Starving Girl: My 30-day experience with the miracle of intermittent fasting and prayer

Lofgreen, an overweight 43 year-old mother of six children was overwhelmed and living in a state of procrastination until one day she reached bottom. She decided to change her life and stepped into the world of hunger. Why would she put herself in such a position? Her Christian faith encouraged fasting, an observance she’d ignored for twenty years. Could there be more to this timeless religious practice than she realized? Determined, she struggled, resented, fought and eventually rejoiced in the lessons she learned from daily 16-hour intermittent fasts. She constantly asked God questions: Why was obesity wide-spread? Why did some have so much while others starved? Why was body size related to self-worth? Why had she turned to food after being sexually abused? While combating hunger, she learned how the difficult decisions in her life shaped her greatest potential and that big dreams are only possible if she lived in the present. She experienced improved relationships with her family, tremendous clarity of mind and weight loss. In essence, the dreams she’d long buried became reality.
