My first 24 hour fast and what I learned from it

For anyone looking to try fasting, start small.  Try 12 hours and see how it goes.  Or, do what I did, set some plans, and jump in for 24 hours.  What’s the worst that will happen?  If you start feeling light headed, just eat something.  You learned your limit for now.  Oh, and if you have a medical issue, like low blood sugar, don’t try this without consulting a doctor, you may actually die.Before I started fasting I would graze all day, from the moment I woke up to the moment I went to bed. CrossFit Pittsburgh  Although I was eating a healthy balanced diet I could not lose the extra weight and I was frustrated. I worked out all the time and found that I was picking up weight instead of losing it. I turned to fasting to help me solve my weight loss issue.

During a recent staff meeting Cross Fit Gyms In Pittsburgh, Coach Jen and I were talking about 2018 and where we are headed as a gym/community/fitness leader in the area, and our conversation migrated from all that CrossFit has to offer, to the negative aspects of our society that are a direct result of an overly technological environment.


News stories are everywhere talking about how inundated we are with beeps, buzzes, alerts, reminders, vibrations, etc. It started with the invention of the cellular telephone and Electronic Mail. Two forms of communications that were designed to speed up contact between two or more people. Then the two were put together and we added the internet, games, and apps to mini computers that could be carried in our pockets at all times.
