I have also changed my diet and have started intermittent fasting. Intermittent fasting has plenty of benefits and there is a multitude of information about it online. Fasting also has many spiritual and cleansing benefits and I feel it aids me in my training and mediation.
I'm aiming for a total body transformation in the next 108 days. I'l post more on the methods I'm training at some point. I'm aiming at around 1,500 - 1,800 calories a day. Today I fasted for 16 hours before I ate my first meal and have had approximately 1,500 calories today. That is a little low for my weight.
Here is a video entry I posted to YouTube.
