I'm curious if any here have had success getting others into any type of fasting and what your techniques were. I've had a few successes, but overall it is very difficult. This has always been a tough sell for me. You easily get their attention, you start listing off the health benefits etc and THEN you drop the bomb, 'it involves you not eating certain times of the day'. First comes the blank stare, aaaaand now you've lost them. This must be crazy talk right? If there's one thing you don't do these days it's telling people when they can eat. I think part of this stems from food addiction, and you're asking them to turn over their drugs for 16hrs. When I attempt to coax a friend or family member into fasting, it's because I'm concerned about their wellbeing. I see someone with very high-risk factors that is turning a dangerous corner if there is no intervention. Fasting methods as an intervention are as easy and effective as it gets. It's free, and for the most part effortless, letting nature do what it does best. I'm interested to hear your stories.
