a quote for when you have lost someone and feel emotionally stuck

grieve. so that you can be free to feel something else.  -Nayyirah Waheed
You may have attempted to go cold turkey, so to speak, from food and dove feet first into a water fast. The first few hours, you may have thought to yourself that you felt fine, felt amazing,  actually, and really thought that you would survive those measly few hours without eating. And maybe you did...but maybe you didn't. Maybe you started salivating like a wild beast as the smell of freshly baked éclairs or jalapeño cheddar bagels wafted through your open New York City window and knew that you would die if you didn't get one... or both. You definitely have to have both now and a 2-liter sprite to wash the stickiness of the chocolate and sun-dried tomato cream cheese from your traitorous throat.

The Struggle of Beginning Fasting: Understanding the Side Effects

Fatigue. All I feel is tired today. Tired and the familiar achy feeling I get in my joints after I haven’t fasted in a long
You feel fine...at first. If you're lucky. You're feeling on top of the world and like you can handle anything. You're thinking to yourself, "This is not so bad. I can do this every day...well, I could, if I didn't like eating so much." And you're right, you could do it every day for awhile... because the average person can live without food for about a month. You're feeling like you could be one of the people strong enough to do that...until 5 o'clock rolls around and your stomach bottoms out and there's nothing but water in your entire digestive system. Digestion can be such a slow process. Especially if you're really into carbs and fried foods the way most people are, and cheese. These sorts of things stick to your insides, making your body work extra hard to digest them. So, unless you have a high metabolism, it may take about 12 hours before your body is even aware that you're fasting.

How Day One of Water Fasting Feels to Someone With Poor Eating Habits

You feel fine…at first. If you’re lucky. You’re feeling on top of the world and like you can handle anything. You’re thinking to yourself, “This
So, should we? Really,  Americans snatching up the cuisine of other cultures and turning them into something new, is nothing new. America has always had a voracious appetite for culture snatching. If you don't believe that, how do you think stuffed crust pizzas evolved? Native American "inspired" shirts and sweaters? The obsession with Native American headdresses? The "new phenomenon" of cornrows? ? Even this blog which focuses around matcha, sushi, yoga, and fasting (which are from different cultures, by the way). Why do I list fasting in that list? Because, in America, not eating for a day or several days is not something that anyone does by choice. It's a sign of not having enough, of poverty, or, to go in the other direction, of an eating disorder, but more on that later.
