Entitled: Believing Oneself to be Inherently Deserving of Privileges or Special Treatment
- POSTED ON: May 29, 2016

False sense of entitlement.

"I am, therefore you owe me
all my heart’s desires.  I expect it.
I will not work for it.  I am above
having to earn what should be given
to me upon my demand.  I deserve it
simply because I am me. "

Intermittent Fasting & the Dangling Carrot
- POSTED ON: May 25, 2016

I recently received the comment:


“Phyllis Collins, I've been following you and have been a fan of yours.
Have u tried the 24 or 36 hour fasts? Was wondering what your experience was?”


I've done quite a lot of experiments with "modified" fasts --- like JUDDD & EOD, and with total water fasting as well. I’ve written quite a lot about this already.

The Donkey, the Stick,
and the Carrot,


an allegory applicable
to Intermittent Fasting.


"A farmer wants the donkey to take the load and travel. 


But, the donkey does not move.
He hits the donkey with a stick, but it still won’t move. 


So, he ties a carrot to the stick  and holds it in front of the donkey, just out of reach. 


The donkey wants to eat the carrot and moves forward. 


At the same time, the carrot also moves by the same distance.

The Donkey is me, or another “intermittent faster”.

The Stick is Fasting = eating zero or very small amounts of food on “fasting” days.

The Carrot is the Promise of eating whatever you want on non-fasting days.


"Just get through today, and tom...
