When I first heard about fasting, I didn’t ever think I could go a day without food. How? Why? Well the more I learned the more intrigued I got. It’s a shame we have been lying to all our lives, because, there are people higher up that want us to be fat and die early from disease. When I started learning all the benefits of not eating, I was so excited I was ready. Keep in mind at that time I was up to 355 pounds. I began the intermittent fasting which was basically not eating for 18 hours or so I thought it was stricter than that. After I did this I while I saw no results except I lost maybe 40 of the pounds. I was eating less but little did I know you can’t have any drinks except plain tea, no sugar, black coffee, or water. Well it broke my heart but I kept trying only I decided in 2020 when I started to get closer with God, I kicked it up to a whole, day it felt so good, I decided to try for three but after trying, over and over I finally made it three days. I felt really good, until I ate. I actually felt good after that too, but it was a very short time after I ate. I encourage everyone to do their own research, but I have learned, that there are switches that turn on when we fast that heal our bodies. The blood sugar drops after three hours. Wait….. Isn’t that when school always told me to eat. After 12 hours your body switches from burning food, to fat. Then at about 14 hours your liver starts to produce ketones. I think this is when the (HGH) human growth hormone kicks on,in the body too. There are many more things as you keep going, but this is what started the motivation. I can happily say I am under 200 pounds, and I feel more energetic than I did in my 30s. It was no easy task and it took almost 4 years. But I’ve learned more in that time than I ever imagined.


My name is James Carter, and you are visiting breaking bad habits. I believe everyone has habits, good and bad. When I was 34 years old, I woke up and looked in the mirror. I was shocked, I had been drinking every night for so long, that I was fat. I weighed 355 pounds, and ran out of breathe and almost passed out to try and tie my shoes. This was the day I started to wake up. I had a long journey ahead of me, but with prayer, meditation, fasting and exercise I was on my way. It’s been 6 years since then I’ve quit most of my bad habits, and I’m down to below 200 pounds. I have to be honest, that day in 2014 I never dreamed I would have gotten this far. If someone like me can quit, so can you.
