Skipped Supper

I didn't exactly intend to skip dinner last night, it just kinda happened.  Normally I eat dinner within an hour or so after I get off of work but last night I had kind of an interesting day at work that I couldn't get out of my head so I kinda just lazed around for a couple of hours after work musing on it.  Finally I suggested to Snackers that we go out to eat because we'd forgotten to take anything out of the freezer for supper and all we had available was junk food.  He agreed but also wanted to take the dogs to the dog park so we took them with us with the intent of picking something up to eat on the way home.

Well we spent about an hour and a half at the dog park and by then it was almost 9 o'clock.  I hate eating that late so we just came home and after a long look in both the fridge and pantry I just couldn't wrap my head around anything that looked good so I gave up and went to bed instead.  Woops?  Bah, I'm sure skipping supper every once in a while can't hurt too bad.

  1. Are you kidding me?!?? As I will someday get you to realize, Intermittent Fasting is perfectly safe and healthy. Loads of recent research are linking it to tons of good-health markers (blood tests and such) and associating it with increased longevity and vitality.

    You practiced IF by skipping dinner.
    Nothing bad about that.
    Research is showing it, in fact, does not lead to metabolism-slowdown... you have to skip eating for a whole lot longer than 1 or 2 meals in order to suffer metabolic decline... from what I've been reading, you have to go longer than 3 straight days.

    IF gives your body a chance to rest, cleanse your digestive-system, and drive more of it's efforts into boosting your immune system.

    Ever heard the old adage, "feed a fever, starve a cold" -- it wasn't said for nothing. Going on short fasts actually boost your immune system and make your hormones to better regulate -- causing "bad" ones to be suppressed and "good" ones to spike like crazy.

    It's good for you.
    Don't worry.
    Be happy.

    (note: it'd be better if you started passing on the processed carbs and grains, but that's another day I suppose)
