    I find that when I'm fasted (more than 10 hours without food intake) I tend to be 100% focused on whatever it is I need to
    accomplish & I feel completely energized. When I eat food, I typically eat more than I should because I just like to eat a lot,
    though I do workout a good 4-5 times a week intensely so not worried of weight gain.

    Any of you here tried intermittent fasting? Share your thoughts if you have. It's pretty much what I'll be practicing hard on the next few months
    to master my food cravings and get more work done when I'm in that ZONE, in a fasted state. I find when I break my fast I become
    terrible with even the most simple tasks until it wares off. Although the outcome of a fasted state may be different for others, some may
    feel weak in a fasted state while others such as myself, feel an increased positive mood & state of mind.

    Time to focus on the FAST! Perhaps add in some Meditation!

    Hmm, thanks for sharing this. I'm definitely going to try because I have a lot of websites I need to be working on lately and some coding to do, but I always seem to get distracted and mess some things up. Bookmarked

    If I need to focus, I do stuff like hitting one finger with a hammer. The pain reminds me what happen when you fail. It works for me.

    I don't know about the mindset but I do water fasting for 3 days once in a couple of months. It is healthy and obviously I can't stay active for more than 12-14 hours from the start of the fast.
    It reboots your body and keeps it healthier from all the junk food you ate in the last two months. :)
