuse I use this time for bailing and failing.  I plan to talk a bit more about this in the days ahead so tune in for the why and prepare for spectacular flaming and burning.

Faster than the tasty?
