I took on the challenge of a 3 day water fast this week after my Napa Valley Marathon. What a great way to recover. I wanted to see what it was like to go multiple days fasting on nothing but water. I lived and it was not too bad. Food really looks and tastes good now. It was sort of like a marathon. At mile 15 you start to experience some discomfort and the last 6 miles can be very uncomfortable but tolerable. The last of of the fast was particularly challenging when I interviewed Timaree Hagenburger, MPH, RD. She is a professor of nutrition as well as the auther of the new book called The Foodie Bar Way. It is unique in that it is laid out in sections giving choices like at a salad bar with the ability to “raise the bar” and make them even more nutrient dense. She writes about oatmeal bars, mediterranean fajita bars, pizza bars, and loaded potato bars to name a few. The photography is amazing and all of the dishes are oil free and nutrient dense. It gives guidelines for the recipes or allow for improverization to meet your own tastes and needs. Check her and her book out at www.
